LEARN TO FACILITATE this powerful neo-shamanic dance ritual process that REJUVENATES our SENSORY PERCEPTIONS and DEEPENS TRUST in our spiritual/emotional body. Ritual Trance Dance is not a dance style or a dance technique but rather an intelligent, PROFESSIONALLY STRUCTURED RITUAL PROCESS (developed over nearly 40 years) that GUIDES PARTICIPANTS towards INTEGRITY of mind and heart.

Ritual Trance Dance utilizes surprisingly powerful SENSORY DEPRIVATION techniques. Since 1989 this training has been taken by psychology professionals, dance teachers and wellness program facilitators from more than 40 countries around the world. Currently trainings are being held in Europe and the USA.
