The Dance of the Song of the Vajra

The Dance of the Song of the Vajra is a complex symbolic dance for twelve dancers connected in particular to the energetic aspect of our existence. The sound of each syllable of the Song of the Vajra is linked to a specific energy point within the inner mandala (the dancer’s body) and also the outer mandala (the external dimension of the world). Through the integration of sound, color, and movement, the dancer can coordinate these energy points and create a resonance between the inner and outer dimensions, opening us up to a higher awareness.
