Weekend Workshop A JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF TRANCE, Philippe Lenaif (Belgium)
Datum a čas: 16.03.2018 - 18.03.2018 0:00
Dancing in a state of trance helps to free the soul from the prison of the ego. Allows us to connect with the divine within, makes us experience other dimensions of oneself.Â The trance puts us in contact with dimensions of ourselves which pulsate with an energy as beneficial as life-giving, as well as a possibility of going past our limitative identifications.
The word trance comes, etymologically, from the Latin term „transire“, transit, transport, pass from one state to another. Its usual meaning is „change of state of consciousness“. The phrases „falling into a trance“ and „going into a trance“ refer to a psycho-physiological mechanism in which the person gives herself over to certain external or internal conditions to enter a different state of consciousness.
The practices of trance are universal and correspond „simply“ to a natural modality of functioning of our consciousness and our nervous system. Trance states are always accompanied by cenesthetic and neurovegetative changes. So, trance rhymes with traveling through altered states of consciousness which can be light or deep, soft or intense, peaceful or vital, confident or frightful…..
In the secure environment of Biodanza, we can experience various forms of trances and savor all the benefits, as long as the dancer feels confident and surrenders to the call of his soul. During this workshop, we will explore some great types of trances, some subtle and some deeper.
