Tantric Belly Dance at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, 2015

11295862_10152910903785885_5795732284986331035_nThe Temple of Consciousness invited me back to teach my Tantric‬ Belly dance workshop at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival again this year.  This time I taught about hundred people, none of whom had been to one of my classes before!  Most were under 30 yrs old and some of them were men.  It was the first morning of the Festival so everyone was still fairly normal.  But then, that all changed when we had a blast together!  The workshop got them in their bodies dancing, smiling and in a high vibration space….

Extra time at the workshop  gave us a rare treat.  After a communication mix up… thank you Mercury retrograde… I ended up with an extra 10 minutes to fill.   Intuitively I had a sense to have the last witness dance for the MEN in the room. They were so powerful and into it, that the women present had to jump up and dance with them.  They blew us all away.  See a short Iphone VIDEO snippet here….

After that everyone looked at me in disbelief…we had raised the roof!  Then we sat and set intentions together to make beautiful heart aligned connections all weekend.  And I suspect they did.

The workshop is mentioned in Wild Spice Mag:

and then I performed too!

Tantric Belly Dance and DJ Dragon Fly at the ‘Temple Of Consciousness’

JKDJDI was paired up with well loved DJ, DJ Dragonfly.  It was a cool challenge to dance Tantric Belly Dance moves to deep thumpy bass music, intertwined with middle eastern sounds.  I counterpointed the strong drums with lyrical snakey moves.
Meditating before the set helped me with Stagefright.  Once I was out on stage though, it was fun an easy :).  And doing Tantric Breathing while performing made the performance very intuitive and full of shakti (feminine presence).

I met a fellow dancer at a gatheiring  a week later and she thanked me for being the highlight of her plant medicine journey that night!
