Ecstatic Dance - Luminous Mystery happens every Saturday night. We follow are part of the Ecstatic Dance Community and adhere to the principles and ettiquette of that community. EDLuminous Mystery is radically inclusive and all bodies are welcome regardless of color, shape, size, abilities, gender, gender expression, sexual, relational, and/or affectional orientation. Everyone makes the dance.
What is Ecstatic Dance? It is free-form movement (aka dancing) that is danced to a musical journey that is artistically crafted and spiritually guided by talented DJs. Usually ecstatic dance starts with ambient, contemplative music that people usually stretch, do yoga, and/or meditate to. Usually the tempo will increase and the energy will begin to whirl. Some DJs will increase the tempo and energy incrementally with some waxing and waning of energy. Others will find an energy that is happening in the house and go with that. Everyone’s participation helps to create the journey. This is an alcohol-free event.
Each month we will be dancing for a cause. The Cause for Dancin' Program will select groups who are doing social justice work, advocacy, and assistance for trans* and gender-variant people and their allies. Please see the Cause for Dancin' page on our website.
On behalf of Rev. Lee Whittaker and Miss Ayme Kantz we look forward to seeing you at Luminous Mystery!
