What we're about

Welcome to the Ecstatic Dance Temple®
We run Ecstatic Dance, Conscious Movement events held in healthy, smoke-free, drug and alcohol-free environments.
More info on our events here: https://urubu-events.eventbrite.com/

Without drugs or alcohol express yourself. Sweat your prayers on the dance floor. Let it out and connect with yourself and with others in a fresh new way. Breathe deeply and ground your attention inwards. The invitation for this evening is to begin to quiet the mind and enter into your body temple, befriending all that you may find.

"Each of us is a moving centre, a space of divine mystery. And though we spend most of our time on the surface in the daily details of ordinary existence, most of us hunger to connect to this space within, to break through to ecstatic states of consciousness, to be swept away." -Gabrielle Roth

Ecstatic Dance/ Movement Meditation is an opportunity to find freedom in our own ability to feel and move with all that is and with everything that arises in our body, heart and mind! This practice encourages moving with a grounded body, focus, abandon, grace and ease.

There is no experience necessary, just a willingness to move and be moved!
Classes are facilitated by Seth Newman, Seth is an Art of Being© graduate, IATE Graduate, Bioenergetics practitioner, certified Trance Dance teacher and is the pioneer of live music ecstatic dance events in the UK, with his band the Urubu Collective. He brings a wealth of experience holding heart centred spaces.

A space, to move, express, stretch, connect, unwind and be yourself through free-style dance. There’s no talking on the dance floor which creates a great vibe for embodying freedom, fun and health conscious community.

WHAT IS THE DAY ABOUT?
Each of our Sunday Sessions offers Londoners a kind of sanctuary space to come and dance, be themselves, dive deep, have fun, release stress, connect with their body, and stretch themselves beyond their usual way of being.
You can attend the whole day or just drop-in for single workshops. No experience necessary.
During the day you will have the chance to dance and dive into a selection of some very beautiful and unique movement & relaxation practices.

SCHEDULE:
◈ 12:30pm - 3pm DANCE OF AWARENESS: similar in structure to the Five Rhythms wave developed by Roth (1999), but has been adapted to take account of psychodynamic theory and developmental psychology. The phases of the cycle follow themes of human development from pre-birth through to around five years. This is the time period associated with the growing sense of self which becomes embodied through early experience, and which sets the patterns for adulthood. This gives the mover the opportunity to re-experience the formative years of early development, explore old imprints, and discover new patterns of moving and relating.

We will explore 6 cycles throughout the session: Sensing, Grounding, Expressing, Releasing, Connecting and Completing following an energetic wave of charging and discharging over the course of a session.

◈ break 45min (selection of teas/coffee will be available in the kitchen)

◈ 3:45pm-5:30pm SUNDAY SOUND SANCTUARY - Sound Journey/ Gong Bath with Dee & Seth: Soothing sounds to support deep relaxation, calm and wellbeing. Release the stress and tension of daily life in London. Our Sound Journeys are an opportunity to let go and reconnect with yourself through deep relaxation practices and guided meditation while basking in Cosmic, Ethereal Vocals and Electronic Soundscapes, Textures, Crystal Singing Bowls, Gongs and much much more . A Unique & Beautiful Experience on Sunday afternoon!

◈ break 30 min (selection of teas/coffee will be available in the kitchen)

◈ 6pm - 8:15pm ECSTATIC DANCE TEMPLE - Ecstatic Dance/Movement Meditation with *Cacao Gratitude Circle* (with sound system and optional of Silent Disco Headphones to fully immerse into the music! We will provide complimentary Raw Vegan Cacao - super yummy, the best in London for sure! )
◈ 8pm - Workshop ends

◈ 8:15pm -8:45pm Optional social with refreshing fruit to nourish you

TAP INTO YOUR CREATIVE FLOW STATE
Welcome to the Creative Flow Dojo®
Join me for these daily Creative Flow Guided meditations for accessing optimal states of health, wellbeing, and creativity. I am looking forward to introducing these beautiful morning practices to you. and if you've attended before, welcome back!

- Creative Flow - The optimal body-mind state of consciousness where we feel and perform at our best.
- Dojo - A dōjō is a space for immersive learning and practice. This term is traditionally used within the field of martial arts.

Many of us know what it’s like to be in an optimal state of health and wellbeing, what we call a state of creative flow - but do we have to just wait for inspiration to strike... or is there a way that we can "hack the zone’?
A regular creative flow meditation practice is a proactive way to wire your nervous system for health, wellbeing, and creativity.

In these morning sessions, I will guide you through different daily creative flow meditations to tune your body and mind to the best of who you are.
I hope you can join us!
Warm regards,
Seth
