Special workshops and journeys
The dancer stands in the face of the darkness of the unknown, untouched and unattached. Free. In order to make the dream - the illusion - alive, the dancer gives it breath, brings breath to body, spirit to the visible.
The dancer is an artist, and artists are masters of risk. Artists are also healers and shamans, the first-ever magicians in search of the meaning of being human.
And to me, to be human is to inhabit the spaces in-between polar opposites - invisible and visible, movement and stillness, inner and outer, feminine and masculine - and bring them into an embodied loving relationship. It is a way to marry the opposites and become authentic women and men who are co-creative partners yet with individuated differences. It is always about discovering the uniqueness of ourselves, the voice of our heart, as well as having a specific purpose in the collective. Finally it is about allowing everything, including ourselves to change, be in continuous transformation, in flux. For, it is how we bring vibrancy to the way we are.
I offer these workshops and journeys as safe spaces in which it is possible to drop into the present moment, awaken to what is already there and call one's own creative power in order to harness the seeds of one's potential and give them body, birth them into the visible. Expand consciousness. Dance. They are dedicated to practical exploration and personal discovery within a communal setting, a sharing of our humanity in all of its shapes and forms. The purpose - to live understanding ourselves in a web of connections where everything is alive and has consciousness. To know ourselves consciously as part of a world that is expression of the sacred unity rooted in diversity, an appreciation of differences.

with Biljana Lipic
Iâve found rich soil where I can bloom. - Jodi Feist King
I have been to the moon and back! - Alison Fleming
Let us not adopt some facile, narrowly psychological view of our lives. The radical dimension I speak of demands everything we are and have. Joy, not happiness, is its fruit. - Charlotte Jako Beck
Drop into the honey of infinite being. Move deeper in love. Journey in connection.
We invite you to gather, this time in a vibrant venue near the city of love, Paris - to creatively and spiritually explore Love in its infinite forms. The Shamanâs map of consciousness, ecstatic and healing techniques and the movement metaphor of Argentine tango will be our gateways to these higher vibrational heart encounters and adventures.
Indoors, outdoors, together and alone - Immersing into our presence through the body and senses, we shall be sharing beautiful space, eating nourishing food, spending time with-in nature.. Also, walking, dancing, playing, meditating, whilst at the same time engaging our mind with symbols and meaning in movement. Gently nudging the parts of our soul, which have separated themselves from the inter-connected oneness of all life, sharing together in circle, in ancient healing and ceremony, we shall come back home, to our infinitely re-source-ful sense of wholeness and heart.
Although incredibly simple at its core, answering the call of Love (which is often dormantly waiting in our very bones and cells) is the most radical act of freedom! An act that requires sensitivity, sensuality and compassion. It calls for deep honesty, playful curiosity and courage, but also willingness to do the work, as well as trust in what lies beyond the known.
Secure in the guidance and support of those who came before us, allowing these fruits to ripen and their juices to run in our own minds and bodies, our communities, within our creative practices, relationships and lives... is a beautiful way to truly anchor us on our journeys, whilst gracefully awakening us to the primal joy at seeing ourselves embraced by lifeâs beauty, as part of itâs infinite dance.
Biljana Lipic is an artist, teacher, director.. creative entrepreneur and shamanic guide.. dancer between the worlds. Born in a country that doesnât exist anymore, she embodies a life in between countries, cultures, identities and lands, but finds home in our common humanity and the universal soul.

Besides running workshops and one of the most popular tango clubs in London, she has also created critically acclaimed theatre show, as well as worked for BBC, ITN and in film industry as a performer and a coach.
A life long spiritual seeker, her creative dancing spirit led her into a honeyed embrace of the Path of Pollen, shamanic way of the bee. Her profound experiences of awakening into the true nature of reality, led to a creation of Shamanic Tango, a synthesis of the ancient and modern, spiritual and embodied, feminine and masculine ways into expanded consciousness and a realised way of being.
