Wild Earth Dance

A dance floor for you to journey into a deep connection with yourself and experience the liberation and ecstatic relief of full body integration and presence through conscious movement.


Our space is dimly lit with a supportive creative community of bodies being facilitated into moving meditation through gentle encouragement of moment by moment awareness, with compassion and acceptance of the beautiful and tragic human condition, personal and collective.  Dance melts and heals our hearts and gives us the courage and possibility to fully be ourselves without apology.


Our gathering is at the gateway to the Spring Equinox when the Sun moves into the constellation of Aries for new beginnings (coinciding with a full moon just to add to the heightened energy!). During our evening together we’ll take time to create a body prayer meditation for this celebrated time, to tune into our deepest calling so that our seedling energy and efforts for the year grow from a place of reflected congruence and heartsong.


Beginners and seasoned movers all welcome.

Join us and remember why dance has been an intrinsic part of our cultural community expression since time began.

The evening is facilitated by Maria Barnicoat who started holding regular conscious dance classes back in 2008 (‘bare foot ecstatic dance’ and later ‘soul movement’) after immersing in shamanic dance practices that supported and deepened her personal growth and spiritual journey. Influenced strongly by 5Rhythms, Movement Medicine, Soul Motion, Buddhism, Nature and Mysticism with a passion for conserving our planet, staying grateful and overthrowing the patriarchy,
“We dance to shed skins, tear off masks, crack molds, and experience the breakdown – the shattering of borders between body, heart and mind. “ – Gabrielle Roth (founder of the 5Rhythms)
