The second Awakening cycle came to an end last night with a group of us dancing the Integration Dance. We all experienced the dance as being particularly uplifting and although it felt sad to complete the cycle the next one starts again on 20th June. I can't wait to begin again with friends old and new x
I'm off to France next week for a week's holiday. This is the reason for the gap between the end of a cycle and the start of the next. My group expressed dismay at the wait, anxious to start again. So, if you are in the middle of cycles, or unable to get to a weekly class what can you do?
First, keep an eye on my Forthcoming Events Page and come along to a weekend workshop. I use venues in Devizes and Cherhill and both are within fifteen minutes drive of Avebury Stone Circle. In addition, Devizes has it's wonderful canal and the impressive Caen Hill flight of locks. Cherhill has it's white horse, one of several in Wiltshire. I also highly recommend The Divine Cafe in Cherhill for a spot of lunch or afternoon tea! Within an hour's drive you can also reach Stonehenge or Bath, so plenty to see if you want to make a day or weekend of it.
Alternatively, why not pop across to www.chakradance.com and look at the range of music and DVDs you can buy? If you put HELLY into the promotional code box when you come to pay you will receive 10% off the price. The Seven Keys DVD and music is great and will lead you though an hour long Chakradance class in your own home.
Finally, I've been busy booking dates with venues for the summer. In addition to the Awakening cycle I will be starting a seven week Journeying series of Workshops, suitable for those who have already experienced the Awakening cycle, or who are healer or therapists and familiar with the chakra system.
I've also booked a three hour Celebration workshop for the afternoon of 21st June, to coincide with the Summer Solstice. I'm really looking forward to this one. It will be the very first time anyone will have danced this Celebration workshop in Wiltshire. I haven't danced it yet either, so I'll be busy dancing and experiencing it for myself while in France! Hopefully, if the weather's good I'll be dancing outside as our house is at the top of a hill in complete seclusion and tranquillity. Bliss!
So, lots of planning and lots of dancing planned for the coming weeks! If you are curious and wish to try Chakradancing for yourself, have a look at what's coming up and do join me. Come and experience your own inner dance and see why this healing practice is becoming so popular around the world.
Finally, please share and share again! Even if you can't make a workshop there may be others who can or who may be curious. Please help me to spread the word!
I'm using this image again, just because I love it so much, so why not!
As the current Awakening Cycle reaches it's end we close the group, limiting attendance to those who have attended so far. Whilst I find that people can join for individual sessions as we start our journey up the body, once we reach the Throat Chakra and the higher chakras people appear to find it harder to work with the later individual workshops without having begun the journey with the chakras connected to more earthly elements.
So, for the next few weeks a group of us will complete our Chakradance journey by dancing the Third Eye & Crown chakras and culminating in an Integration Dance.
On 20th June the next Awakening Cycle begins, again at 5.30 - 7.00 which I've found gives you the perfect start to your weekend and leaves you able to get home at a reasonable time on a Friday night. More details can be found on the 'Forthcoming Workshops' page. If you're curious, why not come along and try the first workshop, the Awakening Dance, where we dance through each of the chakras in one session. This will really give you a feel for Chakradancing and you'll see for yourself why people come back for more.
For those who have danced the Awakening Cycle already I will be introducing the seven week Journeying Workshops. These are longer, more meditative sessions, taking two hours instead of the usual one and a half. Some people may prefer to continue with the Awakening Cycle whilst others will feel the need to move onto a more in depth workshop.
A three hour Celebration Workshop is in the process of being planned. This will coincide with either the Solstice or New Moon ... watch this space. This Celebration dance is different from the one danced earlier this year. This has more of a light, summery feel to it.
Well, whilst continuing at White Horse Yoga Centre on a Friday as with all good venues, availability for a second evening session, is currently limited. By the end of this week I will have finalised a second venue for the Journeying Workshop, as well as some weekend sessions.
So keep watching! Let me know if you are further afield and wish to experience a workshop, I may be able to help.
