This will be the last ecstatic dance before we break for the summer months.

So let’s dance in this light of summer, create some breathing space, some hot hot heat…

Summer solstice is a time of fullness of life, blessings, and celebration. A time where internal desires are manifested.
The beginning of summer can represent a time for purification, renewal and healing, a time to release the sadness, fears, and pains from your life.
A time for renewed energy.

Dance is a wonderful way to release, and burn up whatever heat you need to fuel your fire.

Come dance, and be danced. Move and be moved.
Dream dreams in motion, so that they may be manifested.
Release, and be present with your chi, your life force energy.
You are an amazing being.
Set fire to your soul…

Ecstatic Dance is a term being used now around the world to describe the ancient form of trance dance. This dance is being used as a healing modality to investigate and uncover parts of the psyche through movement . Instead of talk therapy there are those of us who need dance therapy. To shake, jump, and dance the story and move into a space of the authentic self.

From the Beginning of time we have Danced. We have spun around the fires of humanity and moved to the beat of the earths pulse. We have sounded into the mystery and found ourselves in crevices of the ethers, shaking our bodies into the place where love has made home.

Movement is a language. It is a way to speak what is unspeakable. It is a way to communicate. It is a way to listen. Watch the way a child moves. Watch an infant wiggle. To Dance is in our bones. It is Ancient.

We live in a culture that is constantly telling the individual what is acceptable culture and what is not acceptable culture. We live in a time that is craving a culture rooted in spiritual intelligence. When we release the inhibition and let go into our feet and bodies, we are creating a new culture.

This Dance is a Modality for Revelation. This movement is a path for healing. For Growth. For Deepening into the self
Be Brave. Be Courageous. Be the Dance
