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 about getting it right or looking good, you just move to the music and truly dance as if no one was watching. It’s about listening to your body and your heart and embracing whatever is.

Ecstatic Awakening Dance has its roots in the techniques of Osho and was developed by Amoda who wrote “Dance your Prayers – A Guide to the experience of Ecstatic Trance Dance”.  

The gong is an ancient and sacred instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. It is the oldest synthesiser in the world, synthesising everything into functional harmony. Where there is harmony and holistic resonance, transformation on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels occurs.

On a physical level the vibrational frequencies emitted from the gong releases tension, stimulates physiological functioning and increases prana, chi, mauri, our vital life force.

The gong works deeply on the mental, emotional levels and spiritual levels. 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 where innate wisdom can be accessed and the authentic-self revealed.

Within the name of the gong lies the sacred seed ong. Ong is creative consciousness manifested. When you listen deeply to the gong, the sound ‘ong’ reverberates and penetrates our physical and subtle bodies, helping to raise our vibration and consciousness.

No water is involved in a Gong bath, you remain fully clothed and are simply bathing in the sound and frequencies produced.

Join us for a Beltane Ecstatic Awakening Dance and Gong Bath. Beltane is an ancient Spring festival that honours Life. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active. All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception. Beltane is a time for bringing hopes, dreams and aspirations to life. As the powers of light and new life dance and move through all creation, set the intention to bring your hopes, dreams and aspirations to life.

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.

Bring a mat or something to lie on and a blanket for the gong bath.
