The Centre Culturel Tibétain in collaboration with Shang Shung Foundation is happy to invite you once more to a workshop of Khaita Joyful dances led by Elisha Koppensteiner.
In Tibetan, “Khaita” means “Harmony in space”. Khaita Joyful dances teach us to be aware of our own movement in the space around us. In dancing we also learn to be present to the interior shifting of thoughts and emotions. As we cultivate this relaxed presence in movement, harmony and joy develop naturally.
The choreography of these dances is based on the rhythms and melodies of the songs of young contemporary Tibetan singers, rich in the imagery of life on the “Roof of the World”, just as the songs are. It shows the vitality of an ancient culture whose core motivation has, for centuries, been the happiness of all beings, in harmony with the environment where they live.
Introduction on Khaita Joyful dances by the late Chogyal Namkhai Norbu:
Elisha Koppensteiner lives in Vienna, she is a biologist and deep ecologist working with voice and theatre. She met Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in 1982. Since 2010 she is an authorized Vajra Dance instructor and since 2016 a certified Khaita Expert.
