The Dreaming Body:

Shamanic Practices for a Long Life

with Simona Vigo

Live Zoom Course
Recorded in February 2023


“Regain the fluidity of the body and expand your consciousness through the archetypal forces of nature.”

This course is both theoretical and experiential. It introduces the bases of Dreaming Body practice by offering an opportunity to experience some of the most representative movements for each original archetype of earth, salt water, sweet water, and metal.
Why Dreaming Body?
Shamans say: “The World is what you dream: change your state of consciousness and you will change your life”. The shamanic teaching of Dreaming Body is to awaken within us the original archetypal energies by "becoming" the archetype, acquiring its posture, its gaze, recognizing its presence that faces our mind through images and dreams, moves our soul through emotions, informs our body with specific movements.
Embodying the archetype through the precise reproduction of the movements that represent it allows us to change our state of consciousness by entering a deep dialogue with the archetypal forces that inhabit our consciousness as ancient images, inner oracles that show us paths and unveil mysteries.
The integration of body movements, conscious breathing, and mind visions empower us to experience contact with fields of archetypal qualities in which we are constantly immersed and which act within us as the ordering principles of our inner experience.
Join us for these unique experiential classes!

What you will learn

The Dreaming Body practices act on the five levels of the body-mind unity:
- PHYSICAL: sensations, posture, muscle structure, body attitudes, physical symptoms;
- ENERGY: energy blocks, chakras, functionality and vitality level of organs and viscera, metabolic, biochemical, vegetative processes, energetic and functional symptoms;
- EMOTIONAL: feelings, emotions, moods, needs, desires, aspirations, fears, emotional symptoms;
- MENTAL: thoughts, images, fantasies, memories;
- SPIRITUAL: expansion of consciousness, visions, insights.
The intent is to achieve awareness and release of a great deal of energy often compressed and in chronic stiffness and physical pain.
Regular practice of the Dreaming Body enables us to acquire greater bodily fluidity and flexibility, which in turn mirrors greater emotional and mental awareness.

What do people have to say

 “I was not weak.”

“I never realized how combative, bold, courageous I am. I went through sickness and death with the strength of a warrior. This path gave me back my value, awareness, and pride in what I had done. I was not weak. I was strong. Inside me, I discovered a warrior strength that I will never again forget to honor.
– Elisabetta

“A secret place.”

Whenever I practice Dreaming Body, I always feel like I'm going through something, a secret space. Everything takes on another aspect. In my life I have always been irascible and full of judgment. Now I feel better. The Dreaming Body is my Super Bingo!
– Daniela

“There is something bigger.”

I have felt lonely, always. Yet, when I do the Dreaming Body, I realize it's not like that. There is something bigger. There’s a place where the force comes from, just what you're asking for.
– Monica

“I stop and wait for the force to come. And it always does!”

I have pulmonary emphysema that causes me constant breathing problems, and sometimes, I am afraid of dying. Then I met the archetype of the wind. I am learning not to be afraid of the breath, to let it come and go as it wants. I used to panic, especially if I was on the street alone. Now I stop and wait for the force to come. And it always comes!
