Awaken Your Creativity: Kick-start
This Dance Meditation event helps you unlock explosive creativity within you. Making your life and work:
- More delightful
- More beautiful
- More intelligent
- More joyous
And yes, definitely a little more crazy and fun.
Combined with meditative techniques, dance becomes a great transformational force. One that dissolves creative blocks, fires up your imagination, puts you back in touch with your feelings, and gets that creative flow gushing through you again.
Your loved ones will notice a growing sense of creative playfulness, celebration, and ease around you: in your professional work, your personal life, and in your self-awareness.
But all that is secondary. If you go deep, dance is the most direct path with which you may experience a sense of ecstatic liberation, and get that priceless taste of bliss and freedom.
This is the 10th Meditation event since 2016 in the ‘Awaken’ Series conducted by Niyam. Not counting the free and online meditations conducted for participants from all over the world, over two years of the pandemic from Mar 2020 till Jul 2021. Some of those online meditations were daily, others over weekends.
Here’s a collage of the 9 previous ‘Awaken’ Meditation events conducted offline and in person by Niyam since 2016:
A few of the techniques of meditation used here are from ‘Awaken Your Creativity Through Design-Think‘ which is a 4-day/3-nights Meditation and Design Retreat. Conducted earlier in July 2019, that has been a mind-blowing experience for participants. Take a look at the photo below and get a glimpse of it here.
Ok, let’s get to the next question:
Who Is Ma Bhagwati
“Now dance is a meditation for me,” says Ma Prem Bhagwati, who has devoted her entire life to learning and teaching Kathak dance. Hidden in that sentence are the blessings of her two main Gurus. The first is the world-renowned Padma Bhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj jee, whom she discovered at age 11 and who finally accepted her a few years later as her disciple in 1999. And the other is Osho, who, starting through an Osho meditation camp in 2008, melted the decades of her dance rigor into meditation. Ma Bhagwati migrated to the USA in 2018 where she continues to teach Kathak. More about how Ma Bhagwati dissolves into meditation through dance, here. Right now, she is among us on Indian soil for a short visit, and ready to welcome you to the wooden dance floor of our Dance Meditation event in New Delhi
