An incubator for exploring deeper connection through co-created movement

Join us for monthly nights of movement education, dancing, and exceptional music in this nurturing connective space. While the common language shares the framework of traditional social dance, creative expression, authentic connection and play take precedence over form! We believe stronger communities form where life is celebrated in music and dance with one another and see dance as a language with the power to bridge interpersonal and cultural divisions.

Our intention is to provide:
*A welcoming, inclusive environment that feels safe and judgment-free
*A gateway into the partner dance world and creative expression
*A nexus for community and authentic connection

Each event includes an ALL LEVELS class that supports up-leveling dance connection and skills, and three hours of dancing, with occasional cutting-edge LIVE musical acts.

Dates:
May 26, 2018
June 16, 2018

Time:
Class: 9:00pm – 10:00pm (no partner or experience necessary)

 Group Acupuncture & Percussive Journey 

Join Ryan McLaughlin, L.Ac. and Benjammin Lee on the first Friday of each month reclaiming the relationship with your body while harmonizing with the season in a group healing circle.

Following the art and wisdom of Chinese Cosmology, we invite you to join us for an embodied exploration of individual organ networks from a Chinese Medicine perspective.  Receiving the information through acupuncture and percussive sound, each participant will have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with themselves- one organ at a time. There are 12 organ networks, which correlate with the 12 main acupuncture meridians that flow through each one of us. Each month a different organ will be featured, felt, and loved.

JUNE: SPLEEN

This first Touch of Sound on June 1st falls during the time governed by the Spleen/Pancreas, which is the Earth element from a 5-element perspective. From a cosmological and symbolic perspective, the Spleen tells us a story about vibration. Without a material (earthen) boundary, vibrations could not result in sound. What a perfect place to begin the Touch of Sound Journey!

Aligning yourself with these organs has the power to support your digestive and immune health. Guided meditations will further your embodied understanding and investigation of the Spleen/Pancreas through imagery. Acupuncture in this healing circle will provide opportunity to align with the here and now through using the associated acupuncture meridian, while also providing support to each individual’s constitution as determined through pulse diagnosis by Ryan McLaughlin, L.Ac. The room will be filled with the percussive sounds of Benjammin Lee, as he takes us on a journey with vibrations aligning with this organ.

A guided journey to
discover your own infinite wellspring

A shift is happening. Can you feel it? This whispered wisdom of awakening? This familiar call of something more…

There’s a stagnancy that comes from growing without growth. A boredom that comes from aging without aching for transformation. Just as the world is changing: we are also always changing. Adapting. Reworking our story to align with this greater, collective, story. Somewhere along the way, we forgot the art of weaving our own individual tale. We lost our genius of writing our own epic saga.

It’s time to reclaim your legend. Together we can reclaim our lives.

Let’s take a journey to the wild unknown… to find the place inside each of us that’s waiting to be set free. In this sacred session, we will empower our own unique pilgrimage to find the answers that we seek by weaving gentle yogic movement, breathwork, meditation, self-inquiry, and energy healing into our own holistic dance of body, mind, and soul.

Our Earth is a generous guide. In-order-to connect with this beautiful planet that feeds us life, we will tune into her organic rhythms and retune our own energetic pulse.

June: Earth/Water
July: Fire/Air
August: Ether.

Together, we will celebrate this human experience: remembering our bodies, reawakening our minds, and refilling the wellspring of our thirsting energetic souls.

Restorative Yoga & Sound Healing

with Marissa Leigh & Rebecca Macy

Wednesday, June 20 @ 11:00am - 12:30pm


Join us for a morning of unwinding, heart-centered practice and rejuvenating vibrational healing!

Becky will guide us through a gentle, restorative yoga practice focusing on self-compassion, self-care, and a deeper connection with our bodies while Marissa takes us on a soothing, energetic journey using seven crystal singing bowls to help ground and clear us as we move.

We will take time to rest in each pose to allow the healing vibrations of the crystal bowls to wash over us and support us in our movement practice. The sounds of the crystal bowls help to calm our minds and bring us more fully into our bodies. This creates space for our body, mind and heart to return to harmony.

We will finish with a lengthy savasana-sound bath to allow us to experience these healing sounds while fully relaxed in stillness.

We would love to have you join us for this nourishing, community class!

Beginners welcome, pre- and post-natal friendly!

 

Becky brings the healing powers of nature and trauma-informed yoga together in her private practice, The Art of Balance. Because it’s been so transformative in her own life, she’s passionate about making yoga an accessible, enjoyable, and healing experience for others, especially those who might not think yoga is for them. She’s experienced the transformative power of collective healing herself and is inspired to create compassionate spaces for people to come together to connect more fully with themselves, each other, and the world around them through yoga classes, wellness groups, retreats and more.

Marissa is a sound and energy healer with a deep passion for supporting others on their unique healing journeys. She works to provide people with with a restful and nourishing space to be fully present with whatever is alive in the moment for them. She provides gentle guidance for individuals to open fully to themselves to allow their bodies, minds and hearts to heal. This looks different for everyone but is in essence allowing ourselves to return fully to experiencing the joy of our true being exactly as it is.

Me / You / Us: The Mess and Magic of Relationship

with Jo Sandry

Saturday, July 14 @ 10:00am - 5:00pm

Sunday, July 15, 2018
10:00am – 5:00pm


A Radical Aliveness Workshop

Do you stay connected to yourself in conflict? How does your desire drive you? What keeps you silent and separate from others? What scares you? How do you relate to boundaries and agreements? Can you contact your needs and express them? What keeps you from telling your truth? What is your relationship to your own vulnerability and pleasure?

Using movement, dance, dynamic exercises and play, we’ll explore present day issues around connection and feel how history shows up in present ways of relating. You’ll have the opportunity to free up energy around hot spots in your history, probe patterns that no longer serve you, develop a more embodied sense of presence and expression, and take more responsibility for your own needs, desires and pleasure.

Queer, trans, poly, het, singles, and monogamous couples welcome!

Deep and embodied individual work balances dynamic group processing for a weekend of connection, excitement, and opening. Radical Aliveness is an experiential, dynamic and therapeutic group process that supports you to be curious about yourself and others, trust your impulses, follow your body’s instincts, open to the unknown, and surrender to the wisdom of the group.
