Dance Alchemy (previously known as Dance Energy Transformation) is a transformational work using the power of dance, expression, self-acceptance through the heart and meditation as a therapeutic process. It can be at the very least a freeing discovery of aliveness in the body and emotions - yet in it's depth can lead participants to understand their psychological issues, learn to transform negative energies within themselves, find self-love and acceptance, discover their basic gifts and life challenges, and easily enter meditation.
Dance Alchemy is based on the vision of enlightened Master Osho - the concept of Zorba the Buddha. People can move into meditation in a way that is not difficult and serious, but alive and joyous. The dance meditation techniques give us tools to express the colors of life - feeling, crying. laughing. Living all of our emotions and energies as they are brings joy, self-love and opens the door to fall into presence and silence.
In the groups we learn the alchemy of transformation - love and acceptance, intense aliveness and a witnessing presence. We bring this alchemy to our bodies, energies, and feelings through dance expression, heart and silence.
As we dance, the restrictions of conditioning that have burdened our hearts begin to melt, and be transformed. Many of the repressed energies and feelings that we carry like a burden have important, vital and beautiful qualities hidden beneath them - qualities which we need for our lives - to enjoy, grow, evolve into the unique being we are meant to be. We discover the treasures inside of us.
Let's learn the art of this alchemy through dance - an easy and natural way to come alive and find our hearts, joy and silence again!
About Maneesha and the team:
This work arose a few years after Maneesha became a disciple of Osho in 1973 and discovered meditation. Living in His ashram in Pune, India, she dropped her study of dance performance and technique and plunged into inner exploration, being fortunate enough to participate in many cutting-edge therapies, psychological and metaphysical studies - and plenty of free dance expression. Osho Dance Alchemy was born out of her understanding of the alchemy of transformation, which happens so easily through the medium of dance - acceptance, dance expression, stillness - and the magic happens.
Maneesha has been leading groups, classes, trainings and individual sessions in Dance Energy Transformation in India, Europe, and in the US for many years. She continues to expand her work and it’s possibilities. Recently she became certified as a provider of Continuing Education Credits for massage therapists and body workers by the National Board (NCBTMB) in the USA. She is currently studying body based trauma healing though the SE Professional Training.
Trainings developed to include not only tools for inner transformation, but many ways to apply the alchemy and the intuitive abilities learned, in daily life situations, personal and professional relationships, and in work as teachers, session givers, bodyworkers.
Maneesha lives in Sedona, Arizona, and is the director of The Osho Institute for Dancing.
