Winter bliss – silent retreat with Unni Heim
Essential remembrance and connection through silence, biodanza, meditation, flowdancing, cacao ceremony, fire ceremony, sharing circles and free time.
Welcome to a nourishing weekend of deeper connection at beautiful Dharma Mountain.
Getting together in a container of warmth, silence, dance, meditation and ceremonies has become one of my priorities in life. It is a doorway to expanded consciousness and essential connection with who we are. It often brings deep meaning, healing and reconnection.
From Friday morning to Sunday at lunch time we will not talk with each other using words (except from the possibility of sharing in sharing circles). This gives us a possibility for deeper listening and more inner focus.
The silence/non talking period is supported by biodanza, flowdancing, meditation, ceremonies and free time.
About Biodanza: Biodanza is a radical system of integration and change. It invites us to open up to life fully on all levels and to awaken dormant life potential.
Dance, movements, connection on all levels (connection with yourself, with others and with life in its totality) are essential as powers of change in Biodanza. Physical connection is also a part of Biodanza.
About Flowdancing: Flowdancing is a guided dance meditation journey. You can have your eyes closed or open as you choose.
- meditation because it shifts my consciousness
- medicine because it harmonizes stress and stuck emotions
- a mediator because it offers me a space of exploration in all directions.
- a medium because I can ride the wave of exploration in it.
About Cacao Ceremony: Cacao ceremony is a meditative sacred ritual inviting us for deeper connection; connection with ourselves, with life and with our highest purpose.
Ceremonial Cacao acts as a heartful facilitator for inner work.
Holding a high vibrational quality, Cacao will guide you deeper into your body, stimulate your mind, and awaken your sensitivity, making it the perfect ally to support your silence, our dance and our insight and it carries you deeper within.To enter the moment in a ceremonial way opens new doors of perception.
The retreat takes place in the middle of wild nature with mountains, rivers, trees, fresh air and clean snow.
