Looking for a state of no conflict
Fifteen years ago, Robert Steijn fell in love with the way Hiah Park used dance to open up to a spontaneous dancing body in a workshop. As Park states herself: “Ecstasy is a sensation which is encountered in our hearts. It is seeing and hearing with the heart rather than just with the eyes and ears. When dance becomes meditation, it flowers into love, and this flowering is a movement into the divine.” Inspired by the spiritual dimensions of her teachings, which go beyond pre-conceived forms in order to search for the pure energy in movement, Steijn started an investigation into the intimacy of being human while dancing. Now, Park and Steijn lead a two-day workshop together, sharing their practices with each other and the participants.

Park has received a master of arts degree in dance and has taught Korean dance and ethnology – as well as sound and movement improvisation – at universities. Since her initiation as a mudang in 1981, Park has travelled extensively, performing shamanic ritual dance, trance dance, and traditional Korean dance. She is based in Vienna and well known for her workshops and individual sessions.
