Classes in Glastonbury
and in South London
every month beginning on January 2020
Join us and learn "Pizzica", the trance dance from southern Italy played to heal the "Tarantate", women who worked the fields for tobacco harvest who were bitten by a spider “the tarantola”, and driven crazy.
For centuries, the rite of the tarantula was the only cure for those 'possessed' by the mythical Black Widow spider poisonous bite, from which only a relentless dance was able to heal.
Taranta marks the origin of many of the modern therapeutic dances and healing music that are used for releasing emotions and grounding the body and the mind.
Porto Selvaggio - Italy
September -October 2020
Saviour the southern Italian coastline next to the lush Porto Selvaggio natural regional park, a powerful sacred energetic place.
Eat alfresco, delicious healthy vegetarian food while looking at the stars, enjoy the zen journey through the pine forest, and breathe in the aromatherapy of the mediterranean plants including myrtle, lentisk, wild broom, carob tree, wild olives, and rock rose.
As you exit the forest you can take a swim into the healing waters of the magical bay and soak up the warmth of the sun, allowing your mind and body to unwind, relax and re-energise.
Complete your day eye gazing at the spectacular orange, purple, pink and yellow colours of the sky as the sun sets on the horizon.
There are also many beautiful areas to visit, from quaint coastal villages, to the beautiful “baroque” city of Lecce, also renowned as the “Florence of the south”.
Experience “Pizzica” a traditional dance therapy, famous in this region of Italy.
Pizzica is actually a powerful trance dance very effective to release stress and enhance wellbeing. It has become very popular in Italy due to the festival called "La Notte della Taranta" that takes place in Puglia every summer since June to the end of August.
In every town, since the beginning of Spring to the end of Autumn, due to the very nice climate of the area, there are plenty of concerts, most of them are free, that take place in this beautiful Mediterranean area of southern Italy named "Salento".
Join our next blissful retreat in Salento, each day we will journey through a variety of movements, healing touch, walks in nature, swimming in the cristalline blue sea, healthy food, sharing and support and most of all... loving and dancing!
