Bridging the gap between yoga and spirituality, between the east and west, masculinity and femininity
The two spirited jungle cat brajan is a dancer and an aerialist who uses character and movement to create stories that strike an emotional chord and change people’s perception of gender and the human spirit. He has been training aerial and dance for three years after having an epiphany moment in which he woke up to his natural gifts and purpose in life: to inspire others through dance and expressive freedom. In the last two years, he has worked closely with circus artists and nomadic yogis at Momentom Collective performing and teaching at Cosmic Convergence and Envision Festivals along with several places in Central America, Bali and California.
Brajan believes in the power of body wisdom, of the body-mind intuition, the tantric principles of moving energy with breath sound movement and the importance of working with the emotional/energetic body.
On stage, Brajan takes the spectators on a journey of themselves. Seeing Brajan on stage is to take part of the experience of being seen with him because of his vulnerability and use of theme. His inner journey shows through in the art form, creating audience involvement at the deepest level with the performance. To him, it comes down to creating a somatic experience, to make people feel the performance in their body. Transformation is the goal.
As a way of being in service to other nomad yogis and artists looking to find their feet in their passion in their field or to find comfort in the fear inducing unknown and leaps of faith. Brajan provides 30 min free consultancy for anyone looking for support and guidance. In these sessions, Brajan provides a thorough assessment of blockages & trauma's full picture and using the tools to change behaviour, change beliefs emotions and thoughts, modifications, optimize, release, bring to surface.
“Be a big red hot man,” she puffs, raising her shoulders and making a macho face, “all rebellious and restless and ambitious. And be a soft, warm, nurturing “woman”—here she softens her features and goes all willowy—“dispensing thoughtful blessings with loving kindness.”
“It would be interesting to see if I could actually be both at the same time,” I muse.
“Are you familiar with the concept of the epicene?”
“Isn’t that like being androgynous?”
“No, the difference between androgynous and epicene is exactly my point. Androgyny is a melting down of the gender distinctions into a single fuzzy neutral blah. But the epicene person—the model citizen for the Drivetime, by the way—is one who’s both fervently masculine “and vividly feminine. Not the grey, odourless pal that comes from eliminating the contradictions, but the magenta menthol spermatic emerald clitoral saffron that comes from weaving the contradictions together with their full pungent glory intact.”
