FROM THE 2012 MYSTICAL DANCE TEACHER TRAINING COURSE

 "The journey into Mystical Dance has changed my life in the most beautiful and profound way.  I can truly say that the woman who emerged on the other side of this six week course is not the same girl who began the process.  Through dance and a connection with the Divine, I have gone into the depths of my heart and allowed the beauty to flow from me.  Monika is a powerful and incredibly beautiful teacher, seeing the Goddess in each of us and allowing us to see that Goddess as well.  She has a magical way of creating a process we all loved and enjoyed and that changed us each step of the way.  The course has taught me the freedom of living through our hearts and allowing our passions to dance through us.  We have all been taught how to be teachers, but what we’ve all learned is that “The Dance” is the best teacher of all.  I am so grateful to have been a part of the Mystical Dance TTC and feel extremely blessed to be able to share this with the world!  Thank you to Monika and the Dance!"  ~ Andrea, USA

"The six weeks I spent dancing the divine light with these glorious goddesses from across the globe is an experience I will hold close to my heart for as long as I walk my path on earth.  The mystical dance TTC is a journey of playfulness, laughter, love, transformation and most of all a journey of becoming the dance itself. Monika is a true gift of divine nature.  Everyday she would bring into our temple her love, her light, her passion, her creativity, and her presence.  Day in and day out she would inspire us with her incredible capacity to hold the space for us as we transformed into mystical dancers.  I am honored, and greatly humbled to now call myself a mystical dance teacher and carry this light forward into the world." ~ Nola, Canada

"Just 6 weeks … Just 6 weeks? … But in this 6 weeks I have gotten more transformations than during all of my life.  I have become a completely new person.  I have become the woman which I always dreamed to be, but never was.  I have become beautiful. I have become open.  I can give and receive love.  I see endless beauty in each person.  All of the exercises, dances, rituals and conversations gave me back my femininity and awakened Goddess, which was hidden in me before.  Monika, and all of my sisters gave me back the responsibility and respect, trust and faith in humanity.  And my dream to dance has become a reality.  Thank you, Monika.  Thank you, sisters."  ~ Elena, Russia

"I must admit that at first, I was really unsure if I should do this TTC or not … I didn’t have a clear reason why, just a strong inner pull and curiosity.  Now I can positively say it was my holy intuition guiding me.  This course has transformed me into a more vibrant, centered woman, gifted me with 24 new real-life goddess friends to inspire me and opened doors to a deep transformation that I’m sure will still echo around the universe for many years t o come.  Best of all, my relationship with the Divine has grown in a way I never imagined … Monika has introduced us all into the elusive world of mysticism through sacred dance in a very tangible way.  There are no words to express what a gift this mysticism is to humanity.  This was a profound, ecstatic experience that I will carry with me forever!" ~ Alisha, USA

"The Mystical Dance TTC is one of the most transforming experiences of my life.  I have always danced and loved movement; however, it was only through this course that I learned how to channel this energy into a very strong, meaningful and powerful act.  Originally, I came to do just a one week workshop, however after just one week I felt like there was so much more I needed to learn.  So thankfully there was space and what happened next was truly life changing.  Monika’s experience and presence is an inspiration to aspiring Mystical Dance teachers."  ~ Tammy, Australia

"The Mystical Dance TTC was sacred, tantric and deeply transformational for me.  All energies and aspects I wanted to work with and integrate into my life.  It was an amazing exploration of the sacred, mystical Goddess work.  Monika’s skills created profound rituals that are deeply meaningful.  Wow!  What a journey!!!" ~ Palma, Italy

"I am transformed.  This course has helped me to dive so deeply into myself and access levels that I never knew existed.  I came here feeling lost but hopeful, and I leave seeing the clear light and beauty of the Divine Goddess.  Thank you so much Monika for creating and holding the space for women to come together and discover their divine selves."  ~ Caralise, USA

"Amazing, sacred, beautiful, transformative, sexy, empowering, fun …. the MDTTC was this and so much more.  It has empowered me as a woman to do what I love.  To dance and honor the goddess within each of us and to begin teaching.  The tools and experiences I have gained from the MDTTC are better than gold.  I feel more able to begin my journey into teaching mystical dance and spiritual hiking trips.  Also, the MDTTC was incredibly fun, delicious and an amazing journey of self exploration.  I feel the support from the beautiful sisters will continue as we all continue our journeys.  Monika is an amazing teacher!"  ~ Caitlin, Canada

"Life continues on after the MDTTC but beautiful remnants of that time linger always... like the most beautiful stardust illuminating the most ordinary moments! I will forever be grateful to you for this heart-expanding, feminine dwelling time. I have a never-ending supply of love for you, your work, your teachings and the inspiration that I receive. I'm hoping to teach a mystical dance workshop in the next few weeks... I'll be calling in your mystical, magical, maha-shakti presence!  Endless love and gratitude." ~ Blaire, Canada

"Mystical Dance is a deep expression of the divine feminine unfolding on this planet.  Great transformation occurs as we express this higher truth through dance, meditation, the sisterhood and the honoring of the divine masculine.  I love to be alive!  I love to dance and I love to feel the deepest stratum of my being in stillness and love.  I have found my path."  ~ Ra Lalita Dasi, UK

"I have participated in Monika's belly dance classes in Dharamsala, both in 2010 & 2011.  I was blown away by the freedom the feminine could express herself here...  the playfulness & sexiness of the women around me was striking.  I found personal freedom in simply moving my hips & getting in touch with different energies from the feminine spectrum.  I FELT lighter, lifted, in touch with my body & spirit after her class...  even my emotions flowed more freely, and I found this new expression delicious.  I especially am interested in dancing for the Divine...as worship...I know no one better than Monika to teach this! She has brought herself to another level in femininity...  beauty, strength, regality, humbleness, spirit...I especially love the support she gives to all women, regardless of young, old, professional dancer or just someone looking to "let loose"." ~ Alishia, USA
