Alessandra will reveal healing traditions of the still-living cult of the Black Madonna of Southern Italy, that are just as powerful and revered today as they were a millennia ago. In this workshop, we will learn how to honor the Black Madonna using the musical and dance tradition called the Tammorriata, a sensual dance which can be used to heal sexual blockages. We will be taught devotional drumming, playing of castanets/ tambourine, tribal dance moves, and shamanic chants and prayers. These ecstatic trance dances are a powerful, transformational  tool for self-healing. 
Note: Wear white clothing.  Dancing will be barefoot or in comfortable dance shoes; bring a frame drum (some Remo drums will be on-hand) and a tambourine. The workshop will be followed by a book-signing of Alessandra’s new book/CD: Healing Journeys with the Black Madonna.
