A new kind of Rave comes to LA this Sunday, May 20. Sanctuary in the City (SITC) and Ecstatic Dance LA (EDLA) unite to present an immersion in drug and substance-free self-expression in Westwood at Liberal Arts Lodge, 2244 Westwood Blvd.
Doors to the event open at 3:15pm and the event ends at 7pm. Participants will enjoy a safe and inspiring space to dance with a nightclub vibe. Connect within and with a sacred community through this internationally celebrated ecstatic dance form. Time Out calls this movement “the most intoxicatedly sober party in town.”
Innovative DJ Pascal de Lacaze-Duthiers from Berlin, Germany will provide enlivening sounds, energetic rhythms and transcendental dance music with live percussion. Join him in a live dance journey in partnership with gifted musician Jen Rose. She brings classically trained vocal and instrumental sound healing in a transformative environment for love, healing, peace and joy.
Parashakti Sigalit, Co-Founder and Spiritual Director of Sanctuary in the City, will lead a yogic Dance of Liberation™, using movement therapy and deep process work based on shamanic traditions to aid individuals on their path to reaching emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual integration. EDLA Resident DJ Robin Parrish will provide the soundtrack for this spiritual dance of liberation.
Ecstatic Dance LA is more than just a dance party. Participants will find a chill-out zone and altar space, a Superfood café is on offer from Chef Mallori, and there is even a Healing Zone with massage and energy healings available from well-known healers such as Healing Touch with Atasiea.
Sanctuary in the City is an 8-week spiritually based evening addiction treatment program for working professionals. The curriculum is based on Parashakti’s 7 Foundations integrating dynamic experiences with master healers, process groups, psycho-education, individual psychotherapy, psychiatry, and one-on-one holistic healing for people who want to address their substance abuse issues and are seeking an alternative path.
Ecstatic Dance Los Angeles is a community welcoming everyone to come together, be themselves, connect on a deeper level and expand consciously. They cultivate a safe, inspiring and engaging atmosphere for sacred dancing and connecting with one’s hearts, bodies and spirits leaving all worries, stressors and problems at the door. They celebrate a substance-free and all ages’ community allowing for complete rejuvenation.
