Biodanza, meditations, cacao ceremony, shamanic rituals and flow dancing
Wednesday 29th December 18.00 – Saturday January 1st 14.00
Since we last came together for a New Year retreat the world has been changing. Many of us are waking up, and there is a deep calling to live even more true; true to our deepest soul call. The end of the year invites to release and integrate the past, and to welcome and prepare for the future. In the here and now, we awaken qualities rooted deep inside of us, both on a personal, collective and spiritual level.
Through dance, human connection, meditation, ceremonies and rituals we will give time and space to welcome the new, to allow transformation, to birth the gifts that wants to be shared with the world.
Since 2010 we have had a fantastic time at the Biodanza New Year retreat.
I am once again happy to invite new and old participants to this deep, healing and joyful journey, this time also inviting in the new through other modalities then Biodanza on our journey. Modalities that I love and that has an intimate place in my own life.
About Biodanza: Biodanza is a radical system of healing, integration and change. It invites us to open up to life fully on all levels and to awaken dormant life potential. Dance, movements, connection on all levels (connection with yourself, with others and with life in its totality) are essential as powers of change in Biodanza.
About Shamanic Flowdancing: In 2006 I created a dance meditation method that I called Flowdancing. It builds on energy and movement, and it is an inner journey. The shamanistic Flowdancing is a ritual to enter our inner guidance and to be in ceremony with life. It is deeply embodying as well as a journey in energy, shape-shifting and our imaginary world.
About Shamanic Ceremonies and Rituals: To enter the moment in a ceremonial way opens new doors of perception. In many ancient traditions the ceremonial space is in fact an ever-present state. It is a way of showing our gratitude of life. During our retreat we will invite you into some heartful and loving rituals for healing and reconnection. On one of these ceremonies, we use ceremonial Cacao.
Come and celebrate life with us!
Dharma Mountain has been in close contact with the municipal through the whole pandemic of how to run groups in this time and there might be some rules we need to follow in December. Because of that we have a lower number of spaces available, so we can all feel safe and have space to dance. So please book early if you want to join!
