From Maia Earth Village, we host global dialogues from our unlikely lifestyle and location here, where people from around the world do tend to visit to experience how we live.
Our innerdance work is an energy healing modality that has organically spread across the world since 16 years ago. It is a profound practice that utilizes music, vibration and sound which has been applied by doctors, psychologists, and many therapists across many disciplines. From our Earth Village in Palawan, we have been studying the effects of music on the brain and autonomic nervous system, particularly on the body's circadian rhythms and how our mind synchronizes throughout the day and the year's seasons.
From Maia Earth Village, dialogues, trainings and research programs are conducted on the many interesting connections between music, body movements and the brain. We are passionate in understanding how vibrations and dance can alter human beliefs, behaviour, health and lifestyles. Our global dialogues share our findings, and every year now, we travel to Europe to hold talks on these interesting matters with very rapt audiences.
In Maia, we are in the process of building and designing music studios and classrooms that benefit facilitators from around the world as well as the local Filipino families we take care of here who are economically challenged. Music is an integral part of learning especially where Eastern tribal cultures still harness the right brain hemisphere's sonic spaces untouched by colonial influence.
We are currently planning the creation of recording and music production studios in Maia, spaces that provide musical instruments and training programs for our local children here, who are amazingly talented but do not always have the opportunities to develop them.
