Workshop: Primal Dance – Awakening the 7 basic capacities
Primal Dance is a method for self-exploration and personal, and interpersonal development based on performing simple, primordial movements and gestures accompanied by specially selected ethnic and contemporary music to produce non-ordinary states of consciousness.
The method, developed by Argentinian psychologist Daniel Taroppio, uses a synthesis of Eastern traditions like the chakra system described in traditional yoga, Qi Gong and the modern Western psychological approaches to personal and transpersonal development (Wilber, Grof, etc.)
Its practice doesn’t require any dancing experience, as it does not consist of performing complicated choreographic movements but in harmonizing our energies through spontaneous, primordial or archetypal body movements, postures, gestures, and sounds.
Following the map of the chakra system, Primal Dance looks to harmonize and activate the bio-psycho-social and transpersonal capacities related to the different chakras. In its deepest form, Primal Dance is a moving meditation that helps us access in a systematic way higher, subtle and expansive states of consciousness.
In the session, we will work with highly experiential, individual and group exercises to explore, heal and unfold our innate capacities for basic trust, joy, personal power, emotive and affective expression, creativity, intuition, and transcendence.
