What we're about

DANCE OUT LOUD - LGBTQ 5 Rhythms & Open Floor Movement, Art & Meditation Dance Class

"Bodhi holds the space brilliantly with a solid thread of guidance throughout whilst at the same time giving each person complete freedom to express and play. There is a safe space, acceptance and warmth that lends a sense of ease in exploring dance both alone and in connection with other dancers". SB - photographer

I love this practice. The first time I danced the Five Rhythms nearly 12 years ago my whole body was filled with an energetic 'YES'.... The dance touched me deeply and profoundly. So deeply, that I would like to share that taste of connection between mind, body and heart with you.

DANCE OUT LOUD - is a gay community-focused group that is mixed and open to both gay and non-gay people who love to dance...

The 5 Rhythms can be seen as a dance workout, a social event or a deep spiritual practice when you get into it. People come to see this movement practice more as a meditation and a therapeutic meeting without words. It can be fun, profound, silly, serious and playful.

Welcome and join us today on this amazing path!!

Vacation 2021 - FRIENDSHIP & CONNECTION
*New Uk Venue and dates for 2021

With all the uncertainty around international travel for the summer of 2021 (still), who knows what the situation will be in September and it would be unfair for ‘Sundance’ if we had to cancel/change dates again at short notice.
So on a practical and logical level - with all these factors to hold - we have decided to have Vacation 2021 in the UK.

Vacation 2021 at Noddfa Retreat Centre - Wales

Noddfa is a Welsh word meaning refuge, a place of welcome and peace, a place where you can regain energy. A delightful house, with the beauty of the surrounding hills and the sea - run by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Mary.

Noddfa is located on the North Wales coast in a village called Penmaenmawr, which sits in the foothills of the wonderful Snowdonia National Park and Snowdon itself. It has a train station Penmaenmawr with an easy connection from London Euston via Chester or Birmingham.
The house has beautiful gardens and two Labyrinths to explore… Just 10 minutes walk from the sea.

This will be a different Vacation than others that we have held before, due to the magic and charm that is the house and what the spiritual community brings to this… The Sister’s welcome us as a GBTQ men’s group.

The house has 25 single rooms and therefore a maximum of 25 participants for the whole group - each person will have their own room. So including teachers and our wonderful organiser ‘Alex’ this means we only have 22 places. (Couples we will message privately as there are a few twin rooms available)

In the age of social-distancing - let us create social-space so we can come together.

“The next Buddha may take the form of a community” – Thich Nhat Hanh

A freedomDANCE retreat for gay men with Alex Svoboda and Bodhi.
Vacation means to vacate one-self and has traditionally been seen as a spiritual journey or retreat;
– to create space away from our everyday affairs
– to stand back, reflect and
– find a deeper connection with the physical, emotional and spiritual domain within our experience.

This will be an embodiment movement meditation retreat that creates deep connection inside our creative bodies to ignite change from our core. Crossing this bridge engages the heart, opening us up step by step, so we can learn to trust our natural instincts.

Come to our eighth Vacation to explore and celebrate together:
- a deep connection with yourself
- a welcoming community that can see and support you as you are
- a capacity to embrace playfulness

Dance, movement, creative activities, enquiry and sharing.

Noddfa Retreat Centre

Cost
- Early-bird: £275 until 30th June 2021
