Dareyn’s most recent repertoire with this new set up is an invitation into discovering one’s own story of life, death, and ultimately, Self. The sentimental compositions takes the audience on a journey into exploring their inner 7 heavens, from seed to growth into enlightenment. Each heaven activates its own quality, as represented by the planetary energies based on their historical, esoteric, and psychoanalytical stories and interpretations in Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Jewish, and African sources. Audience is welcomed by an inviting interlude that brings in the energy of birth, Oneness, light and softness; aimed at preparing the (body, mind, and) soul for the journey through the 7 heavens.
