As we all know, tango is sensual, social, uplifting, calming and peaceful, and such excitement that you could get obsessed with tango. As a natural follower myself, but also dancing the lead, I have made some interesting observations during my tango life. These give me a special point of view about the differences how we sense blissful moments while dancing tango. Let’s see how people perceive the effects of tango meditation.
There are many dancers, followers, leaders they see tango as a dancesport. Others find in tango a social game, where we hold each other and move to the music and have fun. There are couples just in their beginnings and still struggle with lead and follow. And a few dancers have found something very special in tango, tango meditation.
Sense blissful moments while dancing tango!it’s possible.
The demanding role of the leader.
This is where beginner leader, will have a difficult time to enjoy the dance. Multiple tasking, managing the dance floor and the music etc, will distract the leader’s attention.
Often they are overwhelmed with the situation. They simply chose to ignore the other couples around. At the end they bump into the one or other.
The follower has her eyes closed to sense blissful moments.
The follower role is less challenging compared to the leader role.
She trusts him to take care, she will have 100% attention to him and the music. Some followers (mostly beginners) often get dizzy or are afraid to close eyes, while they will miss out the peak sensation. I highly recommend try again and again until succeed. Women who dance with eyes open, will not get into that state of total relaxation.
With her eyes closed (like in any meditation practice), she will intensely feel the 3 elements:
- connection with the heart chakra
- The music
- The rhythmical movements
These elements are the key factors to experience tangasm.
The 3 powerful elements in tango meditation.
Eventually, her consciousness will rise into higher spiritual space. This state of tango meditation will allow her to feel blissful moments. She will sense a shower of wellbeing. Known as the “tangasm”, this phenomenon is totally independent of the partner itself. The level of dancing the leader has, plus the connection in the couple, is decisive.
I like to quote Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh :
“When we hug, our hearts connect and we know that we are not separate beings. Hugging with mindfulness and concentration can bring reconciliation, healing, understanding, and much happiness. The practice of mindful hugging has helped so many to reconcile with each other- fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, friends and friends, and so many others.”
The leader has a less advantageous position to feel the bliss.
The leader will definitely feel a certain state of wellbeing.
Why women get easily obsessed with Tango.
I see in this phenomenon of tangasm itself, the reason for the fact, that women in general get obsessed with tango. Men more or less keep a more relaxed or “practical” connection to the dance.
