Tibetan Contemplative Dance
with Dr Cindy Faulkner
The Dance of the Six Spaces is related with the Dzogchen Atiyoga Teachings in Tibetan Buddhism. In the Dzogchen teachings, sound and movement are very important because they are the means to integrate oneself into the state of contemplation. The Dance is principally a means to harmonise the energy of the individual. If one has a more profound knowledge of the meaning of the Dance, it becomes a method for integrating the three experiences of body, voice and mind into knowledge of the state of contemplation. This integration is one of the most important aims of a Dzogchen practitioner. The Vajra Dance is practised on a Mandala which represents the correspondence between the internal dimension of the individual and the outer dimension of the world.
