Through Qoya (combining movement, ritual, and community), aligned with the Taurus New Moon, we sow seeds to nourish richness and fertility, and come together to share the nectar. This dance is an embodied prayer to encircle ourselves and each other with Effulgence: the radiant splendor of the full spectrum of being.

Stephanie and Virginia are impassioned to create powerful containers for embodied remembrance, prayer, and celebration. We bring individuals together in community in aligment with the supreme intelligence of Nature.

New Moons are planting times. The luminaries (Sun and Moon), representative of both conscious and unconscious elements of being, join together under this cosmic marriage we humans on Earth can use to support creative manifestation.

Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign. Things that are planted now will definitively take root. Gather your intentions.Together we affirm the wisest and most beneficial investments, planting seeds of fertile growth as we return to fuller light of the approaching summer.

Now, more than ever, it is of crucial importance to sow intentions of love and harmony. And to Dance! Always to Dance.

Stephanie and Virginia have been brainstorming this workshop for months, and chosen the date of May 7. Virginia recently made pilgrimage to many Mayan sites in Mexico. At Palenque, she learned that May 7th is a holy day to the indigenous Maya. The first day of the rainy season, it is the day of planting corn and welcoming the abundant fruit of the land so that people can survive and prosper. This is the spirit behind our potent gathering. Let us all plant good corn in our lives, on this sweetest Earth.
