RITUAL TRANCE DANCE
Dance Into the Infinity inside of You!
Since ancient times humanity has been dancing. Dance was sacred and a way of connecting with spirit.
Dancing in a state of “trance” was a way of accessing the healing powers and the wisdom of spirit, nature, the invisible world.
Ritual Trance Dance is a contemporary ritual created and developed in the late 1980s at the Institute Natale in Houston, USA by Frank Natale and Wilbert Alix.
It has this ancestral, animistic, shamanic root, dance, movement and rhythm as a way of connecting with something greater than ourselves.
Trance Dance is a catalyst for awareness, experience, wisdom, clarity, expanding the inner universe and opening up new possibilities ... In Ritual Trance Dance we dance to transcend ourselves ... to evolve ... to awaken the body's intelligence and wisdom and to activate the vision of the heart!
The ritual is done with a blindfold, enhancing the awakening of the inner vision and the other senses beyond the vision.
“We have eyes that open inward. These ones we use to see dreams” - Mia Couto
A special breath is done and the dance is free, with no predefined steps, no worries of right or wrong, allowing spontaneous, authentic and intuitive movement to arise. An opportunity to explore your inner world and consciousness through movement.
The ritual is dedicated to a personal intention. A question or something that the participant would like to clarify, transform or let go of in himself or in life, etc.
Ritual Trance Dance is a gateway to a dimension outside the space and time of ordinary reality where it is possible to obtain greater clarity and awareness, wisdom and vision about ourselves, about our life and the reality that surrounds us.
Ritual Trance Dance is a non-linear journey and the destination is the same as that of meditation.
What to bring:
Comfortable clothes for dancing, a bottle of water and a blindfold.

"So few words for tremendous immensity of possibilities. Soon we are welcomed with kindness, invited to become space, and guided to the circle that calls us to be there in a ritual of devotion and surrender; Through our movement, whatever it may be, through our purest expression of Being, we dance in discovery. We are alone with us, isolated by a blyndfolf of the expression and movement of the other and the others. Breathing us like never before, intense in ourselves and committed to the mystery. Luisa introduces us to the ritual, urges us on the importance of an intention and supports, supports our movement of expression in a whole of circular space. She feeds us with rhythms, vibrations and pulsations from all corners of the world and is there to ensure that we allow ourselves to go to the end, to the horizontality of exhausted surrender and the deeper feeling of movement in stillness. She does it with immense sensitivity and delicacy and with the beautiful quality of much faciliting without being noticed. Trance Dance with Luisa is magical. Regular Trance Dance with Luisa is transformational. Well thank you Luisa for giving yourself to this incredible manifestation of beauty in motion, being You. ” - José Soutelinho
“Luísa, I loved yesterday's session, the simple and magical way you presented it, the songs and sounds of nature always reinforcing our connection with EARTH, and I loved the feeling of being able to move and express myself simply as I felt like it, as a gift to Life, in pure enjoying the moment. “- Sara Inácio
“With each ritual, a kind of evolution something changes inside and consequently something changes outside. For me it is a meditation in motion, dancing is my favorite meditation, it takes me to know my shadow side and also to know all the happiness and love within me, to discover new paths, to open doors and to close chapters. I am grateful." - Marta Filipa Jacinto
“Thank you for the opportunity to dance blindfolded! It was my first experience and I hope to repeat it! There was a time when I felt truly good and free, without limits, without shame, without fear! The more I gave myself to music the more freedom I felt! Then there was some tiredness, some need to stop and the last part lying down I seemed like heaven and infinite! That song is powerful! I also liked the sharing wheel, everything you said at the beginning, in the end. There were not many words to share, they were all still plunged into the sea of silence. All this to say a single word: Thank you! ” - Margarida Oliveira
