"WHAT IS TRANCE DANCE?"
Traditional Trance Dance has its roots in ancient shamanic traditions, it has been practiced for more than 35 thousand years in various tribes & cultures around the world as a medium of altering consciousness through dancing to powerful rhythms that help connect to our deep creative unconscious.
This 'trance' state of the creative unconscious, is naturalistic and can be compared to the fluidity of play or dreams. This is where we can tap into the ocean of infinite possibilities, where true healing and clarity can take place and where insights can be found.
Our Trance Dance Journey is a modern adaptation of more traditional rituals, designed for a generation of people that are part of a fast-paced world that so often gets us lost amongst its numerous distractions.
We use a variety of methods to induce a creative trance state and to help deepen us into an expanded state of consciousness:
1) A blindfold
2) A transformational breathing technique,
3) A Postive intention,
4) Spontaneous Dance and Intuitive body movements.
5) Ceremonial Cacao

“Each of us is a moving centre, a space of divine mystery. And though we spend most of our time on the surface in the daily details of ordinary existence, most of us hunger to connect to this space within, to break through to ecstatic states of consciousness, to be swept away.” - Gabrielle Roth
Come and Drop into the Dance...
We invite you to drop your comfort zone and dance into the more unknown aspects of yourself!
Allow yourself to go beyond the world of the five senses and open new doors and possibilities within your being.
'Dance until you shatter yourself' as the Persian poet Rumi says, surrender to the dance and trust the journey...
Every time you will step into the unknown darkness you will gradually learn to surrender to the expanded state of consciousness and are likely to attain deeper experiences .
Every journey is a new journey, a new opportunity to ride into yourself and beyond.
with Love, Seth
