Khaita means Harmony in Space. The purpose of this joyous practice is to promote harmony in the individual and between people and their environment through dance. Dance is the best way to harmonize movement and sound, to develop an understanding of space and to improve our ability to relate to others. Through dance we can discover our inner harmony and how this resonates with the harmony of the universe.
In 2011 Chögyal Namkhai Norbu started collecting contemporary songs performed by young Tibetan artists, choosing them from hundreds based on their meaning and melodies. Made up of already existing or new choreography, the collection has become a popular form of collective dance.
