‘As we become the Hollow Bone, we align in resonance with the earth and become the instruments and channels for a new way.‘

An embodied spiritual dance practice
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 this potent practice and modern day ceremony for transforming lives into your community.
Dance is one of the simplest, most accessible and delightful ways to help people wake up to who they are, to connect intimately with themselves and others, to reunite with the earth and nature, and to heal personal and collective pain and trauma.
The world is ready for dance. People from all walks of life are discovering conscious movement as a fun, effective spiritual and fitness practice. It’s an excellent way to expand your personal toolbox while doing what you love.
Dancing Freedom™ is a way of life. Through the body, the practice invites alignment with what is alive and moving in & around you – your feelings and emotions, your soul, your purpose, your community, nature, All of Your Relations and Source.
We practice meeting and responding to change, challenge, the heights of ecstasy, the depths of grief and vulnerability with authenticity and grace. Thus, we empower our capacity to fully LOVE and vibrantly LIVE. Our liberation is found by dancing deeper into our lives.
Dancing Freedom™ is a practical, adaptable practice and toolbox that can be used as a stand-alone offering or embedded within other offerings, events, institutions, organisations and curriculum. We offer a set of embodied tools and a mapping of universal principles that effectively support awakening, healthy intimacy, soul empowerment, vibrant health and deeper earth connection for people from all walks of life.
Becoming a facilitator is an invitation to step into your liberated, luminous, mature and deeply skilled leadership to be an agent of change and creation in the world.
EMBODIMENT | VISION | MASTERY| EMPOWERMENT
There are four modules embedded within our full immersion training:
EMBODIMENT gives you a lived experience of the essential practice;
VISION is an invitation to receive the voice of your soul through connection with the heart of nature;
MASTERY gives you the essential tools to work with archetype & ceremony, to set and hold space and create a safe container for transformation;
EMPOWERMENT supports you to embody your soul purpose and to effectively bring this practice into the world as your vocation.
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: Gathering in Circle, the Elemental Wave, the Harvest and the Inner Dance + ways to innovate on and modify the practice for different settings and intentions. You get to know what the practice is by doing it, by being initiated into the elemental map that is the foundation of our practice and how to work with the ceremony of movement as medicine.

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.
