Enter an open space…. and with bare feet, explore the exhilarating feeling of moving your body freely… You are invited to move, play, connect, sweat, stretch, sound, unwind, renew, release, contact dance, improvise, transform…. Be true to yourself, while respecting others in the sacred space we create together. This is a safe and respectful environment that embraces ‘all ways’… It is a practice that supports the free expression of emotions and inner space through movement and music.
Our intention is self-exploration, connection, healing, expanding human potential and community building through freestyle ecstatic dance.
Warm-up: 20 minutes people arrive, stretch, move/dance and reflect on the intention for the dance to a gentle sound wave.
The Practice: 90 minutes of freestyle dancing to a large sound wave. Some guidance is provided, and we’ll let the music, the community and our own inner space direct our steps, our movements, our expression, our journey.
Closing Circle: 5 minutes of OM`ing and/or group sound making, and/or silence.
“My intention for these events is to offer a regular practice of ecstatic dance meditation. A particular class might provide a general introduction, explore a given theme or focus on a particular aspect of moving meditation. Come and honour your body through conscious movement and experience high energy and bliss in motion!”- Seth Newman
