Dance retreats ThailandPlease join internationally acclaimed teacher, author and dance choreographer Dr. Gabriele ‘Malti’ Wosien for two special evening presentations at Kamalaya’s Yantra Hall.

The first presentation takes place on 5 January and considers “Sufism and the Prayer in Movement”. In an evening featuring text passages, images and video extracts of a Sema ceremony. Gabriele will explore Sufism and the meditative practice of the Mevlevi Dervish Turning, based on the teachings of Rumi. Following the presentation. Gabriele will stage an interactive short practice and a Q&A session.

On the following Tuesday, 12 January, Gabriele and her guests will explore “Christian Meditation in Movement”, based on the Apocryphal teachings, as handed down by John the Divine.

Gabriele graduated with honors in Russian Language & Literature from the University of London, and then went on there to earn her Ph.D. in Russian Folktales. Based on her studies of Eastern and Western sacred traditions, she developed her own approach and thematic cycles in dance choreography, with a special focus on the religious and ritual origins of European folk dances. Her work emphasizes the conscious experience of mythological images and symbols so as to experience their healing potential.

Gabriele bases her choreographies on traditional movement archetypes, for which she uses sacred, classical and folk music. She has gained an international reputation through teacher training courses, talks and seminars, as well as through her publications in several languages. In collaboration with her father, the ballet dancer and choreographer Bernhard Wosien (1908-1986), she developed what came to be called Sacred Dance.

Dr. Wosien teaches regularly in her native Germany and European countries.
