Event description

Description

This is event is a deeper dive into Dance Meditation. A type of ecstatic dance that goes through different elements and facilitation using koans, taoist philosophy, visualisation and partner exercises to create a mindful, balanced container for the practices.

It is a very powerful practice similar some of the best Qigong (like Tai Chi but for healing and spirituality) techniques in the world that I have learned from some great taoist masters. With this method it is less difficult to share and it is more accessible to complete beginners. It is also similar to five rhythms and can create a sense of flow, and passion and ecstasy.

There is a some focus on the philosophy of taoism and similar philosophies of buddhism and some discussion on connecting with elements. There will also be a chance to connect to nature with nature based qigong techniques that are shared in this retreat such as animal play and sun and moon and tree qigong.

This is less about teacher-student but more about connecting to the different aspects of nature and oneself.

There is 4 and a half hours booked each day in the Avalon Centre.

From 9-10am and 12:30-3:30 PM

There is a lot of flexibility and spontaneity but for the purpose of creating some outline. There will be a dance in the morning, one in the afternoon for an hour and maybe an hour of qigong, an hour of philosophy everyday. It really depends on the group and what is most appropriate and wanted also.

Glastonbury is a great place with vegan cafes and restaurant, a very new age kind of scene of holistic shops, interesting sites such as the Tor, Chalice Well and Caves that have magical energy. You can come do 2-3 hours of dance meditation a day, really explore some deeper philosophy and some nature based qigong or herbalism and explore glastonbury for yourself with the group.

It is expected that there are 10-15 people coming and so you will likely make very good friends and connections for life.
