Let's dance into the spring at the third Online Edition of the Conscious Dance Festival.
This time we have curated a totally new program so every time you participate you get to meet new facilitators, musicians and approaches to conscious movement.
As long as the magical (physical) places where we meet to heal through dance and meditation remain closed, we will keep bringing the Conscious Dance Festival to your living room as a monthly series of short online versions. Now more than ever we need to dance and celebrate life, as this helps us to find ground under our feet, get in touch with ourselves, and light a spark in our hearts.
This April 18 we will open again the cyber doors for you to experience and discover different approaches to conscious movement, offered by a group of fabulous and very experienced facilitators whom we have carefully selected to join us in this upcoming online edition.
This is a unique opportunity for you to gain an understanding of your own experience of how movement and dance can bring you closer to yourself, and how your life can be filled with deeper presence to cope differently with challenges that arise.
No previous dance experience required. All bodies and levels are welcome.
Our facilitators are certified, innovated and passionated conscious dance lovers who after many years of own personal growth with different masters and teachers, have as well gather years of
experience facilitating internationally.
They will be presenting different approaches as 5 Rhythms, Open Floor, Gaga Movement Language, Sufi Whirling, Guided Active Meditations, Rio Abierto, Movement Medicine, Soul Motion, Biodanza, Voice and Movement, among many others. And to support the atmosphere we also invite musicians to play live music from different places around the world.
All sessions are interactive and experiential.

"Tears in my eyes, a big smile on my face and new friends by my hands - let me call these the beautiful side effects of a weekend full of movement and stillness, rich in sound and in silence. Within and beyond all of that there had been an unspoken invitation. An invitation to meet myself. To explore who I am just a little bit more. This experience, in a way, has brought me back home - back into my heart. For that I am very grateful." Omid Mohadjeri
