Dance Your Prayers
Dance Your Prayers is Carrie ‘Zaza’ Branovan’s webhub devoted to mindful teachings of the School of Movement Medicine ~predominantly offered in the UK and Europe~ and now gracefully making its way to Canada and the Americas. You are invited to explore the intensive workshops on offer in 2020 and beyond.
I am honored to be collaborating with School of Movement Medicine Faculty Members to share this Medicine with all who are called. Intensives are a safe, non-judgmental place to come as you are– open to all ages, genders, physical ability, dance experience, and cultural backgrounds. No steps to learn, nothing and nobody to “be”, just willingness to be present and to allow the magnificent dancer inside of you to awaken.

“Attending the “Presence Of Heart” Workshop in Chicago was beyond my expectations. I’ve always loved dance- yet the experience of being a living dance and expressing my most heart-felt prayers through movement was transformative.
We can dance our joys, our grief, and our hope. I will forever treasure this practice deep in my heart.”
“Feeling overwhelming thanks and gratitude and love toward everyone involved in the Presence of Heart workshop in Chicago last weekend. Blew my mind, opened my heart, and taught me to, yeah, dance my prayers.”
“The audience goes to the theater to see the good performance of good plays, and not the play itself: you can read the play.”
“I started dancing with The School of Movement medicine when I lived in England, during its beginning days. What a gift to have a School workshop in the part of the USA where I grew up (the Chicagoland area). This was the first time I attended a workshop taught by David. I would do it again without hesitation. David and assistant teachers created with Presence of Heart, a space in which I was able to be brave and imaginative. In a room of strangers, I danced with profound questions of my soul. I experienced the workshop as nourishing and expansive. I particularly appreciated David’s humility and grace. I offer up a thousand thanks (a turn of phrase David used beautifully) to him, his assistants and the School of Movement Medicine for this work.”
“Participating in the Presence of Heart workshop this past July was one of the blessings of 2019. The work we did in such an open and nurturing community was truly transformative. I am still processing what was stirred up and am grateful for beginning the process of learning what it means to listen. I’ve had several experiences which have brought home the power of silence while being present. I have discovered that our weekend adventure inspired me to tiptoe toward my edge for fully embracing change, and I have taken some steps backward. I am yearning to immerse myself in the transformative and healing waters of Movement Medicine again. “
