Astroshamanic Dance, 10-11; 12-13 September 2016, Merizzo (Massa, Italy)

With Franco Santoro.

A visionary, down to earth and empowering workshop, providing participants with a direct experience on how to use astrology, shamanism, dance and drama for deeply healing and transformational purposes.

In this workshop, Franco invites you to join him on an empowering and healing journey through dance, drama, movement and stillness.

During the workshop we delve into trance dance and drama according to astrological and natural cycles, using a large variety of sounds, creating sacred space, establishing connections with spirit powers, directing and redeploying energies and using them to support major transformational processes.

The workshop includes the ecstatic rhythms of various traditions and various applications of the Basic Ritual of the Sacred Cone.

The workshop is designed for newcomers as well as for those who wish to consolidate previous experiences with astroshamanic trance dance and theatre.
