Firm Feet's "Dance in the Dark" with Charlie Boyd
"A meditative disco for introverts."
"Euphoric and uplifting. Perfect antidote to the winter blues."
"A really great experience, completely relieved my symptoms of anxiety and I feel some inner peace I have not felt for 30 years."
MOVE & MEDITATE
It’s actually quite light at the Psychedlic Society this time of year so you’re invited to close your eyes or use a blindfold if you wish. In darkness, there is no visual stimulation, which allows us to drop deeper into meditation, get out of your mind and into the body. A chance to go inwards and connect deeply with yourself. Dancing can boost your overall happiness, release serotonin and endorphins, balance the mind and body and is a great form of low impact cardiovascular exercise.
Arrive in a warm, lowly-lit, atmospheric and calming environment. There is nothing to learn or follow, it is simply a space to dance. Nobody is watching you. You will be guided into a gentle warm up, breath work and awareness of the body. Then you will be free to drop deep inside and dance. Connect with yourself, be wild and free. After moving we will experience the stillness of our bodies with some soothing sounds and singing bowls. You're welcome to stay and connect with our community for herbal tea and treats.
Dance to deep electronic, experimental, uplifting drumming and ambient music from all over the globe. People often come away feeling reformed, with a deeper conscious connection with nature, self and others. Experience a sense of liberation, purpose and self empowerment.
No experience needed. This is a movement meditation. No alcohol permitted.
Doors Open: 8pm
No Entry After: 8.15pm
Please arrive promptly, make sure you bring clothes to move in and a water bottle.
Please note that we do not offer refunds or exchanges. You are, however, welcome to sell your ticket(s).
