Spirit Dance in the Stone Circle

This year several of our SWL members were involved with the Spirit Dance in the Stone Circle at Paradise Unbound in Redmond, Washington on Saturday, August 9, 2014. We represented our club as piercers, piercing assistants, dancers, drummers, and supporters, all guided and under the watchful eye of the facilitator, PhoenixB. The Spirit Dance is a ceremony paying homage to ancient traditions as well as present day spiritual practices where healing energy is exchanged, released, appreciated, and rediscovered by the conduit of piercings made in the dancers' bodies by flesh hooks, which are often secured to external points to enhance and empower the experience. The club members involved elected to support the Spirit Dance both for their own personal reasons as well as feeling that the experience was an opportunity to support one another and embrace unconventional spiritual practices.
