Introductory Workshop at MBA Venice

Take your beauty UP to a whole new Level at MBA’s First Tantric Belly Dance Workshop!  

What is Tantric Belly Dance?  

Living your life as an extraordinary tale. Each thing in life, from this place, becomes the sacred sensual…. But how do we do this?  When we have to work, pay our bills, drive the kids around and still somehow find time to stay fit?  It feels impossible sometimes to be able to relax and enjoy life.
There is a way and it is fun and simple.  We access our feminine power!  And Tantric Belly Dance is a sexy, fun way to get there.  It is a practice of generating kundalini within our bodies, and then letting that energy inspire our movements.  Then our dance naturally expands our energy field and leaves us feeling free and beautiful.   Any woman can do it, of any fitness level.

Lightning in a Bottle adventure 2015

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….

11351262_10152912887350885_6425788903446532003_nSee how the men became the stars of the workshop below…

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!

Bring friends and loved ones to the show!  Enjoy seeing other dancers strut their stuff!

The Chakras

The chakras are the key to physical health, emotional stability and mental clarity. The chakras are vortexes of moving energy, which stimulate various endocrine glands in the body to secrete hormones into the blood stream. The effects of hormones control our body. They also affect our state of mind.
The chakras purify our energy from the gross, physical plane associated with out primal instincts and basic animal nature; tuning it into a highly refined spiritual plane that connects us with the source of life itself.
When we begin the journey into our chakras we open the way for healing, psychological development and spiritual growth.  As we progress upward through the energy centers, we learn more about who we are and the ideas and attitudes that form our lives.  This system of healing is ancient. It was mentioned in Vedic records and many original cultures embraced an understanding of energy. The Egyptians perfected it through aromatherapy and color healing, the early Jews codified their understanding of these principles in the mystical Kabbalah and the Islamic Sufi’s embraced the Energy as a connection with God.
Today in our highly charged world we are in urgent need of understanding this ancient knowledge. This is all encompassed in Various movements of the body that will help increase circulation and promote well bring.
Tantric Alchemy is a wonderful way to bring peace and contentment to your life and a very easy way to learn this ancient and sacred method.

How can I own and yet surrender to my sensuality?

Certainly it was not a rational decision. It was a decision that came from a deeper place. A place beyond the rational, the reasonable, the intellectual. It was your calling. The still, small insistence of your desire. Feeling slightly embarrassed, somewhat uncomfortable, you followed that call to the Feminine.
Living your life as an extraordinary tale. Each thing in life, from this place, becomes the sacred sensual.
My consistent practice has helped me to cultivate an indomitable strength, and to value myself as a woman of integrity, of transparency, of sparkling fun and ultimate joy.
Through the love and growth I have experienced, I am now prepared to reveal even more of what I’ve learned that has allowed me to live my life with pleasure as my guiding force.
Is it time for you to know yourself exquisitely?
Love yourself profoundly?
Root yourself in your sensual truth?
Are you ready to share yourself more fully with the world?
Own the ravishing, intoxicating, sacred beauty that you actually are?
You are a hot, sexy, delicious woman of the world whose job as a courageous warrior is to show all of your extraordinary, goddess-like self and to fill up your reservoir with so much love that your path is filled with flowers of joy!
