Sacred Somatic Dance Emersion
13 – 15 January
Sacred Somatic Dance is a culmination and a 35 year emersion into Traditional Egyptian dance, a deep inner knowing of ancient wisdom and the union of contemporary Somatic practices and body work. This passion of the dance took me to the somatic practices. My body knew that there was a deeper profound connection to the dance. The somatic practices that have informed my work are Alexander Technique, Body Mind Centring, Continuum, Ideokenisis, Feldenkaris & the physical, emotion and spiritual expression of the Endocrine /Chakric System. This marriage became Embodied Bellydance®.gn settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
