Chakradance further turns us inward, to become mindful and curious and in-tune with the memories and experiences that our physical (and emotional, spiritual, etc.) bodies contain.
Many of us are preoccupied with how intelligent our minds (not bodies) are, and have never even heard of the notion that our bodies contain actual wisdom and intelligence. Further, only recently have the ideas been reaching more people that trauma, emotional distress, stress, etc. are stored inside the cells of the body and that, for healing, the physical body must be included. Consider that, for many people, getting help in dealing with problems more likely involves talking (talking, using the mind and mouth) to a therapist than using the body in dance or anything else… Does any part of this paragraph describe you?
Chakradance helps us to go deep into ourselves, and when repeated, we can reach deep into multiple layers of our chakras. It seems that, collectively, we have been sold on quick fixes (there are pills for everything now), and have been conditioned to not notice that deep healing work is useful and necessary. We have been conditioned to accept the superficiality of our lives, including the normalcy of high pressure, & high stress – continuous doing with very little being.
In the pantry of inner-self nutrition, Chakradance provides nutrients in the categories Meditation, Music, Movement, Creativity and Intuition. I contend that Magic and Happiness are there too, and the way I facilitate there is always an oil diffusing to add the element of Aroma – so all 8 categories. A perfect offering for the inner being!
I am a certified facilitator, one of 4 in the state and less than 50 in the nation. There are about 450 of us world wide.
