Morena Cardoso

She is the visionary founder of Danza Medicina, a project that allows women to remove their masks, face their fears, embrace their shadows and strip the layers towards their sacred and savage essence.

Morena lives as a guardian of a sacred and wild land in southern Brazil. Still a pilgrim, she facilitates dance medicine workshops around the world, bringing in its baggage ancient chants, sacred artifacts, dances, drums, maracas, medicines from the forest. She carries with her tales, mysteries, memories and wisdom, sowing where she passes, the reverence to the Goddess, to the feminine, to the brotherhood, to the family, to the nature and the wild essence that inhabits in each and every woman.
