Dance the 7 Chakras – A Healing Journey with Mandala Art, is so much more than a dance workshop, it is a healing journey, that brings you home to yourself. Modern life is so busy for many of us and Chakradance is a wonderful way to connect back with yourself at a deeper level and become more aware of what is going on with your body, where you are holding tension and blocked energy. We dance in sacred space, giving you the opportunity to play, explore, dance and journey, to find your flow and self- expression through dance, music and art. This is an inner journey, where you find your own rhythm and flow, as you move to music that ranges from tribal rhythms, to slow and sensual to ecstatic trance music. There are no special moves to learn and it suits experienced dancers or those who have never danced before.
The chakras are a gateway to our spirit and connect with our emotional body, mental body, physical body and glandular system. When our chakras are open, balanced and healthy, there is a flow of energy from our spirit through our emotions and physical body. When a particular chakra is blocked, the energy is dammed up, affecting the expression of emotions and energy through this chakra. For example the solar plexus chakra is the chakra regulating vitality, personal power, confidence and self expression. When this chakra is blocked. energy levels are reduced and self expression and confidence ar inhibited.
"We describe CHAKRADANCE as a dance practice for the soul. It is about reconnecting back to our true essence or true self. Our intention with Chakradance is to honor the work of the soul. To tap into that deeper part of us and hear what it has to say." Nathalie Southgate - founder of Chakradance
So many people in modern society are suffering from depression, addictions, loss of meaning and purpose. In traditional shamanic cultures, such symptoms were seen as indicating a loss of connection with the deeper self or soul. Basically there is a loss of communication and connection between our inner and outer self and life.
The soul or deeper self, has a natural instinct to heal. Our soul is always communicating with us - through our body, feelings, dreams, art and dance. Chakradance is a wonderful way to make time to listen to your soul and to facilitate a deep healing journey to begin.
Chakradance Awakening – 9 week Journey
beginning Friday 13th October 7.30pm
Come and join us for the 9 week Chakradance Awakening Journey, offered by Katherine and the Wellness Centre starting on Friday 13th October through to 8th December at 7.30pm to 9.30pm. This is a deep healing and awakening journey through the 7 chakras, with an Introductory Week at the beginning and Integration week at the end, where we dance the 7 chakras.
Each week, we dance to specially formulated music that harmonises and balances each of the chakras as we go on a guided journey, where you explore the sacred energies and archetypes of each of the chakras. Dance to the watery, sensual flow of your inner goddess, or the fiery rhythms of your inner warrior, as you get the chance to explore through dance aspects of yourself that you may not usually express. This is a wonderful way to bring healing to any blockages or imbalances in the chakra and to activate a flow of energy and connect you with a positive, healthy expression for each of the chakras.
Chakradance suits all levels of fitness and ages and no dance experience is needed. Wear comfortable clothes that allow easy movement. Classes are 2 hours and your investment for the 9 weeks is $275 including drawing materials. Each class includes mandala art, which is simply drawing in a circle, that acts as a container for the healing and transformation that takes place and helps to integrate your experience.
"Each time I journey through this 9 week journey, I'm amazed that there is yet another level of insight, healing and transformation to be danced into my body and life." The 9 week group is a sacred journey into a deeper connection with yourself, where you will have the opportunity to listen to the messages of your body and soul and find the healing and insights that are right for you at this time. This is a deep, powerful and even life changing journey, that words cannot really describe.
