Dance has brought together community since time began; documented in ancient temple paintings and carvings, in indigenous tribes and in festivals and gatherings today. It is often used for ceremony and ritual as well as celebration. Unlike other ‘physical activities’ that work on specific body systems, in dance we are a part of the artistic process, as it affects us on a psychological and emotional level. As a shamanic practice it can radically affect us on a spirit and soul level.
Helene has been using dance as a healing tool for over 30 years and this interactive talk will be part anthropological, part scientific and part experiential, as it aims to inform and inspire. Come explore with her how the majestic power of dance affects us on every level of our being. Our knowledge of the mind body landscape is constantly evolving with new discoveries in the neuroscience and quantum world, and there is the opportunity for discussion and to share. Accompanied by a beautiful slide show.
