Alchemical Dance Priestess Training
:: Kundalini Dance Facilitator Training ::
Shangrila Oceanside Retreat
Bali, September 17th – 29th 2018
Do you feel called to serve the awakening of others in a meaningful and authentic way? Do you feel passionate about dance, music and inner transformation? Are you longing for a fun, juicy, ecstatic practice that is going to accelerate your evolutionary process and allow your soul’s unique gifts to come alive! Do you desire to learn the art of mapping transformational dance journeys and ceremonies for your community?
If the answer is yes, come dance with us and join the next Alchemical Dance Facilitator Training!
When you train to become a facilitator of Kundalini Dance you are not only learning tools that will help you to guide others and inspire their transformation and evolution. You will also develop inner capacities that help you to navigate through the challenges of your daily life. As you dedicate to this practice, you become more heart centred and deeply anchored in your sacred feminine power and intuition. Previous trainees have likened the facilitator training journey to that of a priest/ priestess initiation as you deepen in your service and prepare to become a guide for others to connect to the Divine within themselves and without.
– Kaitlyn Feild, long term Kundalini Dance Facilitator and Trainer.

Following is a more detailed description of the different modules.
11 Day Immersion- Alchemical Dance Journey Facilitator
Shangrila Oceanside Retreat Centre, Bali, Indonesia
17th – 29th September 2018 (NEW DATES)
The Facilitator Training is structured so that you begin your training with a 11 day immersion into the work of Kundalini Dance on retreat in Bali. The KD practice is an exceptionally refined transformational alchemy practice and those desiring to participate in the facilitator training program will undergo a deep transformative journey that requires mastery of emotional alchemy, tantric shamanic energy practices, chakra psychology, divine feminine archetypal embodiment and full bodied ecstatic energy body awakening.
Week One – Chakra Alchemy
In the first week we will take you on an alchemical journey through the chakras, cleansing & ecstatically awakening your body and soul and begin to align your soul to be a conduit for the transmission of the Kundalini Dance evolutionary practices.
We will be focusing on one chakra per day for eight days. Each day you will dance the chakra and learn the structures to facilitate a complete transformational, alchemical chakra journey for others.
Students will have needed to have completed the Ecstatic Awakening – Chakra Alchemy Course Online before coming to Bali in order to get the most out of this week. If it is possible and there is a local Kundalini Dance facilitator in your area you would be asked to attend at least one 8 week Chakra Journey live. If there are no teachers in your area the online course will suffice as preparation.
Week Two – Divine Feminine Archetypal Embodiment
There are five main archetypal expressions that come through Kundalini Shakti which are relevant to our process of understanding and embodying the alchemical transformational process. In our second week we will explore a different sacred archetype each day as we deepen into understanding this vast terrain of navigating Kundalini energy as a transformational current of life.
We explore how Kundalini Shakti manifests as the Divine Mother and begin the process of activating the womb as a source of power and evolutionary energy. The following day we will explore the erotic sensual energies of Lalita Shakti, The Lover, reclaiming our sexuality as a sovereign transformational force of life. The following day will be dedicated to the fiery transformational energies of Kali Shakti, and unleash the wild women within. The fourth day we will focus on the sweet pure hearted energies of Lakshmi Shakti and embody the sacred marriage of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine in the heart.
The fifth day we will embody the subtle refined energy of Saraswati Shakti that awakens the throat chakra and the higher mind of The Wise Woman.
This week we explore the foundations of inner tantra and how to circulate the Shakti force to generate the inner energies required for alchemical transformation.
Students will be invited to complete the Embodying Erotic Divinity Course Online at some point through the 13 months training.
12 Month Ongoing Study and Practicums
After our 11 day immersion in Bali you will be prepared to teach three 7 week – Chakra dance journeys through in your local community. You are required to teach three practicums before you will be complete with your training and officially qualify as a Level One – Kundalini Dance Facilitator. The Kundalini Dance training team will be providing supervision for practicums for the 11 months after your facilitator training intensive. Supervision will be provided on line via our online community Facebook group forum and on group conference calls.
Online Facilitator Training Component
After your 11 day immersion in Bali, we will offer eleven months of online supervision via our online Facebook group forum and monthly teleconference calls while you teach your practicums. Your practicum is where you will teach in your community on a donation basis, with transparency around you being a student in training. This support and supervision is offered for you to ulitize while you complete your practicums and embody the alchemical keys of KD in preparation for our final 10 day immersion and completion ceremony.
Once a month will be an online conference call with Leyolah to specifically share your personal process and healing journey. Part of the journey of training to be a Kundalini Dance Facilitator means an intensive personal development process. The truth is, once you make your commitment to serve the evolution of others, Shakti works you. All the ways that you are getting in the way of her creative flow, will arise to be seen, felt and released. You are required to have a monthly on line call with Leyolah to report your inner journey and personal progress.
Final 7 Day Immersion – Sacred Inner Union
Live Practicum, Completion and Graduation Ceremony
Shangrila Oceanside Retreat Centre, Bali, Indonesia
For the final immersion, we will spend an empowering 7 days in Bali focusing on the Divine Inner Marriage of Sacred Inner Union with the inner Beloved. We will focus on sacred sexuality, and Divine Inner Union as the keys for transformational alchemy. This is the final empowerment of your initiation before you become a fully qualified Kundalini Dance practitioner.
This new 13 month training will give you three main branches of specialisation, in Chakra Dance Journeys, Divine Feminine Sacred Archetypal Embodiment and Sacred Inner Union.
“The Kundalini Dance facilitator training was a powerful initiation connecting me to the divine life force that dwells with in me. I learned new skills to shift old beliefs and patterns that were limiting my capacity to experience joy ecstasy and bliss. Moving the dense energy of fear, anger and shame from my body and dancing it into the light of love. As a facilitator I have witnessed the transformational power of this work change the lives of those who choose to open themselves to the creative abundant life force that flows through us. I am so grateful for this work and the gifts I have received from it.” – Snow Marks, Alaska

More testimonials for Kundalini Dance Facilitator Training
“Undertaking this training is like throwing a huge rock in the middle of the pond of your slumber. The ripples will reach far beyond what you could except and permeate every aspects of your life, uncovering your willingness and dedication to live your truth in the world. This is not a process for the faint hearted. All aspects of your being will be addressed, dissected, processed and transformed from the physical expression of your being to the darkest corners of your soul. The KD work that Leyolah shared so openly and lovingly with us has for ever changed my life for the better. Many of the masks my ego was hiding behind had to be thrown in the purification fire of ecstatic dancing, for a new being to rise from the ashes of my fears. I’ve danced myself into a new skin, ready and dedicated to share the awesome power of that transformative technique with my community. Thank you Leyolah for holding such an amazing frequency, creating space for our journeys to unfold and supporting us so conscientiously in accessing places within ourselves that seemed unattainable.” – Valérie Armenante, Byron Bay
