"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves."

The aim of Global TRIBE Movement Meditation is to create a creative, beautiful and safe environment which allows people to discover and become aware of their own breath, movement, sensations and reactions. The emphasis is not placed on how a person dances or moves, rather that they feel safe and supported to dance & move in any way they choose ( NOBODY IS WATCHING YOU ) As their dance and movement unfolds they are able to witness various aspects of their own mind and reactions in relationship to the musics various rhythms. As the dance comes into its own completion the individual is naturally drawn into stillness where attention is directed to observing the mind and awareness of the breath. In this space the individual has the opportunity to discover and experience the infinite and vast relationship of silence, connection and spirit. Spirit in this sense is not defined by any religion or belief but rather by personal experience in the moment.
