WHAT TO BRING:
Please bring offerings for the altar (to take with you when you leave) and anything to burn in the fire (offerings to puja, purge, let go of). Wear layers for indoors and outdoors. The dance is done barefoot usually, in loose clothes and free! Dance wild, meditate alone, “observe” or dance with others.
WHAT IS “ECSTATIC DANCE”?
Ecstatic Dance is a style of movement that invites you to dance freely, openly, honestly – within your entire being – and in sacred ways with others. It is normally done with the whole group starting together, ending together and sharing, and staying for the entire dance. You are invited to sit in silence, run around like a wild banshee, shake and gyrate, dance alone or dance with others. It is always meant to be a sacred personal journey, taking you through a variety of sounds and rhythms, emotions and physical movements that YOU CREATE! Really, it is whatever you make it.
- Please no drugs or alcohol at the dance, so you can fully be “present” in your dance.
- Please be there for the dance AND ceremony. No “drop in’s” before or afterwards, to respect the beauty of this sacred event.
- Respect others’ personal space, inviting them to dance or “connect” with eye contact first, letting each person dance their own journey and their desire to dance with you, or to dance alone.
- Children welcome to participate in the beauty of the dance ceremony when parents guide them and involve them in the dance.
- “Ecstatic Dance” is usually done without talking, so let’s try to respect the body’s desire to really go deep within the dance.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
Heather Straube has been sharing these sacred dances of the Earth & the People since 2011, bringing in the prophecy of Native American Wisdom Teachings, shamanic ritual and free-form ecstatic dance. She danced with Vin Marti (protege of Gabriel Roth) during the growing Ecstatic Dance Movement in the Pacific Northwest (USA) of the 1990’s. Dance and ceremony literally saved her life. Later, she organically combined ecstatic dance with shamanic ceremony in the most flowing, powerful, loving way, holding almost 100 of these experiences for others, most at the community center she directed in Portland, OR. Heather feels blessed to share this with you and the beautiful land at Casarão da Lua!
SEE YOU AROUND THE FIRE OF DESIRE UNDER THE STARS & FULL MOON!
Please arrive by 21:00 to be a part of the full ceremony, beginning with your own Sunset Prayer overlooking the ocean…
