🔥 About Ecstatic Dance
Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering that encourages freedom and expression through dance. Join us and experience a safe and inspiring space to dance without talking, alcohol consumption or the general nightclub vibe. This is about self-expression, freeing your body and mind, and connecting with yourself and those around you.
Ecstatic Dance empowers people from all walks of life to express themselves freely, regardless of shape, size or background. The liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance, while the fearlessness with which people move gives newcomers the courage to dance without inhibition.
🔥 About Cacao Ceremony
The cacao ceremony is one of the oldest holistic healing practices used by indigenous cultures of the Americas, most famously the Mayan culture. The purpose of this practice is to connect participants through the heart and rebalance the energies in the body to restore health on multiple levels.
Drinking cocoa does not cause hallucinations or some psychedelic “out of body” experience. Cocoa is an ancient superfood, with a high concentration of vitamins, magnesium and is a powerful antioxidant. It increases blood flow (oxygen and nutrients) to the brain, as well as causing the release of endorphins that improve our mood. It strengthens the immune system and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure.
Εnergetically creates a meditative state and gently touches the heart, guiding us on an inner journey deep into the emotional center of our body.
Through this beautiful connection, we will enter the musical and dancing journey!
✅ Bring with you:
@ Bottle of Water
@ A personal cup for the cacao (non plastic please)
@ Second T-shirt
@ Loose clothes for dance
See you on the Dance-floor

Following their journey and training in Guatemala, Maria along with her partner Nikos have been offering therapeutic Cacao Ceremonies inspired by the ancient wisdom of the Mayans. During their ceremonies Maria and Nikos play live music with mantras and medicine songs, accompanied by the guitar and other native American instruments. The beautifully healing vibrations of the music combined with the magical effects of Ceremonial Cacao create an experience that awakens all senses. It is a wonderful journey that focuses on opening up the heart space: our emotional center.
