Event description
Let's come together, dance wildly and ignite our inner fire!

About this Event

On the first or second Thursday of each month we come together and dance in a safe, inclusive and judgement free space. This is time for you to disconnect from your day and reconnect back to yourself. The dance experience offers something for everyone, whether you are looking to dance wildly, flow softly and quietly through the space or simply come to connect with like-minded people in your community. Each month Ember Ecstatic Dance will focus on a new theme. This theme will be shared ahead of time on Ember Ecstatic Dances’ Facebook and Instagram page prior to the dance.

Ember Ecstatic Dance fosters and supports you where you are at on your personal journey. Every part of your human experience is welcome and encouraged to be expressed. Feeling into and honouring our emotions and pain allows us to rise stronger and come out the other side feeling lighter. The dances provide you with a positive and nurturing environment to be with what is and be yourself. Please do not feel like you have to hide yourself. Come as you are; beautiful and unique.

Engaging in freeform movement heightens your body’s awareness and sensations. Your thinking mind becomes quiet, which allows you to let go of what you think you “should” look like and instead you can drop into your heart and body. In this place you are able to receive your innate wisdom, intuition and guidance. When you fully open your heart, free yourself from your mind and come into your body, you can connect to your soul and the divine. This is the place where magic happens.

Ember Ecstatic Dance will follow a certain schedule for each dance experience. The dance opens 30 minutes prior to the opening circle for you to become aquainted with the space and engage in any self stretches. You will then be lead through an opening meditation, cacao offering and a 1.5 hour ecstatic dance. The evening closes with a closing meditation and a closing circle. Please feel free to stay afterwards and chat.

Cacao elixirs will be provided prior to the opening meditation. Cacao is a plant substance that is known as “The Food of the Gods.” It is an extremely nutrient dense super food packed with minerals and neurochemicals that beneficially affect our state of mind. Cacao does not contain any artificial sugar or sweeteners, which provides optimal nutrition. Cacao is used in a way to open your heart, energize your spirit for your dance and connect you to your higher self. Cacao has the ability to be a part of your healing journey, path of self-discovery and bring more energy into your life.

Benefits of Cacao:

40 Times the Antioxidants as Blueberries

Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron

Positive Impacts of Cacao on Mood- Cacao is a Natural Antidepressant

Lots of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain

Healthy Gut and Digestion

Improves Memory and Cognition
