Event Details

Tribal Trance Dance: Awakening – Ecstatic Dance + Cacao + Trance Dance

A beautiful evening including Cacao Ceremony, Blindfolded Trance Dance Ritual, Heart Songs and Sacred Chants with Live music from Ravi Ji (Koratone), Master Senegalese Drummer-Mohamed Gueye, and Seth (Urubu)

Through the use of a blindfold, raw ceremonial cacao, a transforming breathing technique and dynamic rhythms, percussion and ecstatic movements, we enter into the consciousness of our body, to feel, to express, to come home… to be completely Alive!

The Invitation

Trance Dance is an invitation into deep liberation, driven by our breath, our intentions, and energy, and not controlled by our conditioned mind, we let go. – Our spirit can flow, liberating itself into the dance… and then the ecstasy happens…

Natural body movements and intuitive expressive dance are simply forms of an ancient pre-verbal language. It is an expression of intelligence of our creative unconscious. Honouring the evolutionary intelligence encoded in our cells!

“We all seek something to complete us and give us a feeling of fullness and meaning in our lives … – The answer is inside us!

We will open our ceremony and set our intentions with ceremonial grade cacao, from Peru. This rich velvety elixir is a doorway to the heart, celebrated and honoured by the Incas, Aztecs, Mayans and in many ancient traditions. Cacao, chocolate in its purest form, is a heart opening & totally natural NON-psychedelic medicine, containing an abundance of nutritional goodness & natural happy chemicals.

Facilitated by Seth Newman

My purpose is to facilitate rituals that empower the whole human being through dance and music. Like Bioenergetics and other somatic processes, for me, Trance Dance was another door to inner discovery and transformation. I have always been passionate about contemporary forms of music and dance that reclaim our vital energy and our creative potential. I believe that “surrender to life” is synonymous, with our “surrender to the body”. Letting go to the natural flow that moves through us. It is through “the flow experience” that we express, feel and find ourselves, without being connected to “flow” nothing creative happens.

The Trance Dance: Awakening ritual is an ecstatic, creative process that returns us to the consciousness of the body and reclaims our Soul. For those who want to immerse themselves and explore their full potential, body, heart & soul!

Give yourself to the dance of life! The Trance Dance: Awakening ritual invites you to have a direct experience of freedom, truth and power, with awareness. A drug-free ecstasy!
