Join our “Community of the Spirit” as we gather monthly for deep connection to Self, Other and Beyond. After a heart-opening warmup and a guided Meditation, we will journey together around a specific theme for that month.
These Friday Night Open Floor sessions are a perfect end to the work-week: subtle yet powerful facilitation, a blend of structured and free-form movement, a luscious soundscape, and the sweet communion of connection… topped off by Organic Chocolate and treats.
Open Floor is a conscious dance practice that invites our Wholeness into Community. As such, it engages mind-body awareness, emotional intelligence, relational attunement, and connection to Spirit.
Date/Time: Every Third Friday Night, 7-9:30PM
~Warm-Up and Stretching, with musical accompaniment, happens from 7:00-7:20 PM. Doors open at 6:55.
~A guided meditation follows, for 15-20 minutes; please enter quietly.
~Doors Close promptly at 7:45, as our Opening Circle commences and we set our Container.
~Dance session follows, until a little after 9PM, followed by a Closing Circle in Community.
**Bring a water bottle, dance shoes or your bare feet, layers of clothing, and an Open Mind/Heart.**
We hold diversity to be inherently of value, and invite adults and youth (18 and over), of all races, ethnicities, physical abilities, spiritualities, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, all along the gender spectrum, to build community with us. May all beings be joyful, well, and free.
