Inspired by a series of poems on connection to divine love by Sufi poets, Rumi, Hafiz, & Lala, this workshop is designed take you through the doorway of dizziness, to the land of childlike glee as you return to the simple act of spinning. Children are natural spinners. You, too, can use this simple and profound tool to spin your chakras, emptying excess energy, while replacing depleted energy.

Dancing with Rumi uses the structure of the SpiritDance™ ecstatic dance practice to introduce the eight doorways or portals to becoming an ecstatic dancer and poet.  These portals open the 8 chakras, and invite the embodiment of the quality each governs:  Grounded, Creative, empowered, heartful, truthful, visionary, conscious and energized.

Join Ellen for letting go of old baggage, spinning your chakras and returning to the playground of your childhood. Be prepared for ecstatic moments.

Best on an empty stomach, barefooted, in the grass.
