Banyen's Description: 

Travel back to an era when the moon was our only calendar, and explore all the timekeeping systems that have been held sacred ever since by peoples all over the world. From the Egyptian feast of Thoth to the Celtic fire festivals, from the Chinese lunisolar year to the lunar-based calendar of the Muslim world, Dance of the Moon will take you on a cross-cultural tour of traditions, pagan rituals, and practices throughout history that honour life’s cycles.

Discover the Mayan calendar as a soul evolution tool and see what it foretells about 2012. Explore the spiritual underpinnings of the Pagan Wheel of the Year alongside holy days from communities spanning several generations and thousands of miles. Learn about a wide array of deities, symbols, plants, and elements that are sacred to each month of the year.

Just as the rhythms of the moon and the earth resonated long ago for our ancestors, these life-affirming cycles persist today in the rituals and festivals of the Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Taoists, Christians, and the indigenous peoples of Africa and the Americas. Reconnect with nature and dance along with life’s sacred rhythms.
