Book Launch at Open Secret - Sat. Nov. 28

The book launch event at Open Secret in San Rafael CA on November 28, 2009 was a wonderful evening.

For photos and comments, please see the recent blog entry. For the record, below is the official invitation for the event:

Autobiography of a Dancing Priestess
and Suburban Mom!

“A saucy, sensitive, sensual journey along
the serpentine spirit path that led
Priestess Le’ema to the snakes, the Goddess,
and ultimately to her powerful self.”

– Donna Henes, author of The Queen of
My Self: Stepping into Sovereignty in Midlife

Inside each of us is an instinctual being filled with primordial wisdom. Le’ema Kathleen Graham – visionary sacred dancer, ordained priestess, and urban shaman – shows us how our instinct can be renewed through shedding our old skins.

Through sacred dances, shamanic journeys, goddess archetypes, dreams and visions, Le’ema helps us reconnect to the thriving intuitive intelligence that pulses within our very own essential nature.

“Her book is a deep blessing, a kind of
traveler’s key through uncharted waters…”

– Normandi Ellis, author of Awakening Osiris,
Dreams of Isis
and Feasts of Light

As a master teacher with over 30 years experience in the field of Somatics, Ms. Graham offers classes and performances internationally. Her instructional DVD Snake Yoga: Sacred Feminine Wisdom was featured in the March 2009 issue of Yoga Magazine.

Snake Yoga DVD

“…a gentle, yet potent practice for accessing your intuitive feminine energy.”

– Janice Gates, author of
Yogini: The Power of Women in Yoga

The perfect yoga for mid-life women. Includes a stellar animated meditation on the chakra system, original ambient fusion music and an illustrated booklet of poses.

Dancing the Inner Serpent

Le’ema Kathleen Graham

Saturday November 28 at 7:30 PM

Open Secret Bookstore, 923 C St., San Rafael


Dance Performance
Sacred Serpent Slide Show
Book Signing

A rich and entrancing evening melding dance, multimedia and the spoken word created by this multi-talented artist. Moving poetry, compelling visions and heart-felt stories of the personal and the transcendent.

The serpent has always been seen as a symbol of healing, regeneration, immortality and wisdom. The fascinatingly beautiful slide show contains images of the snake as sacred in cultures worldwide, from antiquities to modern art.

In addition to reading from her memoir, Le’ema will perform two of her signature dances:

~ Lamia ~ ancient Libyan Serpent Goddess who rose from the depths of the earth to enlighten the people

~ Minoan Snake Goddess ~ the Cretan statue from the Palace of Knossos comes to life as an aspect of the Divine Mother

“Superb! Le’ema not only dances the Goddess, she becomes the Goddess!”

– Lady Olivia Robertson, author of The Call of Isis
and founder of the Fellowship of Isis
