Description

Ecstatic Dance & Astrology Immersion


Join Mia E. Pem, founder of Austin's "Ecstatic Soul Sessions" and Shannon Gill-Jones, founder of Boulder's "Rhythm Sanctuary" for a 3 part ecstatic dance immersion into the deeper dimensions of your Soul.

The time we will gather each Saturday will move from:

-morning/afternoon for The Hero’s Journey Oct 7th: 10:00am-4:00pm (growing light)
-to midday for Deep Dive Nov 4th: 1:00-7:00pm (the most light)
-then late afternoon/evening for Dancing in the Dark Dec 2nd 4:00-10:00pm (the most dark)


COST:

$75 per day until October 1st midnight / $90 per day after October 1st midnight / $200 for all three days if purchased by October 1st midnight


As we experience the natural shift towards the longer nights we will utilize rhythm, ritual, and the body as a portal to our deep understanding of self and other. We will explore our relationship to light and dark...our power, our life force, and our capacity for transcendence.

Jupiter, the planet of expansion enters its year long sojourn into the powerful sign of Scorpio on Oct 10th. Scorpio, known as “The Dark Mother” archetype, rules over our Soul dimensions and the greatest of mysteries…life, death, sexuality, and the alchemical process of the transmutation of light and dark.

We have the opportunity during this passage to ascend into extraordinary levels of empowerment through consciously aligning with this once in 12 year cycle.

Our retreat will be held on 7 lush acres of Lotus Bend Sanctuary in SE Austin. We will enjoy the perfect balance of movement, stillness, sound, silence and ceremony.

“Both light and shadow are the dance of Love” - Rumi
