dancing the goddess
embodiment, ecstasy, empowerment & awakening
Dancing the Goddess is a powerful, transformative practice for EVERY WOMAN of connecting with &
embodying the DIVINE FEMININE. Devised by Shakti Sundari, it synthesises her 16 years as a teacher of Conscious Dance, Embodied Awareness, Sacred Sexuality & Feminine Awakening.
Dancing the Goddess is not just a dance class: it offers you a comprehensive practice and safe, sacred
space in which to experience the ongoing personal and spiritual growth of embodied connection
with the Divine Feminine within a growing and diverse community of women.
Dancing the Goddess is born of the yogic understanding that the energy of all creation
(kundalini or Shakti) is Feminine and we can only access this energy, which is both sensual
and spiritual, and its awakening effects, through the body.
In order to fully access and embody our Shakti essence, we must liberate our bodies and
sexual energy from the wounds and conditioning of the past and reclaim the spiritual gifts
and wisdom of our sacred, sovereign woman-hood. When this opening occurs, our
dance, both on and off the dance-floor, originates in the flow of divinity.
Invoking the energy, qualities and blessings of Goddess archetypes into
our space and bodies is a powerful part of this practice. And we work with the 4 pillars of the
Dancing the Goddess practice: 1) Embodiment, 2) Awakening, 3) Transformation & 4) Integration
We are remembering a way of being that was once a Sacred Art in
ancient Goddess-Loving Cultures and Tantric Temples.
We are re-membering ourselves as fully activated, self-empowered women,
within a loving, supportive and deeply nurturing sisterhood.
Each Dancing the Goddess workshop takes you on an integrated journey, including:
* creating an altar to the Goddess
* sitting together and sharing in sacred sisterhood circle
* chanting mantra
* yoga & breathing practice
* guided free-form movement and dance
* paired/group processes
* deep relaxation / sound bath
which will impact you both during the event and as you take the experience out into your life.
