THIS SUMMER: 

"RHYTHM IS THE CURE" HEALING DRUMMING AND DANCE RETREAT IN TUSCANY, ITALY  

AUGUST 14-24, 2020

Rhythm is the Cure is a 7-day intensive healing workshop featuring Southern Italian ritual dances used as music and dance therapy for centuries throughout the Mediterranean. Participants will learn the unique style of tambourine playing and the ancient healing trance dance of the tarantella, used to cure the mythical bite of the tarantula.
This workshop focuses on releasing blockages of energies, and break the imaginary "spiderweb"
of the subconscious mind.
Through this work, Alessandra has helped transform many people's lives through the years.

The workshop will be held at "La Chiara di Prumiano," a beautiful 17th-century Tuscan villa high in the Chianti hills.  

The objectives of the workshop are:

--To introduce the participants to an ancient
form of music and dance therapy used to
cure the mythical bite of the tarantula and
to come to understand the healing and stress-relieving effect of these rhythms and dances.

--To learn the history of this powerful tambourine style, originally done mainly by women, which dates back to the rites of the Mother Earth
Goddess Cybele, now worshiped as the Black Madonna bringing women back in touch
with their drumming tradition.

--To make the participants feel part of community-healing rituals as they use their bodies in movements that help open the energy points and stay grounded.

--To release blockages of emotional and sensual energies through the Pizzica dance of liberation, therefore expelling any feelings of depression and repression.
