Earth Prayers

April 18

Dance your prayers, sweat your dreams and express your love for Mother Earth through feet on the floor and intent. Dance to four directions; heal yourself and the earth through joy, movement and embodied awareness. There’ll be an alter with symbols of healing for Earth Day you can add to.

D.J.: Kaia

Doors open and music on at 7:00; Cacao served at 7:15 for those who wish; 7:30 opening circle

Ecstatic Dance is a safe space container for letting go, a place to step out of time and into the moment, through breath and movement medicine.  With music as our muse, we follow our intuition allowing our own unique dance to unfold.  Starting with an opening circle, we settle into our bodies,  and then begin our movement journey to carefully selected musical soundscapes. Eclectic mixes from around the world, with sounds from shamanic drum journeys, electronica, EDM, alternative, Soul, and many other inspired artists and genres, with live musical accents and messages from the facilitators.  We gently build to a crescendo with the unique sound journey of the night, and then drop back down into the still spaces of ecstasy. All welcome!  This isn’t a ‘date’ space, it’s a safe space.( but people have met their life partner here on the dance floor) No partner needed.  This dance is for you! Just bring yourself wherever you are at. Please respect your space and that of those around you. This is a movement practice, to get the full experience talking is discouraged on the dance floor. Dress comfortably. We sweat! Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.  “Sweat your prayers, exercise the demons, explore your chi, release endorphins naturally through movement, Feel all the feels, Have fun! surprise yourself, Rock out! meditate, access the flow state, samadhi, Ecstasy… ”
