Life is a constant flow of endings and beginnings. Being in honest relationship with the essence of this is one of the secrets to balance in this life. Being in the practice of letting go. Being in the practice of starting over demands presence and a willingness to allow the cycle to continue. It is all a part of the same wheel turning anyway. Isnt it? We will explore this through movement and Dance.

Ecstatic Dance is a term being used now around the world to describe the ancient form of trance dance. This dance is being used as a healing modality to investigate and uncover parts of the psyche through movement . Instead of talk therapy there are those of us who need dance therapy. To shake, jump, and dance the story and move into a space of the authentic self.

From the Beginning of time we have Danced. We have spun around the fires of humanity and moved to the beat of the earths pulse. We have sounded into the mystery and found ourselves in crevices of the ethers, shaking our bodies into the place where love has made home.

Movement is a language. It is a way to speak what is unspeakable. It is a way to communicate. It is a way to listen. Watch the way a child moves. Watch an infant wiggle. To Dance is in our bones. It is Ancient.

We live in a culture that is constantly telling the individual what is acceptable culture and what is not acceptable culture. We live in a time that is craving a culture rooted in spiritual intelligence. When we release the inhibition and let go into our feet and bodies, we are creating a new culture.

This Dance is a Modality for Revelation. This movement is a path for healing. For Growth. For Deepening into the self
Be Brave. Be Courageous. Be the Dance
