Soul Dance is an Ängsbacka gathering for all of you who love to dance! Welcome to a celebration and exploration of physical and emotional expressions through dance and music.

The intention of Soul Dance is to bring us closer to ourselves and others, to become more intimate, connected and present. This is an opportunity to get to know and to experience different movement practices that help you to get into your body to experience the full spectrum of emotions –  from the subtle to the ecstatic. You will be guided by some of the most creative space holders within their fields to journey through different dimensions of dancing.

Body Wisdom

This Soul Dance is dedicated to Body Wisdom. We will explore conscious dance and movement inspirations as a powerful and direct way to access and explore our inner landscape.

Conscious dance and other embodied practices can be seen as a journey that leads us back home to ourselves. It is a journey of exploring how we recreate ourselves – moment to moment – through our sensations, postures, and accompanying thoughts and emotions. It is a journey of integration that embraces how we live within our body, mind, and emotional world. The outcome can be self-discovery that helps us to free up fixed and rigid ways of being, thinking, and doing leading to greater inner freedom, energy, and aliveness.

During this course, we will directly activate embodied awareness through dance, and movement practices alongside related Inquiries and sharing with each other. We will turn towards our bodies to explore the ways we move and feel. We will extend our capacity to be with what we find, discover our bodies’ inherent wisdom, and be open to everything. The practice of Soul Dance is exhilarating, joyous, and transformative.

Dance

In Soul Dance, we explore modalities like Ecstatic Dance, Contact improvisation, breathwork, active meditations, and other embodiment practices. The main focus is not on learning set steps, but on letting the body move freely, feeling oneself, expressing with movement and voice and letting go of the social mind.

Adding more dimensions we also include guided movement, exercises, and techniques, to create openness and safety. We will co-create space for expression, silence, joy and deep connection to oneself and to aliveness.

The journey

This four-day-long dance gathering will take you on a journey where you will be invited  to release physical and emotional tensions in a playful and simple way through different forms of dance and movements. Soul Dance is for everyone. All bodies and levels are welcome. No previous dance experience is required. 

 

“There is nothing more miraculous for meditation than dancing. If you dance fully, if you dance totally, then in that dance your being comes out of the body. The body will go on moving in rhythm but you will experience that you are out of the body. and then your real dance begins: below, the body will go on dancing; above, you will dance. the body on the earth, you in the sky. The body will dance the dance of matter, you will dance the dance of consciousness.”
– OSHO
