Mindful Meltdown Ecstatic Dance
Sunnyside Community House - 3520 SE Yamhill St., Portland, Oregon 97214
Much of our reality moves in circles. We live on a circular planet tethered to an orbiting moon. We ourselves travel around the Sun in an elliptical circle.
In ecstatic dance, moving in a circular fashion — spinning around to have a fuller sense of what’s going on around you — is encouraged and informative. For safety, for awareness, for a greater sense of witnessing those around you, and for trying-on ways of moving through space that differ from a normal, straight-ahead trajectory. The invitation this week is to dance in a more roundabout way, attending to the circular space you inhabit on all sides.
With radial awareness, you become aware of what gets pulled into your orbit — what you’re drawing into your spin. Together let's become more deliberate satellites to the larger moving body of our planet.
