Ecstatic Sacred Dance as a Form of Initiation
ECSTATIC SACRED DANCE AS A FORM OF INITIATION
Spiritual ecstatic dance is a form of active meditation, a prayer, a state of beneficial trance where rhythm and music is used for entering into a special state of consciousness, a state of deep relaxation, a creative state of deep meditation.
Rhythm and music creates changes in our being according to the Law of Resonance. Strong musical effects in our environment create our whole body and even our brain vibrate with the rhythm.
Practioners of such music enter into a deep state of beneficial trance – this way they can experience the healing power of rhythm.
Sacred Dance is a means of travelling between dimensions, of entering into a transcendental reality, the world of Gods we could earlier perceive only by intuition.
Sacred Dance, danced in a conscious way, is a movement imitating the Dance of the Cosmos. Thus our body transforms into a musical instrument, an instrument of healing: we reharmonize our being and the planet, everything transforms into a living mandala, a wheel of life manifesting symbols. We reintergrate into the Cosmos and meet the reality of the essence of our being.
We become conscious about ourselves and our movements, discovering new energies and movements giving life to our body and helping us to live closer to universal rhytms. This is the opening of new possiblities to discover our own unity, balance and we can transform our communication with our soul’s plan and with other beings.
Each shape unfolds a new wave, an inner vibration representing reality giving it shape and colour. Shape is nothing, but a part of the projected Gigantic Space through which Cosmos is manifesting itself.
The language of movement and music is a mathematical work based on exact calculations and units. Each movement has its exact place, timing and importance. Combinations and sequences of movement are mathematically calculated. Body postures and attitudes are in a defined order for the purpose of creating certain effects and emotions – this is the essence of Objective Art.
When creating the movements in Sacred Dance, each minute detail has its importance, nothing happens by chance. Certain gestures, rhythms, postures are possible only by representing a certain, well-defined state of cosmic or human life, thus they are a symbol of life itself. Sacred Dance is a natural state of Grace that can be found in each of us. Sacred Dance has always been and will always remain spiritual. It is the universal language transcending cultures and civilizations that speaks about the essence of our soul.
Spiritual dance teaches us how to create our movements into prayer, how to make our body an instrument for the celebration of life and peace, a glorious manifestation of all that exists, positive and negative.
Spiritual dance helps us to express our ideas and feelings in a physical form more easily. We can say that spiritual dance is a kind of dynamic spiritual exercise to controll the mind and the body.
