On Friday we will dance the Third Eye Workshop. THIRD EYE CHAKRA – THE DANCE OF INTUITIONAt the third eye chakra, we can lift up into ecstatic and altered states of consciousness through trance-dance. The practice of trance-dance is hugely popular throughout the world, and has its heritage in many of the ancient cultures of South East Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. The movements tend to be simple and repetitive. The dance of the third eye is the dance of the intuitive mind. Each dancer drifts into his or her own visual universe of images, colours, and insights, achieving a deeply meditative state. (www.chakradance.com).
The workshop will take the same format as the others in the Awakening sequence. We'll start with a meditation to settle for the workshop. We'll then share how the week has gone since the last dance. The dancing then starts with a warm up, followed by a mini dance through all seven main chakras. This gives us an opportunity to check in with how each one is feeling. Then we'll start the main dance of the evening, in this case the Third Eye Chakra dance. We'll finish with the personal creation of a mandala, a way of expressing the dance in physical form, and finally a meditation.
Why not come and join us?
This Friday we'll be dancing the throat chakra workshop, the Dance of Vishuddha.The Throat Chakra Dance is the dance of expression.
All over the world cultures interweave the voice and dance to increase the awareness of spirit. The Greek word 'Horus' refers to both song and dance and is the origin of the word chorus.
Join us on Friday as we weave sound and movement in a ‘mantra-dance’ which intensifies our self-expression and creativity.
We dance Chakradance in a room lit by candle light with a lowered gaze or our eyes closed. There are no taught moves, we move instinctively to music chosen to resonate to each particular chakra. The combination of movement and music creates healing for mind, body and spirit.
What better day to dance the heart chakra workshop than on Valentine's Day!
This is a dance of air, it is light and free flowing. Through the dance we start to love ourselves, getting rid of past hurts and finding peace. It is at the heart where the elements of both masculine and feminine come together.
There are two workshops this week:
Friday night we dance the masculine, warrior, fire dance. The solar plexus dance. As usual the workshop runs from 6.00 - 7.30pm at White Horse Yoga Centre, Devizes and costs £9.00.
Space is limited so please contact me to secure your place.
On Saturday we dance the Celebration 1 Workshop. This is a longer, three hour workshop where we dance from the crown chakra to the base chakra, followed by an Integration dance. This will be the first time the Celebration workshop will run in Wiltshire. Again, this is at White Horse Yoga Centre
The Base Chakra, or Root Chakra is linked to survival, instincts and stability. It is connected to your physical life. Muladhara nurtures your most basic needs and desires.
Muladhara resonates to the colour red. It is located at the base of the spine. When your base chakra is balanced you feel secure and balanced.
If your base chakra is not in balance then you may feel unfocussed, you may feel low and lack a sexual drive. Anemia, digestion issues and low blood pressure may be indications your base chakra is out of balance.
Ways to help balance your base chakra:
Each month, throughout 2017, I will be posting in more detail about the topic of the month. Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like me to discuss.
