The ´mother Moondance circle´ was birthed 25 years ago, in 1992 in Mexico, with a group of dancers who followed their dreams, visions and studies of the Codice Borgia (the anthropological foundation from which he Moondance Circle Xochimeztli originates).
The Moondance Circle is a legacy of the Ancestral tradition that transmits the inheritance of the ancient grandmothers of all the directions of the Earth; like grandmother Isabel Vega, may she rest in peace, and our beloved grandmother Tonalmitl, both founders of the Moondance Circle Xochimeztli.
They carried out their work for many years, leaving behind a legacy which is now lifting us and passing on the task of fusing experience, message, studies, dreams and vision. This lineage and its philosophy has much experience which is to be lived and celebrated, and most of all used authentically; as a deep source of empowerment. This mother circle, the Moondance Xochimeztli, has given birth to many more circles in different parts of the world including Argentina, Costa Rica and soon Dominican Republic, Austria and many more.
