SHAMBALA GATHERINGS, Sweden
PRICE: 850€ / 8500kr (including VAT., food and accommodation)
“A week to pamper, rest and be touched by the natural essence of our wild being. This is a journey into softness and intensity on the same time to restore the strongest sides of ourselves into lightness.”
“Opening the doors to our natural self, organic, sensorial, wild, powerful, sensitive, authentic, touching, smelling, tasting, feeling, celebrating or senses…”
Opening the doors… to our natural self, organic, sensorial, wild, powerful, sensitive, authentic…touching, smelling, tasting, feeling, celebrating or senses…
Every embodied moment in contact with the elements & the specific qualities of natural places reveals essential teachings to us… Being present… embodied, receptive, taking space, playing with the unknown, feeling our empowerment and honouring or experiences. 5Rhythms, 5 days, 5 Elements.
Our physical & energetic bodies are already and permanently receiving and responding to the multiple environments we experience in our daily life. We are often only few breaths away from feeling and embracing all the magical and universal connections we are designed to enjoy in our existence as human beings.
One blessed day, the dance became our practice, our gateway to relax our mind, energise our body, empower our hearts and give space to our creative soul… at every dance since then a sense of aliveness and a deeper level of presence opens in us.
We will have our dance sessions in the majestuous studio by the lake and explore in the forest around. This week of explorations will be physical, embracing all emotions and states of mind using the high goodness of collective human intelligence and the soft earth vibrations of Sweden to support and go further in our individual journeys into life. Hands on rocks and moss, skin in the water, summer is in the air… waves of heat, alive sexual energy, unspoken wisdoms, intuitions, morning fog whispers, conscious touch, eye gazing, body contact, ancient memories, clear visions… all become source of inspiration.
Playing, laughing, falling into love, cocooning into movement, screaming and being silent, universal connections, this is a journey into the untamed landscapes of our souls freeing the unpredictable and unlimited goodness of being human.
“I open the gateways of movement, touch, sounds, words, rituals, play and silence welcoming everyone as you are, challenging and taking care. In my experience everyone have it’s own medicine for the group and the group it’s own for the world, the high vibration of Iceland have its own medicine for each of us and it is a precious gift to share this unique journey with you.”
