SHAMANIC TRANCE DANCE
Shamanic Trance Dance is an opportunity to drop into your inner landscape through being blindfolded and moving to the rhythm of the music which often induces a visionary state and has the capacity to give you answers, insights and healing.
It is similar to Ecstatic Awakening Dance in that it is a 5 stage process, warm-up, shake, trance-dance, grounding and visualization.
Maybe there is a question bubbling up inside that you would like clarity on or you are in the midst of life changes and you’re not sure how you feel about them?
Maybe you have heard tried other Shamanic Practices and would love to meet your power animals in the dance?
By using Shamanic Trance Dance you can access alternate states of consciousness & transmute any blocked energy into a source of empowerment. There is an opportunity to really dive inside yourself, all external distractions are taken away when we lose our sight. We are then able to tune into our soul essence and align ourselves with the intuitive heart, seeing much more clearly and discovering perhaps that under all the busyness of life that we are actually alright. Whether you a presenting with physical, emotional, mental or spiritual questions or limitations this dance can help to dissolve any layers of armouring and help you feel a sense of wonder again.
Shamanism is an ancient art form which has been around for at least 40 000 years and is still practiced by indigenous tribes around the world today. It is without doubt the most time-tested system for healing our environment and ourselves. Using the beat and rhythm of the Shaman’s drum and always working closely with our spirit kin we can access different realities to bring back healing, power and information. There is no distinction between physical, mental, and emotional illnesses there is always a spiritual reason. Shamanism is rooted in a deep reverence for the earth and the interconnectedness of everything from a blade of grass, to a star, to the electronic device you are reading this writing on. Everything has a spirit which can be either powerful or power empty. There has been a revival of Shamanic Practice since the 1960’s, a moving back towards this natural community / tribal based healing and coming together to celebrate and share our lives. It is a very much needed and welcomed in this time of great change and often people feel a sense of coming home when entering into the shamanic worlds.
Taking Charge for Ourselves
The beauty of Shamanism is that it does not believe in prolonging dependency on outside intervention, instead it encourages us to take charge of their own healing and insights.
We may work within our group in any number of Shamanic Ways, using ceremony, prayer & intention journeying on both the inner and outer landscapes. There are a few core practices that we may tap into during a group or 1:1 session:
Soul loss can happen for many different reasons usually through some type of physical or emotional trauma, such as accidents, surgery, or abuse of some kind, although it can also happen over time, if a person’s feelings and truths have been constantly denied by having to conform to the “family system” or “school System”, a part of a person’s soul will escape in order to survive and may not want or may not be able to find the way back. This often results in the person feeling empty and trying to fill the void with something else to varying degrees.
This process extracts energy blockages in the body and can often help with physical pain freeing the body system to allowing healing and higher energy vibration to enter the cells and DNA it is always followed by –
Power Animal Retrieval
This experience is one of the blessings of Shamanic work by bringing back power animals, one gets in touch with the natural world and a personal adventure is undertaken to get to know your unique gifts and strengths through communication with your own animal guide.
RECLAIM YOUR BODY WORKSHOP

Venue: De Koffie Pot, Bridge Street, Hereford, HR4 9DG
Tickets available from www.wildchocolateclub.com/#events
By being fully present in your body you get in touch with reality with the never ending now. This heartbeat, this breath, this feeling, this movement, this moment. By closing the eyes you start to feel from the inside instead of projecting from the outside. Your body is like a gateway that you can access your multi-dimensional from. We are physical, emotional, mental and spiritual beings all at once all at the same time.
Everything that you have ever experienced is held somewhere in your body, especially pre-verbal states. It is here thoughts become emotions, become physical symptoms. This is the place where wellness or illness is created this is also the place of healing.
Your Body as a Bridge
The body is a bridge between heaven and earth. It is a vehicle for your soul. It is through your body that you interact with your environment and express your souls purpose it is also a navigational tool to guide you through life. The soul speaks through sensations feelings thoughts and emotions. Your body instinctively knows when something feels right or wrong.The body is a map of your story past, present and future, everything is recorded here. Your painful memories, every trauma, your joy, your bliss, your habitual responses to life, your illness or wellness can all be seen here. In the way you sit, the way you move, the way your body parts interact with each other, all this shows how you are experiencing life in the present moment.
And here is your potential for change!
