Healing Tango is the Art of Moving into Unity
Tango as a practical path for Spiritual embodiment.
The dancefloor as a laboratory for Transformation.
A way for finding inner and outer leadership, and restoring the balance between Masculine and Feminine Principles within ourselves, and in relating on all levels.
Being Present in the Heart of the Experience…
Lizelot de Stigter
Lizelot de Stigter, dancer, teacher Argentinian Tango, and mystic, discovered Rumi at the age of 14 who inspired her on the path of Unity, Truth, and Love.
In her search for balancing the inner reality of the deep knowing of our pure Being with the body-mind and the world, she discovered the very same universal principles as described in the old (Tantric and Vedantic) Yoga traditions. From these insights she created unique movement meditations for the purpose of (re-)aligning the body-mind with our Essence. The simple movements are like a sacred dance washing away old patterns and conditioning stored in the body, making the body more and more transparent and free.
The movements purify and align our vertical axis, which represents the “I Am” , and bring balance in the relative domain represented in the horizontal plane where we relate and come into expression in the world. The more our body is aligned in the vertical axis, the more clarity occurs around us.
