The festival aims to bring together some of the UK’s best teachers and performers in Middle Eastern, Near Eastern, North African, Turkish and Persian; Music, Song and Dance to share their knowledge and entertain. In many of the workshops the components of music, song, rhythm and dance are studied separately at various levels to then be brought together later on.

Every evening we are treated to performances from our teachers as well as guest performers for dancing or listening pleasure. We welcome all levels of dancers and musicians, from beginner to professional.

About the workshop:

This is a creative movement immersive workshop to help you break through to your inner goddess and explore the mysteries of these goddess archetypes through art, music and myth. 

Last Summer we explored the Lover and the Queen, Aphrodite and Hera through various Ritual Embodiment keys such as moving meditation, walk, posture and powerful archetypal gesture work.

This year, we will be exploring the Wild Woman and the Warrior: Artemis and Athena.
Within every woman move primal forces represented by the Goddess in Her many aspects. 

  • Wild Artemis is the Intuitive and Instinctual power of the Feminine Divine, earthy and indomitable.
  • Athena is the principle of wisdom, word and mastery; a Companion of Heroes and Warrior of Truth.

How do they stand? How do they move? How do they affect the world around them and each other?
Let's gather round and behold their images, read their stories and move through their mysteries.
Let's mirror back to the Goddess Her gift of Inspiration as we dance.


About the Photography


You will be personally styled and photographed as Artemis/Athena in a wonderful location by the fabulously talented Paola,. You will receive digital copies of your photoshoot. Having experienced this myself last year, I can say, she manages to find the Goddess within you and capture the perfect shot of you embodying the true woman you are.
