Every moment is an opportunity for awakening
I would like to introduce myself and give a little information about my spiritual journey.
I have since a very young age, been connected to the universe. I recall in my earliest days as a child my family visited a show and there was a booth set up to take a picture of our Aura. I laughed to myself in slight confusion when they showed us the image. I could already see this without a camera. Aura and energy is what I now consider to be vibrations and were always apart of my vision. I never thought anything of it as it was my normal.
Intuition I later learned had always been a part of me. I never really believed in readings or anything like it. I felt it rather taboo and even fraudulent. That all changed with my first deck of cards. The cards literally sang to me in an overwhelming fashion. The vibrations and colours emanating from them was extraordinary. At first I couldn't understand it but after listening and learning the tones I was able to communicate and connect to the energies around me.
The Bent Willow in Oshawa became my second home and with their blessings, I started sharing what I consider a gift. I later found that what I had to offer, with no ego involved, had been passed down through my family. This makes me known as what is called a legacy reader. It was almost as if the universe, vibrations and messages finally made sense. I learned through my family the art of Candle Wax Readings, Aura, Vibration and Oracle Card Readings.
Every Wednesday evening I offer meditations at The Bent Willow. Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health. These benefits do not end when your meditation session ends with me. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may help you manage different needs or situations in your everyday life.
I hope to give others what they need and when they need it.
Much love Sean
Hello I am Shari owner Echoes of the Mother International Fusion Bellydance. I am also the instructor of The Wolfshager Hexenbrut Witch Dance and creator/artist of the Meditation in Movement.
Why Echoes of the Mother? This is how I can bring some light to this world we call home. Through insight, meditation, movement and dance, healing our energies. Welcome to my world where I imagine a place of higher vibration, improving the perspective of the world we live in, one person at a time. Where Spirit, Mind, and Body mix for a more positive outlook and a better way of life.
Even before bellydance, and as a Meditative Movement Artist, I use music in slow meditative movements to find my inner peace. That still resounds with me today. I’ve been dancing all my life, and in 2006 discovered Bellydance where I found a real connection to the Divine Mother Goddess, and Gaia - our Mother Earth. Although I was not “born into Bellydance”, I am definitely not a “hobbyist”. Starting with local classes, I found I needed more. Travelling into the city, about an hour-and-a-half for about half that time, you’d think I took it seriously. I continue to learn and evolve. As a Teacher, I must also remain a Student, so that I can share new material with my students. I’ve grown since the beginning, training and experimenting within rhythms and different musical styles, body movements and isolations, along with layering and EXPRESSION!! That came with a little blood, sweat, and tears – sore, happy muscles at the end of the day, but still a huge grin on my face. I’ve loved performing at various venues, learning from some of the best Toronto had to offer, as well as attending workshops from other stars visiting worldwide. What I’ve learned most from my mentors isn’t only technique, but, EXPRESSION!
Evoking emotion through body movement, a gaze, a hand movement – all very important factors in this form, which can be very different from the highly choreographed “5,6,7,8” of western dance forms. Even though I started with Modern Jazz, which is a Western dance form – highly choreographed, it still taught me the importance of musicality and movement, above technique. My bellydance has evolved from a Tribal Fusion, to a more modern/lyrical form now recently globally recognized as International Fusion. I am always learning and improving to make it relevant and exciting in today’s changing world energies. Come to our Fusion Belly Dance (International Fusion Dance) Classes! Find out what it feels like to set yourself free. Gain confidence and positive body awareness, exercise, and have fun while awakening your Inner Goddess along with your Chakras! Radiate your Spirit outwards, feel good! A truly expressive dance form, using body isolations, shimmies, expression in movement and emotion, this belly dance fusion is a combination of inspirations from the Middle East, Asian, Flamenco, Modern Urban, and lyrical dance forms. Music will be inspired from all across our Mother Earth. Come learn The Witch Dance! I was the first to teach the Witch Dance in the Durham Region and due to popular demand, I have come full circle, to teach it again – this time here, at The Bent Willow!
Come learn the infamous The Wolfshager Hexenbrut Witch Dance with me, step by step, as seen on YouTube around the world. First performed in 2016 by Wolfshager Hexenbrut (Wolf Hunter’s Coven), in Wolfshager, Harz, Germany. Always danced to Peter Fox’s “Schuttel dienen Speck”, this dance has become a viral sensation and the “Little Darling” of Witches and Pagans everywhere! We are hoping for performance opportunities for our Willow Witch Dancers once we have completed classes and made our own Besom (Broom), which will also be part of this class. Before I began teaching it, I took careful notes of the choreography to get it perfect, to honour of the original choreographer. I then transferred it to my students in my previous The Wolfshager Hexenbrut Witch Dance classes for a genuine, fun-filled Dance class. In my own words: “Yes – I still have my original notes – and yes, I am excited to teach this amazing, empowering dance again. I can’t wait to share this wonderful Energy with you all”.
On Performing: Locally, I perform at Oshawa’s local LGBTQ Club 717 (as Echo Noir), as well as at the Durham Pagan Pride Day, and some local private functions.
I am excited to share with you what I have learned, continue to learn from my dance and life experience. Through insight, meditation, movement and dance, healing our energies. Where I imagine a place of higher vibration, improving the perspective of the world we live in, one person at a time. Where Spirit, Mind, and Body mix for a more positive outlook and a better way of life. “Love removes Fear. Fear is the absence of Love. Fear cannot exist in the Presence of Love.” -Shari Irwin, Echoes of the Mother
Coming Soon: Elemental Energies in Meditative Movement This will be a class combining The Elements to music and movement that match. In doing so, we will be using this combination to delve deep into emotional and internal issues, bringing them to the surface and letting them go. Dance is Spirit. Energy is Love. Movement is Process. Meditation is Clarity.
