FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS RETREATS:

“That was a very beautiful experience. An amazing journey inward & out. To express in a free space filled with joyful vibes & gorgeous smiling faces. In sound, in rhythm, in motion, in colour, in sweat, the Dance, the Soul.” Cath

“The smiles, the kind eyes, the hugs, the bits when I lost myself in the music, the joy of the moments when it felt as if the whole room was jumping in unison.” Salvo

“ What a profound experience! The music was so beautiful ... it carried me effortlessly inward facilitating a deep connection to Spirit, moving my body in a way that I felt I had little control over. It was magical! Thank you ” Ashley

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:

The High on Life Ecstatic Dance Gathering was created by Seth Newman, who as well as growing up with the Indian Mystic Osho in India in the 1970's, has trained in Living Tantra, Bioenergetics, Humanistic Psychotherapy and Active Meditation. He is a long-term student at the Open Centre in London, and has trained with Guy Gladston (Bioenergetics), Amadis Cammell (Core-energetics), Michael Gavin (Radix Neo Reichian bodywork), Silke Zeihl (Postural Integration) and Tim Brown (Dance of Awareness). Seth brings a holistic approach to his work with groups and individuals.

FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS RETREATS:

“Thank you guys. The festival was an exceptional experience of deep healing, awakening, and opening. I feel so light, peaceful, and full of Love. Through the journey we took, I touched some of my wounds, gently but deeply releasing and healing what was ready to be alchemised. Thank you to all the other lovely participants. Please organise the next one soon :-)” Tanja

“ The festival gave me the opportunity to go deeper into my body and discover new experiences which I hadn’t been able to tap into before. It was a good mix of different exercises, and I had a really blissful experience with the breathwork.” Vijay

” I feel so grateful I had the opportunity to attend this festival. I felt that Seth, through his presence, allowing, way of being, created a very unique, safe space in which I could release, discover, explore and meet different aspects of myself. I was amazed how during the two days I was – often unexpectedly and gently – led to bring forth and embrace a child, an ancient woman, an animal, a spoiled brat, a mother, a lover, a goddess… Also through Seth’s guidance and suggestions I felt within very short spaces of time both my immense sorrow/yearning/pain and my immense joy/gratitude, realising how close to each other these seemingly opposites are. Today I feel a more solid belonging in the world, and a heightened awareness of the soles of my feet on the floor, like the earth, was more magnetic!” Maria
