Shakti Dance Academy's Highlights

Sustaining the Spirit of Shakti in the Dance of Life
Level 2 - 11/17 August 2019
Gallese Retreat - Swara Rasa Lila

You are warmly invited to immerse yourself in the ever-evolving Teachings of Shakti Dance® with Sara Avtar ~ connecting, cross-pollinating and recharging with our international Sangat of Teachers for this year's Level 2: Swara Rasa Lila

A playful encounter of great spiritual depth!
This year we focus on the transformative effect of Mantric Choreographies in geometrical group constellations.

We will unite, sing and move together as One. In our group constellated movement, we will embody and unlock enlightened states encoded in a few carefully chosen mantras. Our offerings, will be enhanced by the musical sentiment of the original Raags, in which the mantras were composed.

The geometry of the movements, dance steps and constellations will be designed to, capture, reflect, express and enhance the sonic patterns encoded in the sound current of the sacred mantras.

Repeating with awareness the geometric patterns of sound and movement (jaapa), with precise sonic and spatial relationships, we weave together an atmosphere highly charged with Sacred Presence ~ Swara: Vortices of Light, realigning and harmonising our conditioned consciousness to coherence and transparency. This attunement will enable the peaceful flow of our true nature, Shanta Rasa ~ Blissful Being.

After each Mantric Choreography session, we will take time to integrate the effects, giving space for the Light of Being to shine with radiance in still, silent meditation. Equal duration will be dedicated to Silent Meditation as to each Mantric Choreography.

For 3 full days of the 6-day retreat we will immerse ourselves, alternating between Mantric Choreographies and Silent Meditation, while keeping silence in the breaks - that the experience may distill into deep communion with the Source.

On the last day we will gradually return to verbal communication and celebrate in united mind and heart the Sacred Play (Swara Rasa Lila) we have shared - that our mergence of Creative Spirit may continue to guide our way on…

Mere Ram Celestial Communication ~ 40 Day Practice!
Also new to the Reserved Area is this 'Mere Ram' Celestial Communication, by Sara Avtar, to Snatam Kaur's version from her album 'Ras'.

We invite you to join us for this 40 Day Celestial Communication practice - for all Shakti Dance® Teachers! To help us all unite in the Arms of the Beloved - and feel more deeply the cosy subtle connection between us.

Starting Monday June 10th,
Ending Saturday July 22th,

We will practice together this Celestial Communication 'To Connect with the Inner Beloved'. Its rhythmic pulse synchronises us with the flow of life in our environment and circumstance. It nourishes our inner relationship with True Being, giving a relaxed sense of inner support and cosiness... followed by a restful sleep, if practiced in the evening.

We will share our experiences and support each other on the FaceBook Shakti Dance Teachers Group.
If you are not already a member of this Group, please let us know and we will add you.
