About the Event
We dance up to solstice together, four weeks, four dances with the divine.
These four weeks are after I return from the final phase of the teacher training, I will return with all the juicy goodness and share it first with you all. The Immersion is on The Embodied Soul and the hunger for Spirit.
I really could not have timed it better, as our final class will be on Summer Solstice.
In each class we will build upon the next to bring us to climax at the Solstice with a dance portal and community ritual.
I can not really say what these four weeks will deliver as I have not emerged after the immersion, but please know that DANCE IS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE! and if that is your jazz, then you will feel right at home here.
And for those who have different faiths, or are unsure what they believe around soul and spirit, then this is a fantastic open-hearted dance floor to discover and test your theories.
During this term some of the threads that will be present in the teaching are;
Mahi a Atua - learning the purakau (stories) and embodiment of our Atua ( gods)
Whakamana ~ upholding the mana of each other.
Whanaungatanga - group body connection and belonging.
Ringatoi - written and spoken word.
Hautua Rongo - the practice of nonviolence, internally and externally.
Mana Motuhake - Self-determination and a space of mana enhancement.
Ahurutanga - Sacred Space.
When we gather together in groups for long periods of time something sacred is created, this is now our container for this purpose.
To weave those loose fibers together, to bind what needs to hold fast, to return to the earth that which is no longer required and to find other threads from other humans that may support your practice.
To honour the sacred threads of this group body and to DANCE! full bodied towards ourselves and all that moves with us.
We are stronger together, in all things.
Movement as mihi, Movement as an acknowledgment of where we are and what arrives to move.
We will be a committed group as best we can, turning up to each session.
Bring a blanket and personal water bottle, if you have an offering to the altar know that you are welcome to add.
We turn up for ourselves, to the process, in the comfort and discomfort,
in the grit and the grace with the same group of dancers each fortnight.
Deepening the intimacy with yourself and your practice.
I am looking for kaitiaki (crew) for this series, if you would like to work in exchange for this series please reach out.
