What is innerdance?

     Humbly welcome to a deeply transformative process of awakening.

     A Philippino mystic by the name of Pi Villaraza, began this process through a Kundalini awakening when he was abiding on a coconut diet as a hermit on a secluded island for two years.

    The innerdance is an energetic process where the participants are invited to lay down in sivasana, the traditional yoga posture at the end of a class… and yet, this is where the innerdance begins. From here, there’s nothing you need to do or be in a prescribed way.  The innerdance energy will lead us from there in an unique journey.

    Working with brain waves via sound, the journeys begin with a deep surrender to being held in a container of the sacred. As deeper trust comes in, persons enter into expanded states of consciousness where much comes in and arises. People experience life reviews, energetic awakenings, informational downloads, neurogenic tremors, rebirth, self-healing, and insights are amongst some ideas of what is possible. As much as you can let go into the flow of the process, you can experience whatever is ready to be looked at in that ‘now’

    The process branches into, with, and across philosophy, physics, psychology, mysticism, neuroscience, ecology, spirituality, nutrition, and linguistics. 

    Perhaps some words from experiences will bring some further understanding…

    “For me, the innerdance represents the missing aspect of practical spirituality I was searching for to help elevate mass human consciousness above petty materialism, a universally accessible raising of awareness that can embrace the ecology of our planet. It is a potential and actual force to help us return to simplicity, basic goodness and our authentic individual beauty.” – Dr. Nick Smith, England

    “(The) innerdance to me is a conversation between my little self (the one that crosses the street and has a passport), my higher self (my built-in guardian angel) and the Divine, which is all selves and also an ocean of un-self. It is an iterative abstraction, insisting on further deconstruction, further dissolution, until what is left is not a pile of demolished parts but a glimpse at the fabric of the whole as it exists beyond ego and the projection of the personality. I think that what it can offer the world is the chance to dance with the things we have been taught by society are the most fearful: death, pain, suffering, non-existence, the void, and insanity. The chance to dance with these things gives us the chance to recognize that we are built, as human manifestations of spirit, to dance with our basic natures rather than fear them and hide from them. It is impossible not to see oneself as a reflection of the divine in this way, because when we drop into the dance we drop into the infinite, of which there are infinite manifestations, and we are special and also not-special as one of these manifestations, appearing briefly and then disappearing, a magical madness that is essentially a showcase of the pattern of being that gives us simultaneously individual and collective consciousness.” – Kelly, Vietnam

    “The experience is sacred. It launches initiates into an acceleration of spiritual development, which includes processes of purification and profound transformation.” -Troy, Philippines

    “All I could comprehend in this in-between state was that something had opened up within that allowed me to see into another dimension of myself, one that acknowledged an inner life force that had long been dormant.” -Katrina, Philippines

    “(The) innerdance is about flow, tuning in to deeper psychic, emotional and spiritual energies that exist within each of us and allowing these inner forces to move outward; it needs childlike trust, a suspension of the constant stream of mental chitchat that occupies our heads. When it happens, there is such a sense of release, of healing and coming home to one’s deepest music—personal and unique. All the layers of conventions , coping mechanisms and survival efforts simply fall away. One can touch the Core, our Original Source.” -Agnes, Philippines

    “I explored, felt, loved and experienced my body moving in ways it never had in the past. Some movements reminded me of my qigong practice but the movements went further, deeper and unraveled tension from my feet all through the fascia in my back, arms, neck and face. I felt such freedom and Joy! And I felt a new ease and freedom in my Being and movement in my body afterward. I also felt such deep, deep gratitude for my experience, the facilitators, and all the people who were there. Thank you!! And my new feeling of freedom and wellness in my body has continued since my 2nd innerdance…AND a knot I have had in my middle back ever since a car accident two years ago is gone!” -Karen, USA

    “I’ve never felt so light and ecstatic. When the twister subsided I could not contain the energy in my body prompting me to roar so loudly. Then I was making very synchronized movements with my hands just like what the ancient monks were doing while meditating. It was so powerful that I was dancing for more than two hours, later dancing like there was a baby in my arms which looked as though I was cradling and embracing … the child in me was re-born; I became a new person and was sitting at the far end, quietly full of awe and wonder.” -Marwin, Philippines
