  • Sunday Dance Returns - ONLINE!

    Needs a location

    Sunday Dance is an ongoing (currently 'virtual') moving-meditation- conscious-ecstatic-dance-gathering. Pay Attention: Whole and present - WE ARE NEEDED NOW. During these rapidly changing and uncertain times, we can dance to ease the uncomfortable tension. We can dance to replenish and recalibrate our energies. We can dance to reveal the wisdom locked inside our bodies. With skilled guidance, we slowly and deeply warm-up and drop in to our bodies. Our individual dance begins to emerge through a gesture, a shape, some repetition and lots of mindful breathing. We move into faster rhythms as we begin to peel back layers of resistance, flowing, shaking, spinning or even lying down, as sharply or as gently as the body requires and maybe engaging our voice in a chant or hum or whisper to enhance the experience (all participants are muted during the movement section) and reach a peak of release that opens us to a lighter state of being. In the stillness that follows the release we can notice what has shifted, what is revealed. After a brief closing circle (after which class is over) there is time for sharing with the group if you choose. Through electronics, we are building the collective muscle of connection through the ethers. This session is not recorded. Most weeks are facilitated by Nina Smith Though there are costs to run MeetUp and Zoom this class is offered free of charge. Donations in any amount are gratefully received on Venmo @NinasMyth.
