The Tantric Dance of Feminine Power





The Tantric Dance of Feminine Power ™ is a devotional moving meditation originated by Vajra Ma and is the core lineage practice of her mystery school Woman Mysteries of the Ancient Future Sisterhood. This spontaneous yet highly focused practice connects us to the wisdom of the subtle energies of the body through constant presence to sensation, natural breath, heart-opening devotion and reverence to Goddess. Prior dance experience is not necessary. The work itself is not aerobic but it is "high energy" in terms of internal focus and exploration. We work specifically with the infinite resource of our feminine bodies which includes deep inquiry and feeling into the power source and intelligence of our wombs. The movement is not codified, yet very specific guidelines are introduced to keep the experience internally referenced rather than  outwardly defined. This is a powerful re-orientation for women today.

This in depth movement modality connects us to the subtle energies of the body. By cultivating deep surrender and sensitivity to the sensations and impulses always present within us we begin to follow these sensations back to their source. That source is Shakti, the tremoring, alive, wisdom movement of the cosmos. Shakti is both immanent and transcendent. By resting deeply in the subtle movement of Shakti we are able to dissolve deep habitual patterns held in body and mind. This moves us beyond self- expression into the realm of "wisdom". Surrendering to the "wisdom impulses" of the subtle body is like salt dissolving into the ocean, becoming one. This ocean lies within your body, held in the sacred waters of Womb. Moving beyond concepts, the Dance teaches us viscerally what it means to embody the Goddess, to be in our Power and experience the Bliss of the Mother. This Bliss is not dependent upon any external factors, or sense of "other" but inherent in woman's capacity to feel pleasure from her own receptivity and union with the subtle energies which are considered the Goddess Herself. A woman's deepest desires and pleasures are beyond measure when freed from the "patriarchal gaze". It is this freedom that relieves us from making fear-based choices to making choices that vibrate and resonate with our well developed subtle body, born of trust, compassion, reverence and receptivity.  


 The Tantric Dance of Feminine Power also helps us explore our relationship to our own sexuality and life force. Releasing the patriarchal lens on our sexuality is a powerful experience and crucial for the transformation towards a life affirming planet. This is not done through sexual intimacy techniques in this tr adition but through very deep communion and exploration in how this energy expands, circulates and expresses itself through the nadi's, pathways and central channel of our bodies.
