Welcome to the 9th Biodanza New Year workshop at Dharma Mountain!
Theme for this year:
Guided by the primordial Archetypes of Life and Love
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 awakens archetypes rooted deep inside of us, both on a personal, collective and spiritual level.
We will dance myths and archetypes from both Hindu tradition, Greek mythology, shamanistic traditions, tarot, and Afro-Brazilian tradition (Candomble).
We will awaken all these aspects of our lives, and give them space to be lived at this transition into the New Year.
“What a Joy to annonce that my dear friend and collegue Verity Maud from South-Africa is going to join us at the New Year Biodanza Workshop. Verity is an incredible creative and gifted woman and I am happy that she will hold one of the vivencias this year! “ Unni Heim
Verity is passionate about connecting people to their creative potential and the abundance of expression that lies therein. In addition to being a didactic of Biodanza, she is an artist, interior designer,and plays an active role in Afrikaburn- an arts festival in the Karoo desert- as a contributing large scale installation artist and performance artist. She has been running The Artery workshops which combine Biodanza and art therapy teqniques in South Africa, Brazil and Mozambique for the past ten years. She incorporates the transformational training that she has done globally into her method. She works with a shelter for sexually abused girls as well as runs retreats for women and pregnant ladies, bringing the transformational power of creativity and movement alive.
For the 8 last years 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.
Come and celebrate life with us!
