Tandava – Dance of the Divine

What is Tandava?


It’s a part of the tantric practice.
The Dance of the Divine.
A ritual of self connection, fueled by connection to your breath and gentle slow movements.
a moving meditation with reverence for your body and the bodies that you share the space with.

What can you expect?
Diving deep, ankering in yourself, being embraced by the space from the outside and caressed from the inside by the stream of your breath.
Liberating your life force in a gentle and fluid way.

You don’t need to come with a partner, though couples are welcome too. No previous (tantra) experience needed
We start with silence, we end in silence, inbetween there will be music. 
Tandava is a sensual and respectful dance.
During the initial meditation there will be a guidance into the breathwork along the rootchakra and the following up-stream through the energy centers.

The Phases of the Ritual:
The dance of the divine is build in 5 clear phases.
There is no fixed form in terms of shape, but a clear energetic build up and rules to the ritual.

We start in Silence, blending into music and we end in Silence again.

Rule 1: stay closely connected to your own wishes and needs, respect your borders.

Phase 1 
Ankering down. Connect to your body, your breath, your root.

Phase 2
Spread your wings

Allow your spine and your arms to move,
carried by the inner movements of your breath.

Phase 3
Enter the space

Find the way from your base into the room, listen to your own tempo, transition to
enter the space, pay attention to the sensation of the air on your skin, stay connected to the rooting into your feet.

Phase 4

Phase 5
Sit. Listen. Breathe.

Phase 6  – optional
Reflection. There will be space for Talk, for exchange.
maybe Body-work, or simply laying and breathing together.
