Lauren Grover is both a presenter and vendor at CTCW, returning to this year reprising the Guedra- North African Women’s Trance Ritual which she first offered here in 2010. Since Guedra dancing needs 8 people, please sign up for this at the registration when you come in (or during the conference); the workshop/ritual will take place on
She will also be offering her services as a talented Henna artist during most of the conference as well as doing a workshop Henna in Ritual Friday at two. Lauren Grover first studied henna, dance, and guedra in the Society for Creative Anachronism back in the early 90s. In 1993, she became New England’s first professional henna artist, and has taught, danced, and doodled all over the northeast since then. Lauren read far too many “Choose Your Own Adventure” books as a child to ever fully follow someone else’s spiritual path, but so long as there is kindness and joy, she feels that everyone has some truth.

But she will also have some of the labyrinths’ she makes. The labyrinth can be used as a tool that can re-integrate our scattered energy; mend our fragmented self and bring about deeper spiritual focus. It can lead us to divine inspiration, mirroring the journey of our lives with its twisting path leading to sacred center. Tracy takes a holistic approach to her labyrinth work by incorporating other modalities such as Reiki, crystal grids/healing, breath work, sound and sacred dance.
She’ll be selling out of her room, which will be one of those opening on the Atrium. Look for her there!
