Iseum of Quimera:
Ordained Priestess Training and Community
What is the Iseum of Quimera?
An Iseum is a gathering or school with the purpose of learning about the priestesshood of Isis. There are many Iseums in the Temple of Isis.
The Iseum of Quimera teaches embodyment of the Medicine of Movement as our directive. We are the “Dancing Priestesses”.
A quimera (or chimera, pronounced Ke • mera or Ki • mera) is a beast that is made up of many different animal parts that are fused into a unique beast. In the same way, our form of embodying dance is made up of a fusion of many styles and methodologies that unite into something unique.
We perform rituals in dance. Healing rituals.
When we perform we draw on our body, a line down the center from forehead to the bottom of whatever skin shows (down the stomach, too, if it is bare). This line represents our belief that the world exists in balance and thus we walk life in non-duality. We value the dark and light, good and bad, silly and serious, etc. That line is the balancing of all-that-is into a perfect whole.
Through the Iseum of Quimera we offer trainings and dive into the mysteries of the healing aspects of dance.
