About this Event
Welcome to our fortnightly Sunday morning ecstatic dance. Open to everybody from diverse cultural backgrounds, gender identities, all ages, size, shape and colour.
We start with an opening circle and cacao ceremony followed by free-from intuitive dance.
? CACAO CEREMONY
The morning starts with a short Cacao ceremony, a truly heart opening experience. Cacao is the raw, pure form of chocolate, made from the fruit of the cacao tree.
? ECSTATIC DANCE:
Ecstatic Dance is a free-form and conscious dance movement, held in a safe and sacred space. Dancing is movement medicine to heal the body plus it's also fun.
This journey is led by a live DJ set using different styles of music. The music always invites you to sink into your body and find your unique expression of movement. No DJ set is the same.
We start and end the dance in a circle together.
To create a sacred space on the dancefloor we have the following guidelines:
We dance as we are, without distractions.
We leave phones and conversation off the dancefloor.
We move connected to the ground with our bare feet (or in socks).
We respect ourselves and each other
