I am a devoted student of the form of consciousness known as innerdance. Innerdance has been in my life for 4 years and in this last 12 months, I have turned my heart fully towards my studies and practice through immersive and intensive study with Pi the founder and with the global community of co-founders who are my innerdance family. My understanding of and languaging of innerdance is deeply rooted in the transformational experiences I continue to have and also through the scientific study and research I co-participate in. I now run Innerdance Scotland© which is my way to promote and support the form and practice of innerdance in Scotland and beyond.
Innerdance isn't dancing as you know it. It is an eyes closed, lying down journey where the dance is internal with cosmic possibilities. It is a powerful consciousness practice which I am honoured to hold space for.
Founded by Pi in the Philippines, innerdance is now a global practice which is being integrated into educational curriculums ,in health care settings, prisons and during births. Several innerdance babies have been born these last few weeks .
With a carefully curated homemade playlist I create, designed to harmonise the electricity and magnetism within the body, purposefully organised to stimulate brain waves with intention to cloud the linear, reductive view, the brain can experience it's fuller potential as each lobe is awoken, enabling a generalised spread of electricity which repatterns the autonomic nervous system and can bring us back to unity, similar to that of the newborn baby where there is no separation (this happened to me and I had to go through the developmental tasks of baby to grow up, I am still in this process) Intuitive touch is offered as a stimulus to deepen and support your journey.
The process mimics an 8 hour REM sleep cycle with experiences similar to lucid dreaming. You may experience synesthesia, imagery, emotion, sensation, release, time changes, impulse to move or sound.
Many people feel a strong impulse to move, or sound out and this is welcomed and supported. You are invited to trust and allow the innate wisdom of the body to express itself in movement. Others sink deep into trance states and rest in sacred stillness as they journey, perhaps for the whole session. Every time is different and the experience varies with the individual. The innerdance continues after the soundscape ends and you may experience vivid dreams, grief as old stories fall away, clarity and transformation.
I am a trained innerdance facilitator and I offer individual, private innerdance sessions at my home space and group sessions in Dundee, throughout the UK and online.
Innerdance is a way of life for me and I support myself through extensive personal studies of science, philosphy, the arts etc, ongoing intensive studies with Pi and by having sometimes daily and/or weekly innerdances of my own.
Please contact me for information on this powerful practice and to find out about upcoming events or if you would like me to visit your locality to hold timespace for innerdance, I will be delighted to accept your invitation.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
During Caroline’s Inner Dance workshop we were encouraged to feel safe and held - supported to explore our inner selves through the means of sound, music and touch.
Caroline has a kindness and warmth which is perfectly suited to group work of a healing and emotional nature. She has wisdom yet is humble and approachable - ensuring the participants in her groups are able to express themselves freely and to ask open and honest questions.
I would highly recommend Caroline’s group work for anyone seeking to heal, to find out more about themselves and to push their edges.
Just took part in an innerdance workshop last night led by Caroline. It was amazing. We took a journey through wave motions of different sounds and music, some soothing, some jarring. This was to work with your autonomic nervous system to realight it to a more natural system. I rediscovered my hips and womanly earthly movements. I felt such joy and peace. Not everyone has the same journey, it will be where ever you are in your journey. I highly recommend this workshop. Thank you Caroline.
Thank you so much for facilitating this wonderful journey. I loved the initial meditation and the way you held space before and after the session. The playlist worked a treat. Highly recommended! Thanks for your very generous and full of love offering! With immense gratitude in my heart!
