ECSTATIC AWAKENING DANCE

The Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ is an Energy Experience designed to:

  • Release stress and energize the body;
  • Free you from emotional baggage by moving stuck energy;
  • Transcend the chatter of small mind and bring you into the Presence of Now;
  • Awaken your heart to self-acceptance and self-love;
  • Connect you to the Divine Oneness of your true nature and All That Is.

There are 3 or 5 stages, depending on whether you are practicing the meditation alone or in a group environment:

1. PREPARATION

This is the BODY WARM-UP (approx. 15-20 minutes) – a gentle awakening of the body parts using breath, awareness, movement and music. We start at the soles of the feet and work our way to the crown of the head.

Every part of the body tells a story and in this warm-up we allow fluid movements and rhythmical breath to move stuck energy and to prepare us physically and mentally for the next phase of the class.

 

Please Note: If you are doing this method alone, then there is no need for this stage, but if you are teaching a class then this is a vital preparation.

2. AWAKENING LIFE FORCE

This is the SHAKE (15 minutes) – this is perhaps the most important stage as it ignites the life-force for the transformative process to begin. Here we allow the body to shake and tremble all over.

 

With eyes closed and breath deep and relaxed, the shake is based on Osho’s Kundalini Meditation.

 

It also has its roots in an ancient form of Chi Kung that uses shaking to open blocked energy-meridians. It’s purpose is to shake off stress and tension and to awaken our life-force which is often “sleepy”. The effect is refreshing, energizing and balancing.

 

It is also a preparation on physical, emotional and mental levels for the deeper let-go of the next stage.

3. LET GO

This is known as the BREATH OF FIRE DANCE or simply the ENERGY DANCE (approx. 45 mins) – this is the main part of the method and is done with the eyes closed. In this phase, we are ready to go deeper and to surrender to the dance.

 

We ignite the letting-go process with a simple Breathing technique called the Breath of Fire. This section can also be done with a simple Circular Breathing technique. Both of these breathing techniques oxygenate the body and brain so that we are fully energised, switch off the rational “every day” thinking mind and facilitate a “whole-brain” activity which means we access deeper levels of being through the dance. The repetitive rhythms of the breath and the music also enhance synchronised brain activity so that we experience expanded consciousness states.

 

What this means:
  • Stuck physical energy and emotions can surface easily to be safely released;
  • Relief from everyday worries and the general chatter of the mind;
  • Clarity of thinking from a higher perspective;
  • Internal visions, insights and inspirations that can help us move forwards in our lives;
  • A sense of self-empowerment;
  • A sense of calm, peace, joy and bliss;
  • A warm open-hearted state in which you feel connected and whole.
  • A connection with the Divine/Spirit, a sense of Oneness and Wonder;
  • An experience of ecstasy and liberation.

4. STILLNESS

This is the complete STOP! – when the music stops, so does the dance and you simply drop to the ground in silence and stillness to allow the integration of energies and a deep relaxation.

 

This is an absolutely vital stage!

5. GROUNDING

This is the HEAVEN & EARTH MEDITATION – now we complete the process with a simple guided visualisation to ground ourselves and come back to our everyday lives in a place of peace, clarity and self-love.

 

Please Note: This stage is only necessary if you are teaching a class.
