Experience the healing, joy, and embodiment of belly dancing as energy medicine for your physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
Awaken your true essence through sacred ceremony — tailored to balance your dominant elemental energy type.
It may surprise you that belly dance is actually a form of energy medicine…
… activating physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Through the gentle flow of movement, you bypass the mind and experience a truly somatic healing experience.
Suitable for all shapes, sizes, and ages, belly dancing allows you to embody your true essence quickly and easefully, as you activate the powerful energies of your root chakra…
… opening you to a freeing feeling in the body with greater comfort in your own skin, heightened creativity, and deeper joy.
Belly dancing can help you reclaim your body from objectification, cultural taboos, and the emotional weight of family stories. Physical weight loss can be a benefit as well. AND, it’s also a lot of fun!
This is NOT Las Vegas-style belly dancing, performed in scant, navel-exposing, see-through, and sequined costumes, and choreographed to be alluring to men — the incorrect perception many have of this ancient dance form.
Rather, it’s healing movements for YOU, with yourself as your own witness.
Traced back to the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Africa, the traditional, ancient form of belly dancing was created by women and performed by women, FOR women — to celebrate each other’s beauty, femininity, and stages of womanhood.
In Awaken the 5 Elements Through Belly Dance & Ceremony, sisters Dondi Dahlin and Titanya Monique Dahlin — both highly experienced energy medicine and dance teachers — will guide you through gentle belly dancing movements AND sacred ceremonies…
… and you’ll learn practical tips for self-care, self-empowering exercises, and strategies for creating your own altar — as powerful ways to work through your challenges and get back into balance to experience greater joy and wellbeing.
Reclaiming Balance Through the Chinese Five Elements
According to ancient Chinese medicine, we’re each born with an inner vibration that determines our personality and the way we approach life…
This wisdom is based on the Chinese Five Elements — Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal — and we generally exhibit the qualities (or energies) of one or two.
Determining which element most describes your personality type, and honoring and working with it as your unique energy type — can help you heal physically, emotionally, spiritually.
Living out of alignment with the energies of your element, or elements, can prolong and perpetuate painful old thought patterns and stuck emotions, causing depression, anxiety, fatigue, and even illness.
For example, if you’re predominantly Water — a deep feeler who navigates more slowly through life — when out of balance, you may retreat or suffer from depression. By learning ways to work with this element, you can bring yourself back into balance to experience more clarity, peace, and joy.
If, on the other hand, your element is Fire, an imbalanced state may find you distracted, lacking follow-through, and getting easily burned-out… astray from your passionate, positive, and energetic Self.
Knowing the element or elements you’re uniquely attuned to — and that you were born with — is the first step to healing…
… and empowering yourself to live a more balanced, healthy, and joyous life.
Aligning with your unique elemental energy heightens your sense of compassion for yourself and others, and sets you on a journey to discovering yourself in a deeply authentic way.
Viewing your personality characteristics — and those of others — through the Chinese Five Elements enables you to develop more compassion for yourself and the people in your life…
… because you understand not only what makes you tick, but what’s at the root of the words and actions of your family members, friends, co-workers, and community.
Learning the Five Elements provides a guidebook for your life… a new lens to find solutions to your problems, understand your story about the journey you’re on, and choose a more authentic, soul-led path for the future.
AND, when the world’s oldest personality typing system meets the ancient form of belly dance, you can more easily tune into the vibration of your element.
