REV. DON LEWIS

Rev Don

Rev. Don Lewis Internationally known psychic reader, teacher, and author of the Witch School series.

“Soul Retrieval”

This workshop deals with Correllian Soul Retrieval, which is a somewhat different technique than the more familiar Shamanic Soul Retrieval, although both techniques have the same goal. Soul Retrieval is a powerful technique of healing and spiritual integration. As we go through life, parts of our energy become trapped and cut off from us through traumatic experiences. For some people a great deal of their spiritual energy may have become blocked and unavailable to them. Soul Retrieval releases these blockages and allows us to reintegrate the energy back into our present lives. Soul retrieval can be used to address issues from the present life or from past lives, and is an important technique for Karmic Disentanglement.  From his book “Witch School Lessons for Second Degree”

“Ritual for the Open Public”

This workshop deals with the special considerations involved in doing open public ritual. In private ritual we only have to consider what means to us and how to best adapt it to our own needs. But in public ritual there are many more considerations ranging from disparate personalities, skill levels, and expectations, to how best to deal with curious bystanders or law enforcement personnel. Based on many years of leading very public rituals, Rev. Don Lewis shares his answers to these and other challenges of holding open public ritual.  From his book “Ritual in Theory and Practice”  www.witchschool.com and www.revdonlewis.com

BELLY DANCE

This workshop will focus on the movement vocabulary of popular dances from the Middle East and North Africa better known as “belly dance.” Fundamental movements, combinations and choreographic segments will cater to all levels from the absolute beginner to the seasoned dancer wanting to brush up on the basics and even learn some new variations!

Belly Dance Class Bio: An avid disciple of world dance Olga El is inspired by the myriad of cultural traditions to which she has been exposed and a love of storytelling. From a young age she was particularly enamored by dances from the Middle East and the northern hemisphere of Africa–better known as belly dance–and chose these dance forms as the foundation of her personal fusion style which includes martial arts, circus arts, and dances from the West African Diaspora including Latin-American styles and Hip Hop.

From 2008-2011 she directed the belly dance troupe Bastet and its charitable sub-division Belly Dance for Change. She is the founder and artistic director of The Kandake–a new dance-theatre collective that combines social activism and philanthropy with folkloric, modern, theatrical and experimental movement. Olga has coordinated several charity events enlisting talent such as Akim Funk Buddha, Beatbox Guitar, and America’s Best Dance Crew judge, Lil’ Mama. She has worked in a managerial and administrative role with well-loved modern/ballet based companies such as The Creative Outlet Dance Theatre of Brooklyn and Valerie Green/Dance Entropy.

Her past work has been featured by many prominent belly dance presenters such as Alwan for the Arts, Jerry Bezdikian, the Lafayette Grill, the Rakkasah Festival, and D’jam at Je’Bon. She has also performed at Le Poisson Rouge, The Best Buy Theatre, Tammany Hall, The Mehanata, The Zipper Factory, The CMJ Music Festival, The House of Yes, Dances of Vice, The Bitter End, Dixon Place, TED MED (part of TED Talks) and The Lincoln Center.

Olga studied belly dance with her main teacher and mentor, Allisyn Swift— a second generation African belly dancer who was also versed in in Classical Indian dance, Ballet and Jazz. Olga has also studied with master teachers such as folkloric dance scholar, Morocco; Somalian Fulbright scholar, Arianna Al Tiye; Jillina and Amar Gamal of the Belly Dance Super Stars, and Rayhana of Serena Studios. Other teachers include Mariyah, Darshan and Sera Solstice of Bold Belly Dance.

Olga began teaching in 2007 at Pratt Institute where she was the class coordinator of the belly dance club on campus. She is available for both private and group classes, special event workshops and volunteer sessions for under-served communities. www.thekandake.com
