Ecstatic Dance is a monthly community gathering for people who love to Dance.

Join us and enjoy a safe and inspiring space to dance without talking, drinking, and the nightclub vibe. This is about self-expression, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with yourself and those around you. No booze, no shoes and no chit-chat on the dance floor helps us keep it intentional. Amazing music helps us keep it all about dance!

Guidelines:

  1. No talking on the dance floor (plenty of room to talk off-floor)
  2. Drug-Free, Smoke-Free, Alcohol-Free environment
  3. No photos or videos, cellphones muted and out of sight
  4. Care/Awareness for the space and each other
  5. Move your body however you wish
  6. You can dance alone, or with as many partners as (you) like to join. (If you’d rather not dance with someone, thank them for the offer by placing your hands in prayer position at your heart – Namaste.)

What to Bring:

  1. Loose-fitting clothes that let you move your body and free yourself
  2. Water and a water bottle.

Ecstatic Dance empowers people from all walks of life to freely express themselves, regardless of shape, size, and background. The liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance, and the fearlessness with which people move gives newbies permission and courage to dance without inhibition.

See you on the Dance floor!

Fee: $10 – $20 – an amount you feel comfortable paying
(if this is beyond your means please send me a private message, I would much rather have a powerful group energy than exclude anyone)

Thursday, April 11, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

with Becky Harblin and Terry de la Vega

Tonight, Terry and Becky will create an experience intended to guide you into a blissful state of deep relaxation and joy. 

Yoga Nidra – Known as “yogic sleep,” is a deeply restorative, ancient meditation practice. Begin the inward journey with a brief mindfulness meditation and pranayama breath work.Then lie down, supported with blankets and pillows, be guided to release chronic, deeply held stresses and tensions in body, mind, and spirit. Yoga Nidra practice, soothes the nervous system. renews vital energy, and increases well-being in body, mind, and spirit. All you need to do is breathe and let go into the Sound Bath.

Sound Bath – Relax into the harmonic sound of traditional singing bowls. The use of sound frequencies for healing, inner balance, and empowerment is an ancient knowledge. Sounds such as Gregorian chants, and eastern meditations techniques have been used in religious settings for centuries. Science has shown that listening too highly harmonic music can charge the cortex of the brain, reduce respiration rate as well as heart rate, and lower brain wave activity. Meditate or just be soothed with the peaceful sounds of Tibetan Singing Bowls.
