Friday, March 29 Pause, Reflect and Connect | 6:30-7:30PM Prana Dance | 7:30-8:30PM with Kristin Hicks and Joy Chen
Join us for a soulful evening of community and movement. With this evening's events, we hope that you can safely open space to celebrate all that makes you, YOU!
Prana Dance is an artistic way to express our true selves through movement in connection with music. At the heart of Prana Dance is prana, the Sanskrit word for life force or vital principle. Participants experience the five elements - earth, fire, water, air and ether, moving their body in ways that feel present, connected, honest and unscripted. The expression of our true self through dance is an essential part of our natural being and vital to our growth and wellness. Prana Dance safety opens space for you to safely step outside of your comfort zone. To learn more, read Kristin Hick's blog post here.
An hour prior to Prana Dance, we invite you to an optional hour of personal reflection, small group connecting and large group dialogue. Joy Chen will hold space for each of us to pause, reflect and connect. We are all looking for a space where we feel safe to express who we are and witness the light in others doing the same. Before we express ourselves through movement in Prana Dance, we will have an opportunity to pause, reflect and connect. We will honor this sense of community over light snacks and tea.
Kristin created Prana Dance following a transformative experience at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. Her hope for participants is that they feel free to show up as their authentic selves, and truly let go of their inhibitions. There is no right or wrong way to move.
