6 Week Women’s Ecstatic Dance Ritual & Circle
(closed group for full series, no drop-ins)
Our sacred container is the dance floor, it is both a mirror and an ecosystem.
A place where we can safely be a witness and be with our all of who we are.
A place where we can choose to lean into and move with our pain, our fears, our doubts, our love, our joy, our bliss.
A place where the abandoned, rejected, forgotten pieces of ourselves are accepted, welcome, and claimed back into the whole.
The dance floor also gives us an and open landscape of fertile ground to rest in, to play, to rediscover, and create a new reality through movement and intention.
There are 12 spots around the circle, We will meet together as a group for 6 weeks to facilitate going deeper and honouring the energies of the sisters that arrive to be part of this journey. The circle will close after our first week, no drop ins.
This series is for the Woman who wants to reclaim the wisdom and power innate to her body and spirituality
Especially if you have been:
Looking to deep dive into your spiritual path.
Feeling ready to show up authentically with all of who you are.
Have been craving an oasis where you can tune-in to your bodies inner wisdom, for guidance, direction and inspiration.
Seeking to participate in woman-centered rituals and acquire tools to gain a deeper connection to your spirituality and divine essence
Feel called to be in circle with like-minded women where you can feel accepted and supported as you are
Love to dance and want to use it as a tool for your spiritual growth
If you answered YES, Welcome to the Circle!!
We open our time together in circle, creating our collective altar. A poem or piece for contemplation will be shared, followed by some reflection questions to help guided us in setting our personal intentions. Liz will then gently guide us in a meditation/ embodiment practice, as we move into meeting ourselves through freestyle dance/ecstatic dance guided by a 75min dj’ed world music set. We will close our movement journey with a guided meditation, and take time for personal reflection/journaling, and sharing in a circle of loving sisterhood.

About the Dance
Liz will lead a DJ’ed dance (a fusion of Ecstatic Dance & DOWH non-facilitated and lightly facilitated practice) for deep connection and expansion and exploration. Ecstatic Dance is a a unique freestyle dance experience, guided by music. There are three simple basic guidelines to Ecstatic Dance. We dance barefoot. Silent Space. No drugs or alcohol. What is Dance Our Way Home (DOWH)? DOWH supports women to embrace and celebrate our Sacred Feminine, to be free from restraints, to be enamoured by our own breath and dance, and to fall head over heels in love with our self and with everything and everyone” – Erica Ross co-founder of DOWH

I attended Liz’s Fly Free women’s circle and ecstatic dance a few weeks ago on my birthday and it was the greatest gift I could give myself! To share in sacred space with sisterhood, support, intention, connection, and magic as we all pushed ourselves to spread our wings wide and fly free, was intimately divine to me! And the love, presence and pure sweetness that emanates from Liz Diaz makes her the perfect guide! – Shannon Glashan – Women’s Circle & Dance Ritual Participant
