Today I’m grateful for learning to belly dance! In the essence of trying something new each month, I jumped at the chance to go to a full moon ceremony which incorporated belly dancing for novices.
Belly dancing has long been known to help women embody their sexuality and how to love, celebrate and be proud of their bodies. In the process of so many of us trying to be modern day superwomen juggling all these balls we have up in the air and playing many roles, its entirely easy for our femininity and sensuality to be put aside or forgotten.
So it was lovely to whole heartedly embrace it on this evening, with a beautifully adorned bell wrap skirt, golden bindi on my face, heady incense circling the room, the full moon melting into the studio bathing it in a golden light we danced, swayed and shook out hips to the mystical drum beat. I loved the feminine energy in the studio and whilst I may not give Shakira a run for her money in the hip moving stakes, I drank in every moment of this wonderful evening and the feeling of freedom, sensuality and femininity it gave me.
