We are pleased to welcome back Woods Hole native and resident Dunya Dianne McPherson, for a Dancemeditation session on Thursday morning, March 30th at 10:30 AM. “Dancemeditation™ is a unique moving meditation system for self-discovery, healing, & evolution. It helps us be present in our body in the Moment. We use a wide variety of breathing and movement techniques to quiet an over-active, distracted mind identity and invite intuitive, inspired embodiment.” Click here to register!

Dunya has published two books, Skin of Glass: Finding Spirit in the Flesh and Sojourn the Inner Heaven: Movement Meditations for Awakening.  She received her early dance training with Falmouth dance legend Klara Koenig, and moved to New York City in 1972 to attend the Juilliard School. After graduation, she became a critically acclaimed dancer and choreographer, lauded by the New York Times, the Village Voice and Dance Magazine. The National Endowment for the Arts named her a Choreography Fellow, and she received numerous grants and commissions while holding academic positions at Barnard, Swarthmore, Hunter, Oberlin, and Princeton.

A decade later, healing from a serious injury, she turned away from her time as a dance educator and retreated to a monastic mountaintop community directed by an Iraqi Sufi Master, where she trained in movement meditation and Whirling. This two decades-long journey opened a new inner world, and an understanding of dance as moving prayer. Her path became Dancemeditation. Dunya has presented Dancemeditation workshops at major healing arts centers, including Kripalu as well as universities and institutes across the US and abroad.
