“We have come to be danced, not the nice invisible, self conscious shuffle, but the matted hair flying – voodoo mama – shaman shakin’ – ancient bones dance, the strip us from our casings – return our wings – sharpen our claws & tongues dance, the shed dead cells and slip into the luminous skin of love dance...” — Jewel Mathieson

“As you free your body to receive the power of being, all kinds of feelings start to flow – old feelings, new feelings, dark and light. Being alive is dangerous. It means feeling, feeling things you might not want to feel or thought you never would. Being alive means having a heart and expressing it.” — Gabrielle Roth

“To me, life in its totality is good. And when you understand life in its totality, only then can you celebrate; otherwise not. Celebration means: whatsoever happens is irrelevant – I celebrate. Celebration is not conditional on certain things: “When I am happy then I will celebrate,” or, “When I am unhappy I will not celebrate.” No. Celebration is unconditional; I celebrate life. It brings unhappiness – good, I celebrate it. Celebration is my attitude, unconditional to what life brings.”
When we combine breath, movement and awareness we come out of our everyday auto-pilot, our every day trance (our normal way of being with ourselves) into the Here, Now reality.
The Tantric Trance Dance™ process is designed to help you to dissolve tension and stress so that you can have the rich experience of Being Your sex Your heart and Spirit at the same time.
Tantric Trance Dance’s primary focus is on healing, evolution and deepening our connection with the Heart.
The Tantric Trance Dance™ experience is a doorway, a doorway into the rich experience of being fully embodied in ourselves. It is not an escaping from life problems, but rather a transmuting of how we see them. Stepping into the space of befriending all or ourselves, including the more uncomfortable aspects. and This is how we grow. By being willing to dance on our edge, befriending everything that we feel takes the courage and trust of a warrior of the heart.
OSHO (11 Dec 1931 – 19 Jan 1990) was an Indian Mystic who is published by over 200 publishers worldwide and in over 60 languages. His commune, now known as a meditation resort, is one of India’s main tourist attractions, and offers a wide range of meditations.
A professor of philosophy he traveled throughout India in the 1960s as a public speaker. He was a critic of institutionalised religions and advocated a more open attitude towards human sexuality.
In 1970, Osho settled for a time in Mumbai, initiating disciples known as Sannyasins, and expanded his spiritual teaching and work. In his discourses, he gave his original understanding and views on the writings of many religious traditions, mystics, and philosophers from around the world. His intelligent discourse and charisma attracted a growing number of seekers from around the world.
He moved to Pune in 1974, where his disciples established a foundation and an ashram for his presence and work, where a variety of transformational tools could be offered to the visitors. Among those transformational tools, the ashram offered various original meditations that Osho developed, many with an original musical score specifically designed to accompany each meditation. In addition, therapies derived from ancient and modern Western traditions including the Human Potential Movement were offered in the ashram to function as a preparation for meditation.
Accept yourself as you are. And that is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against your training, education, your culture. From the very beginning you have been told how you should be. Nobody has ever told you that you are good as you are. Don’t be obsessed with yourself — but a natural self-love is a must, a basic phenomenon. Only then out of it can you love somebody else. Accept yourself, love yourself. Nobody else has ever been like you and nobody else will ever be like you; you are simply unique, incomparable. Accept this, love this, celebrate this — and in that very celebration you will start seeing the uniqueness of the others, the incomparable beauty of the others. Love is possible only when there is a deep acceptance of oneself, the other, the world. Acceptance creates the milieu in which love grows, the soil in which love blooms. — Osho
About Wilhelm Reich
Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957)
One of the most significant contributions to contemporary psychotherapy was made by Wilhelm Reich. He was the first psychoanalyst to include the importance of deep relaxation of the body, as well a champion of emotional release work with people. A sizeable majority of body psychotherapists draw directly or indirectly on the pioneering work of Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957); originally a respected psychoanalyst, a theoretical and technical innovator who in the 1920s and 1930s was responsible for hammering out much of the shape of modern psychoanalysis. Reich became convinced that the internal logic of Freud’s ideas pointed directly to the body and he gradually began to introduce bodywork into his clinical practice.
This step was thoroughly unacceptable to most analysts and was only one of Reich’s unorthodoxies. he was also at the time a communist and believed (inline with freud own earlier work) that neurosis and anxiety were caused by lack of physical sexual satisfaction rathe than by purely mental stresses. however reich developed a view of sexual satisfaction which went much deeper that the ordinary one. he argued that full (body) orgasm and the accompanying release of body mind tension, is only possible if we have already worked through much of our bodily and psychological resistance against surrendering to your own impulses.
Exploring this resistance to surrender leads us into the whole array of childhood relationships, and the many ways in which surrender and opened can come to seem impossibly dangerous. reich suggested that unexpressed feelings and undischarged anxieties are bound into the structure of the body mind though pattens of muscular tension – what he called armouring, which appears equally on a somatic level, “Muscular armouring” and on a psychological level “character armouring”. For Reich “every muscular rigidity contains the history and meaning of its origin” and that history and meaning can be recovered through therapy.
