Dance for the Solstice
Shamanic Awakening Dance

I have been sharing Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ in New Zealand for the many years and out of this I have developed my own form of Dance that speaks to me more deeply and that  the people  that dance with me have preferred.  I call this Shamanic Awakening Dance.


I am passionate about this dance method and how it can connect people more deeply to their body, to their spirit and to the oneness of the universe.


This dance practice incorporates movement to luscious rhythms, meditation and powerful breathing techniques. If you love to dance this is one of the most effective and fun ways I have found to be in my body and to fully feel and express myself.


Shamanic Awakening Dance is practice of dance session that will take you deep into your inner self - to observe and bring to presence to the energies (feelings, sensations, thoughts) that arise within you.  Whatever awakens is accepted with an open heart. This is a powerful trans-formative process that as we soften and witness without judging allows our true radiant nature to shine through. As tensions and resistance are released we can experience joy, freedom and bliss.

It is only about you!  You can truly dance as if no one was watching.  You can let go of the shame, the judgments about getting it right and looking good and just move to the music.

There are no steps there is no right or wrong way to move it is about listening to your body and your heart and embracing whatever that is.


Awakening Dance has its roots in the techniques of Osho and was developed by Amoda who wrote “Dance your Prayers – A Guide to the experience of Ecstatic Trance Dance”.  She also draws on her experience of Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythm work and shares her words “The more you dance, the more you sweat, the more you sweat the more you pray. The more you pray the closer you come to ecstasy.”
