The Healer Dancer: Ceremonial
and Ritual Dance Training

Week One: Monday 2nd – Sunday 8th September 2019
Week Two: Monday 21st – Sunday 27th September 2020

 

Spiral One: The fundamentals of Earth Body Medicine

Conscious movement and embodiment
the Divine wild Dance

She dances in the thunder
She roars within the sea
She caresses with kindness
Everything that comes to be
She awakens the seeds to blossom
She soothes those departing this world
She dances and whirls
Stirring the wheel of life into oneness
Repairing the broken pieces of Soul

This week is the first spiral of a journey in Body Earth Medicine: embodying the conscious connection between Earth, Body and healing in one self, community and eco-system. 

In Europe we have a strong yet hidden dance tradition: women would dance in the wild woods for communion with Mother Earth and the Cosmic  Mother, fertility, initiation rites, sacred sexuality and conscious death.

This week we will explore free dance, mindful movement, altered states of consciousness through movement, trance states, ecstasy, transpersonal dance. 

The body is a Sacred room in the Temple of Earth and sky: awaken your deep memory, open the possibility of healing, celebrate, mourn, develop creativity and intuition.
