We are excited to announce that The Great Mystery !? Ecstatic Dance will be held the first & third Friday of every month! Dance we shall!
Join us at Being Space for an evening of intention and expansion through ecstatic dance, community, and connection.
Noetic, our resident DJ, weaves together music that is timely & timeless, creating a soundscape collage of IDM, cosmic classical, abstract pop, spiritual jazz, digital folk, downtempo bass, and experimental sound design.
We’ll begin the evening with Primal Voice, a group vocal experience which explores the range of human voice through humming, chanting, singing, and laughing.

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.
