    Event description

    "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."

      Rumi

      Dhamma Dance

      Dhamma Dance weaves together authentic movement and meditation, blending Eastern philosophies with Western dance therapy.

      Over three weeks, this course aims to enhance your ability to cultivate kindness, find stability in uncertain times, and foster a sense of calm and ease in daily life. 

      Course details

      Each week explores a different theme inspired by the Buddha's teachings and is divided into movement and stillness practices.

      Authentic movement enables you to tune into your body's natural, intuitive impulse to move and allows you to enquire into your deeper, embodied wisdom through individual and group exploration.

      Guided sitting meditation practice deepens your practice of listening, observing, and connecting with your moment-by-moment experience of life.  

      The two polarities of moving and sitting meditation together mirror the dance of life and support cultivation of well-being and balance.
