DOORS OPEN @ 7:45pm – Stretch / Gather / Connect
*** 8pm – 9pm – Free Yourself w/ Steffi Seefeld
Dancing with Steffi is a wild and free, open hearted experience tapping into primal energies that inform our bodies before the thoughts get in the way. We will discover parts of ourselves that we have always known but perhaps not expressed in such a passionate play in the dance floor space. During this movement class we will use blindfolded movement to step beyond our conscious fears and limitations to allow our innermost creative side to break free. Dancers tune in to sound and movement to take an inner journey exploring a trancelike state of self-discovery and self-realization by heightening our inner awareness in a safe and carefully monitored group setting.
Steffi was born with a heart wide open… Having grown up in the richly diverse, creative and edgy environment of Berlin, Germany, she lives her life full out and full speed, sharing her gift of unconditional love in service to every being she encounters, cherishing raw, authentic experience, effortlessly inspiring others with her natural joy and compassion.
As a sacred space holder, she leads and encourages individuals and intentional groups in private and business settings. She is skilled in evoking visually creative states and free expression through art, movement, touch and words.
Steffi is a Master Business Coach, trained in Systemic Coaching and Mediation as well as being trained as an Expressive Arts Therapist in Germany and California. Her work is inspired by Ecstatic Dance, Daria Halprin, founder of the Tamalpa Institute and her mentor and friend John Michael Wasmer.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines
1. Move however you wish
2. No talking on the dance floor
3. Respect yourself and one another
4. Ecstatic Dance is a Drug & Alcohol-Free Space
5. Please also refrain from photos, video, and shoes & scents.
Many people dance in their own space, and others share their space with another.
To engage in a dance with someone, use sensitivity: Are they open to sharing their space with me? Mirror movements, offer a hand, brush by, make eye contact, and see & feel how they respond…
