What is Soul Shine – Dance Meditation?
Soul Shine Dance Meditation (SSDM) has been created by Vicky Rainbow (www.soulshine.org.uk) over the past 10 years. It is a collection of tools, techniques, exercises, reflections, affirmations & movements that can help you create more health, happiness and harmony in your heart & mind (thoughts/feelings), body, soul and thus with others and in the world around.
The dances can be guided simple steps or freedance (gives you a chance to explore your own natural ways of movement). All the music is carefully chosen and is uplifting, healing and inspiring.
What is SSDM Philosphy?
SSDM works on the belief that I am a soul, a spiritual being that lives inside my body and that i make the body move. The soul is the energy that thinks, feels and experiences. When I can get in touch with myself (the soul), I can decide what thoughts I want to create, what feelings I want to feel, how I want to move/use my body, and what I would like to express out to others and the world. I can also connect with the supreme soul/God/the Divine and receive love, power and guidance from that One & share that with others & the world
SSDM draws its ideas/beliefs from a variety of spiritual philosophies, great teachers and personal development paths such as the Raja Yoga (Brahma Kumaris), Buddhism, and Louise Hay. It is always adapting and changing, but it is essentially a therapeutic practise to connect with the goodness, beauty and power that lives within.
Who is it for?
SSDM is suitable for all ages and abilities. Everyone can move at their own pace. It is a light and joyful way of releasing old energy and bringing in new thoughts & feelings into our lives. Its great for people who love to meditate yet are unable to sit too much.
