Meditation in Motion "MAGIC STEPS" - let's dance Sunday, January 10th, 10am - 12pm
From many ancient cultures archaic dancing sequences have been handed down, which have direct impact on our consciousness and our abilities of perception. To practice them is a form of meditation in motion, which opens the door to a conscious experience of the unity of body, mind, and soul. The roots of theses magic steps are thousands of years old.
They address human archetypes which are hardly lived anymore in our modern times, as they are so devoid of conscious rituals.
These movement sequences are quite easy to learn and open the door to a space beyond our every day worries and the constant struggle with our past and our future. This seminar is an invitation to deal with your own being, physical body, and originality.
A part of the training will be accompanied by live music and each dancer has the opportunity to work on the connection of rhythm, voice, and dance. This workshop is wonderful for all levels. Be prepared to move!
$25, students should wear loose, comfortable clothing.
