II Mandalas in Motion International Immersion – Switzerland and Toscana 2020

Registrations are open for the II Edition of the Mandalas in Motion International Immersion Workshop: Switzerland and Tuscany 2020.

Date: August 27 through September 12, 2020. Confirmed. Waiting List.

During the first week, we will stay at the Hotel & Bildungszentrum Matt in Lucerne, Switzerland, and in the second, at Hotel Mandala Tre Querce, in Volterra, Italy. This means we will need to unpack our luggage only twice! That’s wonderful, isn’t it?

There are amazing tours planned for the touristic week in Italy. At Mandala Tre Querce, we will still have the opportunity to Dance in some evenings, as well as very early before breakfast, not to mention the thermal baths offered by this cozy and bucolic hotel… Can you imagine? Arrive in the evening after the tours and go relax in thermal waters? Ah, another detail about this hotel is that it has been booked with breakfast and dinner included. We will have lunch in beautiful spots in the Tuscany.

The repertoire includes the 33 Mandalas and their respective circle dances of the book Mandalas in Motion. The whole choreographic composition was created by Adriana Bisconsin. There are 33 Mandalas, 33 paths of possibilities of rejoining your center. We will work on Circle Dances related to Life, to Love and to Dance.

The focus of the workshop is the personal building of each one’s own Dance Mandala, aimed at your evolutionary path, at the return to your center, at your origin and shape in motion.

For this workshop, it is recommended that the participant has taken at least one Mandalas in Motion workshop in the modular format.

Length of the workshop: 60 hours.

About Mandalas in Motion

Mandalas in Motion is a Circle Dance Program comprising 33 Mandalas; 33 paths of possibilities for you to reconnect to your center. These Mandalas are images of meditation and healing which, once connected to the dance movements, strengthen themselves resulting into a powerful vortex of health, creativity and protection.

Certainly, just like me, you will be amazed, as this workshop is not only a Circle Dance course; it is rather a masterpiece that tells in mandala images in motion and choreographies a spiritual path of deep connection to your inner center.

In August 2014, inspired by a book of 33 mandalas painted by Monika Cortesi found in a hotel in Lucerne, Switzerland, Adriana felt that this beautiful, sensitive and profound material could be the seed for the development of a work of spirituality, beauty and movement, although she did not know how at that moment.

And so it was. Along almost 4 years, Adriana chose 33 songs, created choreographies and designed her own mandalas, matching and harmonizing these 3 elements. I could experience this permanent state of creation and be part of everything she created, as I was also involved by the beauty of her work, including the co-creation of the mandala final arts… Since then, I could understand much, much better the Circle Dances with which I had had very little contact. I managed to access inner parts of myself not before exploited… I would spend hours guessing “how” it was possible. Every song selected by Adriana seemed to match and belong to those images… It was amazing, and while dancing them, it all made sense. I know there is mystery, a certain magic in all this, but through this choreographed composition, I have experienced what I had never felt before: the Movement that really Heals and Transforms. My life gained different colors, different rhythms and much more movement.

This magic creation, of supreme inspiration and spirituality, is Adriana Bisconsin’s masterpiece, as she succeeds to match beautiful songs, amazing choreographies and enlightened Mandalas that come alive in Motion when they are danced.

It is Love feeding and elevating the Spirit, healing the Body through Beauty.

By Ricardo Peixoto Ribeiro

In August 2018, Adriana launched her book Mandalas in Motion, both in Switzerland and in Brazil. This book shows 33 circle dance mandalas including 9 QR Codes, through which the dances and their respective mandalas in motion may be accessed.

Also in August 2018, a group of 35 people, who had already attended at least one Mandalas in Motion workshop, went to Lucerne, Switzerland, to the same hotel where the history started in August 2014. There they attended the I Mandalas in Motion International Immersion and also visited that beautiful country in the second week. In that occasion, Monika Cortesi, the author of the Mandala Book that inspired Adriana, was present to the workshop and she and Adriana could meet one another.
