At the Spiral Dance, we build elaborate and beautiful altars. Altars provide a way of showing honor and respect for the elements , spirits and deities, to remember and acknowledge our beloved dead, to pray for healing and transformation. Our altar building tradition is heavily influenced by the Latino Dia de los Muertos traditions of building home altars for our friends and relations who have passed. Here in this section we offer space for altar builders to share pictures and descriptions of altars from previous years and intentions for this year.
In the Presence of our Beloved Dead, we dance, create community and wield Love to effect change.
