Upcoming Workshops

Ecstatic Soul Sessions

London - 3 Mar 2018 to 8 Dec 2018
Nikki Ashley - Ajay Rajani

 What is it to dance deep into your soul? To meet ecstasy in your dance?To be danced?

The Ecstatic Soul Sessions are an invitation to explore these questions and other themes through the moving, breathing body, with a whole afternoon of moving, dancing and being in community. The 5Rhythms map is so versatile, the more we dance the more we feel the connection to our body and the less we feed the thinking mind. From the soles of our feet to our fingertips, we ask the body to guide us home. Sweat becomes our teacher and the dance our prayers.

Nikki Ashley & Ajay Rajani trained together and have danced for many years at St.Peters Church where Christian de Sousa holds a weekly drop in class “SweatyThursdays”, The magic carpet at St Peters has been a place of deep ecstatic enquiry and they have both mentored with Christian as well as each bringing awealth of unique experience and skill.



Oxford - 9 Mar 2018 to 11 Mar 2018
Adam Barley

Co-led with Jessica Howie

The inspiration for this workshop arises from our shared belief that it’s vital that we give our loving attention to the dance between men and women. That exploring the complex dynamics between Us is essential to our own personal healing, that of our communities, and that of our planet and all life on it. We have lived for thousands of years with the masculine and feminine being out of balance, which is being expressed in the deeply catastrophic and dysfunctional world we have created and are now living in.

This weekend is time together for Us to recognise some of our own projections and hurts, fears and longings towards one another, and bravely express ourselves in a safe and held space. We will dance together with the intention of taking conscious steps towards healing our wounds, taking responsibility for our part in the divide between Us, and discovering healthier ways of moving with one another.

This is not a workshop about relationships, though couples are welcome. It is an open space for dancers who are willing to take responsibility for their own place and and their own steps, to move through this wild and tender landscape between men and women.

We will be together on the Friday night, the Saturday we dance separately, and we will come back together on the Sunday.
