All night I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling
with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times into something better.
–Mary Oliver

Do you notice sometimes, especially after some deep, connected, expressive dancing, how the darkness that surrounds us, so vast and dense, seems lit from within by a luminous glow?  

How buried at the heart of pain lies the portal to unexpected spaciousness of love?

Let’s claw ourselves out from the graves we’ve dug. Let’s lick the earth from our fingers. Let us look up and out and around. The world is big and wide and wild and wonderful and wicked, and our lives are murky, magnificent, malleable, and full of meaning.* 

Let's dance.

Let's move together to release the pressure that sucks the living daylight out of us and to reclaim our energy, sanity, aliveness... the unmistakable, adorable essence at the heart of each of us.

The floor is open to any body.

Nothing is expected of you.

Bring your pretty dances and your clumsy ones, your tears and growls and mindless laughter. Receive real contact, resource, excellent company, and a lot of room to be 'as is.'

Take a free ride to community, infinity, and open space.

*An invitation from Padraig O'Tuama

You inspire me and, yes, beautifully challenge me to show up the way I wish to in my life – which is with an open, authentic, honest and expressive heart.
