The Way of the Dancing Warrior

The Dancing Warrior embodies a powerful and creative force that resides within us all. It is an archetypal energy you can gain access to by surrendering to the force of the dance. The Dancing Warrior knows the potency of combining the powers of acceptance and intention and is aware of what is going on around them, knows how to listen to the wisdom within, and possesses the driving force and the peace to dance with whatever life brings.
We are all made from the elements. Bringing movement, awareness and equilibrium to the elements within us helps us to find balance and harmony with the elemental world to which we belong. We are interconnected beings. Forgetting this is a primary cause of many of our day-to-day problems. The Way of the Dancing Warrior is an opportunity to remember through direct experience that each one of us is a unique manifestation in the dance of life.

In this workshop, you will:
• Learn to embody the four elements in your dance
• Create your own elemental dancing medicine wheel and through this, learn to nourish, strengthen, and cleanse your own energy system
• Learn to extend the freedom of the Dancing Warrior toward others,
and the whole community of life on earth through simple dancing ritual
At the end of the workshop, you will be able to take home a powerful toolkit for personal practice that will support you to bring all that you have learned into your day-to-day life
The workshop is open to anyone with or without previous Movement Medicine experience.

I really appreciated the attention to detail in creating a safe, welcoming and spiritual space for us all – the cleansing incense/sage, the subtle lighting, room temperature control, and simply stunning music. As facilitators I found Susannah and Ya’Acov to be highly skilled, compassionate, supportive and great fun. I loved the instruction we received from them and the invitations/reminders to breathe deeper into the process. The exercises, visualisations and meditations were easy to follow, engaging, thoroughly enjoyable, and enabled me to drop deeper into my body as the course progressed. When I was challenged by overwhelming emotions that needed to surface I felt tremendous gratitude for the fact that I was supported, affirmed and assisted in processing them fully. I appreciated the time that was spent on ‘Integration’ to ground our experiences in a practical way so that we could continue the process once the course finished. Most importantly for me is that Susannah and Ya’Acov embody, role model, and are evidently completely passionate about the work they facilitate. Serena Atkinson, Full time Mother
Thank you both so much for the past 5 days, they are 5 of the most productive days, for myself personally, I have spent in a long time. I am endlessly impressed by your extraordinary ability and willingness to grow and evolve, and by your courage in taking the steps necessary to do this. I have the deepest respect and admiration for you both in this – ‘hats off’. My experience in Movement Medicine was that your work has evolved and become even more powerful. The use of my mind’s integration into my dance was a very simple and vital tool. Instead of trying to put a part of myself aside so I could ‘get on’ with the dancing I was able to integrate it and use it to inform and give focus to both my movement and my emotional body. It was like adding another body part and I found there was a dance that went on between my mind, my body and my heart.Rosie Perks, Creative Design Director
