18th Annual Tribal Gathering for Conscious Dance

Please join us for the Conscious Dance event of the summer!

Conscious Dance inspires and invites us to open to, move with, express, and release all the many aspects and energies that make up our individual (and collective) humanity. It is a practice that welcomes the totality of who we are. That welcome is not just for the parts of ourselves that we are happy, accepting, and OK with. It is also for the bits that we push away and deny. Giving those parts even just a little bit of freedom to breathe and move leads to wholeness of being and liberates, for our use and enjoyment, vast amounts of energy that are otherwise locked down. All of Me is a celebration of the totality of who we truly are!

Each year we call together the greater dancing tribes from the four corners of the earth. Set right in the heart of summer, this workshop features five amazing movement teachers, representing 5Rhythms, Open Floor, Azul, and Soul Motion, each with a unique offering on this year’s shared theme. Our Gathering is composed of embodied dancers from around the world and a fabulous catered celebratory dinner together. Join new friends and old for a remarkable weekend of movement and discovery.
