"Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz."
Warm up: Wren LaFeet
Facilitator: Sarah Monette

During ecstatic dance, you are invited to dance your own dance. It is a safe space where you can pass through a meditative state, experiment with movement, express yourself or play. The exquisite music takes us on adventures.
▬ ★ GUIDELINES ★ ▬
1. Conversation outside the dance space
2. Judgement free, move however you wish
3. Respect yourself and one another
Connect with inquiry before assumption, give yourself permission to be present and free of digital distractions, enjoy a natural high, and co-create the experience with consideration. Any concerns at any point can be addressed with an available Space Holder. (listed at the entrance table)
