Inner Dance Intensive
with Sarah-Joy Amin & Katie Holland
What Is The Inner Dance Experience?
The Inner Dance is a transformative self-awakening process that organically leads one in surrender towards authentic and meaningful existence through intuitive healing, release-work, and energy awareness. It is a trance-based intuitive perception that allows participants to experience the world as vibratory fields of energy. Through Inner Dance one experiences an intuitive remembrance or knowing of one's true Self through heightened inner awareness of Oneself as an Intelligent Energy Field. It brings us into the highest Observation of Self as energy that then can be changed, healed and transformed. By tapping into this Intelligence, the Inner Dance process can peel away layers of our conditioned mental limitations and allows the highest healing to happen for body, mind and spirit. The methodology works through brain wave states, sound/music and introspection.
The Inner Dance process is a heart-filled journey back to our innate resonance. The process helps us to change the way we experience the world by transporting the mind to intuitive consciousness, flow and surrender to source. Deepen your quest for truth…come with an open heart and mind, plus the will to journey into the unknown.
The Inner Dance has become a global movement of healers, artists, medical practitioners, ecologists, transformation experts and community leaders who are experiencing change from inside themselves as they bring change to the world around them. For more details check out the Inner Dance website:
Workshop 1 will take you into a journey of self-discovery and an initial understanding of the Inner Dance process.
It aims to support participants start a process towards increased awareness, peace and freedom from layers of old heavy emotions, negative thought patterns and body holding patterns. For those persons well on the spiritual or transformation path, the healing may bring both deep release as well as greater clarity and spiritual awakeness as you enter greater states of Oneness with Universal Consciousness.
Workshop 2 will help participants to better understand the Inner Dance framework, the different psychological stages throughout the journey, the connection between music and brain wave states and energy workings generally. Workshop 2 will hold a longer Inner Dance journey for deeper experiences.
Both workshops will be led by two facilitators: Katie Holland from the U.K. and Sarah-Joy Amin (see facilitators profile below).
Come with comfortable clothes, a yoga mat and an open mind!
Eat light before the workshops.
About Katie Holland
Katie recently held the first UK Inner dance facilitator training. She has been extremely active in sharing this empowering modality across India and the UK. Following an innate fascination for dance and the profound healing it can give; Katie has been dancing from the age of three, with 20 years experience in Arab/Egyptian Dance. Katie has studied Ballet, Tap, Modern, African, Samba, Bollywood, Sacred Nepalese, Sufi Whirling and Gurdjieff Sacred dances and is currently studying Bharatnatyam and Balinese dance.
With a specific interest in dance for healing and self-empowerment combined with her experience as a Reiki Master, Holistic therapist, Shamanism and as a Yoga teacher Katie had been successfully developing her own energetic, healing dance therapy when she 'chanced' upon Pi Villaraza in Malaysia. After experiencing Inner Dance Katie felt this not only allowed her to deepen her own level of Self-understanding and the world, it consolidated her life's work to date and also gave her access to previously unknown knowledge and strengths within her that she was then able to share with others.
Katie is currently based in Asia working on dance projects and organises 'Kashtat Bedu' Sacred Dance and Yoga Retreats across. Katie trained with Pi Villaraza.
Pi discovered Inner Dance whilst living alone on a deserted beach island in Palawan for two years. Since Pi started holding workshops and word of the amazing transformational abilities of Inner Dance has spread, the experiences have been documented in many newspaper reports, featured in a full length film documentary by a multi-awarded film maker and many international magazines. Workshops are now held the world over and Pi has created several healing spaces across the Philippines, also working closely with the medical community: www.innerdanceprocess.org
