We're back!!! And excited to bring you the latest edition of our Ecstatic Dance event!
At the dead end of a road, in the heart of Fairmount Park with the sound of the woods as our backdrop, As evening falls and summer begins YOU and everyone else who feels the call will get together to dance as medicine. We will gather at 6pm for a guided yoga warm up taught by LaVina D'Anjolell
of Dhyana Yoga
. Feeling thoroughly loose, we’ll turn up the music and get down for 90 minute of Ecstatic dance with the amazing bass, beats and sounds of DJ SYLO
. We all loved his offering from his first appearance with us and we’re bringing him back!!! If you want to check out what he played before and all his other great selections, click here: https://soundcloud.com/djsylomixes/sylo-ecstatic-dance-medicine-mix
. We’ll dance and dance and dance some more. There will be blankets and cushions set out for resting, water cooler for hydrating and bathrooms if you need inside the hostel building. As evening falls and the sun sets at 8:29pm we will rest and take a sound bathing experience with the melodic guitar sounds of Jeff Deppa
. This sound relaxation is a chance for you to integrate the healing movements and dance. When we arise it will be dusk and we’ll have a short closing circle and invite everyone to eat some freshly prepared fruits of the summer as we say goodbye.
