“Participating in a Trance Dance gives the opportunity to connect more clearly with your heart,” says Alec Davis, facilitator of the Trance Dance events. “All of us spend a great deal of time in our rational mind; this is the chance to really listen to our heart versus our head.”
Trance Dance is a unique blend of body movement, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana - together stimulating a 'trance' state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity, physical stamina and emotional well-being. Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an 'inner journey' not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years.

"Feeling freedom and then connection with the universe at Trance Dance was uplifting and helped me find peace in this busy world that can take up far too much of our time and energy. During the remarkable time, I was able to focus on my breathing and let the rhythms flow through me. I heard many positive affirmations such as, "I am light", "I am life", "No more fears" and single words such as "peace", "joy", and "open". I was able to go inside myself, feel comfortable, and then be inspired. I hope everyone will make the time to enjoy such meaningful encounters by joining Alec for his next Trance Dance."
