This is a very special experience and opportunity to RECLAIM your wholeness, sovereignty and power. Return to an embodied state where you can listen to your body and intuition. Through a sharing circle, embodiment practice led by Ember Stirling, ecstatic dance and integration/grounding, we will journey through the parts of us that have been silenced. We will give VOICE and LIFE to those silenced and wounded parts. We are deserving of feeling full alive, held and empowered. There will also be a gallery of Ember's art.
Show up as you are! However you are, you are ENOUGH and WELCOMED.
This event is for ALL genders/sexes. However you identify, you are welcomed.
Some of the proceeds for each ticket will be donated to https://www.ywcawcmi.org/welcome/ to support survivors and prevent domestic and sexual violence.
Reserve a spot by sending $22 to Venmo or PayPal @lexamaxdi or paying cash at the door. No refunds.

Dance has been a soulful companion throughout my life. I first discovered ecstatic dance in the Red Woods of California in 2019 and became inspired to share this embodied, community driven and holistic practice. It has been a gift to host and co-create events in Lansing and Traverse City, Michigan, along with British Columbia, Canada. Ecstatic dance offers organic body movement, feeling waves of e-motions and connecting in a space that is supportive and liberating. Dance feels like home and sharing it is a calling and return to love.
