The Dorset School of Biodanza offers an indepth residential training in the Dance of Life – Biodanza Rolando Toro System – with the support of a vibrant community in the heart of the Dorset countryside
So What is Biodanza?
Biodanza is a series of dance/movement exercises, to music, designed to give you an intense experience of the here and now – the present moment. We call it a VIVENCIA, or being ‘in vivencia’.
Biodanza proposes that modern humans live totally contrary to their biological setup. For 99.997% of human history we lived in small groups, as part of nature. Nowadays, we live separate from each other, (even our own families), and way separate from nature, in an unreal ‘thinking universe’ where almost all our energies are devoted to the past or future – what we should have done or said, and what we are going to do or say! Our biological systems have not evolved as quickly as our cerebral cortex has.
As our rational thinking mind has become dominant and controls our behaviour to an unprecedented degree, our instincts, feelings and emotions have been forced to take a back seat- to the detriment of our overall health and well-being. Biodanza aims to reunite us with our biology, our natural organic functions that have enabled us to survive for millions of years. By becoming ‘present’, by being ‘in the moment’, or in vivencia, our thoughts are not with us and our instincts, feelings and emotions have a chance to manifest and be expressed, from the heart and through the body.
This is a welcome and much needed opportunity in this day and age, and the process, over time, produces some remarkable therapeutic effects.
The Dorset School
Weekends start on Friday evening after dinner with a full 2 hr vivencia to integrate the group and really arrive. This session will later be used for you to gain your first experience of teaching practice.
And because the centre is for the whole weekend, there will always be 5 full vivencias. We will not be asked to leave by any irate janitor because the time we have rented the hall has expired!
The residential nature of the School weekends serves to unite the group more closely and create a bonding experience which is often fractured when everyone goes home for the night and comes back the next day.
Regular, reliable start and finish times and adherence to that schedule. No more Biodanza time!
Fresh, clean country air. No noise pollution and extensive grounds of beautiful nature, which will often permit outdoor vivencias.
Saturday night entertainment option. Some weekends will be shared with other compatible groups, so there will be chance to mix with other people in a convivial atmosphere, at the bar or on the dance floor. And we can always entertain ourselves with the intra group talent!
The opportunity to avail yourselves of a treatment from the Healing Centre in the breaks. Massage, Shiatsu and more often available.
Use of Osho Leela’s unique wood-fired yurt sauna (when available)
Healthy, sumptuous, vegetarian food to support your process, with Leela’s famed chocolate brownies and other treats…
The buddhafield of Osho Leela. Years of setting a tone for opening, growth and development, literally in the air around you.
The backup support of a dedicated community of open, loving people.
