Ecstatic dance is an invitation to explore your breath, your feet, and your overall physical, emotional and mental body through movement. As an investigator of your psyche and heart, you will learn to search for the hidden jewel as you come into a space of discovery. Beginning and ending in circle. There is no particular yoga or dance experience necessary.

Let us move and be moved. Dance and be danced.

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
