Being busy...

In this modern, speed driven, instantaneous expectation world, the pace to keep up keeps getting faster.

The modern age hinges on the principle that things are improving and accelerating. Has this pull to do more, schedule more, hustle, and go go go left you feeling exhausted?

Has 24/7 become a trapping from which we miss the natural ebb and flow of work then rest, movement then stillness, action then being?  

In this workshop combining dance, the chakra energy system, guided meditation and creative exploration, rediscover the balance between moving and being. How BEING and becoming still can become not only the antidote, but also the source of unlimited potential for all of your endeavors.

LÎLA (pronounced LEE-lah and meaning Divine Play in Sanskrit) is a revolutionary process created by Kristen Mangione, combining elements of Dance Alchemy© - movement improvisation, meditation, creative play, healing principles and the Chakra energy system – for profound discovery and transformation.

Dance experience is not required. Suited for anyone interested in self development and awareness through body mind practices (such as dance, meditation, yoga and
the healing arts).

Eastern Philosophy believes the 7 major energy centers in the body govern, balance and direct the path of our unique life's destiny. Childhood conditioning, unconscious limiting beliefs, cultural conditioning, habits as well as our day to day living can dramatically impact the degree to which each chakra, and more importantly its function, is working in balance and most effectively.

This 8 session course will include a weekly class with visually guided meditations, developmental movement, dance, and energy awareness to create an embodiment experience of healing and re balancing each chakra in the system.

Course includes reading materials, journaling to integrate weekly progress and processing, healing crystals to be used both in and outside of the course, as well as a supportive community within the class to share, discover and flourish inside this exploration into the deepest roots of ourselves and highest Self.

Dance experience is not required. Suited for anyone interested in self development and awareness through body mind practices (such as dance, meditation, yoga, healing arts).

What is LÎLA?

  • LÎLA  (Pronounced LEE-lah and translated as Divine Play in Sanskrit) and is a revolutionary process created by Kristen Mangione

  • It combines guided dance improvisation with meditation visualizations, energy awareness and  creative embodiment experiences based on the philosophies of the ancient Indian chakra system as well as Western physiological development.

  • Grounded in the physicality of the body, it works on multiple levels with the brain and sensory awareness. This is done through verbally guided experiences that use visual imagery, metaphor, and awareness of specific areas of the body.

  • It draws on the practice of shifting the brain’s awareness from the hyperactive, intellect into a deeper consciousness, sensory-based experience, so that the Parasympathetic Nervous System and healing responses are activated.

  • Emphasis is based on experiential inquiry and play. Learning is through discovery.

  • Participants have experienced results including increased positive emotions such as joy and compassion, as well as healing release of grief, sadness and apathy.  Increased self confidence, feeling more secure, enhanced intuition and ability to better communicate include just some of the other benefits.

  •  Open to both those with and without dance experience.
