What does it mean to dance ecstatically? Come experience the escalations of ecstatic dance expression: allowing the the body to move in a way that commands the universe to listen. To listen to what? To listen to your inner you-niverse! To listen to your own unique ecstatic expression of what it means to be a human being! Let your freak flag fly! Or shelter yourself in the gentle cocoon of free flow dance of your own creation. Or sit on your cushion and allow the music to gently permeate your being and allow you to experience the feeling of being alive! This is what ecstatic dance means to me. What does it mean to you? Come to find out. :)
This is a sober event. Come and let your soul get drunk on music!
This event is open to all ages and to all walks of life! As the mantra says, „Om Mani Padme Hum,“ meaning, „We are all One.“ 👌
Ecstatic dance is a talk-free practice. We have conversations with our body language, eye contact, gestures, contact improv, and when soul meets soul. In partner dance, if you are ready to end the dance with your partner, simply acknowledge your partner with a Namaste: clasp your hands together in a prayer position at your heart. Namaste means „The light in me sees the light in you.“ It is both a greeting, an acknowledgement of gratitude, and a goodbye. These techniques and more will be discussed at the event. Ecstatic dance is a one-of-a-kind experience. Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
Limited parking is available at Gyan Yin Teahouse. Parking is also available along Harmon and 49th street, which is a short walk to the tea house (bring walking shoes, flashlight or phone light, and a buddy, if you prefer!). If you miss your turn into the tea house, simply take the very next right past the tea house (46th street). The last (unmarked) road before Airport is Harmon. This will lead you back to 49th.
