About this Event
Unfolding and rising into this new day~
Surrendering to the process as it is.. and knowing..
Behind fear, is the most beautiful thing we could ever imagine ~
This movement session will be a practice of deep listening through your senses, awakening dormant codes of somatic cognition and unfolding authentic expression.
Breathing deeply and flowing freely~
Coming back Home within.
This dance floor will be a safe space to express your process to the outer worlds without needing words.
If you desire to converse, please move your conversation to the astroturf foyer outside the door, or take a breather for fresh air outside. Keep voices to a respectable volume when on the street outside.
All expressions are indeed welcome; please feel empowered to laugh, cry, scream and shout. This is a sober space, to embody your emotions fully without reliance on use of substance. Clear mind, centered hearts.
We are propagating a consent-based culture: please tune in with clear yeses and no's when engaging with others on the dancefloor. This is a judgement free zone. Here is a space to embody what's moving within you. No cameras or footage allowed. One of our team may take photos of the dj to share for their own profiles, yet this isn't a space for recording others in their movement journeys. This is a space of presence and acceptance of all that is.
This will be a space to move to the beat of your heart, the rhythm of the depths of your being, and the spaces in-between sounds.
Your movement is your authentic art, waiting to be poured out onto the canvas of space and time.

The performer alias of Keegan (they/them), little.fiery.one got their start in mixing music on a community radio station in 2003. Driven by their love of a diverse range of genres, styles and tempos, with an ear for unique boundary-pushing sounds. Punctuated with a variety of genres and styles, little.fiery.one sets are crafted for whatever space they are shared in; from journeyed ecstatic dance spaces, to late night explorations and musings, to inviting and warm daytime vibes, little.fiery.one seeks to offer sounds more unique than nostalgic, but with the hope that the space they create is familiar and inspiring.
Navin Sahjpaul (Music Therapist, BMT, Certified Yoga Teacher, Musician, Mental Health Advocate) is a South Asian man of colour who identifies as an Indo-Canadian (he/him). Both of his parents were born in India and immigrated to Canada at a young age with their families. He resides and works in Vancouver, BC and his life journey thus far has led him to pursuing a career path in being of service in this world. Navin is deeply passionate about well-being, mental health, community building, and healing, a believer in the idea that one can overcome life adversity and does not have to live an existence that consists mostly of pain and suffering.
:Sound Meditation Offering:
Navin will lead a Sound Meditation experience using Live Music (Acoustic Guitar, Voice, Synthesizers) with the intention of creating an ambient soundscape within which one can find stillness, tranquility, and peace. The music is a restorative experience, opening the heart and bringing up emotions and feelings, providing an opportunity for the body to release anxiety, tension, and stress that has been stored and accumulated within one’s nervous system over time. During the experience, folks are invited to find a comfortable space during the experience for meditation, journaling, gentle movement, and yoga.
=What To Bring=
•Comfortable clothing for movement, water bottle, journal, eye mask, blanket, and yoga mat if desired
We will be providing fresh spring water from Silverdale Spring or Kangen water depending on the day. Stay hydrated with clean clear water~!

We also have created a Facebook Group for our growing community. This is a space for expression about your experiences through dance, and also sharing events that are in resonance with the guidelines. Please join and invite your friends~
We would like to acknowledge that this event takes place on the ancestral and unceded lands of the hən̓̓qəmin̓əm̓ and Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh) peoples.
