Halifax - Ecstatic Dance Sun, May 21, 11a. Ecstatic Dance is a general term for free-form (unchoreographed) somatic movement practice.

Dance becomes a healing modality as you develop a better connection to your mind, body, and energy. This lineage of ecstatic dance is unique. Guidance for being fully grounded in your body and connected to Earth energy is a key component for feeling safe and secure to fully express yourself. Drawing in Earth energy allows you to more fully step out of the mind and into the body for a deeper healing experience. In other words you experience soul embodiment with a grounded high feeling.
