Deepening Course in Dance of the Song of the Vajra
May 22 – 24, 2015
With Bodhi Krause, authorized Vajra Dance instructor
In the Dzogchen teaching, sound and movement are very important because they are the means to integrate oneself into the state of contemplation. The Vajra Dance is principally a practice to harmonize 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 existences of body, voice and mind into the knowledge of the state of contemplation. This integration is one of the most important aims of a Dzogchen practitioner. The Vajra Dance is practiced on a Mandala which represents the correspondence between the internal dimension of the individual and the outer dimension of the world. The Vajra Dance was introduced by Dzogchen Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in 1990, and has been practiced since then in various places and centers of the Dzogchen Community around the world.
