What you will learn…
This 24-Day Intensive Facilitator Training is a high-impact, super fun, deep dive into dance, movement meditation, space holding, nature, DJ training, embodied leadership tools and resources, personal business development, and community building.
As you dive into the core curriculum of Dancing Freedom you’ll learn the fundamentals of the practice through your own embodied experience. You dive into the Dancing Freedom practice, the energetic and personal empowerment tools needed to facilitate and guide others, and the “big picture” of spiritual, emotional and physical transformation possible for you and your communities through dance and conscious movement practices. You get a comprehensive experience, a broad and powerful leadership toolbox, and a total holographic understanding and working map for your own leadership. The Dancing Freedom Facilitator Training and Soul Initiation is a modern day “Embodied Mystery School”.
“I came into this training knowing that I wanted to facilitate dance, but lacking a form that I trusted, and also not thinking of myself as qualified. I came out of this training with an experiential knowing of Dancing Freedom, feeling qualified to teach, and with a wealth of gifts I never could have anticipated. I’ve gone from waiting to live my passion, to living it. All-in-all, it was better than imagined.”
“For the first time in my life I feel that I have the possibility and the inner and outer tools, to start sharing what I truly treasure and believe in with my community: a dimension of embodied awakening where authenticity, growth, connection, love, compassion, full expression of body*mind*soul, joy and celebration, prayer, nourishment, co-creation, creativity, aliveness and freedom can happen. I feel more adult and more ready to take action and responsibility, I feel a readiness (which includes embracing my fears and my vulnerability) to step into the bigger me.”
