Ecstatic Dance Unity - San Diego
Embark on a soul-stirring journey at Ecstatic Dance Unity in San Diego, featuring the mystical rhythms of artist Soul Salaam!
A trailblazer in the Ecstatic Dance movement, Soul Salaam played a vital role in opening Ecstatic Dance Oakland as one of its first Dj’s and has performed alongside renowned artists. Ecstatic Dance Unity embraces three simple, yet profound guidelines to foster deeper connections and transcendent experiences.
1. We dance barefoot, allowing our souls to merge with the earth.
2. We dance without words, communicating through the universal language of movement.
3. We dance as we are, embracing our authentic selves in a judgment-free space.
We commence the evening with a sublime sound healing session, orchestrated by The Church of Sacred Sound. This harmonious beginning attunes our hearts and minds to the cosmic vibrations permeating the event.
Throughout the night, indulge in divine refreshments such as sacred cacao elixirs, herbal tonics, and nourishing organic food and snacks. Local live painting artists will weave their creative magic, crafting an immersive tapestry of visual delights as we dance the night away.
Explore the enchanting offerings of local vendors, and immerse yourself in the healing sanctuary of our dedicated tea service room, where you can experience transformative modalities like massage therapy. This sacred gathering is a celebration of the potent synergy between sacred geometry, consciousness, and our collective empowerment.
In the spirit of unity, free tickets are available for those who wish to contribute their time and energy through volunteer shifts as well as those who offer equipment, tapestries, or other decorative items or services. Please send an email to Everything@echo-phi.com to join our team!
Join us for an unforgettable night of mystical dance, transcendent music, and profound connection. Together, let us elevate our spirits, unify our hearts, and honor the infinite potential within us all through music, dance, and community!

This makes it easier to be in a Meditative State
No Verbal Instruction from the Facilitators
No Talking from the Dancers
