SENSORY AWAKENING: Honouring The Sacred Union Of Life
Sat Feb 11 2023 at 07:00 pm to 11:30 pm
2111 Main St | Vancouver, BC
About this Event
Join us for a juicy evening of connection, exploration, and sensory play as we honour the sacred union within all beings.
Honouring Sacred Union is to recognize the God-Goddess inside ourselves; to experience the wholeness and balance of all things that serve Life. Weaving and balancing the divine Feminine and Masculine energies within our bodies, we experience a sense of harmony with ourselves, with others, and with the universe, igniting a deep sense of connection and intimacy with everything around us. Here we find the sacred center of all polarities, the healing antidote to the myth of separation.
Throughout the evening, we will embody the mystery in ways that allow us to participate more fully in the dance with life! You can expect specific practices to deepen into our bodies, weave meaningful connection with one another, and awaken our sensibilities to access greater pleasure and harmony.
What to expect:
- A safe and confidential container to express, connect, and explore
- Boundary exercises (exploring yes's & no's, communication practices)
- Guided meditation & breath
- Solo embodiment practices to connect inward
- Eye gazing & other partner exercises to connect outward
- Conscious touch and blindfolded sensory play
- Elixirs to heighten the senses
- Closing dance party with DJ MD (Michal Daniško)

About your Hosts:
Meigan Swanson (Expression Sessions) is an art therapist, early childhood interventionist, embodiment facilitator, and community builder. Her work focuses on empowering people to connect more fully to their authentic expression - through artistic creation, somatic awareness, interpersonal connection, and sensuality. As a long-time gymnast and avid dancer, she believes the body (and all its ways of feeling) allows direct access to deep healing and intuitive ways of knowing. She offers group therapeutic workshops for individuals of all ages. Her work is strongly influenced by the research fields of attachment theory (recently gaining a certificate in Somatic Attachment Therapy), trauma informed practice, and interpersonal neurobiology.
Samantha Hope (Sensing Ventures: Elemental Dance Meditation) is passionate about creating safe ritual spaces for play, dance and reconnecting to ones true wild nature through all the senses. She has been studying Dance Movement Therapy through West Coast Dance Movement Therapy, 5 Rhythms, Butoh, and other embodied trainings for the past five years. She is currently training in the Tantric Arts and focused on the sociology of sexuality in her BA. She has her 200 hour teacher training in Yoga through Karma Yoga Studios, and a Nature Moves Certificate through the EAT program out of Colorado, USA. Her passion is to guide people back to their internal power & authentic selves. Samantha believes that through the rediscovery of the communication of the body, one can release stagnant energy & negative mental patterns; re-emerging into the sweetness and juicy pleasure of life in yourself and with others.
