Course in Part II of the Vajra Dance of the Song of the Vajra

Course in Part II of the Vajra Dance of the Song of the Vajra
November 2017

The Vajra Dances which we practice in the Dzogchen Community belong to the cycle of Longsal Teachings of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, and are inseparably linked to the Transmission of his Dzogchen Teachings.

In the Dzogchen teaching Vajra refers to our real nature, the true condition of all phenomena. The Vajra Dance is an important method which uses sound and movement for integrating the three aspects of our existence: body, voice or energy and mind in that knowledge. And on the relative level, can coordinate, harmonize and relax our body, energy and mind.

The Vajra Dance is member of CID (Conseil International de la Danse/International Dance Council), the official organization recognized by UNESCO for all forms of dance in all countries of the world.
