About the event
Ecstatic dance is a form of dance in which the dancers, sometimes without the need to follow specific steps, surrender themselves to the rhythm and move freely as the music takes them, leading to trance and a feeling of ecstasy.
We create a sacred and safe space for people to come together in community, release, and express themselves without the fear of judgement. We ask everyone to read and to honor these guidelines to help us keep things pure and clean.
Be PRESENT. (no phones/cameras) Be EMBODIED. (no talking) BE CLEAR. (no intoxicants) BE CONSENSUAL. (listen for a yes, respect a no) BE HERE. (no outside shoes) BE FREE. (no judgement, dance how you want)

Hawk Stillwind will lead us in an opening circle to start the evening Pranava will follow with some guided breathwork and simple steps to help you connect to your body and release your mind as we transfer into a beautiful evening of movement and dance with a music/set by PRANAVA.
Is a sadhaka, yoga siromani, vision quester, songwriter, and ethno-mixologist inspired by many cultures around the globe. He delivers a fun yet powerful spiritual experience through his music and sets. Pranava's sets are an eclectic mixture of sounds from soundscaping frequencies and healing vibrations, to mantra and medicine music, infused with African, Cuban, and Brazilian rhythms. His sets are influenced by the five rhythms of dance and he is an avid believer in the healing properties of dance. "Pranava is the primordial vibration of the universe aka "the cosmic sound. A name that was bestowed upon me by Hindu monks while traveling through India on a spiritual journey many years ago. Pranava is far beyond a single being or individual form it is omnipotent. A name and sound that unites us as we gather together singing and chanting the many names of the divine, celebrating life and dancing to the rhythm and beat of the indigenous cultures around the globe." Influences: Raio, Mose, Equanimous, Yemanjo, Murray Kyle, Xavier Rudd, Krishna Das....
Hawk is an artist and Sundancer as well as partial owner of Casa Manabliss. He has helped create this sacred space for us to host these events and is very important part of the Delray community.
