Cre­ate a con­nec­tion at she Dance event

Midwest Times - - THE EDGE - Tamra Carr

Women are in­vited on a jour­ney to self-dis­cov­ery, fe­male em­pow­er­ment and cre­at­ing whole­some con­nec­tions this week­end at Ger­ald­ton’s she Dance event.

The women-only ex­pe­ri­ence will fea­ture an abun­dance of mind­ful­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing meditation and dance, or­gan­ised by Ger­ald­ton res­i­dents Katie O’Mal­ley and Wendy Wat­ters.

Ms O’Mal­ley, who has been in the holis­tic health in­dus­try for more than 20 years, said Sun­day’s pro­gram took three months to write.

“We wanted to give women a real em­bod­ied jour­ney of them­selves, where they can ex­pe­ri­ence power, sen­su­al­ity, di­vin­ity, soft­ness and in­ner-guid­ance,” she said.

“When they dance, they will just move in their own nat­u­ral way to dif­fer­ent sounds, and it will take them on a jour­ney to the dif­fer­ent as­pects of who they are.

“It helps re­lieve stress, calm them, re­lax them — it can be clar­i­fy­ing for women and help them make de­ci­sions.”

The dance will be ac­com­pa­nied by a sa­cred women’s cir­cle, set to can­dle­light and sooth­ing mu­sic.

Ms O’Mal­ley said con­nec­tions formed dur­ing such ac­tiv­i­ties were very pow­er­ful.

“I have a deep love for peo­ple and sup­port­ing oth­ers to reach their full po­ten­tial,” she said.

“There’s noth­ing more beau­ti­ful than see­ing other women light up their life and be­come their whole and com­plete selves.”

Sun­day’s she Dance will mark the third time the event has been held in Ger­ald­ton, since it be­gan in Fe­bru­ary.

She Dance will go on its first Aus­tralian tour, hit­ting New South Wales and Mel­bourne later this month.

Ms O’Mal­ley says she has plans to take she Dance over­seas.

“I’m ac­tu­ally re­lo­cat­ing to Bali, which is a bit of an in­ter­na­tional hub, so we’ll see where we’re called to from there,” she said.

The she Dance event will be held this Sun­day at 881 Dance In­dus­tries in Ger­ald­ton.
