The Healer Dancer: Ceremonial and Ritual Dance Training
Monday 2nd – Sunday 8th September 2019
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.
Times of Circles
Each course day – 10.00am – 5.30pm with breaks, and flexible evenings.
Location, and what to bring
Always bring clothing and footwear suitable for the weather – cold, rain, sunshine, showers.

By the end of this week you will have tools to start developing a daily practice, create simple ritual dances with the 5 elements and have body-mind awareness. Dance and movement are ongoing practices for life, so after this training we will suggest other thematic spirals for deepening your practice.
