HEARTCORE ~ Sufi-inspired practices to arouse experiences of Divine Love and Ecstasy
We take a collective journey to open the channels of ecstasy in the body through breath, physical practice, voice, whirling, sema (listening) and zikhr (remembrance). We open and surrender our heart to the divine. We explore our spiritual hunger, and the original source of our longing to love and be loved. Once we enter that space, we find an inner place from which we would hope to never return. We transcend culture and time, on a journey of spiritual ecstasy, dance, heart-opening, and love.
Hunger for Ecstasy – Sufi-inspired practices for Women
Through kumbakha (breath suspension), physical practice, vocal invocation, movement meditation, sacred dance, whirling, taoist-tantric meditation, development of feminine anatomical awareness, sema (listening), and zikhr (remembrance), we take a collective journey to open the channels of ecstasy in the body. Locating the entranceways for strong physical and psychological sensation of ecstasy to penetrate us, we explore various manifestations of ecstasy in the body. Through these portals, we cultivate profound and subtle sensory awareness, entering the inner place where there is no time, and no destination.
