Temecula Yoga Collective
In all tribal cultures, Dance/Movement is used in ritual to mark a rite of passage or to connect with or embody the Greater Something. In modern society we have curbed our natural impulses to move freely and have turned dance into performance, rather than a profound internal experience. Unlike trance dances, devotional dances are not intended to take the user into a trance state, but to deepen the experience of the embodied mover. Devotional Dance is a free-form movement ritual that allows us to move into and in connection with our Greater Self and the Greater Something.
Devotional Dancers are invited to bring an item to add to the altar, bring Prasad (food to offer to the divine), or volunteer to co-create an altar. The group begins in a connective circle, words are spoken, and then the dance begins. Music selected is devotional in nature and the movers hold silence to keep the space sacred and the focus inward. The group completes in a connective circle with a sharing of Prasad and a deepening into Kula (community).
