Smudge and Traditional Ceremony with Vivian Recollet, Turtle clan Wikwemikong First Nation, Knowledge Keeper and Helper
Invitation and Intention
FULL SUN is a creative space and time to express ourselves fully. This is a peak time for the earth and all living beings. Everything is brought into the light. We will dance to connect to our authentic selves, to connect with what wants to be let go, and release what longer serves us, thus making space for inspiration and creativity to flourish. We will dance to connect with those around us in the community of dancers brought together for this special moment, and we will celebrate the unique beauty that comes through each and every dance in all the varied colours and moods that make us human. In this sapce we can learn from having a direct experience of our diversity, our humanity. For this Summer Solstice and Father's day, for all that is sacred, all that is life, our celebration is dedicated to this endeavour.

"To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past... Sweat is an ancient universal form of self healing..." G.Roth
Come celebrate Earth Day by honouring the elements.
We are water and as we dance, we sweat and we connect to the earth, fire, water, air and ether that we each embody in our own unique way, in our own authentic dance. We will move to the live improvisational musical creations on the drums, didjeridu, hang drum and vocals of Olodio, Osman Okey and Zach Sukuweh. Soasis will guide the journey. So please join us and come sweat your prayers.

“Laughter, song, and dance create emotional and spiritual connection; they remind us of the one thing that truly matters when we are searching for comfort, celebration, inspiration, or healing: We are not alone.”
"5Rhythms is a dynamic movement practice—a practice of being in your body—that ignites creativity, connection, and community."
While a seemingly simple process, the 5Rhythms practice facilitates deep and unending explorations, moving the dancer beyond self-imposed limitations and isolation into new depths of creativity and connection.
The 5 Rhythms
Flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness -- Each rhythm is interpreted by individuals in a uniquely personal way, opening them to a new sense of freedom and possibility that is both surprising and healing, exhilarating as well as deeply restorative. It is, in essence, “exercise for the right brain.”
When we practice 5Rhythms, we learn to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. It reconnects us to cycles of birth & death and hooks us into humanity and the spirit of all living things.
Within the group context we create connection and community and hone our instincts and our intuitions. We are made up of all walks of life – every culture, religion, race, gender, age and sexual preference are welcome.
5Rhythms transcends dance. The movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay masks down, and dance till we disappear…Only to rediscover ourselves through it all.

What is Sacredplay?
Sacredplay is a way of cultivating and becoming an embodied loving presence.
Sacredplay is a way of experiencing life with curiosity, a willingness to learn and to improvize, and a continuous return to the practice of whatever helps us stay awake to the creative force from which all life is born.
Sacredplay is an invitation to be vigilant in our awareness of others, it's a reminder, to each of us, that each of us, is dealing with and healing the heartaches of our lives.
In Sacred, we remember the preciousness and precariousness of life, all that it takes and is given to make this moment happen, our many ancestors, their suffering and celebrations. The lessons learned and learning, as we walk, dance, run, fall, slip and even fall asleep on the path. Sacred is keeping in our minds and hearts the future generations depending on us to be wise and to be of service. Living with this awareness is a form of embodied activism.
Then in play, there's a joyousness a fervent determination to make good of our time, to keep it light even while challenged.
When we play, we are willing to explore and take risks. When we play we remember life needn't be laborious, that we are part of
the music, the magic and the medicine. Thus our lives become infused with gratitude.
The Point of the Dance is Embodiment
