About the Event

Ecstatic Dance is all about dancing like no one is watching you; dancing without the judgment of others and dancing without limits.

Ecstatic Dance Specifics

The group will be led through a cacao blessing, this will be held by Charlotte Donachie (Astrologer, and Shamanic healer) We will learn about the cacao we are drinking, and how it was prepared.

The ceremonial cacao that one drinks in our ceremony was sourced, made, and prepared with love and intention.

We will be guided to set our intentions, give thanks and drink the delicious cup of warm chocolate.

Warm-up: Breath/

We will be joined by Anna Brook (Breathwork Coach) Anna supports individuals to use the breath to process, release blocks, shed layers and create strong intentions for the direction you wish to move in so you can live freely again. She will support the group to use the breath whilst beginning to move and reflect on the intention for the dance to a gentle sound wave.

The Practice: 90 minutes of freestyle dancing to a large sound wave with a mixed genre music set. Featuring Live DJ with amazing sound system. Some guidance & facilitation will be provided. And then we will let the music, the community and our own inner space direct our steps, our movements, our expression, our journey. You'll be led by a live DJ Charlotte who will start with low tempo melodic, soulful and heartfelt tunes. The music will gradually build in tempo and energy and you'll find that your body will just go with it. There is no choreography or facilitation for the main dance. You can dive deeply into the heart and body, connecting and expressing, letting go and having fun. Moving your body in any way that you wish.

Hannah will end the ceremony with a sound bath. "Sound frequencies help us to drop from the mind into the body, stabilising the nervous system and releasing old, stagnant energies that hold back our thoughts and feelings.

This is a super special evening and we can't wait to see you there.

Relaxation : 30 minutes of Deep Relaxation with crystal bowl sound bath.
