Project Description

Dancemeditation followed by tea, a reading or two from Dunya’s new book, conversation, and book signing.

Dancemeditation™ is both solace and stability. More important, it answers the necessity of entering our Creative Unfolding now. We will focus on a few simple, rich moving meditations to sink down a couple of notches inside the self, touching Self, followed by time to move on our own, digesting and integrating the openings. Without words, with beautiful music, with eyes open or closed, in the continual flow of breath awareness, we move through the crust of harried worries and into our huge spiritual intelligence — the powerful Dancemeditation™ process of Relaxation, Receptivity, Reciprocity and Rest.

Meditations include: Breath Dances, Rocking, Sufi Hand Dances, Deep State Movement Meditations, Veil Companion, Vibration & Wave Form Motion, Deep Rest.

I noticed how much I lean into your presence and anchor, Dunya, to find the courage to be alone with myself, to venture into my inner world. If it weren’t for your commitment to this work, I would have missed out on knowing the depths of myself and feeling the intimacy of being present. I would have skimmed the surface of so many moments, afraid of the void, the pain, the vastness of everything. I feel I can trust the authenticity of your movements and your expressive soul. Because I know you are there, I dare to be here.

G. M., psychotherapist

The continuous flow took me deep within. I experienced myself from the inside out. Time stopped. It seemed like we had just begun when you said it was time to ‘rest.’ I actually checked my watch because I couldn’t fathom that so much time had passed.
