What we're about

London Active Meditations Group is for those of us who are interested in inner personal growth and spiritual self-development and includes:

- Unique Active Meditations designed to bring a new quality of ease to our busy, pressured lifestyle. These meditations often focus on the body to release tension so that we can relax more deeply into our essence.

- Experiential Self-Development workshops held once or twice a month such as: Trauma Release work, Bioenergetics, Inner Personal Power and Tantra.

- Meditations, Dance Events and Socials in the Parks and Forests around London - These events are held during the warmer months in the beauty of Nature.

Active Meditations are the synergy of movement and meditation and offer an accessible approach to quietening the mind via the use of specific movements, which can include shaking, breathing, jumping, catharsis, dancing and whirling before entering a space of stillness and silence. As with all meditation, the aim is to allow the mind to be quiet and go beyond the mind to access the deeper parts of yourself.

WHAT IS THE DAY ABOUT?
We're providing Londoners with a kind of sanctuary space to dance, be themselves, 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.

So there is this interesting phenomenon called "Entrainment" which occurs when different vibrating objects/ particles/ or even people come into proximity: they will often start, after a little time, to vibrate together at the same frequency.
They “sync up/ or entrain,” sometimes in ways that can seem mysterious.

At Ecstatic Dance London we seek to raise the vibration of each of our dancers, but also as a community, to help spread inner peace, joy, relaxation and, a kind-hearted soul connection with your wider circle.

Through music, dance, creative movement, body-mind integration practices, and a powerful drumming circle, we invite you to co-create this day of togetherness with us and RAISE OUR COLLECTIVE VIBRATION!

During the day you will have the chance to dance and dive into a selection of some very beautiful and unique movement & drumming practices.
We hope you can join us! xx

“Drum sound rises on the air, its throb, my heart. A voice inside the beat says, "I know you're tired, but come. This is the way.” ― Rumi
