Dance into the wholeness
with Ecstatic Dance Budapest
Conscious • Barefoot • Freedom • Dance • Gatherings
Ecstatic Dance Budapest is part of the emerging global ED community promoting free-form sacred and conscious transformational dance events to cultivate authenticity, vitality, inspiration, passion, freedom and outrageous joy!
The concept of ED was born in Hawaii and California in 2000, and has grown extensively over the past 18 years, touching thousands of hearts and bodies all around the world from San Francisco to New York, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Goa and Bali.
It’s a unique dance experience, provides sacred, safe, inclusive and open space for people from all walks of life to explore freedom of mind, body and spirit through self-expression in movement within an accepting creative community.
Alcohol and drug-free, chatter-free, critique-free, and shoe-free events are integrate platforms of sacred rituals in a modern-day setting.
By dancing we take our attention away from the continuous mental noise to a place where we are deeply rooted in our being and connect with an intelligence that is far greater than our mind. We become aware of the aliveness of our body, we create “friendship” between our body, mind and spirit.
We arrive to wholeness, home into ourself.
Each ED starts and ends with a ceremony in which we make time and space to connect with ourselves, the others, the space, the vibrations, our intentions and the larger ED tribe.
1. Move however you wish
2. No talking on the dance floor
3. Respect yourself and one another
4. Drug & Alcohol Free Space
