Dervish Constellation

The Dervish Constellation — the official school of Dancemeditation™– is a network of independent, inter-connected teachers under the direction of Founder and Principal Teacher, Dunya Dianne McPherson. Dancemeditation™ Teachers have completed an intensive Certification training with Founder. The training is completed primarily at Movement Monastery which includes time in a secluded setting to focus on practices, cleansing diet, spiritual discussion, and silence. Teacher training also involves a yearly intensive advanced workshop in NYC and monthly check-ins with Dunya Dianne McPherson designed to support a regular Dancemeditation™ practice. In order to receive the initial Certificate level, teachers will have completed 80 days of dedicated training. Advanced Levels of Teaching Certification with more stringent criteria follow.

Teachers listed here offer work in various formats and locations. Many events are public offerings. In addition, Dancemeditation™ teachers work through institutional settings — universities, hospitals, school systems. If you wish any of us to present or teach for you, please contact us through this site or directly.
