THERAPEUTIC DANCE JOURNEYS &
SHADOW WORK FOR WOMEN
“She isn’t just rising she is risen, she has broken through the layers of dysfunction that had her imprisoned. She is woman who made a conscious choice to breath into herself, to honour and value her feminine wealth. she met with the spaces within herself that had been suppressed, rejected, neglected, She found strength in the deepest of inner pain, so much wisdom and growth gained from the spaces that once had her confined, bind, she had been blind to her infinite divine potential.
She met these shadowed aspects honestly devoted to her own self proclaimed prophecy to heal and transmute all that no longer served her being, to connect to her true self and allow her essence to beam, to truly be seen,expressing all aspects of her diverse in-depth nature, she was no longer a stranger to her truth. From the pain of her youth she emerged with great strength and self assured knowings, with the intention to continue growing deeper into her unique essence, deeper into self aware presence She became who she is inside, she broke through the conditioned ties of illusion misperception, connecting to her own idea of perfection.
Perfection being the truth and rawness of her every moment expression. She left the unkind cycle behind that had her believing she was not enough in the unique-ity of her being. She became free. She danced with her newly found sovereignty She is strong in her will, and truthful with her word, compassion and acceptance radiate through her. she vibrates on a frequency of compassionate love for others, she is an honest guiding light for her community of sisters and brothers. maternal grace exuding form her inner space. She loves deeply, with acceptance of the pain that may come, she is not afraid of being hurt, because she knows her worth and her ability to rise tall through every fall with new insight to the depth of her soul.
She realised any form of rejection is a simple redirection laced with a powerful lesson to guide her to a deeper truth. She rides the waves of expansion with trust and willing embrace, should she fall from grace or find herself in a stagnant place she knows she will always rise with stronger height, with broken wings she will still fly , she will continue to invite these inner challenges with intention to grow, dancing with all she has sewn. Worthy is she to thrive in this journey that is her life.”
Maanee Chrystal is devoted to creating a pathway for women who long to embody their authentic feminine nature and expression.
She is a Holistic Psychotherapist, Tantra teacher empowered by Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, Embodiment/Dance therapist and an Erotic, Indian, Contemporary, Belly dancer and Contact Improvisation dance teacher.
Through her life experience, dance & educational training, Maanee weaves these elements together facilitating
workshops, rituals, teacher trainings and private sessions on feminine embodiment and shadow work through out Australia, Thailand, Bali & India on a yearly basis.
The foundation of Maanee’s work with women is a grounded and holistic, in depth exploration into reclaiming and remembering our innocence and freedom as a woman.
Our innocence being our authentic expression that is free from social, cultural and family expectations and conditioning of what it is to be a woman. Our negative patterns and limiting beliefs of unworthiness, fears, projections into the past and future, self doubt, blame, victim hood, pride, shame, lust, insecurities, and the relentless quest and need for others acceptance, validation and approval.
Our freedom being totally accepting, loving and finding meaning within all these facets of our human suffering with out identifying to them as our true self and using our shadow as a pathway to the light of our being
Together we inquire into our lack of self worth and insecurities to become aware of how this manifests as our masks and personas in our daily life and relationships to seek validation and approval from others. To become aware of how this takes us away from expressing our truth, vulnerability and authenticity.
Through this inquiry we will discover our hidden potential and inner strength to feel safe enough to walk our truth and authenticity free from the wounding of our past and the expectations we place upon ourself to be in a certain way for others to accept us.
We explore the collective repressed sexual and sensual expression of the feminine and how to reconnect back into our natural, free flowing orgasmic state of creativity and wild femininity.
We will discover how to let go of the control of our mind and numbing ourself from truly feeling everything through therapeutic dance and embodiment practices. Finally allowing the connection to our body, yoni ( vagina) and heart to act as our medicine for the unmet, the un-held, and the un-integrated to return home into your awakened, unashamed, authentic feminine expression.
Maanee will encourage you to look beyond your conditioned way of being and enter into a fearless Self-exploration. By removing your perfectionist masks, shedding light on your projections and the subtle competition and threat felt towards other women in order to heal the wounds of the feminine, embrace your insecurities and learn to adore and embody the full spectrum of your authentic feminine expression.
The intention of her offering is for this to be realized inwardly as the autonomous power of Self Love
