What we're about

Biodanza means the dance of life. It is a science-based process of human development. Meaningful movement to music is used to trigger integrative experiences that help us to develop our potentials and rediscover the joy of living. It's not easy to describe the process, you really have to come along and experience it for yourself!

It started in South America in the 1960s and it has now spread around the globe. There are no steps to learn and the music is infectious. It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities as each session is taken at your own pace.

Most facilitators hire a hall and offer sessions to the general public. However, Biodanza is also applied in educational, health and community care settings as an educational, therapeutic and/or socially engaged process.

Biodanza workshop in Bristol

St. Michael's Primary School Hall

You are warmly invited to dance your way into a sense of peacefulness. FFI about this workshop please follow the link https://bit.ly/30ySLDO Thank you. Do get in touch and ask all the questions you may have – that’s what I’m here for. Or email me on [masked] If you have any friends who would like to try Biodanza but feel reluctant to commit 5 hours to something they´re not sure they will like, 1st timers and beginners are welcome to only attend the first session (11am-1pm) for half price. Do bring a snack or something simple to share during the lunch break (1pm). We are a friendly bunch and would love you to join us. Investment Super early-bird £30 until 15th May Early-bird £35 until 20th May £40 on the door (26th May) Email [masked] for payment details. I´m also offering an extra savings deal for those who book 2 consecutive workshops in advance for £50 - making them £25 each! The next applicable dates would be Sunday 23rd June Sunday 28th July. Let´s dance! Location If you haven’t been at St Michael’s Primary School Hall before, please allow extra time, as it can be tricky to find – located just 10 minutes from Park Street, St Michael on the Mount is easily accessible for anyone using public transport or walking. The actual school is situated just behind a very attractive church, meaning it is off the main road and is very private. A word of warning though, if driving, the lane leading into the schools car park is very long and narrow meaning only one car can fit. Parking The satnav should bring you there… the hall is up the steep narrow street Old Park Hill following Lower Church Lane, and a very narrow entrance to the right. It has space for about 15 cars, so please park responsibly. If full, the next car park is Trenchard Street car park, Bristol BS1 5AN. Which is close for a bird, but walking up the steep hill is quite something, so please allow 10 minutes for that. Getting Here By Bicycle There are four bicycle racks provided behind the ramp into the hall. In addition perimeter railings surrounding the site can be used for securing bicycles. In order to protect the fabric of the building cyclists are not permitted to bring bicycles into the Hall. By Bus The nearest bus stops are on Park Row and St Michael’s Hill – both are a 2 minute walk from the hall. On Foot Bristol City Centre is only 10 minute walk from the Parish Hall. From St Augustine’s Parade (Outside the Hippodrome) walk up Colston Street until you reach the junction with Perry Street, cross Perry Street at the Pedestrian crossing and then walk up Perry Street towards Park Row. Turn right onto old park hill and follow this up until it turns into Old Park – the Parish Hall is directly in front of you. By Car The St Michael’s Church of England Primary School is next door to the Parish Hall – It has been agreed that hirers of the hall can use their top playground for parking during evenings and weekends. This is the area of carpark behind the hall. Use of the car park is at the individuals own risk. Additional Pay and Display parking can be found on Park Row / Perry Street.

The Way of the Shaman

Needs a location

Shamanism is a way of connecting with life, which has been present in humanity since ancient times. From the Paleolithic period, we have communicated with plants and animals and have respected the cycles of nature. In Siberia shamans were spiritual leaders who gave people access to ecstatic states induced by drums, rituals, dances, and songs where they could connect with spirit guides that could help them on the path of healing and inner peace. Shamanism spread throughout Europe and America and has multiple expressions. Shamanism is timeless and universal and can always be rescued from within. We all have an inner shaman which can be awakened as we recover the connection with our internal and external nature. Shamanism is a spiritual practice that does not correspond to any religious belief. It is an ancient expression of humanity, an ancestral system of connection with the different planes of reality. In a respectful and careful way, neo-shamanism brings the possibility of this way of life to modern human beings. ​You are kindly invited to this special day workshop in the Cardiff area exploring shamanism using the Biodanza methodology. We have both trained with Miriam Lopez from Colombia and look forward to guide you through a powerful transformational journey using the power of movement, music, sound, meditation, and more. If you have have any queries please call Gail Stewart on[masked] or email me on [masked] Venue: The Marion Centre, Rookwood Close, Llandaff, Cardiff, CF5 2NR Start and finish times: 11am to 5pm TBC Watch this space as more information will be added soon!
