Immerse yourself in the Afro-Brazilian tradition and the majestic splendour of Nature, with Biodanza and the 4 Elements and 16 Orixas in Lanzarote with Philippe Lenaif and live musicians!

To dance the archetypal forces of the Orixas and enter into their essence, is to awaken us to our divine nature, to nourish our connection to the whole and to experience the sacred in our bodies.

There are 4 Orixas corresponding to each of the 4 elements Earth, Fire, Air, Water and we will dance them all in stunning natural outdoor locations on the island, accompanied by traditional Afro-Brazilian percussion and songs! 

20 places max on site!

Dates: 14th-21st May 2018  

Cost: Only 799 euros full board (exc. flight + car hire) before Nov 1st 2017 (839 euros after)

 

According to Yoruba mythology, Olorum (God), as Light, fragmented by crystallizing on Earth in all material things.

Thus each element of nature is a fraction of the divine, with its own qualities, and the totality of the manifestations of nature as a whole represents the divine.

Studying the specific characteristics of each Orixa allows us to understand the Wisdom of Nature. In Africa, there are several hundred Orixas. In Brazil, they are commonly of the order of twenty, the most important ones.

These Orixas, being divine representations of Nature, it is possible to classify them according to the four constituent elements of Nature, namely Fire, Earth, Water, Air.

During this course, you will discover the four Orixas that constitute each element (16 in all), you will understand how they organise themselves in a natural continuum through the Four Elements, and you will learn what wisdom of nature they transmit and experiment with their powers in the dance.

Philippe Lenaif is trained (among others) in the extensions of Biodanza and Identity; Four Elements; and Biodanza and the Archetypes of the 16 Orixas

He’s also been initiated into the tradition of the Orixas in an Afro-Brazilian group for more than twenty years.

Philippe will be accompanied by percussionists who play in the ceremonies, which he has been organising in Belgium for many years now.

Each dance will be supported by Afro-Brazilian traditional percussion and songs that correspond to the specific vibration of each of the Orixas.
