Shake Your Bones and Open Your Heart

Presented by Earth Sky Tribe

$201 for 2 day intensive

Do you know your life path, or life's calling? What is happiness to you? Are you connected to your bones and the blood in your veins i.e. your ancestors? 

We all have indigenous roots and are native people from somewhere on the planet. This workshop is about reconnecting with your native ancestors, and learning to see through the eyes of your bones. Participants will learn the ancient ‘Xentsa’ or trance dance, as well as ‘ingomas’ or ceremonial chants. The healer’s dance has been performed for hundreds of years in Southern Africa to promote healing in various forms. 

Participants will be taught this dancing style. There will be periods during the weekend of ‘free dancing’ to allow the community to ‘feel their spirits’ move. This weekend we will do more than dance…. as we will be setting a sacred container and praying together.

The Sangoma rhythm is a particular heart-beat rhythm and the ingomas or songs are chants, sung to invoke the ancestors and healing spirits. It is well known that the sound of the Sangoma drum is enough to help connect people to their spirits and to dream in a mystical way. Participants will learn to understand their dreams & listen to their Hearts. 

People are welcome to bring their own instruments to facilitate learning this new rhythm.


Dress warmly as we may be outside with fire (weather permitting). This is not residential, please bring a lunch with you both days.
