Sacred Movements is a guided, transformative dance practice designed to accelerate development and growth.
The practice follows a sequence through Activation, Evolvement and Integration.
Activate the Strength
We each hold unique expressions of power. We will move simultaneously and rhythmically as a group to amplify this power.
Evolve the Shadow
The shadow aspect of our lives often create blockages. We will use the body, the space and the music to move our shadows into focus.
Integrate Into Daily Life
After transformative experiences, it is essential that community and integration be sustained.
The practice utilizes the techniques of:
Tribal Dance - an ancient practice involving rhythmic drumming to connect a group of people through the “heartbeat” of the drum.
Viewpoints - a movement exploration of Space, Shape, Time, Emotion and Story.
Ecstatic - a practice in shamanism to alter consciousness.
Sacred Movements draws on the influences of eastern philosophy, integral theory and wisdom from numerological typologies: numerology and enneagram.
This practice is held as a ceremonial experience.
All levels welcome.
