Dance is the form of communication and healing par excellence. Through dance we align with the movement of nature and the stars, finding in our bodies the unity between earth and sky.
In astroshamanic healing dances, a contemporary adaptation of the ancient practices of Mediterranean mystery religions, your body merges with the earth and the sky, letting go of the identification with the ego and its social roles. This is the first step in healing: moving from the autistic state of our separate personality to the collective union with the planet and with the whole. From this perspective, a state of health is given by your adherence to wholeness and not to your personal physical conditions.
Health is not a competition intended to prove to be healthier and more performing, to live longer and better than others. Health means being aligned with the earth and the sky, feeling part of the whole, no matter if you are physically ill or not.
The disease is the identification with one’s body, being interested only in health and private well-being, the sense of separation from the whole. This is a disease, which will eventually get manifested even at a physical health, since no matter how healthy you appear to be in the end your body is going to die.
Everything includes the cycle of life and death. Every minute, one hundred million cells die in our body and this is to allow our body to live. Every day in the planet, 160000 people die and this allows the planet to live. Even this planet will eventually die, to allow the universe to live.
Healing does not mean healing yourself! Healing means ceasing to identify with your body.
When you identify yourself only with your own body, then you pretend that it will always live. Then you compete with other bodies and the environment you perceive as alien. You get depressed, you blame yourself or others if you are sick. But in reality you have been sick for a long time, whether you are healthy or ill. And even if you manage to overcome a physical illness, to the great satisfaction of your personal self-esteem, you will continue to be sick, even more sick than before.
The fact that you are able to recover from an illness, instead of dying, means nothing in terms of actual health. Of course, you can feel good and be admired for having won the disease, as well as writing successful books about it. But your victory over the disease actually serves to bitterly prove that those who die are losers. And since everyone is destined to die, including you, the moment you exult for your healing, you condemn everyone and yourself to defeat.
The dance and the healing touch serve to heal from the sense of separation, to recover your identification with everything and everyone, to accept life and death, to always be victorious, never over someone or something, but together with everything and everyone .
