Primal Dance Medicine

DROPPING OUT OF THE MIND AND INTO THE BODY GIFTS US THE EXPERIENCE OF OUR REMEMBRANCE.

Primal Dance Medicine has become one of the foundations of my practice, providing a transformative space where I embrace embodied exploration. Through my ongoing practice over the years, I curated a collection of playlists that serve as gateways to unlock the power and wisdom held within the body. Each playlist offers a unique journey, lovingly crafted to guide you through the depths of your emotions and into a state of open self-discovery.

The selection of music invites you to surrender to the rhythms, melodies, and beats, allowing your body to become a vessel for expression and release. If you feel guided to immerse yourself in the raw and authentic expression of your being through a dance journey, I invite you to use the created playlist, otherwise select a piece of music that feels good for you to journey with.

As you dance, allow yourself to create spaciousness within your heart, to fully open and receive the energy that flows within you. Invite your womb and yoni to expand, welcoming the depths of your wild feminine nature. Find liberation, as you move with the rhythm of your own unique essence. Breathe in this energy, allowing it to permeate every fibre of your being. Let it wash over your soul, embracing its potency and allowing it to become a portal to your own magic.

Here is a suggested pathway to initiate your dance medicine journey:

1. Select a playlist that resonates with your intention.
2. Find a comfortable and quiet space where you can be undisturbed.
3. Put on the music and let it fill the space around you.
4. Lie on the ground and close your eyes, allowing yourself to fully relax.
5. Take slow, deep breaths, consciously releasing any tension or stress.
6. Direct your attention to your body and set the intention by speaking softly, saying, "I ask my body to help me heal, release and awaken."
7. Allow the music to guide you and surrender to its rhythms and melodies.
8. As you lie there, let the music move through you, awakening sensations, emotions, and energies within.
9. Be present with whatever arises, without judgment or expectation, simply allowing the experience to unfold.
10. When you feel ready, gently open your eyes and slowly rise to a standing position.

11. Begin to move your body in any way that feels natural and authentic to you. Let your body lead the dance, expressing itself freely and intuitively.
12. Engage with the music, allowing it to guide your movements and ignite your inner fire.
13. Release any inhibitions and surrender to the flow of your body's wisdom and creativity.
14. Continue dancing for as long as you desire, allowing the music to carry you through the journey of self-discovery.
15. When you feel complete, take a few moments to ground yourself, expressing gratitude for the experience.
16. Reflect on any insights or sensations that arose during the dance, and consider journaling or expressing them in a creative way.
