Melting into the SPRING: Equinox Friday Night Alchemy
Join our Beloved Community as we gather to celebrate the Spring Equinox, in Dance and in Stillness. After a breath-of-fresh-air warmup, we sit, walk and dance using the powerful simplicity of Open Floor’s Meditation Cycle. We listen to Nature’s call: letting ourselves feel the Darkness in the world, yet calling in the Light that balances it. With compassion, courage and hope, we move for All Beings!
We will continue our In-Person dancing while simultaneously Zooming with our global community.

These Open Floor Alchemy sessions bring together subtle yet powerful facilitation, structured and free-form movement set to a beautiful music, and sweet communion… topped off by gourmet chocolate! (Unfortunately, we can’t send that over Zoom, yet :)).
Open Floor is a conscious dance practice that invites our Wholeness into Community. As such, it engages mind-body awareness, emotional intelligence, relational attunement, and connection to Spirit. (Read more about it here: https://openfloor.org/our-practice/ or here: https://www.dancealchemy.org.)
Diversity Statement:
We hold pluralism to be inherently of value, and invite adults and youth (16 and over), of all races, ethnicities, physical abilities, spiritualities, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, all along the gender spectrum, to build community with us.
May all beings be joyful, well, and free!
