HUMMINGBIRD WAZIFAH & DANCE RETREATS



OCTOBER 8-11, LONG WEEKEND, WAZIFAH DANCE IMMERSION

OCTOBER 11-14, WAZIFAH SESSHIN

Beloved Dancing and Hummingbird friends, we would like to invite you to our next event: 


Hummingbird ZoomWazifah Retreat 

June 20-22, 2020    

Loving the Lion

with Maboud, Tara Andrea, Tawwaba and Sara Morgan  








Our first Zoom Retreat surprised us by being so nourishing,  that we decided to have another one relatively soon. These are challenging times and to be able to drop into the “Field”  might help us to feel ourselves, our sangha, our sense of the sacred,  and to steer away from a sense of “sterilized humanity”. This next weekend will be around Fathers Day for a change - all our Hummingbird Retreats have been around Mothers Day and that sparked the theme of Loving the Lion.


The lion of the earth, with its intense roar, evokes a sense of awe and power. The expression of divine power in the teachings of Buddha are sometimes referred to as “The Lion’s Roar”. We may ask ourselves,  how we relate to our own power, the power of others?  How does our relationship to power influence our capacity for leadership, majesty, courage, authority, protectiveness, and ferociousness?  As a wazifah caravan we will create a field of exploration to consider how these energies of our humanity have influenced us, and how they may be impacting our ability to mature into our potential and navigate through the challenges of our world.  We will contemplate “Loving the Lion,” through Maboud & Tara Andrea’s original wazifah dances, DUP,  intoning the wazaif, guided embodiment processes, silence and sharing our experiences, stories and insights.
