Interview with Natalie Southgate
- Founder of Chakradance -
& Jacquie Shenton
- Facilitator -
"My Chakradance journey has been a truly amazing experience and hands down the best birthday present ever!
The opportunity to explore each Chakra through music, dance, movement and art has a hugely positive impact on my happiness, well-being, mental health and many area's of my life.
Taking time to explore different Chakras/areas of my life has provided a great structure to recognize emotions, blocks, issues and strengths and solutions how they effect my life and relationships, in a way that felt manageable, progressive, positive and holistic.
Ultimately it is the expert facilitation, by Jacquie Shenton that makes the course something that I recommend most highly.
Her attention to detail made me feel very looked after and the way in which she created and held a safe and sacred space, allowed me to explore even difficult feelings in a positive way. She manages to challenge you in such a very gentle way, which has led me to learn and discover more about myself.
It has been an absolute luxury to attend every week and has truly felt like the ultimate pampering, with dedicated time and space to focus on myself and my own development.
I also love that movement can express so much more than words, bring around self awareness, be an intensely spiritual experience, a deeper form of self expression, good for you and also just great fun.
I am sure that at whatever level you are working on, on your journey that Chakradance has many things to offer you. I am looking forward to experiencing this course again in the future as I am sure it will be a new and very different experience after I have integrated and developed from everything I have learnt on this journey.
Thank you Jacquie"
"I have been 'dancing' with Jacquie on a one to one basis for 6 months now and I truly love it! Jacquie radiates positive energy and a bright light which kind of reflects on you......Without realizing (other people tell me), I have grown through Chakradance from a scared, doubtful and lost little girl to a stronger, open and more loving woman. Physically, I feel more energetic every day, I feel wonderful vibrations coursing through me, I don't feel 'stuck' anymore and most importantly I have found true kindness and compassion for myself (so important on so many levels)."
"The workshop I attended was really great. I loved it and felt very held during the session. Afterwards, I left feeling inspired and enlivened. It was an opportunity to go into my pain but also to feel my light. It definitely helped me shift some energy and feel more of who I am. Thank you :) I really enjoyed drawing the mandalas and then coming together as a group at the end to listen to and share each of our journeys. It felt like a really good way of processing and consolidating all that happened for me in the session. I appreciated the structure and being able to have something very solid to take away with me. I now can't wait for the next one!"
"I’ve been going to Jacquie’s Chakradance classes for almost a year now and the welcoming and healing atmosphere that Jacquie manages to create around every class is amazing. Her warmth and love spill out of her and she makes me feel safe and supported. The dance itself is out of this world. Each person’s experience is unique. For me, I go on a journey, which is different each time and I gain the knowledge that I need and the healing that I seek. The atmosphere, the shared energy, the pulsating harmony of the music and Jacquie’s voice leading me through the dance makes me feel free and powerful and ethereal and safe. I always leave feeling uplifted, serene, enlightened and loved. It’s a magical experience that always gives me great gifts. I can’t recommend it highly enough."
Over an intensive but flexible 10 days (allow roughly half-an-hour per day), I will be facilitating you through some powerful practices and techniques to help you listen to your body and truly attend to its deep wisdom.
We will be connecting with your power animal, and introducing you to mantra and mantra-dance for the Base Chakra.
