The challenge of our time is to open the heart, deepen the exploration of what this means, and, most importantly, share this experience with other people. By engaging the body we gain access to the domain of the heart. Creative movement both with and without the use of music has the ability to help us shed off layers of the ego and be truthful about what we are feeling in the moment. In this workshop, we will explore a variety of different exercises that integrate the use of our bodies to fuel true self-empowerment and authenticity with other people.
From the silence the ancient sound of drum will raise…. for a second
this sound will paralyze all other senses but leaves only the ability to
listen within me
And I start breathing deeply…feeling how this beat
resonates in my entire body and in my head….
filling up the space
around me with this vibration….
I keep listening and following the
I allow it to take over me….at that moment I notice how
my left foot is reaching out and is touching the Earth, kissing
very gently at first..then my right foot joins and taps the surface
Inhale….left, right…exhale..left, right…looking at
the fire…breathing together….stomping the dust underneath with our
Living out the rhythm…listening to the heartbeat of the Mother (Earth)….aligning our hearts with it…opening our hearts….Falling into trance… falling into dance….
We always did it, years and generations ago…as we do it now…..
We come together, we merge our hearts and we start dancing our Spirits…

We will push you to find your own way to move, to express, to hold and to let all of it go…to be FREE. To break open all the locks and bondages that tied us up for years in our bodies and in our heads…Together we’ll create a sacred space and feel it with our prayers, with our pure intentions to be true to ourselves….Then we will move, play, sweat, stretch, sing, scream, unwind, release, contact dance, improvise, laugh and transform.
And all of it with hand-made Rhythm and heart-made Laughter.
“Rhythm lies at the heart of play, and thus various rhythmic actions are the primordial forms of delight-bird songs, the chirping of crickets, the beating of hearts, the pulsation of laughter; the ecstatic loss of self in drumming and dancing.” Adam Latts
Halloween Party – Quotes
“Power-breathing priestesses spin chakras like pinwheels awakening mortals to open portals like the tantric kiss that turns foreheads into magnets sparking white-light orgasms in third-eyes bursting open to star fields as arms like down comforters warm shoulders on giggling friends singing reggae-imbued kirtan with tabla tapping to a tribal beat of naked hearts blooming in a sacred bubble inhaled by magicians with light in hands and light in eyes sending etheric music through holy thighs; the guise of sex un-masked as a tender touch of hair waters eyes and teen embraces elder saying, “I love you man. You’re just like me;” the self-care of holding back and letting go; the sweet song in ear that quickens the heart; the comfort of family flowing from hand to hand on the frequency of OM; the silky brush of hips as rainbow bodies swirl in a sea of ecstasy beyond time, beyond space, beyond borders, and beyond these words.” by Bob J
