Ecstatic Dance – Henri Richanbach
Ecstatic Dance and Freedom are synonymous. Wherever one is on their path, free~form dance, the spirit of music, and community beckon as pathways to joy, healing and liberation. Dancing free in soulful expression is timeless and universal. The Ritual that is Ecstatic Dance cultivates authenticity, soulful community connection, and ones unique relationship to the Great Spirit that moves us all. Each dancer is encouraged to dance from the inside out with what is real in the moment, in a safe container that is held in respect and love for everyone’s unique process of liberation. The dance floor is a talk free space. The music played is through all genres and speaks to the cultural genius of incredible artistic achievement (AKA great music to dance to!) Come in comfortable clothing to move in, come well hydrated and bring your dancing spirit.

saith-yoga-nathan-gangadeenSaith Yoga – Nathan (Saith) Gangadeen
The heart of classical Yoga introduces a powerful technology for shifting consciousness, literacy, experience and life from an egocentric pattern and culture to a more mature and evolved, awakened, integral and holistic Life and Experience that flows with the Unified Field of Reality. What we call the ((Aum Zone)). We engage clear focus and full presence within the body, mind and soul as we slowly move through poses, feeling the sense of stopping time as we fully engage our Self. This Yoga awakening teaching comes with the cultivation of a higher Integral Literacy and AUM Script that is Holistic, that awakens the Body, the MindBody, the HeartMind, the Whole Person, and thus the key to Well Being and Flourishing. This… Is the ((Yoga)) of yoga.
