“Shamanic healing is a journey. It involves stepping out of our habitual roles, our conventional scripts, and improvising a dancing path.” - Gabrielle Roth
This workshop is about the transformative power of dance. We take our own hands and guide ourselves through the process of transformation with caring attention. We practice how to become a shaman healer of our own. If we learn this and if we practice it, then we’ll have an impact on those around us as well. We initiate a tiny ripple of change that could become a wave. We’ll practice our smooth transition between the rhythms, and through this we’ll be able to make complex issues more simple, more physical, more easy to relate to. We make continuous healing transformation a natural part of our life.
In several ancient societies, it was the role of the shaman to connect with spirits and heal others or the community. They led rituals of transformation. The shaman used drumming, dance and singing for this purpose. According to these people everything had their own spirits – all the trees, plants, rivers, all the different diseases, all the elements. Originally all members of a tribe did shamanistic rituals sometimes, when they felt the need, but later there was only one person in every tribe who claimed to be the right person to do these rituals. And finally as shamans faded to oblivion nobody did such rituals.
I believe that we need to reclaim our capabilities to heal ourselves, others and the world through ecstatic rituals. All the elements in 5Rhythms movement meditation help us to go through transformative processes. This path brings us closer to the immediate present, to the reality of the here and now, and at the same time it offers us a map to arrive to a more intimate relation to the spirit world as well. We all have the capacity to dance, we all have the capacity to connect and we all have the capacity to heal.
On this journey we will use the 5Rhythms movement map to provide the basis for the ritual journey of the dancing shaman. We will not use any substances and the workshop is completely unrelated to any cult or religion.
