Event description
Cacao + Ecstatic Dance

About this Event

Gather with community for an evening of cacao and ecstatic dance as a potent spiritual elixir for heart opening and liberation! Together we will co-create an atmosphere of radical acceptance and love for self and each other, where we can let go, release, and celebrate authentic expression. With cacao in our hearts, we let go of the word stranger, melt the illusion of separation, enter into the vibration of unity, and groove with the beats to dance our way into Oneness. Dance and let dance!

Cacao is a sacred plant medicine that awakens the wisdom of the heart. Get ready for your spirit to feel lighter, as it rejuvenates your mind-body connection and empowers you to remember the love that you are.

We open with circle to set intentions, flow into ceremony to sip cacao from the sacred valley of Peru, dance our hearts out, and close with a sharing circle, hugs, high fives, and smiles. Cacao will also be available for purchase.

Ecstatic dance doesn't require any experience whatsoever, and there’s no such thing as good or bad dancing! We welcome humans of all sizes, shapes, abilities, ages, genders, and walks of life to enjoy this experience. And while we encourage everyone to be their own guru, there are a few guidelines for ecstatic dance:

Noble quietness on the dance floor

No cell phones on the dance floor

No use of drugs or alcohol prior to the event or during

BIO:

Erica is a vibrant student of Love, dedicated to the work of the heart as a way to heal ourselves in order to heal our world. She is a spiritual nomad who travels the world sharing her light through conscious events and creative experiences designed to open hearts and liberate minds.

On a material level, her myriad of identities include; internationally traveling 500RYT, Yoga in Action facilitator, Embody Love Movement facilitator, Reiki Practitioner, Social Media Guru for Kula Collective, artist, and budding musician.

On an soul level, she is a bridge builder, heart healer, truth teller, self love activist, earth warrior, passionate peacemaker, and whimsical guiding light.

She first found Ecstatic Dance several years ago in Portland Oregon and it was love at first dance. There were over one hundred beautifully diverse bodies dancing, moving, and expressing together in one beautiful space. From grandmas in pearly sweaters to newborns strapped to their mommas wearing headphones, and so many other colors, shapes, size, and abilities, everyone was glowing with pure love and radical acceptance. She made it a regular practice for herself, attended dances everywhere she went, and embraced ecstatic dancing as a way to move out stagnant energy, let go, radically express herself, authentically connect to others, and rewild her bliss. This lead her to take an Ecstatic Dance Facilitator training with Samadhi of Ecstatic Dance Evolution to be able to start hosting her own dances. In the summer of 2017, Erica brought the first ever Ecstatic Dance to Wilmington at Terra Sol Sanctuary, founded the Wilmington Ecstatic Dance Tribe facebook group, and continues to be a pillar in the ecstatic dance community here when she is in town. It brings her heart so much joy to witness our dance community thrive and grow. Thank you for being a part of it.
