Biodanza - 4 days Silence retreat at Dharma Mountain
Welcome to a 4 days Biodanza Silence retreat
at Dharma Mountain in Valdres, Norway, 24 March - 27 March 2016
"Comming home and the nourishing power of Silence and Peace".
Life is a constant vibration of movements and sounds.
Even silence is a sound. This sound, or vibration, is not so easy to find in our daily life.
During these days, we will focus on the healing power of silence. The workshop starts as a normal biodanza workshop.
The second day we invite you into a non-talking space also between the sessions. From Friday at lunchtime until Sunday morning (two days) we invite the participants to keep the non-talking communication. This means that the workshop is different from all other biodanza workshops. The focus of the teaching is in the line of transcendence, but all the other lines will also be present.
Who can join?
We highly recommend that you have previous experience with Biodanza.
