New Year Biodanza 2012

Living the numinous unconcious

Welcome to a 4 days deepening biodanza retreat at Dharma Mountain in Valdres, Norway.

Theme for the retreat:

Living the Numinous Unconscious -the divine aspects of life.

During the 4 days we will explore different aspects that helps us awaken the divine Self. The following qualities are sentral: – love – courage to live – illumination and – intasy (internal extacy)   As we are in nature, we will also use the four elements earth, fire, air and water to help us in this process.

  • The element of earth is a symbol of the primordial, our internal centre, the base, the roots, the connection with here-and-now, and our ability to feel Mother Earth and all life as a place for healing, comfort, creation and rest.
  • The element of water represents our ability to live with flexibility, adjustment, purity, sensuality, pleasure, melting together and fusion. It represents us allowing ourselves to abandon, to give up control.
  • The element of fire relates to our vital energy, our determination, intensity, transformation, erotism, passion and deep desire. It is also related to our inner flame, the unique energy waiting to be expressed and manifested in life.
  • The element of air helps us to open up for freedom, expansion, lightness, tenderness and sensitivity. From the open heart we can receive life in an embrace.

As alchemists we’ll explore and unite these human qualities and allow them to harmonize within us and with life around us.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”    
by Marianne Williamson(The quote was used by Nelson Mandela at his Inauguration Speech, 1994)

You do not need any previous knowledge of dance. There will not be any steps taught. All you need is a pulsating heart and a desire to open up to life in all its beauty! Through dance and human contact we open up to connect deeper with ourselves, with others and life in all its totality. Let go of what you no longer need to carry and open up to the path of your heart!
The retreat takes place in the middle of wild nature with mountains, rivers, trees, fresh air and clean snow. For the two 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 healing and joyful journey.
Come and celebrate life with us!!
