Ancient mystical traditions such as the Sufis created sacred movement rituals and practices to bring the participant into an ecstatic state. Somatic science is a sensory journey of being human, witnessing the mechanism of our aliveness and its relationship to our environment. We will focus and play with elements of the body, brain, movement, gravity, breath, emotion, voice, space and creativity. The ancient mystics called this practice trance, ecstasy or bliss where ultimate healing, recharging and understanding of the Self in physical and psychic levels occurs.
We activate the creative flow to express and unload any unprocessed emotions that has been stored. This has an extremely calming effect on our nervous system and it frees us from anxiety and depression. Therefore, we can relate to self & others authentically, creating a very fulfilling experience of intimacy and connection in a modern world that has lost its roots.
Somatic Science, recapitulates ontogeny via developmental body movements, bringing you in touch with your roots,, thereby enabling primal awareness beneath the neo-cortex. The potential trance states induced reflect the alpha-state entrainment of repetitive/ritual movements enabling one to bypass the traumas typically stored in the temporal lobes as evidenced by hypervigilance.
Please wear loose comfortable clothes, bring container of water/something to drink, and yoga mat, and open mind and heart to enter an ecstatic state of being. Bring your friends, partner(s), and loved ones! Tantric practitioners, ecstatic dance, yoga/breathwork, brain technology, and authentic relating communities– all welcome and resonate with our events!
Your Mystical Guide:Soma practices Mystic Healing Arts, incorporating movement, chi and sound. She was born and raised in Iran under the influence of Sufism and sacred movement rituals. An active athlete, dancer, and musician most of her life, she discovered Reiki and Yoga to heal her injuries. This led her to develop a magical formula for ecstatic, hypnotic healing experience integrating physical/spiritual realms. She is passionate about combining music, creativity, and emotional expression in her workshops.
Your Mystical Musician:Arula is a songwriter, sound sorceress, embodied-movement guide, & visionary healer. She views music & movement as sacred expressions of a universal language; a language that unites and empowers people from all backgrounds.
As a singer-songwriter, producer and dancer she values expression as a path to awakening; a gateway to exploring the different parts of ourselves, the light & the shadow, exploring duality as a path to unity. Her songs are inspired by our collective narrative as well as her own personal journey of connecting deeper to one’s truest self by dropping the false stories that we’ve been told; that by releasing our conditioning we step into a greater place of potential & activation, and this what is needed for healing ourselves, and our planet. As a lover of many varieties of music she interplays with genres, while difficult to categorize her music is often described as haunting, sultry, and sacred. Her voice a bridge to ethereal realms, unparalleled but reminiscent of Kate Bush, Florence Welch, & Deya Dova.
