The Shamanic Trance-Dance Weekend. This is a partnered experience to aid deeper trance / altered states.

With Leo Rutherford, muliti-instrumentalist Paul Cerigo and sound therapist Ruth Ford.

Trance-Dance brings together body movement, dynamic drum rhythms, healing sounds and transformational breathing techniques, using a blindfold / bandana to stimulate inner visual response leading to a deep trance state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity and emotional well-being.

Dancers have a partner who looks after your personal space so you don''t crash into walls or other dancers. (NOTE: This is different from most other trance dances)

Through Trance-Dance we disappear into spirit, detaching from life’s ordinary challenges, able to let go and see through and past everyday issues to deeper patterns.  Shamans know that all dis-ease originates in the energy matrix of our being and “travel” to the source to effect healing.  For many of us these patterns can lie deeply hidden yet affecting us on every level.  Through these methods participants enter parallel realities where hidden patterns can be experienced and solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems can be accessed.

Cultures from every continent on this planet embraced unique dance forms based on the animals and elements of nature present within their domain. Their purpose in dancing was to enter elemental or animal consciousness, to become the spirit of the sun, moon, or shape-shift into an animal and or plant life.  To ‘dance like nature’ was to vibrate at the same rate as Creator, much the same as any newborn child will mimic its environment out of love and appreciation for its existence. Dance was synonymous with prayer, a demonstration of reverence.

    Trance-Dance is a magical catalyst for emergence to happen and patterns to shift:
  • • Develop greater creativity and self-expression
  • • Develop richer connections to your Self, to others and to spirit
  • • Gain flexibility, vitality, strength, improve body image

The workshop will take place at Millbrook Village Hall in Bedfordshire. The address is Sandhill Close, Millbrook MK45 2JD
