Biodanza: The still point of the dance
Teacher: Lisa Firer
Cost: 2 days' accommodation + R150 surcharge
Dates: Friday 05 October 2018 - Sunday 07 October 2018
Biodanza is an invitation to dance with life. It uses music and movement to create a space in which to taste the joy of living; to experience yourself deeply and to open up more fully to others and the world around you. It fosters a capacity for creativity and play and confident, heart-centred living. Although the facilitator will give guidance, the movements are spontaneous and entirely your own. There is nothing to get “right”, so experience in dance is not a requirement. The retreat uses Mindfulness practice to support participants to be more present to their experience, and will include periods of silence and meditation. We all have, inherently, each in our own way, what is needed to live a life that is rich and full, vital and present-centred.
