ECSTATICA is a weekend retreat designed for you to connect with yourself through dancing, moving, community vibes, singing, exploring the forest and sharing good food.
All of it hosted in the gorgeous retreat center ’t Zonnehuis!
What is ecstatic dance?
Ecstatic dance is celebrating life!
We dance, shout, and let it all out!
All ecstatic dance sessions start with a mindful intro to connect with your body and let go of restrictions & judgements.
Following the guide lines:
We stop talking and start moving guided by a DJ on different rhythms, vibes and colours of music.
For 2 hours we dance, flow, grove, move bear feet and allow our body to express itself freely.
Movement, noise, shouting, clapping, crawling or stillness.
All is welcomed.
As we create this intimate & safe container of self expression it is important to respect and be sensible to people around you .
You''ll experience the group"s energy moving organically in different shapes & rhythms.
In this process you can experience a diversity of emotions from ecstatic joy, to stress release, uneasiness or a state of trance.
At the end of the dance session you can feel very inspired, full of energy, blissed out or very quiet & serene.
Whatever comes up just welcome it and connect to yourself, to your nature.

This weekend represents celebrating life!
We celebrate life in a conscious way. We are awake, seeing everything happening and putting it into motion. How beautiful is it then to wake up the next day and feel that you have experienced and been able to embody so much?
This weekend is all about ecstatic dance paired with workshops that will bring you a little more inward. Through these workshops you will find the ecstatic sessions will bring a deeper experience. We will move, take our time, eat, connect with ourselves and each other and go wild!
The common thread during this weekend will be the opposite energies called Ying&Yang. We respect these energies and understand that after each Yang, energetic expressive movement, we must seek the Ying , inner gentle movement. This creates a self-nurturing state where you are able to take all the experiences. In this way we sink deeper and deeper into that state where we can learn beautiful lessons from ourselves and each other. All while celebrating life!

I had a marvellous experience at the retreat. The pace was just right with enough time to rest in between activities. It would be even better to have a longer retreat or 3 full days of immersion. Looking forward to joining in the next time!
