The training group
is conceptualized to take place on weekends. You can take part on the premises that you have a finished education in another profession, are 25 years old and took part in one weekend of introduction into the technique which serves the process of mutual getting to know each other and decision making. After this the final registration can take place with a curriculum vitae and outline of the motivation for the training group.

Method
I use sacred dances ( alignment with the vertical and horizontal planes, opening movements of different qualities) and elements of dance therapy (active imagination in dance, promotion of the expression of feelings in the body, working with certain movement archetypes from different cultural backgrounds). Dance as a healing art which embodies the 4 dimensions of the human movement experience (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) in a holistic way. “Dancing out of the space of the heart ® is an integral therapeutic approach to transformation.

We will work to develop our body as an organ of understanding, as a tool to find the truth. On the one hand this is an individual process finding our own truth; on the other hand it can be an opening for absolute truth which encloses everything and joins all the levels. This happens by developing to be in the present moment in the dance, to bring exactness and flow in harmony and as well to dive down into the archetypes which means to surrender to deeper levels of consciousness. Special importance lies in the interconnection of the inner experience and the outer expression. All of this takes part in a group of women and promotes the special consciousness of women – bringing together the sacred inner and sacred outer levels - that is needed in our time of transition

One key point of the work is to learn to deal freely with space symbols (circle, triangle, labyrinth, square, spiral etc.) which I developed myself during my dance experiences. The connection between space and ritual in dance is very important as it allows us to come closer to the questions of our personal existence in the body. Here the personal and transpersonal sphere are linked together.

In the process of the dance we generate creativity in an individual and a collective way. This is based in the belief that even nowadays dance still has a great transforming quality and that we can find answers in the dance to our everyday questions as well as to our deep longing for God. We can very easily experience the spiritual side of dance in nature. Therefore we will often dance in nature and reflect on this.

Aims
Developing a creative approach to dance as a means to express the SACRED and the therefore needed consciousness of the body. Learning and creating sacred circle dances. Dealing freely with elements of the dance-therapy. Group-building. Learning to work intuitively with music. Getting to know the theoretical background of dance-therapy and ritual dance forms.

Theoretical background
The theoretical background of this training „Dancing out of the space of the heat ® is the analytical psychology of C.G. Jung especially the knowledge of the archetypes, integration of the polarities and working with the unconscious through active imagination in dance and movement. In the area of sacred dance I use the approach developed by Bernhard Wosien and Maria-Gabriele Wosien and their theoretical implications. The concepts of Anna Halprin and Kaye Hoffman inspired my mental approach to dance.

Training plan

Leading the training:
Cornelia Freise, born in 1957, living in Bremen in northern Germany. Graduation in law, after a major shift in my life I have begun to teach sacred dance in 1986. Learning with different dance teachers. Training in Biodanza – Dance of Life 1988 –1990. Since 1992 I have worked free lance as a dance therapist (HPG). In 1996 foundation of "The dancing wild sow – Institute for transformation through dance, meditative dancing and dance therapy" in Bremen which makes available 2-year-dance-trainings „Dancing out of the space of the heart“ for people from different professional backgrounds. International workshops in California, Singapore and Estonia.
“Dancing out of the space of the heart ®” is my own approach to dance and the sacred. I am interested in the interconnection between the Sacred, dance and female consciousness, esp. between being in the body and experiencing God. The possible transformation of the individual and the whole in connection with being a mystic is very close to my heart. 2010 I published my book: Tanze! Dein Herz – weibliches Wissen in Bewegung (dance your heart – feminine wisdom in motion); 2013 published in Estonia Tantsi! oma südamest

Since 1985 I have followed the mystical path of the Golden Sufis which inspires and carries my work.
