About The Event
This is a very exciting co-creative experience that we are grateful to share with the community!!! We are curating a beautifully held, heart opening evening together. The intention for this creation is to drop into powerful expression and inspiration through deep presence, permission, and safe space. This is for those who are craving a dance space that is connected, co-creative, and liberating. With potent spagyric elixirs, carefully selected ceremonial cacao, world class music, and heart centered facilitation we are looking forward to a special blissful experience together.
Flow of the evening:
5pm Doors and Alchemical Elixir Lounge
Land and connect with people and the space. The Elixir Lounge will be open serving delicious herbal elixirs featuring mineral rich spagyric tinctures (one elixir included with each ticket). Please arrive with time to settle in before the opening circle at 6pm.
6pm Opening Circle and Cacao Ceremony w/Danny Balgooyen
7pm Dance Lab w/ Danny Balgooyen
Dance lab is a place where we get to be invited into more play, exploration, and attunement to our experience in the dance space. This can look like dance games, contact improvisation, connection games... really anything I feel inspired to do. My intention and compass for this lab is to set us up for a dropped in and deeply alive dance space so many of us are craving for!!!
8 - 10pm Ecstatic Dance w/ Liquid Bloom
Liquid Bloom was created by Amani Friend (of Desert Dwellers) in 2001 as a soundtrack for healing and the exploration of inner states. Blending the sounds of nature, world instrumentation, rhythmic chanting, and medicine songs, the music forged under the banner of Liquid Bloom was deeply ambient from the beginning and inspired by musical concepts rooted in the earth, meditation, and the power of sound to elucidate the trance-like states revered by so many of the world’s ancient lineages. Evolving over the years from its initial ambient roots, the Liquid Bloom discography as it exists today hits on many diverse styles of electronic and dance music, and the project occupies a unique facet of the electro-acoustic landscape in its intention and adaptability. Whether experienced on the dance floor, or paired with meditation, yoga, bodywork, or ceremony, Liquid Bloom grants the listener a spacious soundtrack in our quest for inspiration and creative insight.
10 - 11:15pm Sound Journey w/ Brian Dickinson
After the dance we will lay down in a comfy nest and Gong Master Brian Dickinson will intuitively guide a journey through sound with a variety of gongs, ancient bells, whistles, handpan, chimes, and more. As we are immersed in the cosmic ocean of sound; these vibrations massage each cell of our bodies, calm our nervous systems, and allow us to reach a blissful state of relaxation.
11:15 - 1am Open Connection Space and Alchemical Elixir Lounge
This is an open connection time to icebreak and form new connections, while deepening existing connections. There will be no facilitation or guide to this. There will be plenty of cuddle space, dance space and epic beings to connect with. We will play music to complement what the space is calling for. The Alchemical Elixir Lounge will be open again serving grounding, relaxing, and nurturing elixirs during this open connection time
Sacred Herbal Extracts will be setting up the Alchemical Elixir Lounge sharing delicious and potent herbal elixirs. Only the finest herbs, mushrooms, and ingredients are used in the alchemical preparations and offerings. A specially curated set of high frequency elixirs will be available to support our bodies and spirits before, during, and after the dance and sound journey
YAYYY for more events at the Chautauqua Castle!!!
