Private & Group Sessions Available
The Inner Dance is a transformative self-awakening process that organically leads anyone in surrender towards authentic and meaningful existence through intuitive healing, releasework and intuitive body movement.
Inner Dance is the intuitive remembrance of the true self through heightened inner awareness of bodies, minds and emotions as Energy. Coming to the awareness of this energy brings people to a more strengthened, sustainable and harmonious existence with other beings and the planet itself.
You can experience Inner Dance in two forms:
One-on-one healing sessions
Inner Dance experiential group journey
The Inner Dance journey is a 3 hour process that takes you through a music journey into a conscious dream state. You will begin lying down in savasana and be guided through a deep journey into your true self. The Inner Dance process peels away the layers of our conditioned mental limitations, and slowly reveals our deeper core principles and the activation of our Birth Vision – our primary reason for existing on the planet to begin with. It is in this remembrance that the Inner Dance ultimately leads participants to intuitively evolve in response to global shifts and to embrace a more harmonious way of existing on our planet.
In a nutshell, Inner Dance is a transformative shift in consciousness, one that also shifts the physical body. Alongside this shift is the remembrance of our wholeness – Oneness — organically leading us to live in harmony with nature. It leads us to a spiritual life on earth, an existence of simplicity, sacredness, sustainability.
About Pi Villaraza (Founder of Inner Dance)
Pi was a corporate man who owned businesses in advertising and events management, was a business consultant to major corporations and was the general manager of the travel giant STA Travel in Philippines. In 2002, he left everything to undergo a five-year vision quest around the world that took him to chance meetings with powerful spirit guides that told him that he must undergo a walking pilgrimage around Mindanao and a two-year stay in a deserted Palawan beach as a hermit, without money and contact with his past relations. It was in this beach that he found his ability to heal himself and those around him. He has since been busy creating several healing spaces in the Philippines for people from all walks of life. Politicians, fisherfolks, businessmen, travelers, farmers, families, religious officers and medical practitioners attend his workshops to reconnect with this ancient and powerful internal alchemy.
The following interview is with Pi Villaraza (the founder).
(It originally appeared in Cosmic Lighthouse Metaphysics Magazine in Singapore. And re-published by holisticasia.com as it appeared on March 28, 2009.)
After a seven-year spiritual journey across the world, Pi Villaraza chanced upon a powerful life-altering healing vibration while living alone on a deserted beach island in Palawan in the Philippine Islands for two years. He calls it The Inner Dance and has since taught many people how to heal themselves and others through this ancient healing modality. Pi Villaraza would be conducting workshops and personal healing sessions in Singapore this coming March, and Abundantlee from Cosmic Lighthouse magazine took this opportunity to interview him about his wonderful work.
In less than twenty words, how would you describe Inner Dance?
In total silence, it’s that river that flows from the cosmos and into your heart. It was dancing from the higher self, and I was simply watching it move to the flow of the universe.
How did this ancient healing modality first come to you?
I felt a powerful urge to detach myself from all external sources of energy – family, money, friends and the many distractions of the world. During an intense vision quest, I found myself almost alone on an empty beach island where I found a million and one ways to return to the natural self. In this state, there was nothing else to happen but to heal.In that most spontaneous moment in my life, letting go of all processes, simply leaving things alone… a build-up of energy welled up inside me, and after a long time fasting and living only on coconuts, that energy just burst forth in an ecstatic movement of my body. It was dancing from the higher self, and I was simply watching it move to the flow of the universe.
What do you feel was the purpose of your pilgrimage and time as a hermit?
Something is missing in this world… something very essential is lost upon us. We have been looking for it in material things, educational attainment and power-driven relationships. And whenever we think we are on the brink of catching up with it, we find that we are just attempting to grasp incense smoke that effortlessly slips through our fingers. I believed in this strongly and wanted to give my life to try to find it.At the height of my vision quest, that first and most innermost dance was the one moment when I did not have a doubt that absolute completeness was real, and that it can be attained. For a moment, nothing was missing in the world.
How has this discovery changed you?
I used to be the shyest kid who would let no one touch me. Today, I give healing sessions to strangers who are looking for the same thing I was looking for. I am still that small shy boy… in that, nothing has changed. But there is in my mind often an old man who has learned that maturity comes at the point when you have learned from your experiences and decide to act upon it. I would like to think that my greatest personal transformation is my ability to act on what I believe in instead of how I used to live in the past… to act out because I was afraid of so many things.
What are the chief benefits of Inner Dance and how is it different from other dances?
In Inner Dance, a person begins by accessing an inner source that when it builds up, creates tremendous energetic movement within the physical and emotional body. From the perspective of Kundalini, this build-up starts from the lower three chakras, which open as the upper three also start descending, with both movements meeting at the heart chakra.The basic difference of the Inner Dance from dance in general is the source of the movement. Dance is usually something coordinated by the brain which tells the body to move. The Inner Dance is an automatic and spontaneous movement of the self that actually catches the ego and the conscious mind by surprise. If the person is not in awe of their body suddenly moving with a careful ecstatic grace that they have not felt before, then they have not yet accessed the Inner Dance and will know that they have more inner work and detaching to do in the outer reality.The most common occurrence that exactly differentiates Inner Dance with other movements are crackling sounds and sensations a person finds once they access the Inner altered state of the divine flow. Carlos Castaneda reports of this specific manifestation as described and fully demonstrated to him by Don Juan in the Magic Passes. And I have encountered healers from the ancient lineage of babaylan in Mindanao who told me of these same crackling noises in their bodies. They sound like electricity and are nothing but pure alchemy of the darkness and weight within being released and turned into light.
In what way has your partner Daniw changed your experience and understanding of Inner Dance and your teaching of it?
I see her as my yin and yang counterpart. The quandary is that many male spiritual seekers are invariably looking for the sacred feminine principle within us – signified by water, compassion, nurturing, intuition and acceptance. Females on the other hand are identifying themselves with the fiery male archetype, which is passion, creativity, logic and warrior-ship. Daniw provides me with a sense of balance by naturally encompassing what I quest to permeate in me while she regards me from the opposite end.
What advice would you give to someone who has similarly been gifted with a healing ability and wishes to share it with others?
The greatest healing wisdom comes from within. The source of energy is infinite, it is free and it lasts for all eternity. We are all the source. To become this source of life, first detach oneself from illusory sources of energy – that which we think we need and want but does not last. If the process has nothing to do with purgation, letting go and simplification, it is not a healing process. The healing process is simply letting go. It is not something that can be taught or thought of. There are no techniques, shortcuts or worldly teachings to accepting one’s inevitable role as healer of the brothers and sisters of mankind. Plainly, a healer is one who becomes the source of energy that helps others remember that they too are the source.
