Participants will learn the Ancient Art of the South African trance dance. The trance dance is one of the main methods in Southern Africa for healers to connect to the divine and spirit worlds. It involves shaking the body in a particular way and listening to the heart beat. This dance has been practiced without cessation for thousands of years. John will teach participants to ‘shake their bones’, awaken their intuition and open their hearts. It is a powerful way to connect to one another, our Ancestors, the world around us and our Dreams.

John will teach:

  • people how to understand their dreams, connect with their ancestors and listen to their Hearts.

 Questions to participants?

How badly do you want to wake up and connect to your intuition? What is happiness to you? Are you connected to your bones and the blood in your veins i.e. your ancestors?
