Welcome to the Temple Open House Ritual and Dance: a place of new beginnings, a magical land of celebration and joy! We open our beautiful home for an enchanted spring soiree in nature, including seed ritual, bonfire drum jam, ecstatic dance and more! We are thrilled to celebrate a new chapter together!

Note: This is an outdoor event if weather permits. Please bring any outdoor plants or flowers for the Ritual.
Suggested donation $20/ food and dance, cash preferred

Earth Day inspired "Seed Ritual" is not only a moment of connecting with Mother Nature and beautifying the Temple garden; but it also takes you on a journey through the cycles of creation and manifestation. Two stages of Incubation/Planting seeds and Resolution/ Purging and Planting will provide grounding for your spirit and clarity for the mind.

Afterwards, we invite you to join us for Sunset Salutations & Bonfire Drum Jam! Delicious vegan hors d'oeuvres and mocktails from our talented chefs will nurture and refresh you inside out. Bring any musical instruments, let the sound of drums set your spirit free!

And finally, we DANCE!!! With our feet in the ground, with open hearts “we dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.” Albert Einstein.
Free expression of movement, barefoot, non verbal and non judgmental, ecstatic dance is humble and bold, graceful and powerful. Join us for the celebration of your Soul, let's Dance!

May Mother Earth heal and rejuvenate us with it's spring laughter; and may the power of love and celebration remind us once again of who we are...

Namaste.
