Cacao Ecstatic Dance with Shaktipat
In the beautiful deep belly of our pirate ship in växjö, Sweden, you are invited to dance your own dance, find your bliss in moments of freedom and joy through movement and connection with yourself and others. Allow the music to take you on a magical journey.
We welcome everybody from diverse cultural backgrounds, gender identities, all ages , size, shape and colour.
Ecstatic Dance is a conscious movement practice that invites people to drop out of their minds and into their bodies to unwind and open to inner wisdom. Dance, Music and Cacao Medicine are the center point of these ceremonies catalyzing ecstatic states, where conscious mind limitations dissolve, opening the doors to the vast subconscious intelligence. It is an opportunity to connect deeply with self and others in fun ways words cannot express. A gracious experience to meet yourself as you are and open a space where you can see beyond who you think you are… It’s about you, freedom, joy and honesty.
For thousands of years, cacao has been celebrated as a food of the gods. Together we will drink a cacao elixir, giving ourselves the opportunity to enter into the stillness and wisdom of our being. This journey will offer a space to develop self-awareness, be moved by deep emotions, expand your intuitive awareness and align your actions with your intentions.
Shaktipat is a holistic system for awakening and guiding the Kundalini energy to rise. The attunement sets a chain reaction in flowering of consciousness. It clears blocks which limit our emotional, mental and energetic perception. This dissolves conditioning of the bodymind through spontaneous inner Yoga, leading to Enlightenment and Self-Realization.
