Shift to subbody (subconscious/subtle body) mode where body and mind melt into one through various conditioning. Becoming transparent body where dual boundaries are blurred. Open infinite creative source through dance in the pure state of life. It resonates with everything by being freely connected and separated with infinite patterns.



Qualia is a cellular language, very personal, relative, resonant and changing all the time. When we completely switch off thoughts, multidimensional signals that transcend time and space appear and disappear inside and outside the body. When we sense that subtle flow with body, the dance leaps into multiple dimensions. Qualia resonates everywhere between dual and nondual. As the infinite creative source, Qualia exploring will work for all genres of arts and life.
