Blissdance Celebration 9 August 2008

Hello dancing beloveds,

I am using this year's Woman's Day for a dance celebration that has been long in the coming - three hours of dance, with an emphasis on that part of the dance that takes us all into deepest bliss - the touch of the feminine inside. The dance is open to all - men and women, new ones and old timers. Let's celebrate and bliss out on the flow of the feminine inside us all!

Blissdance Celebration
Open to all
Saturday 9 August 10am - 1pm
The Forge, 12 Windsor Rd Kalk Bay

Blissdance* is an expression of Tantra in motion - a deep, and blissful exploration of your body in relation to self and existence, sexuality and the heart. I am using Women's day to offer you what several dancers have asked for - an opportunity to sink even deeper into the dance, and to flow even further into the bliss of connectedness, flowing into timelessness.

Central to Blissdance are the qualities of the feminine that create beauty in us all: receptivity, responsiveness, relaxation, tenderness, sensitivity, creativity. These will be the focus of the dance - including a long-long dance of fluidity.

Rumi says:

No better love than love with no object
No more satisfying work than work with no purpose.

If you could give up tricks and cleverness,
That would be the cleverest trick!

So, let's give up the tricks and cleverness that we devise around our hearts, and just flow into the river of love without object - why not?

Cost R250 pp. Please book by Friday 1 August.

Bring a bottle of water to drink

From me to you with love

* Blissdance was inspired by Biodanza (see, a system in which I am trained, as a contribution to what has unfolded for me in Tantra, the awareness practice that I teach (see

Blissdance Open Classes

Blissdance is an expression of Tantra, the art of aware sexuality. Through guided but free movement and dance, we explore awareness in the body - following our own authentic impulse, as it rises from within, meeting space, the other, existence. We explore love, intimacy, and all the varying states of being that happen in existence. Tantra is a practice of non-duality - making nothing bad, saying 'yes' to all as that which is. And so we can dance our jealousy as fully as our pure passion, our anger and possessiveness as much as our tenderness and our silence.

The dance is open to all who are on a journey of awareness. No experience needed, and you are welcome to come on your own.

Blissdance is influenced by Biodanza (see in which I am trained. It also draws from many other awareness and body practices that feed into my Tantra work.

Blissdance classes are open at the moment, so newcomers and old timers are welcome to drop in any time. Details as follows:
