Online Practitioner Training
It's with great excitement we announce the launch of the BlissDance Foundation Training Course, launching in collaboration with the Shakti Shiva Academy in May 2023.
YEAR 1 - LEVEL 1
BlissDance Foundation Training
Personal & Practitioner Mastery
BlissDance is a TANTRIC DANCE OF TOTALITY.
It invites us to feel , express and move to the pulsating EROS OF LIFE ~ the light, the dark, the shadow ~ leaving nothing out.
In doing so, we dance ourselves back home into our hearts, into love, and into our authentic essence.
It is the dance of True Intimacy with Self.
BlissDance seduces us into an intricate weave of INTIMACY WITH REALITY, where we get to savour directly the sacred NECTAR OF LIFE.
Some say it is the art of dancing the SACRED and the SENSUAL as a
MOVEMENT OF AWAKENING.
Its burning question is, 'What do you really, really want?'
Can you allow yourself to EMBODY YOUR DESIRE?
"BlissDance is the Dakini's way of expressing embodied consciousness in harmony with cosmic reality."
Dakini is SkyDancer
She is movement, sound, energy in motion, constantly shapeshifting & changing like the weather.
When we move consciously to music, we align ourselves with the way of the Deep Inner Feminine within us all.
BlissDance is a relational, organic weave designed to facilitate:
~ the regeneration of our erotic and creative life force energies
~ the gentle release of 'body armouring;' our emotional protection against feeling it all
~ a profound connection with our passionate , intuitive, instinctual selves
~ a strengthening of that still , silent centre within us from which everything arises
~ a deepening capacity for intimate presencing with ourselves and with others, as well as with all of existence
~ the integration of split polarities into an integrated, balanced whole
~ direct embodied experiences of our multi-dimensional selves, from the ordinary to the extraordinary, and the mundane to the magical
Ultimately, BlissDance invites us into the oceanic experience of the liquid body melting into the larger body of life; and into eternal flowing bliss.
As beloved BlissDance founder, Shakti Malan said:
Bliss is what happens
when we fully embrace
both our shadow & our light
And we come to rest as Love
