“Each of us is a moving centre, a space of divine mystery. And though we spend most of our time on the surface in the daily details of ordinary existence, most of us hunger to connect to this space within, to break through to ecstatic states of consciousness, to be swept away.” -Gabrielle Roth
A FUN, SAFE & CREATIVE SPACE
The Ecstatic Dance Temple is for everyone who wants to explore creative movement in a fun, safe and sacred space.
Our aim is to honour movement and dance as an essential and powerful expression of Self. The healing and creative nature of movement is acknowledged; and that joy and playfulness are vital to our events.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to these movement meditation practices, or that you are a experienced dancer. Everyone is welcome.
With a choice of live music and DJed events, the Ecstatic Dance Temple will fan the innermost flames of your awakened Heart!
The Ecstatic Dance Temple is the invitation to find your creativity & freedom through movement.
We create ecstatic dance & movement events that encourage you to move your body and express yourself, Body Heart & Soul! Our events are guided by qualified instructors who will guide you into a free-form ecstatic dance space.
A space to step into your unknown, and to let your creativity break out…
With a choice of live music, dj events, workshops and trainings, the Ecstatic Dance Temple will awaken the dancer within!
We dance to free ourselves.
We dance to come home.
We dance to feel connection to each other.
To the pulse. To our joy and life force.
To allow our life to flow through us.
We dance because we know it is the medicine we need.
“Our bodies instinctively know what feels good or bad, right or wrong.
However, often our heads get in the way.
Ecstatic Dance is about finding our way through to what feels good.
How can we use dance to consciously transform towards finding joy, without denying our anger or sadness?
Ask yourself: what’s my body feeling in this moment?
Does it feel good moving this way, or that?
Does it feel nourishing to dance with another, or dance solo?
Where do I most feel connected with Self?
Let your body lead the way.” ~ Abigail Harris
“May we all dance together in celebration, each in our place, in our style, in our infinite grace and encourage, support, nurture and stand up for each other every step of the way.” – Gabrielle Roth
