Shamanic Trance Dances

Sarah Lownds, her shamanic name “Buffalo Medicine Women” was gifted to her by her elder in 2006 and is only used in her Shamanic Trance Dance work, keeping it sacred to this form of energy healing. Sarah has worked full time as a holistic therapist for the past 22 years and practices many forms of healing, from Shamanism, Sound healing to Breathwork. Sarah is based at her Natural Therapies centre, “Sarpenela” in Dorset, where she runs regular Reiki training courses and holds a monthly Shamanic circle for women “The Sacred Journey” along with regular Meditation evenings and Gong Baths.

Shamanic Trance Dance is “Buffalo Medicine Woman’s” passion and joy, she has always loved to lose herself if the spirit of the dance allowing the energy of the music to deeply connect to her soul. She brings her skills of sound healing and her work with the Celtic Medicine Wheel to support the energy of dance. Buffalo Medicine Woman feels it is a true honour for her to facilitate dance. Seeing the energy, love and respect of the dancers makes her feel she is at home with the tribe.

The Traditional Shamanic Trance Dance

This transformational dance re-connects you to your physical body by exploring movement. Dancing to dynamic rhythms will journey you to the higher and lower worlds. Through the ritual of calling in the directions of the Celtic medicine wheel, we ensure a safe space for you to be free to express your emotions. We sit in circle to connect with one another and set the intent of your own dance. This is a blindfolded dance. The dancers are supported throughout the process to ensure the safety and freedom of movement. It is a powerful experience to let go of the ego by not seeing the outer world and connecting with yourself. The whole process lasts two and a half hours with a break half way through. You will feel the whirl of emotions during the process and finish feeling transformed.

The Shamanic Spirit Trance Dance

This dance is all about understanding and embracing the medicine of the Celtic medicine wheel. You will become enchanted and empowered, the journey will unfold, connecting you to Mother Earth, the Great Spirit and your own higher self and your inner sanctuary. Through this free flowing dance we also connect with and express the elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth. By letting go and losing yourself in the music, the sounds and the dance will awaken your spirit, It is all about dropping the ego and allowing yourself to be in the moment to help bring mental clarity and emotional well-being.  Healing and food for your soul. This dance is for one and half hours.

The Shamanic Kundalini Chakra Dance

Dance is fun, it lifts our spirits and can bring us to a place of peace and enlightenment. This dance connects us to serpent energy, the god and goddess within and our own inner power. By awakening the kundalini energy we connect to our true potential, let go of fear and step into our truth. Once the Kundalini energy is flowing we shift our focus on to the Chakra system dancing the emotions represented by each chakra and tapping into the tide of our own emotions. This dance relieves tension and energises you, freeing suppression, freeing you from a runaway mind and connects you to your core. It is a journey of shaking and dancing, moving into stillness and silence. This Dance is for one hour.
