Bhakti: Devotional Dances of the Goddess
BHAKTI: Devotional Dances of the Goddess starring Colleena Shakti
bhakti (Sanskrit): a devotee's profound love for and active participation in worship of a personal deity; ecstatic union with the divine. From the verb root bhaj, meaning to share in, to belong to, and to worship.
Celebrate with us as we trace the lineage of goddess worship through devotional dance, from classical Indian dance forms of the devadasis to neo-pagan adaptation of myths in tribal belly dance. We invoke the Divine Feminine with movement representing both communion with and offering to the goddess in her myriad aspects.
