“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
What to bring:
Loose comfortable clothing and a Bottle of water

Our Ecstatic Dance/ Movement Meditation classes are 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. It is a practice that encourages moving with a grounded body, deepening our ability to be with what is, and connecting with others as we are, without the mask.
There is no experience necessary, just a willingness to move and be moved!
"Our bodies instinctively know what feels good or bad, right or wrong. However, often our heads get in the way. Ecstatic Dance is about finding our way through to what feels good. How can we use dance to consciously transform towards finding joy, without denying our anger or sadness? Ask yourself: what’s my body feeling in this moment? Does it feel good moving this way, or that? Does it feel nourishing to dance with another, or dance solo? Where do I most feel connected with Self? Let your body lead the way." ~ Abigail Harris
