LYDIA MAROLDA 光人 A Brief Biography

In my early 20’s, I had the revelation that dance was a powerful medicine that could connect me to “something Greater” than I had ever known. Inspired by my experiences on dance floors from around the globe I have devoted my life to exploring what it means to use dance and ritual for healing and empowering the Self on all levels. I understand that in facilitating my own evolution and that of others I am assisting with the global shift that is happening at this time.
I have a Masters degree in Education and Expressive Arts in Learning, in addition to having studied with many great teachers, healers and mentors throughout the US, South America, Asia and Australia.  I have been teaching, creating curriculum and sharing embodiment practices with thousands of adults and children from around the planet for almost 15  years; and I can honestly say that I  am now ready to share the full potency of my gifts!
When I found Dancing Freedom in 2010, I knew it to be the perfect synergy of my passions for dance and shamanism. It was from that point I made my choice to become a fully certified facilitator, committed to bring the power of consciously moving our bodies to those ready to heed the call.
My mission is to use the tools I have gained to remind youth and adults how to embrace their body’s movements and natural intelligence as a means of experiencing life to its fullest. What happens when we remember that life is the dance and we learn to surrender and move to the music? I invite you to come, move, and feel for yourself.
I offer fortnightly Dancing Freedom journeys in Melbourne with my beloved partner, Richard.  We also offer workshops, special events, and committed class series for those who wish to dive in deeper into their embodied experience.
I also offer one-one-one mentoring and shamanic healing sessions,  personalised group dance journeys, rituals and drum journeys available by appointment only.
