Biodanza Summer Festival

Thursday 1st – Sunday 4th August 2024

The 16th International Biodanza Festival with Niraj and friends can be glimpsed just over the horizon.

In early August, the height of Summer with long, sunny days and evenings (come on, we deserve it!)

Joyfully reconnect to our extensive tribe of dancers at our beloved annual gathering

It is time to gather again in the Dorset countryside for some

~ Contact, Caresses, Embraces, Movement, Dance, Expression, Feeling, Emotion, Community, Love, Eroticism, Playfulness, Fun ~

So come and replenish yourself at the home of soul revival in the UK, the incomparable Osho Leela!

Superb food, fresh air, beautiful people, amazing music in wall to wall vivencias and of course, a wild dress-up party night, will make this event the highlight of your summer!

Stay tuned …. more info soon!

An invite from Niraj…

This year I’m delighted to welcome dear old friend and peer Ruth Strupinski, Co-director of the London School of Biodanza and ‘keeper of the flame’ for Biodanza in the capital for so many years back to the teaching team! ☺️ It will be a poignant moment, as she only ever taught here with beloved colleague Pip Kennan, whom we so sadly lost last year. 😓

Also returning (from 2022) is Yamil Yasa (Uruguay), a fellow globe-trotting ambassador for Biodanza and beautiful, genuine, sweet, masculine soul.

Very regular contributors to festivities over the years and also dear and respected friends, Richard Golsworthy (Scot) and the inimitable, irrepressible Milarepa (Dorset!) will be back too sharing their expertise, creativity and fun, (above all fun), with us all!

(Two more teachers to be confirmed in the coming weeks)

You can expect all the usual goodies this longstanding event supplies, delicious food, fresh air, stunning grounds, a phone-free environment for 3 days (a what??? 🤔), a hugely convivial atmosphere, dance, celebration, Improv comedy, bonfire, sauna, friendship, togetherness, belonging, intimacy, expansion, camaraderie, pleasure, happiness, the bar, Coffee Shop and a right old knees up on the last night!

Niraj leads the Dorset School of Biodanza and is skilled at opening people to many aspects of Tantra such as sensitivity, sensuality, touch, affection and transcendence. Using the medium of Biodanza, a series of dance, movements and exercises that create space for a deep experience within oneself and with others. Each workshop is led as a vivencia, a space in which words are dropped and the deep wisdom of the body is entered.

He also has specialisation certificates to teach Biodanza and the Four Elements, Biodanza in Nature, Biodanza and Shamanism, AquaBiodanza, Biodanza for Children, Biodanza and Massage, Contact Education, The Heart of Transformation, the Minotaur Project and the Argonaut Mission.
