Dancing Archetypes

14-16 August 2020 at Veduna Retreats!

Connect deeper to your soul by opening up to your Archetypes.

Delve deep into the purity of silence, through Slovenia’s beautiful landscapes.

Enjoy the stunning land of Veduna Retreats, and let your body, mind and spirit heal through nature.

Dancing Archetypes: a chance to let you soul bloom through movement, aligning the magnificent temple of your body.

Visualize sitting on a top of a hill, surrounded with pristine nature, embraced by a centre of healing and learning in an environment that is so beautiful, peaceful and nurturing, so in rhythm with Nature, that even the deepest of wounds can be recognised and the healing process lovingly held and supported.

A space where new paradigms are pushed and deeper understandings are gained. # Welcome to Veduna Retreats!

It is early in the morning, steamy but light fog is rising, slowly unveiling nearest mountain view...and you are waiting for a pot of hot herbal tea...and a completely new sensuous experience...

If you sometimes feel like something is boiling deep down your soul, you can't figure it out but want to express it through mindful movement, this 3 days inner journey is providing a loving sanctuary that will safely navigate your emotions into deep and authentic release!

By facilitating a space to unplug for a while and nurture yourself with time to figure out inner turmoil through artful expression and self-exploration, I'm offering you an empowering method that will gently guide you into your intimate world and help you resolve inner tension or conflict, caused by inner dialoguing between archetypes that seek out expression.

Archetypes are universal patterns of behavior and are accessible to us through the illumination of unconscious and imaginal. Through them we develop relationships with our essential being and develop the potential of our soul. They speak to us through realms of poetry, images, metaphor, imagination, art, mythology and religion.

And this is where our journey of deep excavation into depths of our soul will bring up the language you were born knowing into your consciousness, to the surface.

Why don't you surrender to this divine force within you and let it express itself fully embodied in a safe space of emotional availability?

By discovering archetypes as the lenses through which you can perceive the world symbolically, you can identify energies in yourself from a detached point of view and clearly see where your motivations, fears, desires, passions and choices come from; allowing you to then make an informed and conscious decision versus running our lives on “default” mode or live consciously.

This 3 days journey is all about trusting & celebrating your own body intelligence.

You'll get completely immersed in self-exploration by learning about archetypes in motion.

We'll be embodying and dancing archetypes on KAIROS LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS - mythic time of here and now.

Through guided warm up and meditative dance ritual, I walk you to consciously choose and connect with 12 "human" archetypes, which will help you raise your alertness to see the key patterns of power in play and illuminate solutions regarding your momentarily most important issue that seeks resolution.

Come with a particular intention to awaken yourself from this dormant state of being!

Supported by flowing mindfulness, we’ll then surrender to archetypal energies and use various movement tools to activate our inner depths that will enable your archetypal dialogue to express itself through a free & authentic dance form, safe release of emotions and playful dynamic within a group.

Journey leads into collective ritualized dance event, in which each participant is encouraged to express dynamics of archetypes in his own particular way of moving & playing - individually, in pairs and within a group.

I realized a new dimension of personal perception of this sacred world around us. It was the first time I systematically went into exploring my personality traits in a very useful way and I think I now have an immediate“soul” map that I can turn to in the moment when I need orientation. For the most part, I find that the greatest value of your program lies in the use of dance that really comes across archetypes. In this way, everything has touched me in more and more personal way. A unique and easier way to internalize and remember than if you just stuck your head in the paper.

Thanks to Sandra's guidance and warmheartedness I had an amazing experience in beautiful Slovenian countryside. Looking forward to continue woking with Archetypes and dance my head off. Thank you Sandra and all lovely participants!

We can understand and interpret archetypes with our mind (left brain). But working through body - movement - can bring us to more holistic experience, deeper understanding, which activates right hemisphere of our brain.

Recognizing archetypes within yourself demands alertness and attention.

To bring them into awareness and embodiment demands training.

When we work with embodiment of archetypes, we somehow unravel complex and difficult features of our natures.

When we dance our archetypes, we recognize our weaknesses, habits and automated movements. In this way we better understand them and navigate more smoothly through their dynamic relationships.

By the end of this journey, through an artful combination of learning & exploring archetypes through medium of body and movement, you will have de-stressed from city life, learned to trust your body's innate intelligence, and gained all the symbolic perspectives and insights to your current issue that help maintain the harmony of mind, body and spirit in the midst of a passionate, fulfilling life!

"....Back from a beautiful immersion in Nature, simple community living, back to the earth, to the waters sweet salty that nurture cleans and energizes our dancing bodies, water falls streams rivers sea rain tears , back to the earth and its whispering voices, awakening our instinct and wisdom. Trust, co-creating and collaborating with a beautiful group of explorers , celebrating green silent breathing forests and fire horses singing voices spinning souls in stillness and in motion windy rocks and changing landscapes, unveiling manifesting diving deep the dance of Maya and recognition ,whirling longing of freedom and transformation, sacrifices and archetypes smiling beyond and within - expanded -nurtured - inspired

I thank you all

Greatful to be able to dance this inspiring life "
