Be the Temple - Sensual Awakening Bellydance Ecstatic Healing Event

For women with NO to PRO bellydance or other dance experience

Radiance and Bliss live as your deepest Self, always available in this eternal moment. Yet this sweet honeyed Mystery behind the Veils of illusion - those hard earned and even harder released habits of separation and fear - cannot be forced or bullied open. 

In our busy NYC lives, there are few opportunities for the sensitivity, availability, safety and permission for the Veils to part and reveal your Radiant Jeweled Self within the Temple of Sensual Secrets. We are much more than we are normally allowed to be, much more than what we think we are and even much more than we can imagine. Creating supportive environments where we may emerge as the vibrant enlivened Mystery is my great joy!

Our hearts long for the world we deeply know is possible and often have glimmers in mystical experiences. With Be The Temple, we are supported in a sustained dive into some of the highest possibilities available.

Be the Temple is emotional depth, juicy enlivening and spiritual nurturing for all New York City Warrioresses and serves both as an introduction to the transformational ecstatic healing power of Sensual Awakening Bellydance and a delicious recharge to shine ever more brightly in the world.

This work is sacred and so please think about how you can arrive that will honor your own sense of divinity. So come comfortable, fresh, free and in a spirit of welcoming the highest potentials for yourself, each other and the greater worlds.

Welcome to the Mystery. Be the Temple.

With love,


Bellydance: Ancient Roots and Modern Miracles

Bellydance is one of the oldest sacred dance practices in the world. Today it is most often seen as entertainment, exercise, an expression of ethnic traditions and a creative modality for emerging new art. Bellydance is also a potent spiritual practice infused with sensuality, beauty, depth and transformation.

At its core bellydance is a celebration of the creative principle. In ancient times, the feminine form was recognized to be the embodiment of the giver of life and bellydance was a way of honoring and evoking the creative force of the universe.

This is not a typical dance class. In this introductory experiential evening you will enter into a space that is a re-visioning of the mystical healing temples of old, where abiding in the blessed enchanted world and relating as our highest selves soothes our hearts and lifts our spirits.

We will start with drinking vegan chai, enjoying some vegan delectable healthy treats, some stretching and a relaxed inquiry into the deep well of wisdom that lives and breathes as the body Temple. With sensitive guidance and inspired narrative, bellydance teacher and embodied awakening guide Tara Harper will invite you through mystical doorways that we will hold open with our intention for the imaginal realms to appear. The intention is to be available for the Mystery beyond the veils of illusion to dance us.

We will explore the simple Sacred Shapes of bellydance to raise our vibrational intelligence to release tensions and rejuvenate. The Sacred Shapes of Bellydance awaken different aspects of the universal energies and are similar to energy cultivation practices such as chi gung, tai chi or yoga.

You will feel those energies rise up from inside the depths of your own being and together we will discover how these potent shapes hold those energies between us. We will embody the ecstatic union and dance as the Source before the primordial unity with nature was split. You will feel the power of the Mystery evoked through the dance and you will find yourself swimming in the currents of life that animate the world.


  • Be the Temple is participatory and interactive. We will be sharing conscious dialogue, healing touch (i.e. shoulder massage) and simple movement and dance.
  • Wear comfortable clothes to move in that also feels fun and a bit dressy! You do not need to show your belly. I suggest yoga leggings with a long skirt on top.
  • For this special event, all women are welcome. No experience necessary, only the desire to reconnect with your deepest self, a curiosity to explore the Mystery, and the openess to share with others in an intentional circle of spiritual intimacy, trust, and support.


Please bring a small offering such as a candle, flowers, a crystal, a poem written on a piece of paper or anything that symbolizes gratitude for our time together and to beautify our space.


There will be incense and aromatherapy oils used. 


Please refrain from alcohol, too much caffeine (you know your limits!) and other intoxicants.


Please understand that due to the advance preparations needed to create this event, we do not offer refunds. We suggest that you consider giving your ticket to a dear friend if you cannot attend as a kind act of "paying it forward" expressing generosity. Please write me at to let me know of any changes.

It will be a delight to dance with You!

In 1996, I saw my first bellydancer and my life was forever changed.

Like in a movie, time stopped. The room disappeared and there was nothing but the dancer and the dance. Something deep was transmitted that at the time I had no idea what it was about, but it was so evocative that I was compelled to study bellydance like a moth to a flame. For a year I practiced and studied 4 hours a day. Then my teacher started to get me shows and one thing let to another.... I’ve since performed over 1200 shows and lived in exotic Hawaii, Malaysia, Thailand, Bangladesh and India.

What was transmitted in that first experience with bellydance was an initiation into the mysteries of embodied awakening. Some may call it the Divine Feminine or the Goddess or Kundalini Shakti. All these names refer to an energetic wisdom of the body, an inner spiritual wisdom, healer and guide. It is the vibratory awakened intelligence that is the animating force of life and evolution itself. 

My life since then feels like a magic carpet ride. From growing up on a dairy farm in rural Canada, to performing internationally as a bellydancer and now putting all the energy, experience and dedication of a successful artistic career into sharing the transformational essence of this powerful dance, I am honored, blessed and inspired to create opportunities for Sensual Embodied Awakening Bellydance.
