The Wonder of Becoming the Human Animal: A Biodanza Shamanism Workshop
With Antoinette Lorraine
‘Our culture has fear of the wilderness, both internal and external. But it is the wilderness that sustains us, feeds, us, nurtures us, gives us life.
This weekend we will cultivate and preserve the wildness within ourselves and we will integrate, surrender and be in honour of the wilderness around us.
This requires us to Become the Human Animal again’.
‘On reading the book by David Abram ‘Becoming Animal’- a portal opened inside of me and I was inspired to create this workshop which was received with delight at the Biodanza International Congress in Portugal .
Since then I have been invited to present this workshop internationally .
'The Spell of the Sensuous:Becoming the Fully Embodied Human Animal'
A Biodanza Shamanism Workshop with Antoinette Lorraine:
Our culture has become disconnected from the earth.
But Humans are tuned for this relationship – our eyes, the skin, the tongue, the nostrils, all are gates where our body receives the nourishment from the earth.
We need to know the rhythm, the tastes, the textures of the bodily world.
In this workshop we will awaken our poetic passion and enter into perception and sensuality, stirring us to answer the calls and cries of the earth - connecting and honouring the natural world.
In ritual and ceremony we will cultivate our erotic connection with the earth, honouring and surrendering to the wilderness within us and around us.
Re-awakening and celebrating ‘Becoming the Fully Embodied Human Animal’

'WILD - An Instinctual Journey: Honouring Our Animality'
A Biodanza Shamanism Workshop with Antoinette Lorraine
Wildness is flagrantly sexual - the longest passion of all the species the longing of the daffodil for the spring sun, the thirsting of all roots for water, the sensual relationship between humanity and nature.
On the surface there is an obvious different between you and the daffodil, the fish, the tree - but what animates each is the same vibrancy and energy, the one life force expressing itself in different guises.
We are taught to be scared of the prowling unknown, the wild deserts of beyond. We become tamed and our emotions become disinfected, the forces of grief and joy considered unhygienic.
Every one of us is no less wild than the eagle, the bear, the jaguar and in this workshop we will remember again our wild spirit which blossoms within us.
Inspired by the book Wild by Jay Griffiths
Beauty - The Invisible Embrace; A Biodanza Shamanism Workshop
with Antoinette Lorraine
Beauty is a gentle but urgent call to awaken.
Beauty does not linger, it only visits. Yet beauty's visitation affects us and invites us into its rhythm, it call us to feel, to think, and to act beautifully in the world; to create and live a life that awakens the Beautiful.
Beauty opens our eyes, hearts and minds to the wonder of our own relationship with beauty by exposing the infinity and mystery of its breadth. In this workshop we will enter into the beauty of our existence; encouraging greater intimacy with beauty and celebrating it for what is really is: a homecoming of the human spirit.
