Curriculum

Dancing Freedom is an embodied spiritual practice you can work with for the rest of your life.  Our curriculum is designed to support optimal learning, depth of embodiment, and to give you the tools and support you need to take the practice to your community.

There are four modules embedded within in our immersion training: EMBODIMENT gives you the essential practice; EMPOWERMENT supports you to embody your soul purpose and to effectively bring this into the world as your business; VISION is an invitation to receive the voice of your soul through connection with the heart of nature; MASTERY details soul anatomy and gives you the essential energetic tools to set and hold space, work with energy and archetype, and create a safe container for transformation and authenticity.

EMBODIMENT– The Essential Practice

In Embodiment, we open personal and collective pathways for being fully embodied, fully in your power and fully free. You learn the basic template of the Dancing Freedom Practice: Circling, the Elemental Wave, the Harvest and the Inner Dance + ways to innovate on and modify that practice for different settings and intentions.   You get to know what the practice is, how to put a practice together, and how to work with movement as medicine. 

Learn:

  • The practice by doing it
  • The Outer Elemental Wave
  • The Inner Dance
  • The Harvest:  receiving direct guidance from the body, heart and higher self
  • How the practice works with the elements as allies
  • How to combine ecstatic, somatic, shamanic and expressive intelligence to create an optimal experience for students
  • Mindfullness as a moving meditation
  • How to use music, intention and symbol to create powerful ritual
  • “Being a conscious DJ” ~ How to create magic with your own playlists

EMPOWERMENT – Get Your Life On Purpose

In empowerment, we dive deep into soul purpose & conscious business creation.  Regardless of how much work you have or have not done on these things, you will receive an opportunity to embody your Path more deeply, powerfully and in greater integrity with the person you are becoming through your own prayers.  Discover:

  • Your core values
  • The deeper face of your passion
  • Unconscious obstacles – and remove them
  • Confidence, clarity and natural authority arising from your soul’s truth
  • How to create partnerships and collaborations that make everything easier and more fun
  • A pathway for your business that makes sense to your body and your heart
  • Better ways to manage your time and energy
  • A better, more compelling story for your life and leadership

VISION – Nature & Soul Immersion

Vision is a time of initiation to receive the voice of your soul through immersion in nature and non-ordinary ceremony (usually sweat lodge ceremony, but variable dependent upon where trainings are offered, weather and other cultural factors).  It is a time to be in direct relationship with the animate intelligence(s) of the universe – a dance of soul and spirit.  Every aspect of Nature is soul, has soul, and is an expression of and a reflection of soul.  In taking this time, you will receive subtle, vibrant reflections of your highest gifts and knowing, discover how your life is an expression of larger patterns, and innovate ways in which to design your life in integrity with those patterns.  And, you become better able to hear what the world is calling from you.  VISION invites you to align your life with LIFE.  You will:

  • Make a Good Prayer for Yourself (and learn more about the ancient art of prayer)
  • Get naked to who you are as a human being in the Circle of All Beings
  • Open to direct connection with your ancestors and soul lineages
  • Learn what it means to Live in a Good Way
  • You may receive an authentic Vision for your life
  • Integrate this time with a potent cacao heart circle

MASTERY – Soul Anatomy, Energy, Intention & Safety

Mastery is not a destination – it’s a set of capacities to create, share and respond to any situation with grace, power, authenticity and love.  It is a toolbox for resiliency and leadership. This module of the training gives you the “behind the scenes” tools for setting space, creating safety, working with shadow and light, and supporting deep emotional and spiritual transformation, empowerment and healing for yourself and your students.

Expand your capacity to discern, your tolerance for the unknown, your embrace of the shadow, your ability to be and act as love, and your continuous practice of choice. Learn to dance your life in accordance with Universal Law and develop your natural human and spiritual gifts, thus anchoring graceful tools for real-world success and thriving. Dance the Five Fields of Consciousness: Instinct, Emotion, Empathy, Intuition and Psychic to nurture and activate your highest potential – individually and collectively. Choose the path of Mastery – a dance where you, as an individual, fully live your unique gifts -and a dance where you, as a leader, gently but firmly steward the evolution of conscious living through conscious language, conscious music, conscious movement, conscious stillness and conscious community.
