Stoffelina Verdonk
Vajra Dance・Khaita Joyful Dance

Stoffelina studied the connection between mind and body systems and the interrelationship, contact, between persons in movement, on School of New Dance Development in Amsterdam.

Meeting the Dzogchen master Chogyal Namkhai Norbu in 1986, she studied, practiced, and collaborated in his teaching. The Dance of the Vajra, a profound method to integrate, maintain the state of contemplation in one's body, energy, and mind, and move in harmony together, has been a natural way for her to discover Dzogchen. She has been teaching this practice since 1993.

From 1993 on she studied with her Master the 'Santi Maha Sangha', a profound way to deepen understanding of Dzogchen teaching, in 2015 she was authorized to teach to all sincerely interested. In 2016 she was certified as a Khaita Joyful Dances instructor.

Bringing alive the main points of presence and awareness, through dance, movement, meditation, contemplation, from a sitting position into the movement of life, she brings teachings to persons of all ages in cultural, medical, and educational institutions.
