In this retreat you will make an inner journey, in a series of trance dances, to energize different aspects of your being. Your path of discovery will be Kundalini, and you will activate each Chakra along the way. These daily trance dances will be embedded in a larger program of meditation-, body-, breath- and soundwork.
