Goddess Movement Meditation Workshops


Essence Dance is a delicious dance form celebrating life, love, the ecstasy of our core energy, the joy of being a part of the flow, life’s gift in our body and the sacred soul-journey of the Path of Love.

There are no steps or movements to learn, just a surrendering into the knowing of the body, dancing the moment as it manifests in you. Essence Dance facilitates the freeing of stuck energy or emotion (energy-in-motion), so we may follow the wave of our heart and find our YES, our bliss, our truth, our exquisite essence.

Essence dance is a space of feeling, dropping into, it is not specifically to raise Kundalini, heart’s love or ecstasy, though all may occur: it is in service to what wants to arise. Often it is in service to giving space for the feeling and becoming conscious of the shadow /small/ wounded places within us all and facing where these have been ruling our behaviour and movements. This is a journey of becoming more of who we are: essence in a body, Goddess and God dancing or our surrender into Their dance in us.



Essence Dance allows you to express what is and celebrates the uniqueness of the Devine within us all. Essence Dance can be free standing classes or courses, it is also an integral part of the Goddess Movement Mediation workshops Katinka brings: a place in which to come celebrate, and connect to, the gifts of the Goddess in your body and life!

With movement we gently release, heal and celebrate, joyously connecting to Her energy and blessings. With gratitude we will share our gifts with each other, remembering who we are.

Goddess Movement Mediation and Essence Dance workshops are open to adults of all age and ability, no previous dance or meditation experience needed.

Keep in Touch

I hope that we can connect either via a session, a workshop, a training, a ceremony or in the dance! I am travelling on a regular basis so if you don’t hear from me straight away, it is very likely I am at a place where there is no wi-fi connection. However I do check my emails regularly so I will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.
