Light the World: A Nia Dance Party for Hanukkah

Hosted By: Ritualwell

Rav Abraham Isaac Kook once wrote that each of us has a unique candle burning deep within us, and that we each must find a way to let our candle shine brightly into the world. In this Ritualwell event, we’ll welcome Hanukkah through the Nia movement practice. We’ll kindle our unique candles to music by Jewish singers and composers such as Matisyahu, Erran Baron Cohen, Divahn, Noa, and Balkan Beat Box, followed by prompts for reflection and writing.

Nia is based on the philosophy that everyone can enhance their potential for a healthy, meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening compassionately to their bodies. It is adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Its core principle is finding your body’s joy of movement, whether that’s swaying gently in a chair or stomping up a sweat.

What you’ll need:
-Clear a space so you have room to move, even if you’ll remain seated.
-Nia is low-impact and designed to be done barefoot, but it’s fine to wear tennis or jazz-dance shoes if that’s best for you.
-Have writing or art materials at hand, choose according to your preferred form of creative expression.
