Ecstatic Dance Haven
Haven of Ascension is a retreat destination and mind, body, spirit educational facility nestled between Baton Rouge and New Orleans located in the sweet spot of Ascension Parish. We welcome all those new to Ecstatic Dance and those familiar with this beautiful method of connection to ourselves and one another.
We offer an Ecstatic Dance session on the second week of the month. Thursday evenings from 7pm – 9:00pm
Thursday Evenings we offer a yoga stretch session an hour before the dance starting at 6pm for a donation of $15. Ecstatic Dance Haven begins at 7pm and ends at 9:00pm. We begin our dance with a community circle to set the intention for the evening and we close with a small offering of food and community share of what we received during the dance.
We welcome you to Haven of Ascension and look forward to building community with you at our monthly Ecstatic Dance Haven.
Ecstatic Dance – 3 Simple Guidelines
1. We Dance without shoes (or: We Dance Barefoot)
This allows us to connect more fully with the Ground (socks are OK)
If you have a physical condition that you need dance shoes, then OK
2. We Dance without words (or: We Dance with Body Language)
This makes it easier to be in a Meditative State
No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators
No Talking from the Dancers
3. We Dance as We Are
No Drugs/Alcohol, No Phones, No Camera/Video, No Scents, No Expectations, No Judgements, No Shoulds, No Oughts… Just Be Yourself; With Respect for Ourselves, the Space, and One Another.
