Biodanza, commonly translated as “dance of life”, is a unique type of conscious dance that involves music, movement and emotion. It was developed in South America by Rolando Toro who drew on his knowledge of art, poetry, mythology, psychiatry and musical semantics to create this extraordinary art form which is now practiced in over 20 countries. There are no steps but it is not just free dancing. Every dance has purpose and the facilitator structures the sequence of dances in a particular way. Biodanza can be practiced at any age and at any level of fitness.
In this retreat we will have three Vivencias (Biodanza sessions). In the first session (Coming Home) we connect through movement and music with a felt-sense of coming home, to our bodies, our community, our human experience. In the second session (Sacred Earth) we reconnect with mother earth and heed to her silent message. In the third Vivencia (Wonderful World) we explore the various ways in which beauty is present in our lives.
