TransDance - a Potent, Playful and Prayer-full Dance Experience
Led by Heather Munro Pierce, a TransDance journey integrates elements of tribal motion, freeform expression, moving meditation and activated imagination. Heather returns to AET at Asilomar by popular demand - her gently guided tribal journey was a big success at the 2005 conference.
Come honor the Mystery and celebrate life! No dance experience required – all movement is at your own pace and interpretation.
