About the event
Ecstatica is a coming together, to come as you are and feel into the unique expression of your body's artistry through dance, play & joyful celebration. You will be taken on an a journey through the elements and within each phase tapping into beautiful energetic pulses & waves that emanate from the beat of the music and into your heart.
Ecstatica's sacred mission is to ignite the power you can cultivate within you to reach beautiful states of ecstasy & taps into your ability to get high on your own supply. The inspiration comes from our beloved MotherNature, who reflects to us how to use the elements to create unlimited abundance & ecstasy from within.
This is a safe place for all to join & connect with a high vibrational community.
Through dance, you will alchemize your light & your shadow, your sacred & your wild. You will shake off the masks of the false self, go within, release tension, emotions, thoughts, and memories, uplift, awake playfulness, and meet other conscious Souls.
Ecstatic dance is a free form of dance, you dance and move any way you want in a consent-based, judgment-free environment.

JOURNEY THROUGH ELEMENTAL MEDICINE
EARTH: Soft & slow moving. Ground in , connect with your physical body, find your rhythm, plant your seeds of intention. Begin to sprout from the depths of density , blossom and awaken to the first beat.
AIR : Begin to take flight. Unroot yourself and soar. Allow the wind to take you into mystery, playfulness, possibility, sensuality, grace. Become weightless on your feet and spread your wings. Trust in the unseen vibrations that pulse within your heart and put trust back into the feeling of your intuitive movements. Tempo increased inviting you to dance deeper into your authentic truth.
FIRE: Let it all go. Fan your sacred flame. Ignite your wildest desires. Dance with the blazing embers. Feel the heat rise from your root and into your crown - exploding ecstasy. Burn away the false masks, surrender into transcendence, welcome deep transformation. Get lost in your unique fiery glow. Move through the inferno of bliss. Tempo is exciting, quick, exhilarating.
WATER: Rehydrate your soul. Dive deep into the nourishment of your crystalline nectar. Swim freely into the rivers of self-love. Feel the ease of your joints move through the waves of sound. This is the time where we soften into the emotional ebbs & flow to bring clarity and allow your unique expression ripple through the oceans of time.
ETHER: Space. Peace. Serenity. Stillness. Float into heaven on Earth while you sink into the vibration of soft sounds, subtle ambient melodies. Within the stillness... within the pause, space is found for profound integration. Comeback to the origin point of your existence. That first breath. The point of origin. Where nothing is require of you here. Just be.
