Time-out seminar day II
“The Call of the Drums” – A Ritual Day with Trance Dance and Trance Drums
Seminar day to (re-)discover the power of visions in a ritual of several hours with trance dance carried by the large circle of shamanic drums.

Sat., 10 October 2020 – 11.00 – approx. 19.30 hours
Seminar Coach: Sabine Rittner
Location: Heidelberg


“The state of trance is a possibility of experience created in man. Trance is the biological door to the other, sacred reality.
Dr. Felicitas D. Goodman


On this seminar day you can immerse yourself for many hours in the wordless resonance space of the drumming pulsating community. In a ritualized, safe space, you will listen to the evenly pulsing sound of the drums and experience what they have to tell you, where they want to lead you. In the trance dance in the middle of the powerful circle of drums, you are free to dance, to follow your call, to inspire, to let yourself move. In this way you will allow your visions to show themselves, find them (again), follow them, explore them and embody them in the flesh by dancing.

In a shamanic ritual with a “ritual posture” according to Felicitas Goodman, accompanied by many drums, you can then go on a journey lying down.

Drum-trance-dance is probably the oldest ritual of mankind to get into changed states of consciousness. Research shows that ecstatic trance rituals offer our brain excellent creative possibilities to abandon old evaluation patterns and concepts, to “learn”, so to speak, in order to create space for visions and embodied new pathways (embodiment)¹. We will make use of this potential on this day.


“Trance is a state of
Mindfulness that only sets in,
if you stay out of your way and
fall down into your true self, so
deep that something inside clicks
and you’ll be and witness being at the same time.”
Gabriele Roth


The seminar is suitable for you, if you want to replenish joy, creativity, wildness and strength in the collective ecstasy of drumming and dancing. You can get surprising answers to a deep request you have made. Inspirations for completely different ways of healing can be shown to you. The seminar is aimed at you if you have an interest in self-awareness, if you want to open up resources within yourself again. So you can take new strength, inspiration and impulses for healing change processes into your personal everyday life.

Methods:

  • Trance dance and trance drums under Community protection and
  • a “ritual posture” of shamanic origin accompanied by many drums according to Felicitas Goodman.

Very little will be spoken, instead we let our breath, our voice, our body, our movements “speak”. We use creative means of expression (sounding, painting, writing) and at the end also the exchange in small groups to give shape to our experiences, to process them and to integrate them.

Previous knowledge is not required. This day is suitable for beginners as well as for experienced participants. You can bring your own frame drum, but there are also enough drums for everyone.
