Sunday, October 20 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm


You are kindly invited to this special day workshop in Newton Abbot in which we will explore Biodanza and Neoshamanism.

You will be guided through a transformational journey using the power of movement, music, sound, live drumming, and more. More details to follow, so watch this space!

What is Biodanza?

Biodanza is a system of personal growth and human integration that uses the power of music and movement in a group setting to help us reclaim the wholeness of our Being and develop our multifaceted human potentials so that we can live life to the fullest.

What is Shamanism?
Shamanism is a way of connecting with life, which has been present in humanity since ancient times. From the Paleolithic period, we have communicated with plants and animals and have respected the cycles of nature. In Siberia shamans were spiritual leaders who gave people access to ecstatic states induced by drums, rituals, dances, and songs where they could connect with spirit guides that could help them on the path of healing and inner peace. Shamanism spread throughout Europe and America and can manifest in many ways. Shamanism is timeless and universal and can always be accessed from within.

We all have an inner shaman which can be awakened as we rediscover the connection with our internal and external nature. Shamanism is a spiritual practice that does not correspond to any religious belief. It is an ancient expression of humanity, an ancestral system of connection with the different planes of reality. In a respectful and careful way, current day shamanism brings the possibility of this way of life to modern human beings.

The facilitators
Gail has trained in shamanics over the last 20 yrs with Ken Meadows, Simon Buxton, Carlos Aries Segura from Peru and the late Sarah Howcroft. All are highly regarded as experienced shamans.
