You can’t control dance. It’s an act of self-expression – and what that means is that by dancing you’re taking a giant shovel and digging into your guts to see what you are made of.

What is a Trance Dance Ritual?

A Trance Dance Ritual is a 2-3 hour guided program using specific sounds, dynamic rhythms, continuous breath patterns and sensory deprivation as a technique to induce a moving trance.

Why should I take this type of training?

If you work with people in any modality where consciousness is altered (breath work, dream work, dance, deep massage) then learning about altered states of consciousness and trance will enhance your capacity to guide individuals towards positive outcomes. Trance Dance is a well-developed and thorough approach to exploring deep structural and psychological issues that traditional forms of therapy find difficult to access. In fact traditional healers and therapist have been using Trance Dance as an adjunct to their primary transformation technique. Trance Dance works well alone and also as a companion to other modalities of therapy and healing.
