TRANCE DANCE RITUAL
TRANCE DANCE RITUAL
DANCE WITHOUT LIMITATIONS
Close your eyes. Begin the ‘Breath of Fire’. Relax and let your body move to the rhythm of the drums. Let go. The dancer disappears and you become the dance… and your soul travels, absent of the limitation of time and space.
Trance Dance is a unique blend of dance, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, a breathing technique and the use of a blindfold – together stimulating a “trance” state that promotes spiritual awakening, mental clarity, physical stamina and emotional wellbeing.
Enter the world of the spirit, voyage beyond time and space; experience the ecstasy of spiritual wholeness. Trance dance as shamans and indigenous peoples have for thousands of years.
From the beginnings of recorded history we find evidence of music and dance. It seems that our original relationship to it was for the purpose of worship, prayer, envision, healing and empowerment.
From a single Jaguar shaman calling the spirits of the Amazon, to 500 Umbanda healers dancing outside San Paolo, to 5,000 ravers trancing in Goa.
Trance dancing is a sacred ritual. When approached with that intent it is a powerful catalyst to the holistic you that you seek. There are no steps. We dance exploring our inner landscape absent of external expectations. It is your dance, unique to you.
Breathe, let go, become the dance of life!
LET’S CELEBRATE THE EXPERIENCE WHERE RHYTHM AND DANCE UNITE US. ENTER THE WORLD OF THE SPIRIT AND EXPERIENCE THE ECSTASY OF BEING ALIVE.
Dancing is one of the great pleasures of life, a true gift when done naturally absent of the need to control and guide movement. When we dance beyond any expected form or style we spontaneously create the dance by exploring and releasing our natural flow of feelings. By Trance Dancing we actually move our consciousness into spontaneous healing –spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.
– Frank Natale, aka “Professor Trance”
During the Trance Dance Ritual you will:
1 Choose an intention for the Ritual, which mentally prepares participants and focuses on the specific aspect of life that the dancer wishes to illuminate.
2 Fire breathing , which energises the body and opens the dancer to a broader spiritual experience.
3 Dance to various rhythms and music specifically selected for Trance Dance.
4 Recover by resting in a prone position. It is during this phase of the ritual that significant ‘inner wisdom’ is witnessed, as well as the deep integration of the original intent of the Trance Dance journey.
THE DANCER DISAPPEARS AND YOU BECOME THE DANCE.
BREATHE… LET GO, BECOME THE DANCE OF LIFE.
By dancing within the seclusion of darkness we discover parallel realities where solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems are possible. Like all vibrant elements of nature human beings grow in the light and transform in the dark.
– Wilbert Alix, www.trancedance.com
Through Trance Dancing we alter our consciousness and enter non-ordinary reality – the World of Spirit – that world beyond time and space where everything is possible.
The Trance Dance Ritual brings us back to ourselves , creating fresh opportunities to experience and rediscover our own power.
Today this ancient transformational and healing technique enjoys increasing popularity with spiritual seekers and contemporary dance groups worldwide.
For Maria dance has not only become a practice but a way of living, her greatest medicine, teacher and a path for self- discovery and balance. For the past years Maria has been sharing the transformative power of Trance Dance Ritual in London, Bristol – Spirit Fest, Switzerland and Berlin.
Maria is a professional dancer and Ritual Trance Dance facilitator. As a professional dancer, Maria started to question how does dance influence the self, can it be healing? This quest evolved into a dissertation, ‘Spirituality & Dance’ where she has looked into ancient and contemporary forms of spiritual dances such as the Shamanic Ritual Dances, the Whirling Dervishes and Osho Active Meditations in parallel to being a dancer in this century. Maria has got a wide experience in working with the body & mind and is exited to provide a safe space for you to explore and evolve.
“I believe every human being has a power within them waiting to be ignited and I am happy to hold a safe space where you can encounter, manifest and expand through the sacred dance”
