Call of the Heart
Through the portals of movement, breath and seed sound, we gain tools to feel the support of the earth underneath us more deeply . When our roots are strong, our hearts feel safe to open more deeply and we experience an ecstasy within which can be compared to ‘internal flight.’ Through Sufi- inspired breath and movement practice’, we reach a state of consciousness for which there is no time and no destination . We become empty, feel complete surrender in the body and open to divine love.
Alchemy of Ecstasy
Through the portals of breath, movement, and sound, we explore the sensation of Ecstasy . Where are the physical and psychological roots of this powerful sensation and how can we allow it to penetrate us? How do we cultivate the art of everyday Ecstasy and how do we alchemize routine everyday activities into profound experiences of Ecstasy ? How to find that inner place where experience of pain and pleasure, sweet and bitter, joy and sadness all become entryway points to an enhanced state of this human experience? We explore various manifestations of ecstasy in the body and beyond. Through the heart, pelvis, voice and 5 senses we open the channels of ecstasy within. 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, humanity and divine love.
