Conscious Free-Style Dance Event

Dance Divine is free-style dance event that helps people reconnect with their feelings, intuition, community and Source.

It does this by drawing on the therapeutic powers of conscious movement, music and connection and by providing a safe container in which we graduate from structure and facilitation to practice listening and responding to the Authentic Self - our own wise authority.

Yup, you guessed it...

Guess what it is?

Return to the Wild Intelligence of the Body.

Will you hold another who has been touched by the darkness within? Will you love them enough to allow them to fall apart in your arms? To unravel, to become unglued, and to feel unbearably lost as the wisdom of their process unfolds? Will you be the space in which they can finally meet the feelings and emotions that have been kept at bay for a lifetime?

To love another in this way you must touch everything that is unresolved within you – all of your own unmet sadness, abandoned shame, discarded grief, and deserted aloneness. You are willing to no longer stay safe on the sidelines. You are willing to get messy. Even gooey and drippy.

Will you set aside your need for the other to change, to be different, to be “cured,” to be transformed, and to be healed? Will you resist the temptation to talk them out of their embodied experience, to tell them everything will be okay, and to dishonor the creativity hidden inside the unwanted? Will you allow your heart to break with them, and endure the urge inside you to put it all back together again? Will you fall into the unknown with them, holding them close, and provide a home for their brokenness?

To care about others, yourself, and the world in this way you must stay radically embodied. You are no longer interested in transcending suffering, confusion, and neurosis, for you see these as thundering expressions of the path itself. Please don’t turn away. As your attention moves out into the conceptual world, return to the wild intelligence of your body, for it is there that love is working behind the scenes, giving birth to its sweet activity in this dimension.

As a little encouragement, if you are curious but a little unsure...

Newcomers, you get a FREE Info session + FREE dance!

The info session is FREE for everyone though, so even if you have been dancing for a while, please come and ask questions, take in a little theory and pick up a few tips & techniques that you can work with on the dance floor.

By attending you also get a 45% discount on a package of 3 private sessions as a way to follow-up or go deeper.

Thank you so much for your very enthusiastic response to my request for feedback regarding a new Moving Mediation class. With that kind of enthusiasm, I can only say YES!

I am in the process of booking some Saturday morning dates at the Dance Centre, from 10AM to 12PM, starting in December 2017. I will try it 2 times per month for now, and see how the attendance is. I will confirm the dates with you a.s.a.p!

Would you be interested in a Moving Meditation class? Imagine a music set without the high-energy parts. I used to offer a class like this called "Ground Work". I really loved it, and I miss it! I also get the sense that people are craving more softness and gentleness.

Please let me know if that would appeal to you as a regular offering - I'd like to get a sense of it's viability...



Sometimes people tell me that they have been on this email list for a long time (years!) yet have not come to a dance. Perhaps you joined originally because your intuition said "psssst, click on that" but you feel resistant...

Resistance is that pause in the flow where the ego-mind jumps in and creates 1001 reasons for you not to do something. When your mind senses that you are about to step into 'uncharted territory' (new thought, movement, feelings, experience, etc.) it feels threatened because it can't predict for you what is going to happen. That goes against the ego-mind's idea of control, so it says; "Danger, do not enter!".

The pay off is predictability, reliability, familiarity, comfort, reality as you know it.

The cost is personal growth, and perhaps your unbridled potential.

Conscious dance is one way to practice transcending the ego-mind. Sometimes physically moving beyond our patterned ways enables us to feel/think/perceive beyond our patterned ways. And sometimes it is the heart/gut/intuition that knows what we truly need - the mind being better at what it thinks we need...

So as a little encouragement, and to prove that we don't bite and aren't too weird...

Newcomers - join us for a FREE at our Open House on November 5th, 2017, at 6:15 PM! (free info session + dance)

Everybody - join us for a FREE info session: Introduction to Conscious Dance & Embodiment

Everybody - by attending, you get a 45% discount on a package of 3 private sessions as a way to follow-up or go deeper.
