Workshop Details

“In order to bring the essence of who we are to our lives, we must take time to remember the dreams that inspire us, and uncover the purpose that guides us,” says Ya’Acov Darling Khan. “As a species, we have created a situation that threatens our very survival. We have been living in what the Achuar people in the Ecuadorian Amazon call a ‘trance.’ Fueled by decades of unconscious consumption and disconnection from the natural world, this trance has put the knowledge that we are all interconnected strands in the complex and delicate balance of life on earth to sleep.
“We are in need of a new story, and we each have a role to play in its creation. This intensive workshop offers a blend of focused Movement Medicine practice and the Pachamama Alliance Awakening the Dreamer curriculum to help you deepen your love for life and take your place as an empowered, informed, and creative human being. We will follow the energy of the spring and listen for the deep wisdom we all carry inside us. We will plant the seeds of our dreams in the fertile ground of the dance, and let the dancer translate them into movement, ritual, and dancing prayer for All Our Relations.”
Please note: Thursday afternoon and evening will include a ten-hour-long dance ritual designed to re-dedicate your life to what truly matters to you. Light fasting is encouraged but not required.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
