Earthheart Dance is a method that utilizes knowledge of body and self as well as with communication and the creative force in each individual. The method aims at strengthening a person’s confidence, cooperative faculty and creativity. These are universal basic requirements for a healthy existence, age and other interests notwithstanding. When people are content and believe in themselves, they can communicate their truth and become creative instead of being destructive, which results in wellbeing, a sense of belonging and peace in their own lives as well as on Earth.
