The Dance of the Six Spaces of Samantabhadra
with Cindy Faulkner
In the Dzogchen teachings, sound and movement are very important because they are the means to integrate oneself into the state of contemplation. The Vajra Dance is principally a means to harmonise the energy of the individual. If one has a more profound knowledge of the meaning of the Dance, it becomes a method for integrating the three experiences of body, voice and mind into knowledge of the state of contemplation. This integration is one of the most important aims of a Dzogchen practitioner. The Vajra Dance is practised on a Mandala which represents the correspondence between the internal dimension of the individual and the outer dimension of the world.
Cindy Faulkner: Cindy Faullkner was a professional dancer and teacher before connecting with the Vajra Dance and Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in 1996. She has been authorised to teach Vajra Dance since 2005.
