Caravan Project SE New England -Tribal Belly Dance, a dance of fun, creativity and community.
The Caravan Project is an International Tribal Belly Dance network that utilizes the Gypsy Caravan format to create a fun, friendly dance experience.
Tribal Belly dance is derived from the ancient dances of the Middle East, India and Spain. It is a dance of community and connection that uses a shared dance language to create group improvisations. It flows, it breathes, and it’s in the moment, its feminine strength, beauty and an appreciation of the body in physical as well as spiritual wellness. The Caravan Project is a perfect vehicle to bring together music, rhythm, dance and art.
Previous dance experience is not necessary, just a willingness to explore, have fun, and move.

The Labyrinth: The Serpent Path
with Tracy Andryc
Within our bodies lie 7 major energy centers, the chakras. In many traditions, our body’s vital energy is seen as moving among these centers. Kundalini, which rests in the root chakra, is often represented by a cobra, unwinding and rising up, connecting, cleansing, and opening our pathways as it comes into its full power. The labyrinth can be utilized to connect more consciously and open our chakra pathways. Learn how to walk the labyrinth to energize and balance the chakras.
Bio: Tracy Andryc has been sharing her love of the labyrinth since her first walk on its path in 1998. She sees the labyrinth as a universal tool that can be used in a magical/spiritual context, regardless of your religious path. She takes a holistic approach to her labyrinth work by incorporating other modalities such as Reiki, crystal grids/healing, breath work, sound and sacred dance. For over a decade she has facilitated workshops and rituals on the labyrinth and other topics at venues throughout New England. Tracy is a Certified Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator, Certified Birth Doula, Reiki Master, Crystal Healing Practitioner, and the founder of One Path Labyrinth Ventures. She is available for facilitated walks, workshops and rituals, Reiki and Crystal Healing sessions and classes, and labyrinth building consultation. www.onepathlabyrinth.org

What Makes You Rock
with Terry Milton
There will be a short meditation to help learn to attune to the energy of stones and crystals. This workshop will encourage each participant to select a stone or two for a mini Stone Reading … It is hoped that this will give each participant a little insight into some of the many ways in which YOU ROCK!
Bio: Terry Milton, aka “The Stone Lady” has been active in the psychic field for over 40 years. She has studied many traditional and unconventional ‘tools of the trade,’ including Palmistry, Astrology, Numerology, and Tarot, and is the creator of “Stone Readings” — a method of attuning to people through the stones and crystals with which they are closely aligned. There are uncanny similarities between “Mother Nature” and “Human Nature,” and people tend to be drawn to stones that have a personality, history, or energy similar to their own. Because “The Stone Lady” understands the stones, she is able to attune to you with authentic clarity. http://www.thestonelady.net

Connecting Circles Workshop
with Chris Fielding
Science, religion, and spirituality are all attempts at discovery he truth hidden behind the curtain of the Divine. How can we expand our own spiritual discoveries by looking at the beliefs and practices of other spiritualities around us? This program begins to answer that question by looking at the many commonalities among the different belief systems, and attempts to connect Wicca and Paganism to the worlds of science and religion.
Chris Fielding is a writer, teacher, and witch. He was the co-host of Everyday Paranormal (a pagan-perspective radio show), the co-editor of the ARA Quarterly for the Temple of Ara in New York City, and the writer of Connecting Circles (a column about the spiritual connections between belief systems). He is an Elder Priest and the co-founder of The Amber Raven Circle, an eclectic coven in the Sakonnet Bay area. He lives in Rhode Island with his wife and son, three cats, a dog, and a slightly confused fish.
