Ecstatic Dance mixed with Focusing
May 1, 2016 : 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Our next Ecstatic Dance:
Sunday, May 1st from 3:00-5:00pm
The Blue Ridge Center for Chinese Medicine
This month we will explore how Focusing can lead us into our dance with a deep felt sense. Focusing is a technique that helps us receive insight from our bodies. To me Ecstatic Dance and Focusing are similar as they are not about Spiritually Bypassing into bliss, but instead a way to tune into the body to process some of our “stuff”. Often by the end we feel more clear and more connected with ourselves and with the world.
Do we dance for a full 2 hours? No
1st: We introduce the form of Ecstatic Dance as well as the theme for the day.
2nd: The group is led in a gentle and meditative warm-up to begin embodying the theme.
3rd: We go into the Ecstatic Dance Wave for about an hour and 10 min. The last 10 minutes can be in deep stillness.
4th: We end with the invitation to share anything about our experience with the group.
What is Ecstatic Dance???
This is a free-form movement experience in a conscious and supportive space with movers of all ages and abilities. The music is from many genres and builds into an arc that gently brings us into stillness. This form was created by the movement shaman, Gabrielle Roth and has offered healing and transformation world-wide.
