Star Thalers are Dancing
Dances between Heaven and Earth
July 1 – 7, 2017
Cornelia Freise (Germany)
What counts is not the enormity of the task, but the magnitude of courage.
The Star Thalers is a fairy tale about a lonesome girl who sets out on a journey without any belongings except the clothes on her body and the bread in her hand. She shares both with other destitutes. In the end, she stands alone in the woods, naked but with a pure heart and a miracle happens. Stars fall from the sky as golden coins. It is the moment in which we do not hold on to anything anymore and suddenly everything is given to us. A moment of complete trust allows us to move into a dimension beyond our imagination.
To say yes even if we don´t know anything requires courage, patience and trust in the unknown. We open up and move into the empty space of our longing, naked and bare yet held by essence.
This is possible through our female power which we can sense and access in dance in a simple and easy way. The different dance steps allow us to trust the moment and to receive its gifts. The stars take a hold of us in their infinity as we dance. In this way, we too can become wondrous dancing star thalers. While dancing, we open up to the whole which is shining through our being.
We will work with dances out of the space of the heart®, free dances, meditation of the heart and dreams.
No prior dance training is required.
Each participant is herself responsible for what happens during the dance sessions.
