Awakened Bellydance Workshops
Awakened Bellydance (AWBD) is guided meditative and transformative journey through movement, dance and music.
A journey of self discovery, that allows you to explore and reconnect with yourself in a supportive, inclusive and safe environment. You do not need to be a dancer to take part and as you can work to your own abilities fitness levels are not an issue.
During a session music is used to take you on a journey through different sound waves, you are guided through a combination of practices using dance, breath, group, individual and partner work in this movement meditation inspired by middle eastern and sacred dance moves.
Awakened Bellydance is a way of developing a deeper relationship with yourself which is entirely experiential. You are enabled to initiate growth through self love and compassion, letting go of restrictions and fears.
Everyone’s experience with the process is different. Here are some words from Northumberland based Awakened Bellydance Facilitators Beth Lister and Caroline Leck about their own personal experiences.
Beth: "I would say that you will go as deep as you want or need to. From my first experience of AWBD I felt a deep sensation of peace and self awareness, a sense of belonging in my own skin and also in the universe. My emotions and self discoveries were much stronger and deeper each time. The sessions that followed were much deeper again, getting to know my inner self and making discoveries. I feel like I can see the world more clearly and that the world can now see me, as if a veil has been lifted".
Caroline: "I can honestly say AWBD has done me the world of good and feel better in my skin for it. I have totally surrendered to the process, and the more I have done it the deeper I have gone. I have experienced intense releases. I always knew I had an issue with grief but not what to do with it! There is something very powerful about being held emotionally and physically by someone who is totally unfazed by emotions and is able to hold that space for you whilst the group process continues and you re-join when you are ready and move on. Powerful lessons for me".
As well as offering shorter taster sessions, blocks of 7 classes, one for each of the chakras are also available. Sessions are available to the general public and also as private bookings for groups of friends or corporate events. Workshops and events will be listed below and on the Awakened Bellydance Northumberland Facebook group (Click here to join).
Note: These sessions are about spiritual development, not learning how to become a belly dancer.
