Tandava

 




The purpose of Tandava is to open the body-mind system, melting the body in a deep relaxation, making it permeable to emotions. The emotions can then freely flow without being stuck and repeated over and over. Over time the deep listening can bring an expansion of sensation to fuse with space, creating a dance with the universe.

Tandava, the mystical tantric dance is the spontaneous, slow and fluid movement of the body in space, generated by the conscious breath.

The body moves spontaneously through the subtle exploration of physical sensations; both contracted areas and soft, spacious areas.

In this way the body becomes more receptive and the senses opened. Curiosity, deep listening to the sensations and the willingness to let the body move in its full potential are developed in this practice from the Kaula tantric tradition.


Openness is bodily openness, muscular relaxation, heart openness as opposed to hiding behind some emotional wall, and spiritual openness, which is actually feeling so fully into the moment that there's no separation between you and the entire moment.
~ David Deida

O Goddess, enjoy the extremely slow movements of your body,
of a mount, of a vehicle and, with peace in mind, sink into divine spirit.
~ Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
