In this workshop we honour nature with our movement, dance, voice and touch. We seek to align with the symbolic meaning of one of the stages of our annual cycle. Summer brings us the triumph of light and the fertility of the earth. At this time of year we can focus on the fruits of our inner light, on overcoming and transforming our dark parts, and on invoking and celebrating abundance and fulfilment in our lives. This experiential dance workshop is an invitation for participants to connect with nature, each other and themselves through mindfulness, silence, music, visualisation, relaxation, massage, movement and dance through ritual sensuality.

Maria Keck is a dancer, choreographer, dance teacher, singer and therapist. She is involved in a variety of musical and performing arts activities: she leads regular and intensive dance classes, women's groups, sound baths and sound massages. Her methodology is a combination of intuition, study and experience: dance techniques, body awareness, improvisation, relaxation, visualisation, breath work, attention, yoga, therapeutic massage, sound training, rhythmic exercises, intuitive singing exercises and sound therapy.
