“Shamanic healing is a journey. It involves stepping out of our habitual roles, our conventional scripts, and improvising a dancing path.”
In several ancient societies, it was the role of the shaman to connect with spirits and heal. The shaman used ritual 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 think we should reclaim our capabilities to heal ourselves, others and the world through ecstatic rituals. All the elements in 5Rhythms movement meditation serves the purpose of better connection. Connection to the physical world, to ourselves, to others and to ideas, concepts, to the divine.
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.REGISTER TODAY!
During this week we’ll have two workshops. You are welcome to join the first or the second or both.
Our dance is deeply connected to the life on Earth. Dance – most importantly – gives us joy, gives us pleasure. It can do so, because it connects us to the fundamental joy and happiness of being alive. Dance roots us into the universal joy of life.
On this workshop we’ll get a closer look at our connection to the living Earth. We’ll awaken our senses to see and feel into the core of the fundamental elements: earth, fire, water and air. We’ll explore the ways how they move in us, how they bring us alive, how they support our joy of being.REGISTER TODAY!
