With Leo Rutherford
Trance-Dance brings together body movement, dynamic rhythms, healing sounds, transformational breathing techniques with use of a blindfold or bandana – together stimulating a trance state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity and emotional well-being.
The dance: 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.
Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic cultures for thousands of years. Our contemporary approach to Trance-Dance brings together the richness of these ancient rituals with effective modern techniques. 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 may be accessed.
Trance-Dance & journeying are magical catalysts for emergence to happen and patterns to shift.
