Dance Workshops

“Let the dance flow in its own way; don’t force it. Rather, follow it; allow it to happen. It is not a doing but a happening. Remain in the mood of festivity. You are not doing something very serious; you are just playing, playing with your life energy, playing with your bio-energy, allowing it to move in its own way. Just like the wind blows and the river flows, you are flowing and blowing. Feel it.”   Osho
Dance is an essential part of this festival. The dance invites us to surrender. When we surrender fully we are at once able to release that which is not serving and make space for something new. Through movement we integrate the lessons and gifts received while opening up to that subtle yet clear body wisdom. As we cultivate this listening we may connect our body and spirit so as to move with spontaneous clarity through this body lifetime, an essential practice to tantric living!
We will have numerous dance offerings, as teachers from around the world come to share their particular flavours.
  • 5Rhythms – is a movement meditation practice devised by Gabrielle Roth in the late 1970s, which invites you to be fully in your body and fluent in the expression of its subtle and dynamic language. The 5Rhythms ignite our experience of creativity, connection, and community.

 

  • Movement Medicine – is a body based movement meditation practice that will reconnect you to the wisdom of living from the heart, the joy of knowing who you are and the satisfaction of making your unique contribution to life.

 

  • Biodanza – an incredible system of human development and integration, which celebrates the identity and soul of beings encouraging it to shine forth through all the cultural conditioning into being and into expression.

 

  • Ecstatic Dance – brings all who enter along on a journey of movement, where the veils of illusion have a chance to fall away and the opportunity to understand wholeness, aliveness and connection come into focus.
“The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy.”   Gabrielle Roth.
