AwBd & Blue Lotus Soul School
This is for Souls who have an interest in plant medicine and sacred dance. You, who wish to raise your vibration and are open to receiving the messages that the Blue Lotus holds for you. This group met online for five weeks and began their sacred dances by drinking Blue Lotus (Nymphea Caerula) together.
AwBd Dance of Nefertum
We will dance a unique choreography inspired by temple hieroglyphs and the Blue Lotus as Katie intertwines her knowledge of sacred dances into a dynamically activating ‘Dance of Nefertum’. These meditative movements can be danced daily to connect and embody source light energies.
“Just wanted to share that after moving through my journey through my life as a little girl, young woman, mother to 4 and grandmother to 6… AWBD brought out the woman in me I never knew even existed. Never felt more close to other women than when we dance AWBD together.”
“Day 5 I felt the fear of appearing arrogant, then posted the pics and words per our assignment. Then I took a deep breath and realized: Those who don't want me to grow big are no longer going to be my focus. My focus is now growing into my own fullness. Eye-opening for me. Thank you Katie Holland!”
“Taking part on the online course with Katie revealed some new surprising, deep and significant revelations about my sensuality, which I wouldn't have arrived at without the help of their heart based work. Thank you to you both, keep going with this enchanting heart and important work!”
'“I am REALLY tempted to do it all again Katie. Will have to see the outcome of the next few weeks before serious consideration, but something to seriously look towards as a maybe reality. It would be so beautiful if it happened. Wouldn't it be weird if you had almost all of your first babies on this course all over again!!!!!!”
“This was quite an experience, and I am honoured to have shared the time with so many wonderful women, I felt more connected then I have been for a while, I am bright, sparkly even! I feel the experience has done me the world of good, as I sink into my bed shortly- but still buzzing! I am cat watching- playing”
“It was wonderful : still coming down! It was lovely to meet you: and feel your quality: your open heartedness. My crown feels wide open : I feel it now: I had not thought how easy it is to access consciousness! All sound now is "piercing" me. I'm now aware of another sense that was "shut down'.”
“Well I realised why I didn't vocalise much on Sat...think I was holding back. Driving to work on Sun at 8am and mulling over some crappy family conversations and got swept away with such sadness and rage and just did three huge roar/screams and sobbed for about 2 mins, then felt ok. Guess things are coming out!”
“Today I left Katie Holland – Awakened Bellydance in Germany as a completely different person than I entered on Friday. Miracles happened again. True magic. Inner alchemy. I can‘t wait to grow and expand, evolve and awaken further during the Awakened Bellydance FT”
“I am finding that I am becoming... Becoming more the authentic me and I absolutely love it, reconnecting with my essential self and I can see her when I was a child and I can see that she wasn't lost just covered over with stuff n gunge that doesn't belong to her /me. I am disentangling from it. Such a powerful process. I love it!”
“Dear Katie Holland and all you wonderful AwBd facilitators - I wanted to write a HUGE thank you and send masses of gratitude and love to you Katie Holland for deciding to gift this to us, and for each and every facilitator for offering such unique and special representation of the Chakras through every powerful dance and experience.”

“When I woke up this morning I was astounded, literally lying there feeling so different....the sense of wonderment was palpable. Also the stillness inside myself has increased dramatically. When I did an illumination tonight with a friend as part of my practise cases I could feel the shift in myself and how that was affecting my being and everything I am doing and all around me. The sense of presence in the room was stunning..quite literally, neither of us could move for quite a while afterwards. Incredible!! I'm really excited to see how all this integrates into my life now.”
“During the meditation I felt there was a tremendous shift in me. I felt emotional, also empowered and stronger. I seemed brighter and clearer in my mind going onto the dancing. There was a significant message I was hearing and few days later I was having conversations. This has now resulted in handing in my resignation (retiring) which felt a great weight off my shoulders and I am now embracing and preparing a new lifestyle after also going through cancer treatment... time for a change!!”
“Loved your classes. I'm older now so dance for pleasure and to keep fit but always ready to learn. Awakened Bellydance class great insight and having many spiritual experiences in my life helped me tune in to be calmer. I just felt happiness that us ladies were as one. We all carry baggage in our lives, some deal with problems easier than others. Luckily I cry in private and ask my angels to make me strong. Thank you Katie for lovely workshops and for making me aware of the shit that we deal with in life xx.”
“This was quite an experience, and I am honoured to have shared the time with so many wonderful women, I felt more connected then I have been for a while, I am bright, sparkly even! I feel the experience has done me the world of good, as I sink into my bed shortly- but still buzzing! I am cat watching- playing’. *Above all, watch glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places, Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” (Roald Dahl)
“Dearest Suzy and Katie, I would just like to send you both this message holding my deepest gratitude for the space and time I have shared with you and the circle of women this weekend. The events of this weekend have touched both my heart and soul. I know there is a lot of processing to be done now. I'm not sure what lies ahead but I know for sure it will look differently and more beautiful than it would have done a few days ago. Love and heartfelt blessings to you both for your love, holding and generosity. I hope our paths cross again soon xxx.”
“It was definitely unexpected, (not sure what I did expect but it wasn't tears, and so soon in the workshop). It was a very intense workshop and probably the experience that will last long after the other workshops have become a dim memory. It certainly took the rest of the afternoon to process one's feelings as there was such a range of emotion. You feel a complex mix of vulnerability and freedom, love and sadness. It certainly was a unique experience that I feel privileged to have participated in. Thank-you for sharing it was amazing!”
“I’ve just spent 5 days participating in the Awakened Belly dance facilitators training. This is the 3rd time I’ve been on facilitators training having done the 1st and 2nd ones and I wanted to share with you my thoughts about how I’ve experienced AWBD grow. It feels like the whole process of AWBD has gone through the alchemical stages within itself refining and transmuting into deeper spaces. The energy felt more activating and went deeper, I feel like it’s organically evolved, strengthened and intensified.”
“It was wonderful. I'm still coming down! It was lovely to meet you and feel your quality: your open heartedness. My crown feels wide open. I feel it now. I had not thought how easy it is to access consciousness! All sound now is "piercing" me now aware of another sense that was "shut down". Thank you for sharing your beautiful soul. That you be an example of knowing how to open gates that the heart sometimes will lock down. With gratitude for a lovely evening and new doors opened.”
“I took part in the most incredible process today. Whirling and whirling through fears, blocks and mind chatter into an open channel between earth and heaven, playing with light waves and travelling the universe, expanding myself beyond what I can physically touch. Then returning to my human body, residing in my heart, fully activated, fully feeling rivers of tears at the same time as ecstatic electricity. Thank you Katie Holland. Truly beautiful.”
“Dear Katie, thank you so much for this amazing lightful journey you just led us through! What a powerful tool to reconnect to your Self, to heal, open your heart and share your light! And a great reminder that we are all sisters and brothers from one family. Within my own belly dance practice I strive to feel all the energies more consciously and to make it a meditation, a spiritual practice. Thus I am very interested in your facilitator programme. Much much love to you from Wuppertal, Germany.”

Dance your dreams into the gold with me through AwBd. This is an opportunity for TranscenDance into Your own self-initiation of the Arc of Light. We now have an opportunity to ascend beyond the beyond as the collective consciousness illuminates and we re-discover our ability for 'synarchy' (being our unique self whilst co-creating in unity). What pivotal and unique role are You playing in this awakening?
“This was my experience during Awakened Bellydance with the founder Katie Holland facilitating yesterday. Fully activated, fully electrified, fully allowing every cell of my body to vibrate and sing with the universe, whilst feeling grounded and connected to the physical and the earth by the unconditional love flowing through the hands of the women around”
“I appreciate being held and guided through - on the surface, very simple, every day actions. Yet, to know the power of them (and realise my previous resistance to them was connected to that power). The power to stop time and empower my own innate ability to love and heal. It’s a gift that keeps returning.”
“Sunlight glistened on the snow topped mountains. Eleven women embarked on a journey of a lifetime, guided and supported by Katie Holland. We breathed, we feared but we trusted and within the safe, protected space of our room, we danced, allowing the music to shake up our bodies and free our minds. We let go and the layers began to peel away.”
“Together, we healed, allowing our minds to be free to think, to create and to manifest and to step closer to our bodies, to feel the emotions and energy rising through us. Deeper we delved into the closed off parts of ourselves, removing all obstacles and reinstating the power of the goddess, the women we truly are. We reached up, beyond ourselves, out into the universe, to the stars from whence we came.”
“Katie is woman, dancer, teacher and healer and I’m blessed to have been part of this unique, transformational experience, shared with a group of awesome women who I now call sisters and friends. With Katie’s guidance, I look forward to sharing with the beautiful women of the world, helping them to be free of the constraints that bind them and imbuing them with the power that is truly their own.”
“The way you looked at me Katie in Bulgaria made me believe that there must be something. The same kind of beauty inside and magical also that I see in other women and people. Also while practising AwBd in Bulgaria I realised how ‘small’ I was thinking myself. I got so much love and mirroring with you awesome sisters. That is changing and I believe in myself so much more, even though there is still lots to do.”
“I think what stands out for me was times I was really emotional and allowed to be just that with love and acceptance. There was no one trying to fix me or close me down. The emotion was accepted. I can remember sobbing on your shoulder Katie and you held me but at the same time kept facilitating. That felt very safe like… its fine to fall apart… keep on with it and we are still here and will be here when you are ready.”
“'Michelle and Katie ran theirs with sensitivity, grace and joy, yet it was full of power. After spending the last few years realising that my resistance towards women’s gatherings and femininity was actually more of a rejection of the way our society had been portraying these things, I have been slowly re-connecting with unknown parts of myself'.”
“I just wanted to thank you and Katie very much indeed for Tuesday’s Awakened belly-dancing and Inner dance. I know I have written briefly on Facebook but I also wanted to write something to you both at slightly greater length (which you could put on a website if you would like, although there’s no need!). It was a very joyful experience and I felt very well when I arrived home- many of my usual ‘pains’ were gone!”
“All in all I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for showing me something beautiful, special and powerful. I am beginning to save up so I can attend one of your awakened belly dance training courses, as I left your work shop with my spirit shouting 'YOU NEED TO GO AND LEARN THIS!' 🙂 I am keeping an eye on your workshops in the uk and hope to go to another one soon. Sending you thanks and happy smiles x.”
Whirling : No Dimension : The Journey Within
During this experience we will also work with the technical aspects of our bodies physicality; how to turn, to fully embody and expand from the inside out. 'Turning' into what is within enables us to transform the way we experience our inner and outer worlds by transporting body, mind and soul into flow and presence as we surrender to self and thus source.
Embodiment Through Movement
Five Awakened Bellydance sessions will form an integrative and grounded journey that will connect you deeply into your heart and the most illuminated version of you. Katie will guide you in movement, breath and visualisation to transform, transmute and embody your authentic, sovereign self. Following an innate fascination for dance and the profound healing it can give, sacred dances of the Middle East and Asia gave Katie insights into the depths of her bodily wisdom.
