'Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free'

Shamanic Dance 

When we dance and ‘lose ourselves’ in the dance, accessing that deep state of flow and presence - a state of pure body mindfulness – we are travelling through all the multi-dimensional layers of our body – our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual being.

 

As in sitting meditation, in this movement meditation we can shed our layers of outdated ideas, thoughts and feelings.

 

At the same time we can tap into and invigorate our inner vital source, our prana or chi. The analytical and creative sides of the mind are balanced and we can enter a place of pure potential, for creativity, healing and joy.

'‎Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds.'
