Dance as a Manifesting Practice
Everything we do is motivated by the feeling we get while doing it. The Idea that something in the future will eventually make us happy seems to stay just an Idea. These Ideas never seem to materialize or become something until we add the Feeling to it.
In the analogy of a sailboat – Ideas or Intentions are the steering mechanism while the Emotions are the sails that propel us forward.
Dance is a powerful tool to engage with your Emotional body, to deploy those sails that stay rolled and dormant within and bring those Intentions to life. It is the first physical expression of your intangible Idea… it is the first step towards fulfilling your Dream.
“Dancing between Heaven and Earth” is not just a metaphor – it describes the bridging process of bringing your Intention into material Reality.
Adrian has been deeply touched by music and felt inspired to create dance journeys since 1993, initially for small gatherings of friends from one of the first Integral Yoga School in Europe, known today as Agama Yoga.
Shortly after that, in 1997 he met his soulmate partner Monica and they embarked on a journey that led them throughout Europe, North America and Australia. They were guided on this path by amazing people that shared their wisdom with them in serendipitous moments - from hermits in the Carpathians Mountains, ex-military officers that became meditation masters in order to deal with PTSD in Washington D.C. and Native American Shamans leading sacred pipe ceremonies, sweat lodges and medicine ceremonies in the mountains of North California.
In 2011 Adrian encountered one of his most influential teachers Samantha Sweetwater at Burning Man Festival in the Nevada Desert and he started the Dancing Freedom Facilitator training shortly after that. He became a certified Dancing Freedom Facilitator in 2012, held classes in North California until the end of 2012 when he and his partner continued their journey to Australia. Since 2013, they are facilitating weekly Ecstatic Dance journeys and a monthly Cacao Ceremony in Brisbane.
