LIVE MUSIC Ecstatic Dance Meditation
Time & Location
About The Event
When most people hear of meditation, what immediately comes to mind is someone sitting silently in a lotus pose remaining still for many hours.
To enter into a meditative state, however, we don't need to be physically passive which many many find very difficult. There are active ways in which we can achieve a state of meditation, this can include our asana practice, many forms of exercise, singing and with the most ancient and arguably most potent way being that of dancing,
Far back in human history, we have used the power of dance to dive deep into our consciousness and break through to bliss. By dancing, we are able to calm the mind with its endless stream of thoughts and discover inner peace. You do not need to be a dancer to attend the class, it is about being in the moment, moving in a way that feels good to the individual, no judgment, eyes closed, stepping away from our busy minds and into a flow state.
Forget the dancer; become the dance. That is the meditation.

We are very fortunate to be joined by DJ Bogus and Zi Drums who will be playing live music taking us on a powerful journey through ecstatic dance to meditation and bliss.
There will be an introduction to ecstatic dance and a warm up, with an hour of ecstatic dance, followed by 15 minutes of stillness.
