ALESSANDRA BELLONI Proudly announces the LAUNCH & CONCERT with music from the CD "HEALING JOURNEYS WITH THE BLACK MADONNA” Published by Inner Traditions - Bear & Company featuring healing chants, ritual drumming and trance dance ceremonies that are found on the CD accompanying the book. ABOUT THE BOOK, "HEALING JOURNEYS WITH THE BLACK MADONNA" Alessandra Belloni's book, "Healing Journeys With The Black Madonna," is the product of more than 35 years of research and fieldwork at sacred sites around the world. Belloni takes the reader on a mystical pilgrimage of empowerment, initiation, and transformation, explaining how her love for Italian folk music led her to learn the ancient Tammorriata musical tradition of the Earth Goddess Cybele and the Moon Goddess Diana, leading to her discovery of the still-living cult of the Black Madonna in the remote villages of Southern Italy. Sharing chants, rhythms, and sacred songs, accompanied by 12 audio tracks, Belloni details how she uses these therapeutic musical and trance practices to heal women and men from abuse, trauma, depression, and addiction and shows how these practices can be used for self-healing and transformation, including her personal story of using the Tarantella to overcome cervical cancer.
