We provide a safe sacred uplifted space for the community that supports ecstatic dance, spontaneous creative expression, facilitates heartfelt connections and appreciation for a community ritual. We start with a mellow dancing warm up, followed by a guided meditation that grounds participants in their bodies and gets them moving, after which participants are invited to co-create a sand Mandala placed at a well lit location in the room while live instruments weave melodies for movement expression throughout the night. The flow of the event is facilitated and yet it allows a free flow and spaces for improvisation. Learn more on our Website
