After a beautiful event in March we are back. Dive with us into the deep waters of conscious ecstatic dance to open our hearts and access the wisdom of the body in a moving meditation.
** BOOK EARLY AND SAVE £5 **
With the intention to encourage unity and connection in ourselves and the outside world, we flow together with compassion and acceptance of the beautiful and tragic human condition to create a huge offering of soul food through our body prayer.
Our movements open and heal our hearts and give us the courage and possibility to fully be ourselves without apology, on an open floor space that allows our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” or beauty of the dance.
Our hall is dimly lit and laced in connection and authenticity, without specific observers or verbal conversation. Suggestions and invitations are given through a microphone by the facilitator in a space that is held enough to feel safe and yet open enough to encourage creative freedom of expression.
There is much evidence to suggest that creative, spontaneous movement and dance supports a happy, healthy and fulfilled life. Join us to return back home fully to the body again.

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 loving 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)
