Somewhere in the Eastern part of Europe in the geographically triangle made by the Carpathian Mountains – the lower Danube river – the Black Sea lies a series of traditions of the feminine spirit with climax on this day/night of 24th of June.
As every good story to tell – and deepseastories crew always dive deep searching pleasures of body-mind-spirit to surface to you this series of customs relates to the supernatural feminine beings called Iele or Zâne or Sînziene (in the language that lies on those lands for thousand of years, nowadays Romanian).
In a nutshell what they do in this day is celebrating with their earthly sisters dressed in ethnic clothes daytime and completely naked night time dancing, learning from each other mysteries and secrets from the Creation. At times, one pure male (here the angles are very wide) is kidnapped by them and pleased, and fought, and taught, and bought as slave, and loved as king, to be only then released back into the world with a better view of the male-female needed balance.
Maybe this year is one of you…for they are there.
