MEET THE TEAM

Julia Hope Brightwell (Jewell), Co-Director

Julia trained at the Dorset School from 2008-11 and became affiliated with the school as a Didactic teacher in 2016. Julia has now taught for 4 years as a Didactic and became a Co-Director of the school in 2019.

Julia's passion is health and well-being, she loves the way "Biodanza amplifies the health in each person and re-patterns cellularly the positive aspects of dance. Self-regulation and listening to the body ensure that we can move more and more towards what is life-affirming for us."

Mike Skilbeck (Niraj), Co-Director

I am Mike Skilbeck, also known as Niraj, born in 1963 in London, but brought up in York from the age of four. I was introduced to Biodanza in the summer of 1997 and completed the International Biocentric Foundation training programme, Tutor Training and Didactic Tutor Training over the course of the following 8 years. 

Niraj has run 4 cycles of training at the Dorset School up to November 2019. Niraj is working abroad in 2020 and enjoying a well earned sabbatical, he will however teach at some point in the 5th cycle.

Niraj has successfully orchestrated the International Biodanza Festival at Osho Leela, Gillingham for many years - something not to be missed! Next year 10th-14th June 2020. Contact Niraj or  Kate at dancebiodanzaevents@gmail.com

THE BIODANZA PROFESSOR


Becoming a teacher of Biodanza consists essentially of discovering a mission, a mission to transmit the state of grace, show new ways to pursue love and awake the enlightened consciousness.


Frequently people carry a wrong identity, a warped self image. They reduce their existence to the demands of a poor or toxic environment. If men feel insignificant, their actions are insignificant as well

The self image of inferiority creates monsters. Many people don't know they carry inside a divinity.

The essential nature of humanity is the eternal celebration of life. This condition reveals an enlightened vision of ourselves and of the world.

The realisation of our true nature is not a personal privilege. To be enlightened for oneself is not enough. Our light should be used to help enlighten those who remain in the darkness, enabling them to see their essence and transmit to them the light.
 

To live, is a very special opportunity, is the opportunity to perceive "the eternal human" and to feel in the body the sacredness of life. There is inside us something bigger and more marvellous than our thoughts or actions.
If we don't connect with that eternal depth of feeling, we are poor mortals full of difficulties, our life becomes insignificant.

 

To acquire that connection with the life's splendour is essential. Actually the enlightenment, which many people frequently speak of like an exceptional phenomenon full of mystic and occult connotations, is a natural condition of all human beings. It's about a change of vision of ourselves and the meaning of life. It's a new way of bonding to other people and facing the difficulties as part of our daily life, accepting abundance and beauty that love generates.


We are much more than we generally think. We are cosmic creatures able to love and create beauty.
If we don't assume the greatness, we become assassins and our life becomes insignificant, superficial.

To my joy, teachers of Biodanza carry on the highest task our existence can embrace: To give back to the world the sacredness of life.
