“The Physical Body as an ally: Awakening Personal Power

A Dance Journey by Stefania Ammirata

A Dance Journey is a doorway into our unconscious, it creates a bridge between our inner life and vision, and our outer expression into the world of matter. With the body as an Ally, we are going to have access to our physical, emotional and mental self, opening up to the “missing parts” of our being. We are going to awaken and store personal power, noticing body wisdom, feelings and the direction of energy and we are going to follow them to reconnect to our Real Self and its true intent. Through movement, breath and voice explorations and the use of images, we are going to allow ourselves “to be danced” from our inner power.

About Stefania:
Stefania Ammirata is a dance artist, somatic educator, OSF certified teacher, Bach Flower Remedies practitioner and Bio-resonance therapist.

A conversation with your Heart

Milou van Dormolen

A conversation with your heart. If your heart could speak, what would it say? And what would you ask your heart? This yoga-meditation has its focus on the connection with your heart. The yoga exercises are specifically chosen for they open up your heart and create space to allow yourself to listen. This way you get a chance to ask questions in your own way and discover what is truly important for you.

About Milou:
My name is Milou van Dormolen. I have a practice for hypnotherapy in Enschede. As a hypnnotherapist I work with the subconscious, because I trust we all have our own answers within ourselves. Sometimes we just need a guide to introduce us to our inner guide. Besides my practice I work with with yogi friends and we organize meditationworkshops, trancedance workshops, yoga-meditation retreats and transforming breath sessions.

BioDanza

Ivenes Braam

Voor mij is het duidelijk dat in 2017 ruimte is gekomen voor samenwerking en voor groene initiatieven. Gemeente Dalfsen die ja zegt tegen het Levende Dorp Festival; Samen bouwen, samen creëren en dit keer met eerbied voor Moeder Aarde en haar natuurlijke bronnen. Minder aardolie en meer vrije energie initiatieven!
Een Quantum Leap in de tijd. Ik spring graag mee.

Zelf geef ik zaterdagochtend een workshop Biodanza, om naast onze spierkracht en intellect, ook onze vreugde in het leven met elkaar te delen. Om onze harten en dromen met elkaar te verbinden in de dans.

Zeventien jaar geleden brak voor mij de hemel een stukje open; ik ontdekte voor het eerst Biodanza. Ik deed toen voor het eerst mee met een workshop en was diep geraakt door de prachtige muziek, maar ook door de oprechte aandacht die men had voor elkaar. De diepe eerbied voor het leven en het grote genoegen om vreugde en emotie met elkaar te kunnen delen. Zelfexpressie te kunnen geven aan wat in me leefde. Ik voelde me als een vis in het water.

Biodanza gaat openlijk in tegen vervreemding van onszelf en van elkaar , gaat in tegen het idee van oorlog en geweld en gaat in tegen de buitensporige overheersing van de instincten door de rede.
Biodanza gaat in tegen de consumptie maatschappij, draaiend op het gevoel van leegte in onszelf , een honger die nooit met nog meer consumptie gestild kan worden. Biodanza komt voort uit een heimwee naar liefde.

Een uitweg uit de collectieve chaos waarin onze maatschappij zich bevind. Biodanza staat voor een andere visie. Ze stelt voor om de oorspronkelijke band te herstellen van de menselijke soort met de gehele natuur en met het universum als kosmisch geheel.
Ze wil een nieuwe manier van samen leven onderzoeken, waarbij onze ongevoeligheid , die mogelijk ingeslapen is, gewekt wordt. De aanwezigheid van iemand vieren en voelen hoe betoverend het is om iemand echt te ontmoeten , is een prachtige mogelijkheid die voor ons open staat. Zo kunnen we ons weer verbonden voelen met de ander en met onszelf. En vandaaruit hebben we een waanzinnige basis om onze eigen kracht te ontwikkelen, ons licht te laten schijnen en onze dromen waar te maken.

Ik hoop jullie te mogen ontmoeten op zaterdag 20 mei om kwart voor 10 ‘s ochtends op de Temple Grounds.

We zullen dansen alleen doen, in 2 tallen, met meerderen en met de hele groep. Actieve dansen en meer ontspannende dansen.
Neem een waterflesje mee en zorg dat je een beetje fris ruikt ;)

Grote groet,
Ivenes Braam

Cacao Ceremony

Earth Tribe

We are a community and family carrying the name Earth Tribe. We work together to bring people back in contact with Mother Earth, each other and oneself. We create a sacred space for this contact by working with Plant Medicine Ceremonies, Sing- and Musiccircles, energetic practises and Sweatlodges. Our group formed within the many Ceremonies working with Kambo and Ayahuasca ceremonies being guided by our dearest friend and teacher Mauro (medicineman from Brasil) which we have been assisting and organizing for many years. Since then we became a real close and heartfull family that has shared and healed many precious moments in our lives. As individuals we all walk for years the shamanic path and created the foundation in this way what we share as a group, where everyone is fulfilling his or her roll. All the Ceremonies we shared helped us to bring this strong Heart connection we feel into the group so we can lift people into that warm and safe space where all is welcome. Here we realize that being together is actually our biggest Medicine. One Love! Earth Tribe

Dreamflow Concert

Menno & Bianca van den Hout

De helende klanken van het Dreamflow Concert nemen je mee op een innerlijke reis. Klank is grenzeloos, tijdloos en heeft de eigenschap de ziel rechtstreeks te beroeren. Laat de intuïtief en in het moment gespeelde klank en muziek het voertuig zijn om je te verbinden met je essentie, je kern en stap in de tijdloze zone. Deze klankreis heeft een heerlijk ontspannende invloed op lichaam en geest en werkt tot in het diepste van je kern. De staat van ontspanning die je met een Dreamflow Concert kunt ervaren zorgt ervoor dat je zelfgenezende vermogen wordt geactiveerd en dat je daarnaast nog meer een open kanaal voor je creatieve vermogens wordt. Hoe meer je je openstelt, hoe beter het resonantie-effect haar helende werk kan doen. Een ieder haalt er vanzelf uit wat voor hem of haar nodig is. Je lichaam, geest en hoger bewustzijn weten feilloos waar jij op dit moment aan toe bent. Tijdens onze concerten maken we klanken op intuïtieve wijze, we stemmen ons af op onze eigen essentie die samenvalt met dé Essentie en scheppen een klankwereld vanuit de energie van het moment, daarom is ieder Dreamflow Concert dat wij geven telkens weer een nieuwe ervaring.

Everything that you wish to focus your energy on to make it grow. Always you dance HAKA for existence and always you give it ALL!!

“Years ago I was touched by the purity and power of the Maori Culture and HAKA. This started an intense physical and spiritual journey. During this journey I connected deeper with HAKA and the wisdom it holds on many levels. I had different powerful and wise teachers that I respect very much. HAKA is intense, raw and powerful and I would love to share this amazing art with you to experience. This workshop will be an introduction. You can dive deeper into the power of HAKA by joining Emelie Manawa in her HAKA workshops

HeavenEarth Reconnection

Arie Bombarie

Heaven Earth Reconnection is a psycho spiritual movement and dance meditation inspired by shamanic, yogic, taoist and tantric practices. These are led by Arie in a playful and musical way to inspire and educate the participant on how to use certain breath and movement techniques for inner and outer transformation and healing. It is a both a personal and a communal experience which aims to empower the individual from within, and from there allow a reconnection to happen to the other members of the group, and to the forces of our surroundings. We move, shake, dance and breath, exploring our body and energy, allowing the music to guide us through the different stages of the meditation. The experience allows us to let go of our limiting beliefs about ourselves and our reality, our ego. We attain a state of clear mind, emotional well being, physical stamina and spiritual awakening. We allow ourselves to become vulnerable to the self and to the other, respecting our own and other's boundaries. We accept and express the feelings we have inside ourselves, also those which hold us back from who we want to be which can be difficult to face, so we can create the space for what we want to become in our lives. We create space to have feelings of love, joy and appreciation for the self and for the others, and celebrate this moment we share together on our beautiful planet!

About Arie:
My name is Arie, or Arie Bombarie as I have always been called since I was a child every time I acted crazy and unusual. I am an Irish/Belgian artist fascinated by energy healing sciences, both from ancient shamanic, yogic and taoist traditions, but also from new innovative healing methods which are more suitable for the current state of our planet and mind, such as Osho's dynamic meditations. The fasciation for spirituality started seven years ago when I lied in my bed listening to the beautiful voice of Alan Watts, letting my ego pour off the mattress into the universe around. Ever since I have been dedicated to being a healer, finding ways to share blissful feelings of joy and appreciation to others, while also allowing space for the expression of painful emotions. After having followed different courses and practicing different effective and ineffective methods of inner healing, I am sharing what I personally find are the most valuable and suitable of these to the world. Since I was a child I had the gift of hearing beautiful and complex music in my imagination and started playing any instrument I could find, now I have completed a study of music composition, production and sound design at the Hogeschool voor de Kunst Utrecht. I am currently doing research, looking for ways to combine useful spiritual practices with music, technology and the arts in order to make the experience accessible and effective for any one who is interested in inner transformation. During the Heaven Earth Reconnection you can experience the fruit of this research! With endless love!
