Inner Dance is a journey to the self through the self. It is not a dance in the traditional sense, but a meditative journey and expression of spirit. You will be guided into meditation, while further music and sounds will be used to support the process of quietly going inwards to experience that which rises up from within. It is a process of remembering how to dream awake, while allowing you to peel away layers of fear and experience your true self in a place of trust.
**There is no right or wrong way to do this process, and anything goes! All you need to do is lay down, get comfy, close your eyes and trust. Some people allow their bodies to move, make sounds, or experience visuals, etc.**
Inner Dance is rooted in an ancient trance healing from the Philippines and was discovered by Pi Villaraza. It is described as "the intuitive remembrance of the true self through heightened inner awareness of bodies, minds and emotions as Energy." Pi himself describes it as "the intellectualizing of the spirit, the spiritualizing of the mind, the letting go of the self, the experience of raw energy coursing through the body".
Our guide, Danielle MacGregor Yoga, traveled to the Philippines to learn this powerful method of healing and has brought it back to Seattle to share with her community. This kind of experience is better felt than explained, so join us to try it out for yourself!
