Ecstatic Dance

Our monthly theme is “inner child”, with awareness of how do we evoke play instead of “work”? Playing an instrument, role play, playing with art, our bodies in movement, playing is a way to turn on joy, imagination, and to stimulate diverse areas of the brain. It’s a great way to get unstuck, out of old patterns and into ways of being thru innocent exploration. We will move thru 11/11 with dance and celebration. We will also have a cacao ceremony. Pls bring fav mug. Friends who join from home pls make your own, or have a fav beverage.
It is a free-form dance practice where participants can gather to dance to music without the need of following the instructions of a leader. In Ecstatic Dance the music is the leader and participants are free to weave their way through the different soundscapes.

Dance Guidelines

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.
