Day 7 – Movement to be moved

Fly, Fly, Fast, Grow do not stop
Do not be afraid to see all
A masterful shape shifter adapts
to all circumstances and situations
with magic, speed and agility.

Today’s First: Ecstatic Dance at the 418 project perfoming arts center.

Ecstatic Dance is “a unique expression of global movement”.  The guidelines are as follows: Move how you want. Respect the space and the people in it. 

NO booze, shoes, talking, perfume. 

YES sacredness, playfulness, community

 

Video is solely audio to respect ‘no photography’ policy of the ED community.. it will give you a taste of the DJ’s style.  While this type of music is not what I’d typically be playing in my car, it sure provided the right beats to get into a trance like, transformative space.  Given the welcoming environment and smiles from the community, I found it easy to relax into experience and let my body be moved by the music.  90% of the songs had no lyrics and it was the beats allowed for a primal, movement meditation.

At the front of the room there was an altar with medicine cards we could go up and pick from, along with a book that knowledged us the meaning of the card we picked.  Dragonfly was the card that appeared in my hands and the symbolism was quite on par with my life story right now.. gotta love those winks from above.

DRAGONFLY = THE TRANSFORMER

Fly, Fly, Fast, Grow do not stop
Do not be afraid to see all
A masterful shape shifter adapts
to all circumstances and situations
with magic, speed and agility.
