Good Medicine and Spiritual Practice
Conscious Dance is for you if:
You claim you can’t dance/paint/be creative.
However, you are open and curious to learn something new about yourself.
There is a wave of people in Germany right now who are finding deep joy and discovering their full potential through conscious movement practices. If you are one of them or curious to discover why conscious dance/Conscious Dance is a growing movement, then BienanDanza is for you. Surrounded by the beauty of nature, you can create your own dance in a sacred space and choose from a colorful bouquet of innovative conscious movements and sensations.
BienanDanza dance journeys are guided and yet free. The role of the BienanDanza EmbodiMentor is to accompany, to make you aware and to remind you. The instructions are not meant to be constricting, but to support you in discovering new spaces of development for yourself. The atmosphere is appreciative, inclusive and benevolent.
Why Conscious Dance?
Conscious dance is a body-based way to raise consciousness. More and more people are developing and refining their potential through moving meditations, self-expression and sweat. Under the inspired guidance of the BienanDanza EmbodiMentor, dancers of all shapes and sizes can be guided to listen to the connections between body and mind, explore feelings, express emotions, develop the body’s own resources for living, and enjoy being in the present moment. Conscious dance can empower, create bliss and connection, and has the potential to heal the psyche and the body.
The mental, emotional, spiritual and physical benefits of Conscious Dance can be far-reaching. Conscious Dance is, at its core, about a person’s embodied consciousness and being a home for the soul in its own body as a form of expression.
Conscious Dance can be practiced by anyone, regardless of physical ability, fitness or previous dance experience. There are no steps to learn!
At BienanDanza – on the path to bliss – we practice all three of these states – ecstatic dance, dancing mindfulness, and shamanic trance – to bring the resulting learning into cellular knowing in the present moment. This “becoming whole” of: Body, Mind and Spirit benefits us in our everyday lives.
My guidance nourish from instruction or certification received from the following offerings: Open Floor, Dancing Mindfulness (USA), Ecstatic Dance (USA) Movement Medicine, MiddleEarthMedicine (SA).
BienanDanza is a rich, matriarchal format for dynamic change.
Why we need exercise, not fitness training
Humans are insanely curious, passionate and intelligent creatures. The bodies we find ourselves in have been forged over millions of years of evolution to meet the demands of a harsh and complex natural environment.
Our brains crave this complexity; they are programmed to operate in chaos, find patterns, and learn lessons spontaneously. We’ve been doing this for a long time and have become incredibly adept at creating order in this chaos so that we can better thrive and survive.
Unfortunately, we’ve gone so far as to almost completely eradicate chaos and clutter from our environment. Look around at all the flat surfaces, all the ways you can control your convenience, all the ways you can outsource tasks that were once vital to your ability to live. We’ve systematized things and put all sorts of rules and regulations in place to keep everything running safely and efficiently. And in the process, we’ve lost something important.
Have the courage to feel your own feelings. ~ Corinna Faith Natalie Bornhorst
We have lost a deeply inherent connection to our world through creative and complex movement. We have lost the ability to solve problems creatively with our brains and our bodies in environments that nurture and challenge us in equal measure. We have lost the true meaning of movement, and in its place we have developed a preference for sets and repetitions and long lists of specific exercises to be incorporated into various routines that must be performed X number of times per week and balanced with hours of running in front of the TV.
I encourage everyone to take a moment to consider their relationship to exercise and the role it plays in their lives. Does your practice trigger a sense of creativity and give you a means of self-expression? Does it give you a deep and unquenchable passion for this life? Does it nourish YOU on all levels and lead you to a healthy and sustainable life in connection with friends, family, yourself, community and nature?
Find your own dance, BE in MOVEMENT. Lovingly granting yourself access to the experiences stored in your body. On the path to bliss. Bienandanza.
Easily and playfully gain deep insights into the nature of your being. In the encounter with yourself. Perceive access to your own, so far unimagined, neglected potentials. Whereby dancing can also mean lolling, stretching, alone or with others near the heart of the Neckarstadt. Jumping, bouncing, playful or enjoying slower, in community or on your own. Gently inspired by the trainers, soulful music and the other people in the room.
Embracing your questions in a dancing way, letting things develop their own, quiet, undisturbed way, coming from deep within and not wanting to be pushed or accelerated by anything, bringing everything into MOVEMENT.
- There is no "right" or "wrong" here. Dance as Spiritual Practice and Good Medicine
- WHAT IS CONSCIOUS DANCE? If you love to dance, why not let the fusion of movement and music become your practice of consciousness? And if you don't love to dance, why not practice letting dance become a form of consciousness?
