Euphopria Unleashed : Ecstatic Dance & Immersive Sound Journey
You are invited to take a step into the realms of true release & ease-filled bliss for a Live DJ Ecstatic Dance & Immersive Sound Healing experience, enhanced with community sharing of ceremonial cacao.
- Connect with a like-minded community in a substance free space.
- Explore free movement in a supportive judgment-free environment.
- Experience deep healing and inner peace through the power of live sound.
Discover your own freedom as we explore the 5-rhythms of sound with DJ Umami & the sound-healing artists of Energy Wheel.
We will begin the evening by circling with a cup of ceremonial cacao & intention setting. Cacao is the purest form of chocolate and has been used to facilitate spiritual journeys across Mesoamerica for over 4,000 years. When infused with intention in ceremony, this heart-opening elixir creates a deep sense of unity & purpose.
No experience necessary! Ecstatic Dance is for all-levels & is a practice that encourages you to move or find stillness in only ways that feel natural to you. It’s intended to be a journey of self-discovery through dance that encourages free self expression and the letting go of inhibitions.
Your facilitator Angie Hyse (also known as DJ Umami) will introduce the concept & guidelines of Ecstatic Dance so that each individual feels supported before the experience begins.
The heart-beat of the evening will be held by DJ Umami, weaving an auditory tapestry of liquid ambiance, melodies and rhythm. The music will follow a bell-curve of sound that will eventually lead you into a state of stillness for the live immersive sound healing experience.
Float through resonance with Imane El Ghazouani & Jared Silvia of Energy Wheel. Together, they combine ancient sound healing instruments with experimental electronic and synth music. You can sit upright or find yourself lying down for this experience. Individuals who choose to lay down, usually, experience a deep relaxation response through a shift in brain wave activity that represents what many call ~ a euphoric stillness ~
Research has proven that experiences like this offer several therapeutic benefits which promote deep states of rest that encourage creative and critical thinking.
Doors open at 5:30PM – Please arrive early as doors close before the cacao ceremony at 6:00PM sharp to allow for an uninterrupted flow of the Euphoria Unleashed experience.
Limited spots are available – let your loved ones know, mark your calendars, and secure your spots! We can not wait to share in the magic!
