A Woman who Serves the Great Mother through the Power of Water

The word mermaid is formed of two words :
Mere - old English for sea / Mother
Maiden - a Maid who serves

In ancient times the mermaid was at the heart of sea folklore. She was known by many names; Shahmaran, Nymph, Melusine, Siren and Selkie.

These mythical ‘half woman – half fish’ beings were feared and revered. Their legends were associated with unworldly powers - seers connected to above and below.

Mermaids were thought to control the watery domain and sailors dedicated their hopes and dreams to them as a way of ensuring safe passage for themselves on sea voyages. They were also thought to grant wishes and act as luminary guides on a path known as the un-domesticated feminine.

Now, the mermaid consciousness is arising again.

We consist of 70 percent water and just like the water across the planet we can flow, freeze, stagnate, steam and crystalize. This fluidic energy has a tremendous power to calm, balance, release and purify through the sacred geometry that water holds.

The Mermaid Rising ~ Awakened Bellydance explores your relationship to water and in particular the sacral chakra. This area of creative power is where we hold of a treasure chest of emotions and can access unlimited abundance within our womb space. This sacred rite of passage is tailored to honour you and can incorporate :

* Awakened Bellydance movement processes
* Energy therapy
* Kundalini activation
* Clearing contracts with water deities
* Healing ancestral (Epigenetic) fears and past lifetimes connected to water
* Blue Lotus water lily ceremony
