Wisdom Dances provides a space where people cultivate hope and resilience in the midst of change. Thanks to donors like you we are able to bring the healing power of our dances out into the community for three free events each year.

  • The January we gather people by the frozen banks of the Mississippi River to sing to the water.
  • In April the Wisdom Dancers put on their ceremonial dress and rove around the Twin Cities bringing blessing dances to the water, to the bees, to people who are sick, and to places in need of an infusion of vitality.
  • In mid-summer we again gather by the river and dance for the healing of water and all of life.

Helping people find their place in the circle of community and in the circle of the seasons prepares us for knowing how to respond with meaning and purpose to the challenges of our times. Wisdom Dances is helping people find what reciprocity and deep belonging feels like in their bones; that inner knowing can guide us towards creating a future in which all life flourishes.

With your help we are very excited to bring to Minnesota for the first time Wisdom Dances’ guiding teacher, Laura Shannon and her husband, master musician Kostantis Kourmadias. This will greatly enrich and deepen the dance community in Minnesota.

We depend on community support to be able to serve the community in this way. Thank you for your generosity.
