The role of the Chakra system is to help regulate the human energy field, commonly known as the aura. The aura is a dynamic, energetic matrix, which includes the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of our being. Just as blood pulses through our veins and arteries, there is an energy that surges through not only our bodies, but into our energy field beyond the body. Every human being has seven major Chakras and each one influences an aspect of our lives. From our instincts, sexuality and personal power through to how we love, communicate, use our intuition and connect to our deepest source of spirituality.
In a candlelit room we move to music created to resonate with the vibrations of each of our 7 major Chakras. We dance with our eyes mainly closed, and our attention turned inwards, unlike most other dance practices, Chakradance is about making a connection with our inner world – the world of our imagination, feelings, intuition and senses.
Each dance gives rise to different insights and feelings. Chakradance is an opportunity to let go through movement and creativity, releasing anything that is blocking you from being your true, vital self. Each dance leads us closer to the person we are truly meant to be.
Linzi's Experience: "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"
Danni's Experience: "Jacquie's Chakradance workshop was a wonderful new experience. For me, it was feeling the music that made it fun and an enjoyable way of connecting mind and body. It was easy to relax during Chakradance due to Jacquie's calm way of teaching. It really helped me to understand the Chakra's and the significance of each one. I felt great after doing it and will be doing it with Jacquie again. I hope to gain a more relaxed nature by doing Chakradance and connecting to my inner self."
Sharlene's experience: "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!"

Nina's experience: "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)."
We have come to be danced Not the pretty dance Not the pretty pretty, pick me, pick me dance But the claw our way back into the belly Of the sacred, sensual animal dance The unhinged, unplugged, cat is out of its box dance The holding the precious moment in the palms Of our hands and feet dance.
We have come to be danced Not the jiffy booby, shake your booty for him dance But the wring the sadness from our skin dance The blow the chip off our shoulder dance. The slap the apology from our posture dance.
We have come to be danced Not the monkey see, monkey do dance One two dance like you One two three, dance like me dance but the grave robber, tomb stalker Tearing scabs and scars open dance The rub the rhythm raw against our soul dance.
We have come to be danced Not the nice, invisible, self-conscious shuffle But the matted hair flying, voodoo mama Shaman shakin’ ancient bones dance The strip us from our casings, return our wings Sharpen our claws and tongues dance The shed dead cells and slip into The luminous skin of love dance.
We have come to be danced Not the hold our breath and wallow in the shallow end of the floor dance But the meeting of the trinity, the body breath and beat dance The shout hallelujah from the top of our thighs dance The mother may I? Yes you may take 10 giant leaps dance The olly olly oxen free free free dance The everyone can come to our heaven dance.
We have come to be danced Where the kingdom’s collide In the cathedral of flesh To burn back into the light To unravel, to play, to fly, to pray To root in skin sanctuary We have come to be danced
