      Gateway to Ecstatic Dance with ANKATI

      Somewhere in the bones of our bones, there is dance. Not choreography — there are no steps to learn, and there is definitely no way to do it wrong. This dance is the free expression of everything swirling within you, and Ecstatic Dance is the dance floor to set it all free. We dance our joy, our freedom, our longing, our wildness. We dance our sadness, our frustration, our anger, our pain. In Ecstatic Dance, community is built. Rituals are discovered. Self-judgements are released. Creativity is birthed. The body moves and breathes and sweats and stomps and twirls and pulses. And it is all welcome. The flow of the night: 7-7:30: Opening and Movement Warmup 7:30-9: DJ set by Ankati, free dance & high vibe elixirs by Amylyn SHILO MEMBERS get a 10% DISCOUNT There are four guidelines. Consent is the law of the land. Every dancer is welcome to their space; if you want to dance with, hug, or otherwise share contact with someone, get permission first. No talking on the dance floor; please speak in quiet voices in the Chill Space only, and let the music and movement guide the dance! No phones on the dance floor, including videos or photos of the dancers. Take this time to engage directly with the world and set your screen aside! This is a safe, substance-free dance space, and we hold a high value on clarity of presence: please do not arrive intoxicated or partake in substances other than our High Vibe Elixirs during the dance. We get naturally ecstatic on the movement, not on alcohol or drugs. Meet Ankati  Hey there- I'm Ankati. I believe... We are designed to orient towards embodying our fullest expression of aliveness. And this is the journey of remembering how. We often imagine that we are these disparate parts -- a human body that we walk around in, a mind that drives the whole equation, and a spirit/heart that gives us a deeper sense of purpose. But the body is the gateway. The home. The container. And a vessel for welcoming the pleasure of Totality. Remembering wholeness. Experiencing completely. Healing wounds, conquering fears, celebrating possibility. Embodiment is an invitation:: ||to live IN your body, not against it. pain is not a way of life- it is a gateway to new heights, showing you where you can use the tools of practice to elevate your wellbeing. ||to integrate your joys, your struggles, your play, your exercise, your meditation, your intelligence, all of it into a powerful and WHOLE human being. ||to access all that is available in this wild universe with pleasure, confidence, and clarity. To trust that the possibilities for your life are boundless if you allow yourself to expand into them.  I bring the tools of Yoga, dance, sound and energy healing, ceremonial space, and facilitation to guide seekers on this road.
