Saturday 9:00-10:45aM Soul-Shake
Sunday 11:15AM-1PM Sacred Resonance
Soul-Shake: Shaking Medicine, Cacao Ceremony & Ecstatic Dance. In most indigenous cultures, ecstatic and ritual dance and shaking has been a form of essential healing and one of the most ancient medicines. When we shake and move the body for a prolonged period, surrendering to the intuitive movements of the body's spontaneous expression, we bring flow to energy that is blocked, open ourselves to multi-dimensional experiences and natural euphoria. This is when dance truly becomes a technology of transformation! During our experience, we'll begin by drinking elixirs of Cacao (raw chocolate), a sacred medicine of the Mesoamerica that opens our heart to big love. Then, we'll go on a wild journey with ecstatic dance and shaking medicine to bombastic DJ'd music and skillful cues to connect deeply to ourselves and each other. Vocal catharsis is encouraged as well to help release trauma and shift us into amplified states. We will then close with a grounding crystal bowl soundbath and collective chant to share our liberated love with the world!
