Module 1 – DJ & Facilitator
Intention for our first weekend is Embodiement. It is important that we have a solid understanding of what conscious dance is for us to be able to share it with others.

During this module we will explore the history and origin of conscious dance genre as a therapeutic, spiritual and social movement. We will also explore the most common types of conscious dance events currently practiced in the world.

Module 2- Team Building, Event Planning & Implementation

Intention for Module 2 is Harnessing your Vision. There are many moving parts to bringing a conscious dance event to life. As with everything we must be clear on our vision for it to manifest.
