Firm Feet's "Dance in the Dark" with Charlie Boyd
"A meditative disco for introverts.”
MOVE & MEDITATE
A Movement Meditation is a chance to go inwards and connect deeply with yourself enabling release and stagnation from the body and mind. Although we will start and finish as a group, these sessions are practiced in silence.
Arrive into the atmospheric lowly lit room, which will get darker as the night progresses. In darkness, there is little 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.
There is nothing to learn or follow, let your body, breath and the music be your guide. It is simply a space to dance and celebrate yourself and your body. You will be guided into a gentle warm up, breathing and awareness of the body. You are invited to close your eyes to aid you to let go a little further. Connect with yourself, be wild and free. After moving we will experience the stillness of our bodies with some soothing sounds from Charlie and a grounding meditation to send you off into the night, re-set and vitalised.
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 and a sober event. This event is intended for a sober audience. We kindly ask you respect this request and enjoy the uplifting psychedelic effects of movement. Arrive promptly, make sure you bring clothes to move in and a water bottle.
Doors Open: 7pm
No Entry After: 7.15pm
WHAT IS FIRM FEET?

Hi, I’m Charlie. I combine my deep love for music and movement in Firm Feet® Dance in the dark sessions. Facilitating in corporate, mental health and community venues including; Time to change campaign, The Psychedelic Society and Lifespace healing. I have a particular interest in using movement to stabilise everyday mental health. I trained in EAD™ movement method, Macrobiotic healing arts and Organic horticulture and worked in various community and environmental projects in London. I am training with the College of Sound healing for my Sound Healing with the Voice Practitioner diploma. I offer 1:1 self development and body awareness sessions and 1:1 Sound healing treatments. I co-produce and tutor Mindfulness through dance and Love your body; exploring body image at the NHS City & Hackney Recovery College. I co-founded the social prescribing initiative – WF Conscious Care Community, providing complementary activities for those in the community who need a boost.
I am a singer, producer and songwriter, I work on a few projects; acoustic lo-fi band called Hamartia (listen to us on Spotify if you like). I co-produce project The Inside – we write deep, meditative experimental music for deep listening experiences.
