Dancemeditation™ is a unique, integrated, embodied meditation system for self-discovery, healing, & evolution. Through the cultivation of embodied awareness and present-ness, we explore relationships between self-&-other, self-&-cosmos, self-with-Self, and self-to-the Divine Eternal, and ultimately dissolve relationship into non-duality, into One-ness. Dancemeditation™ links you to the deepest roots of human quest for spiritual understanding and Truth.
Dancemeditation™ proposes that your body is spiritual intelligence. Training focuses on listening to the body with curiosity and respect. The practices develop trust and adeptness in this receptive process.

Dancemeditation™ synthesizes three large bodies of work: Art, Somatics, and Dervish mysticism. The materials resourced provide doorways and ignition points to embodied awakening and growth. We use a wide variety of breathing and movement techniques (see Basic Practices for a few examples) within a primarily non-verbal study environment to help us drop out of an over-active, distracted mind into intuitive embodiment. Inner & outer witnessing are balanced.
Who is Dancemeditation For?
This Path calls to women and men seeking self-knowledge, healing, and growth through the deep truth of the body. More
Moving from the center of Center, opening the subtlety beneath the Apparent, we feel a sense of Belonging. We come to a quiet mind and an awake heart. Here is spiritual clarity.
