Ahava and Blessings!
Ahava Sacred Dance was a creation born through my Dance Prayers for Mary Magdalene. When I first started channeling Mary Magdalene I knew in my heart that Dance, Chanting and Drumming was the essential practice that guided me to embody all of her teachings. The more I developed the practice, the more Mary Magdalene helped me channel and connect to different light beings who are a part of he Spiral of the Rosa Mística, which is the Wheel of Mary Magdalene that we follow in our Priestess Trainings.
Ahava Sacred Dance® is a holistic dance practise for women which activates, celebrates and honours the channel of pure life force known as Shakti. Shakti is the personification of the Divine Feminine Energy which animates all living things. Unifying Sacred and Ancestral Dances from different cultures, Intuitive Movement, Mantric Choreography, Sacred Sounds, Tantric Healing, Drum and Voice expression, and various applications of Spirituality and Psychology, we embark on a journey to search for our ancestral roots, to the connection with our divine channel of life, to the resurgence and the veneration of the Sacred Feminine and to the birth of a new Consciousness with roots in our hearts.
Ahava Sacred Dance® helps us remember those things that can never be put into words. It is designed to feel how the body and movement are a portal to remembering, to feel how our perspective shifts from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred. Dance becomes our spiritual practise.
Dance is the language of the soul. Done with awareness and intention it is a moving meditation that expresses our authenticity and helps us to re-discover ourselves, revealing mysteries of our psyche and our connection to the Source. Ahava Sacred Dance® is a dance from the inside out. We learn to connect first with our true essence, with our soul, and then remove the external. This helps us to move through life with more empowerment, staying true to who we are. In this Dance Practice we activate all the infinite expressions of the Feminine Incarnation. We also activate and balance the chakras on an energetic, emotional, physical and spiritual level.
The Feminine is the energy that encompasses everything that is ALL and manifested in life itself, and all this energy can be found in our womb, the space filled with infinite possibilities that connects us with God / Goddess. Purifying and activating its power, this sacred space becomes Holy. Living in Shakti is a philosophy of life, it is honouring and savouring life itself in every moment. It means understanding that everything, every act, every thought, affects the whole. It also means that we allow life to speak to us.
The Word Ahava means love in the Hebrew Biblical language. Love in the sense of giving, of being in constant service. Also Love in a sense of Longing to become ONENESS. Love implies action and within this action the sense of the EGO disappears.
Ahava is the first word Mary Magdalene said to me when her presence came to me in 2011. In my research I found that this Word was made up of 3 Hebrew Letters: A (Aleph), meaning one, our relationship to the Divine and to the Divinity within us. H (Hei) meaning Grace and Gratitude. V (Beit), which is a house in which our spirit dwells, meaning that our bodies are temples of our souls and should be celebrated. This Word is of Divine Feminine Energy. GRACE. GRATITUDE. UNDONDITIONAL LOVE. EMBODIED PRESENCE. SERVICE. PATH OF LOVE.
