2018 May 1-6 Healing Dance 2 with Alexander George in Ubud, Bali

This class is 50 hours Tuesday - Sunday in Ubud, Bali... It is taught in English ... Contact: Michael Hallock ...

Healing Dance II asks the question, “How do we earn trust and gain access to the body at the beginning of a session?” The answer it provides lies in the trance-inducing Back Waves and in our quality of touch. In this training we continue the study of spatial mandalas beyond the waves of Healing Dance I into the spiral, the eight and the spiral eight. Healing Dance II also focuses strongly on bodywork. It offers a toolbox replete with massage techniques and stretches integrated into the flow of movement. The course delivers the fullness of Healing Dance's surface repertoire with an entirely new set of mini-sequences including Seaweed II, The Starfish, Adonis Waves, Arm Waves, and Klimt. Healing Dance II carries further the emphasis on Relating and Mirroring by which students hone the all important art of responding to the kinetic and feeling states of their receivers. A written and photo manual are provided and a DVD of the sequence is made available.
