“When we let go of fears, judgements, self doubt, expectations, conditionings, pressures, worries and stress, and open our mind to being in free movement… stepping into the present moment… immersed in magnificent music and positive, uplifting energy… in playful harmony with life… in the flow on the wings of love… this is how it feels like…”

What is Aquatic Rebirthing (an introduction to Aquatic Healingwork & Watsu)?
In this session we’ll explore being floated weightless in warm water with the instructions and supervision of a trained Aquatic Therapist, with the intention of achieving profound levels of relaxation in the person receiving it. We’ll divide our group into couples where the receiver is continuously supported while being back-floated, rhythmically cradled, moved, stretched, and massaged.
This is a deeply nurturing, safe and healing modality which resembles our familiar and intimate experience of being held as an infant, floating weightless, in the total safety of our mother’s womb. The end result of this experience is the feeling of total liberation and Bliss.” You can learn more about Watsu and Aquatic Healingwork at www.watsumiami.com.————————————–
Why Ecstatic Dance?
I think it’s important to talk a bit about why we do Ecstatic Dance. On my personal spiritual path, in search for Truth and after seeking deep answers in western psychology, I discovered a few spiritual practices which truly allowed me to regain my own sense of Oneness, where the endless seeking, needing, missing and their associated misery just stops. Those disciplines for me have been Yoga, Tantra, Ecstatic Dance and Aquatic Healingwork (Watsu), which all boil down to Meditation.
How is it different from other regular dances? Our intention with Ecstatic Dance is on focusing our attention inwards instead of outwards, to truly witness our inner world, unvarnished, with it’s particular energies, emotions, sensualities, moving our attention away from our thoughts and desires into our inner energy field, feeling the energy that the music and interactions with others generate and move in our being and using that energy to tantricly raise our it up from our base root into our crown, creating an energetic fire which cleanses our inner being from blockages, restrictions, emotions, needs & desires and trepidations. We do Ecstatic Dance to become an empty bamboo, an energetic vessel of energy where just BLISS & LOVE is all that remains.
Hope you’ll be able to join us ~Alex
