Workshop Series and Movement Course
THE WIND LONGS TO PLAY WITH HER HAIR
By : Schirin Chams Diba
Since time immemorial, the spiritual power of hair has been well known, and as such, hair has been either revered or repressed in varying cultures around the world. This innate power of the hair is so feared within many oppressive patriarchal societies, that the women in these societies are forced to cover their heads or else face violent, unethical retribution. Imagine how in countries like Iran, the wind in your hair and how the sunshine caresses you from your crown downwards is an illegal act. It’s one of the most profound, simple, and human birth rights of life. The Feminine is reclaiming HER right to exist and to bring soothing to all life on Earth. A girl-led revolution supported by the Masculine is in full swing right NOW. This is a two-session lecture and movement course. Come and dance with me as a form of activism in two evenings full of sacred dance and ritual traditions based on the power of a woman’s hair. We will explore traditions from North Africa, along the Silk Road to India, in which hair has been a vitally inclusive aspect for personal and environmental clearings, blessings, divination, and embodied prayer.
