Dancing the Sacred, Moving the World – “Moving Mysteries”

For our Sacred Dance Guild’s 50th Anniversary in 2008, Emmalyn Moreno, a SDG Lifetime Member from San Luis Rey, California, wrote, choreographed and recorded our 50th Anniversary Festival Song, “MOVING MYSTERIES.” Going on three years later, our SDG Board of Directors is happy to announce that “Moving Mysteries” is now SDG’s official song/dance or Body Prayer.

Come dance in the rising of the sun.
People of the North, People of the South
Moving Mysteries we are one…
