RISE is a weekly ecstatic dance; a space where you can be in your body, be in your expression, and be in community. Each week, our experienced DJs take us on a journey to our hearts and give us the energy to expand the ways that we can move. The music of ecstatic dance combines electronic and world-music genres, mixing a variety of different emotions and tempos into the session. Each dance will begin with a 20 minute opening warm-up session (not mandatory to join) led by an experienced instructor in a related movement modality such as yoga, qigong, contact improv, capoeira, kung fu and more. The end of each session closes with a community circle - giving us the opportunity to acknowledge each other and the journey that we have been through. Sacred sound healing music and acoustic heart songs will close our container. What is Ecstatic Dance? Dance is a necessary human form of expression found in all cultures and its ancestors. Ecstatic dance is a practice where all movement is celebrated and there are no set routines, steps, or guidance. It is powerful to be in a space of pure expression; stepping onto the dance floor where others are feeling free allows us to loosen up and be comfortable in our body and personality. The music of ecstatic dance is performed by skilled DJs who combine electronic and world-music genres, mixing many different emotions and tempos into the session. Dancers explore new movements solo or while interacting with others, and often find ecstatic feelings of happiness from connection with their spirit, their emotions, and their community. This practice is not connected to any culture, religion, region, or ethnic background. It is a practice that unites us across all cultural boundaries. The music brings us together to witness how we are all beautiful in our uniqueness.

Kirtan, a devotional form of Bhakti, involves the melodious chanting of divine names, drawing us into a state of inner tranquility and love. This practice of mantra chanting invites us to dwell in the realm of the heart, grounding ourselves in our true essence. It beckons us to forge a connection, uncover truths, rediscover tranquility, and awaken to the divine presence within us. Ellen Arthur is a dedicated student of music and for over a decade has committed herself to using her voice in a way that brings people together. Ellen believes so deeply that music is medicine and can heal wounds of insecurity, not feeling like you belong, confusion, fear and doubt. What lies on the other side of that is truth, power, devotion, community and certainty. Chanting sacred and ancient mantras has helped Ellen develop a stable and loving relationship firstly with herself, and then toward others, as well as guided her back into the loving embrace of the Divine. Attributing this growth to the practice of kirtan, the practice of singing the names of God in a repetitive and hypnotic manner. Doing so with community is what continually inspires Ellen and allows her to continue to share this practice with enthusiasm and grace.
