About Alchemy Spinning™

Alchemy Spinning ™ is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice at the intersection of mindfulness and movement.

Inspired on Sufi Dervishes and other whirling dances of the world, Alchemy Spinning™ makes the physical, psychological and spiritual benefits of whirling accessible to everybody.

The Dance of the Yin Yang 

The Dance of the Yin Yang is an invitation to explore the whirling dance using the Alchemy Spinning platform through the two basic principles of our universe and of our existence, the feminine and the masculine.

Our exploration of feminine movement will follow the water element, which makes up 70% of our bodies. We wiil release all tensions to explore water’s ability to flow and be shapeless.

Our exploration of masculine movement will follow the Earth element,  and its ability to contain and give shape to the shapeless.

During the workshop we will work on several exercises that combine dance, yoga, breathing and meditation in order to connect deeply with our own bodies, balance the flow of energy in our chakras along our spines, and root ourselves firmly in the Earth, while charging up our energy and opening our hearts.  This is the key to avoid and manage dizziness.

After learning the basic whirling techniques, we will create and hold a safe space for the participants to whirl at will, but each person is encouraged to spin according to their own needs and feelings, entering and exiting the spinning space as they feel compelled to.

We will end up the workshop with an integration in order to connect deeply with our experience, ideas, insights, healing and creativity through art.

Open to everybody. No previous dance experience is necessary.
Date: December 3, 2016 1:15-5:15pm.
Venue: InterPlay, 2273 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, CA, USA.
Cost: $55 Early Bird until November 20. $65 after November 20.

Journey to the Core, Alchemy Spinning Workshop at Butopia

Journey to the Core, Alchemy Spinning Workshop at Butopia

September 9-11, 2016

Journey to the Core, Alchemy Spinning Intensive Workshop by Raquel Boluda at Butopia, beautiful Sanctuary for Embodied Arts on South Whidbey Island, WA.

Alchemy Spinning™ is a powerful and yet accessible whirling practice at the intersection of mindfulness and movement, that induces a state of expanded consciousness.

This Journey to the Core Alchemy Spinning™ workshop will take us on a spiral journey towards the core of our being, where we can discover and unleash our own power to heal ourselves, our relationships, and the world.

In our core we will connect with Fundamental Goodness, self-confidence, empathy and compassion, and we will explore how to take and project these core treasures back in an outward spiral towards an illuminated society for the benefit of all beings.

We will take a deep dive into the Alchemy Spinning™ practice, using a combination of dance (from different dance modalities,) movement, breathwork, and contemplative art making techniques,  as well as teachings and inner technologies adapted from the Sufi dervishes and Shambhala Buddhism.

We will learn how to connect with our vertical axis, which connects Heaven and Earth through our bodies along our spine;  and with our horizontal axis –which crosses our heart and projects along our arms in order to allow our core being to manifest in this world.

Together we will practice how to root ourselves in the Earth, how to make energy flow along our spine, and how to balance our brain hemispheres.

Using rhythm and repetition, contraction and expansion, we will delve into the fundamentals of spiral movement, while connecting these inner spirals within with the larger spiral movements of our planet, our solar system, our galaxy, and beyond.

At different times we will create open spaces for group whirling, as well as open spaces for integration and sharing.

This workshop is open to everyone. No previous dance or whirling experience is required.

Date:  Sept 9 – Sept 11, 2016, Friday evening 7pm-9:30pm, Saturday 10am-6:00pm, Sunday 10am-5:00pm

Venue: Butopia, Whidbey Island, WA.

Cost: Full Tuition $260. Early bird $225 until August 9.
