About Conscious Dance
Dancing is one of the oldest forms of worship in almost every culture.
I came to the world of conscious dance (unstructured movement) through my initial priestess training, where we called upon the archetype of the dancing priestess to guide us through the mysteries. Being an introvert, I was not much of a dancer. I had moments of insight about how it felt to surrender to the music and allow my body to move how it wanted to move. Most of the time, I was too much up in my head and self-conscious to slip into that place of release.
The more I used dance to connect with my Spirit, to move and shift my energy, the more realizations I had about the power of sacred dance. Whether my body simply swayed to the music or spun or leaped with the music, I began to FEEL the dance working in my body, in a blessedly wordless way. These brief experiences of tapping into a whole new world of revelatory movement, drew me to participate in a certification training to become a conscious dance facilitator. Will wonders never cease!
I use conscious dance activities in my workshops and as part of my own spiritual practice.
