Back by popular demand!

Bring in the Summer Solstice by joining us for an evening of Ecstatic Awakening Dance & Journey With Sound. This 2-hour event involves dancing like no one is watching, followed by a sound journey meditation (aka sound bath), ending with the sharing of treats such as bliss balls, fresh summer fruits and herbal teas.

It's going to be awesome! You have to experience it to understand just what an enjoyable experience it really is. Those who have been before already know, hence why we are back by popular demand.

You will need to bring a yoga mat or something to lie on and a light blanket or throw for the sound journey.

Doors open at 6:30 and close at 7pm.

*Summer Solstice - Celebration of the Solstice is a time for people to attune themselves with the natural world and all that comes with the seasons of nature and humanity. The Summer Solstice is a time for strength and vitality for action and movement and to reflect upon what needs renewal or change in our life.

It is also a time of love and growth, of cleansing and renewal, and of celebrating the fullness of life. It is a time to step gently into new ways for the coming year and raise our energy to regenerate abundance and manifest our dreams.

What can be done in the new year to make your life more fulfilling for yourself and others you care about? The Summer Solstice is an excellent time to set the wheels in motion in a powerful way, through choosing action. The celebration is also to encourage community spirit, friendship and an appreciation for our own homes and natural surroundings.

Linked to the various Solstice rituals is the desire to strengthen the sense of being part of nature and interconnected spiritually with others and the world as a whole. Many feel this is a key reason to participate in the festivities, often referred to as “the turning of the wheel of the year”.

The ritual of celebration inspires a conscious effort to allow all these things to resonate more thoroughly. The warmth of the sun fires our passions and heats up our hearts to the potential of the life-force that exists within us. This is the reason we tend to feel energetic and excited during summer.

Ecstatic Awakening Dance - is a free-flowing practice that incorporates movement, meditation and powerful breathing techniques that will take you deep into your inner self to observe and bring to presence to the energies (thoughts, feelings, sensations) that arise within you. There are no steps to follow, there is no right or wrong way to move. It is done with the eyes closed, so you can let go of any self-conscious feelings such as embarrassment or judgment, getting it right or looking good, you just move to the music and truly dance as if no one was watching.

Journey With Sound - includes ancient and sacred instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. Gongs, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Shamanic Drum and Shakers, Kalimba, Rainsticks and Ocean Drum; as well as Koshi Chimes and Freenote. The vibrations and frequencies produced by these sacred instruments synthesise everything into functional harmony.

Where there is harmony and holistic resonance, transformation on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels occurs. They work in synergy and deeply on the mental, emotional levels and spiritual levels. On a physical level the vibrational frequencies emitted releases tension, stimulates the relaxation response and physiological functioning, increasing our vital life force.

By cutting through the linear mind and clearing clutter from the subconscious mind it has the capacity to bring us to our neutral quietened mind state and into a state of equanimity, deep peace, a state of stillness that is wise and non-judgemental.

This is a powerful transformative and meditative process that allows our true radiant nature to shine through. Whatever awakens is accepted with an open heart.
