Seminar series & training courses

Preparation for the educational course “Devadasi dancers and teachers training” 

The Dance  Oracle

Experience the place of prophecy in the center of your heart. According to Socrates: “Know thyself”.                                     

The world with all its phenomena is a great mystery. We cannot comprehend it. But we can ask questions, connect with what is alive in our hearts and allow the dance to take form. In this way, the dance becomes a mirror of your heart.

In scientific terms, the effect of an oracle could be described as follows: An oracle triggers a self-reflective, cathartic process in which emotional perceptions that crystallize into worldviews can be transformed into higher order insights.

The Dance Oracle 1-3 is based on the most important of all tools of the “Devadasi Dance of the Heart” training in Intuitive Sacred Dance, the “golden key”. The Dance Oracle can be practiced on its own or serve as a foundation for subsequent courses. You can practise it for yourself, as a dance meditation, for example to favor inner balance, or make use of it, if you have questions to which you are looking for answers. Later on, you can also use the dance oracle to offer support to other people.

What happens in the workshop:

We dance with what is: We focus our attention on body awareness and the breath. Listening how the breath flows in and out, we allow ourselves to freely move with the breath. Everything that arises in the awareness of body perceptions, thoughts and feelings is integrated into the dance. The synchronization of breath, movement and mind sets an alchemy in process. We become calmer, more balanced and more present. In dance we are free. In consciousness we witness what rises, is there for some time and transforms and passes in its own time. We are invited to drop judgements, preferences, attachments and aversions and simply are with what is there. Everything that emerges nourishes the dance and this in turn nourishes us. We are equally full and empty. Here starts the dance.

Mudra Mantra Mandala

The sacred in dance 1-4

The basics of the Devadasi school are taught. We work with both free and set movement. We explore the interplay of body-movement and mind in mudras, learn simple step sequences to mantras sung by us and dance (spontaneously) choreographed mandala dances in group formation.

Experience the secret of dance in your heart, the spiritual support of traditional mantras and the spiritual and collective power of synchronized movements.

Whirling dance and Sema

Introduction und Deepening

Sema is a ritual known from the Sufi tradition, with sacred music and dance. It invites the practitioner to loosen fixed ideas, concepts and belief systems about ones perception of oneself and the world in order to be allowed fundamental spiritual experiences in the natural expanse of one consciousness.

By dancing in concentric circles the group of dancers initiate a prayer wheel. The vision of a sacred dance temple is given birth. We gather and practice. Eventually a physical place which is dedicated especially to this practice, shall manifest. MANDALA is also a short film project. There might be a follow up film project and for sure you can join us, dancing MANDALA!

MANDALA – a dance-film project

In group formation, we initiate a prayer wheel through dance. A dance community grows. The vision of a dance temple that seeks its own sacred place comes to life and finds expression in a film project. Over the course of a year, people came together to explore sacred dance. On the basis of “Devadasi dance of the heart”, elementary body-awareness training and whirling (as we know it e.g. from Sufi tradition), we allowed MANDALA to take its first shape. The short film MANDALA is born.

Will there be a MANDALA follow-up film? A dance prayer that spans the world?

In 2024/2025, Paramjyoti will be offering the further education unit Mudra Mantra Mandala – the sacred in dance. Among the basic practices of Devadasi school, the five roles of the MANDALA choreography will be taught. A possible vision for the future: graduates will set up their own MANDALA dance groups in their home towns. We dance in different countries and various locations: MANDALA in front of Cologne Cathedral, on the beach in Portugal, in the holy city of Assisi, at the freeway stop, in the Negev Desert in Israel, in the red desert of Namibia with elders from a local tribe, with shamans in Mongolia, in downtown Manhattan, etc…. We film these scenes and compile the footage. A MANDALA follow-up film. Another gift to the world of our time.

Would you like to take part and/or contribute to its realization?

With MANDALA, an inner circle of people has formed who like to come together to practise. A dancing pilgrimage community. Let us experience instand dance temples manifest, as we travel, dance and tour with Paramjyoti and whether a home temple manifests for us. If you have any suggestions, please let us know.
