anza Duende ® is a training under all aspects of our lives, which allows us to value and elevate our existence by dancing. It leads us to discover the art being as we are and to open ourselves to the potential of our free and loving nature. This project has been created by Yumma Mudra * with the purpose of transforming our lives into an art practice. It comprehends different activities whose aim is to cultivate basic goodness in our daily lives. In our international trainings several teachers gather together their different artistic skills in order to offer a strong synergetic work that includes exercises on perception, intelligence and developing braveness, as well as on nourishing a spirit of joy and generosity. It is a long-term training that allows us to visit the very sources of form in our own mind and to discover our intrinsic potential so that we can work in all aspects of life as if we danced our lives.

The main goal of the Duende methods is to develop our perception of space, courage, the capacity to improvise, to create forms, to adapt ourselves to changes, to capture movements quickly, to express ourselves clearly and intensely, to communicate and to be flexible and generous when working with others. Danza Duende ® is a training that promotes ethics and joy in the transmission of art.

MAITRI

Living the colors of wisdom


The five Buddha families describe five basic aspects of manifestation which can beexperienced on every outer and inner level of being in each moment new. We all move through life with our individual patterns of behaviour and perception which are an expression of the dynamic interplay and potential of these five archetypical forms of energy. Each of the families can be experienced as awake or confused, depending on the approach we take towards it. In maitri space awareness practice we heighten and provoke these basic energy patterns by using colours and specific body postures. In this way we have the opportunity to experience and explore the dynamic play of these energies in all it’s manifold colours. We learn to trust the display of it’s expressive power in us and others and get a chance to expand our habitual emotional and perceptional repertoire. By befriending ourselves it dawns to us that we are nothing but a unique and precious dance of these five energies and their manifold variations.

"MAITRI" NIVEL 2 Living the colors of wisdom with Barbara Maertens & Yumma Mudra

The potential transformation of emotive states and the discovering of their intelligent source. A psychology study programme created by Chogyam Trungpa in the Naropa Institute, USA, and presented within the framework of the Danza Duende project by Barbara Maertens and Yumma Mudra. “Without fear, without hidden thoughts and without effort, we will let divine gestures, movements from unknown dances, songs never heard emerge from the space of mind. Dance must come out of vacuity, free from attachment, just like a rainbow that forms up in space. The gesture of dance is a reflection in the mirror of the mind”.

The Sanskrit word "Maitri" means love or unconditional friendliness. The maitri space awareness practice was developed by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a Tibetan mediation master and is based on the traditional teachings about the five Buddha families as well as other elements of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism.

She turns as a teacher in many countries since 1991. In 2004 she funded the Danza Duende Nomad School and work net, which proposes to dance life as a means of awakening our natural goodness in daily life.
