Ecstatic Dance with
Brett Morris
This dance is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation. It develops a direct body-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers. It’s about being present with your own energy and discovering your own dance within using this movement and energetic experience to release stuck patterns in your body, emotions, mind and spirit.

Anyone can dance in this space. You do not need to be a dancer or even know how to dance at all. This is a personal experience in a safe space with others who are also experiencing their own dance.

Dance Rules-
1. Move however you wish
2. No talking on the dance floor
3. Respect yourself and one another
Ecstatic Dance is a Drug & Alcohol Free Space
