Trancedance Facilitator Training: Central Themes

Experiential Learning and Growing

Central throughout this intensive training program, is your personal growth. You will have a lot of experience with trancedancing, and will study how to work with trance, music, rituals, meditation and processes of transformation. We also offer a practical and theoretical framework, through which you can learn how to facilitate a trancedance ritual, using your own inspiration and qualities.

Teacher training in 2 modules

Between the first intensive module of one week, and the second midweek module, there is several months of space. We deliberately choose for a program with sufficient space in between the modules, so that experience and knowledge can be integrated, before we conclude the learning process together at the end.

 

Central Themes

 

A safe and sacred space

sacred spaceFacilitating the trance dance experience

WWhen you surrender to the dance, and allow yourself to be moved from the wisdom and true nature of your body, moments of insights, growth and healing can occur spontaneously. You learn how to create a safe environment in which to allow such processes.

Layers of consciousness

BewusstseinExploring body and mind

In addition to in-depth experience with trancedance, you will get acquainted with other forms of trance- and bodywork. You are also given the opportunity to explore the impact of universal, traditional and contemporary rituals.

Breath

Breath is a powerful tool to enhance the flow of lifeforce within you. In many spiritual traditions breathing techniques have an important place. We will work with different types of breathing.

Sacred Darkness

DunkelheitWorking with blindfolds and darkness

In most of our trancedances, all dancers are blindfolded for one- to two hours at a time, which allows for surrender, inspiration and transformation. In this training you will experience the effect of ritual darkness more profoundly.

The archetype of the Shaman

Archetyp-des-SchamanenMastering intentions and awareness

A shaman is a spiritual expert, who goes into a trance in order to improve his own quality of life, and that of others and of the community as a whole. All cultures on the planet have some form of shamanism in their roots. You get the chance to get in touch with the archetype of the shaman, and will develop skills that contribute to growth and healing.

Creating a Musical Journey

Music is the vehicle the shaman uses to travel. The rhythms and melodies take the dancer on a journey full of inspiration and adventure. You get the chance to experiment with making organic sounds with simple instruments, as well as with contemporary technological means.

Guides, Ancestors and Poweranimals

During trance journeys we can make alliances with guides, teachers and ancestors in the spirit world. Often these guides present themselves in typical earthly forms, such as animals. You get the chance to develop a personal relationship with your guides.

Becoming Whole again

When we have suffered mild or severe trauma, we lose some or part of our uninhibited (?) nature: the integrity of our soul is deeply wounded/damaged/effected. We will explore the idea of ‘loss of soul’ and will perform rituals for becoming whole again.

Science and spirituality
