Maureen Atkins, aka "Mo" joined the Bay Area Circle Dancers in 1993 and has been teaching Sacred Circle Dance since 1995. She has been a regular BACD teacher since 2000. She leads a group in San Leandro which will be celebrating 11 years this November. In the past she has organized and led weekend dance retreats, participated in special occasions like church services, weddings, grief groups and has co-facilitated at the Far Horizons Dance Camp/Retreats. Her newest group in Felton at the Center for Healing started this past Spring. "I teach a variety of things everything from meditative to lively. I believe that it is important to make new comers feel welcomed. One thing that drew me to Sacred Circle Dance was the idea that we celebrate all things that make us human. I am looking forward to being at camp for the entire week this year and will be bringing my harp!" Maureen lives in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Ben Lomond. She works as an addictions counselor in Santa Cruz.
