WHAT’S ON THE MENU?…

ECSTATIC DANCE

Ecstatic DANCE is…

A freeform movement meditation in motion where:

dance expands
spirit activates
boundaries melt
boredom ceases
creativity breaks out
hope happens
beauty flows
communities collaborate
ritual is reinvented
harmony resonates.
The beat deepens
as an electronic tapestry
of world rhythms
weave us together
as individuals
within a greater unity.

The golden guidelines of Ecstatic Dance are:

No shoes. No alcohol. No chit chat on the dancefloor.
(Let that body do the talking.)
Respect yourself and others.
Dance however you want.

zorba_logo_00450_00250

Ultimately, Ecstatic Dance is a place where we can experience the magnificent magnitude of our aliveness. It’s a deep dive into natural high. It’s a space to explore full spectrum movement – from the subtle and sublime, to the wild, passionate and tribal.
It’s a state of total permission to be, allow and express ourselves authentically, with all that we are. You can be sophisticated, sexy or silly. You can be sad, happy, connecting or introverted. There’s no right way to dance.
A sacred green card of YES and unconditional acceptance…

zorba_logo_00450_00250

TANTRIC & TAOIST PRACTICES?

(So, what does that mean exactly…?)

 The word Tantra can be translated as “weaving” or “the Union of Opposites”.

Taoism mean living in harmony with the Tao – 道, literally “the Way” – or in other words, in a state of surrendered, relaxed action/non-action.

Tantra and Taoism are two ancient paths of awakening that don’t separate sexuality and enlightenment but embrace them as one.

It’s a lived experience and lovemaking of consciousness and energy, energetic transparency and intimacy with all of life.

Tantra means entering into the full spectrum of life experience, with the recognition of the inherent beauty and sacredness in everything.

Where traditional spirituality says:

“This is all an illusion”
“You need to renounce/reject the body”
And: “Desire is the root of all suffering”…

Tantra says…

“Even though what we call reality as well as what we call ‘death’ is illusory... and who we are in essence is beyond this world… let’s be lucid dreamers and enjoy every moment of this adventure.”
“Your body is sacred, your body is your temple, your body is a miracle.”
And:  “Desire is the orgasmic opening of life itself. And without attachment to outcome, desire is beautiful, expansive and simply exhilarating.”
zorba_logo_00450_00250
 In the Ecstatic Awakening Retreat you’ll be learning Tantric & Taoist practices to awaken life force energy in the body, as well as how to sublimate and circulate this energy through your energetic pathways, and with a partner.
(This can be your own partner, a friend or someone you’ve just met in the retreat. You can always choose how deep into an exercise you want to go, and your boundaries are respected at all times. Also see the FAQ down below for more details on boundaries.)
The techniques, experiences and practices you’ll discover act as gateways for awakening and will allow you to tap into deep pleasure, grounded awareness, and sublime states of orgasmic openness.
You’ll be guided into a rich experience in the moment – as well as receive potent tools and practices that you can bring with you for the rest of your life.

MASSAGE

Deep healing and sensual flow…

Giving and receiving massage lowers stress, floods your body with feel-good hormones, acts as a beauty boost, slows down aging, relaxes you deeply (and can even make you a better lover!)…

AWAKENING

Meditation and Embodiment of Consciousness…

zorba_logo_00450_00250

Who we truly are goes beyond the body and the limited mind.

We are infinite beings. Miracles of energy.

Consciousness projected through a human interface.

Through meditations and embodied experiences
we’ll tap into our limitlessness and our inherent freedom.
As extensions of source energy,
everything is possible.

Lasya Lada

Ecstatic Dance

Once upon a time, in a forest in Labrador, a child called Janelle believed that only people who started training at 4 years old and graduated with a fine arts degree were allowed to be “Real Dancers.”

Every day, she did things she mediocrely liked, and some things that she liked a bit more.
She studied Music, Linguistics and English then moved from St. Johns, NL to Edmonton, AB.

One day, being somewhat grown up, Janelle realized that the only thing keeping her from doing what she really loved – was herself.

Because of that, she became certified to teach Nia (a blend of dance, martial arts and healing arts) in 2007, completed massage school and started a therapeutic practice in 2009.

Because of that, she overcame a fear and birthed herself into an ecstatic dance DJ named lasya lada.

Finally, she chose to deepen her practice by training and certifying as an ecstatic dance facilitator under Astraea Starr in 2016.

Now, as a DJ, facilitator and DANCER, she focusses on the TRIBE, the EARTH, the FLOW, the HEART, the SEXY and the SACRED.

There is no such thing as strangers – only friends you haven’t met yet.

One of the biggest parts of the magic is the people you’ll meet there, as well as a deeper meeting with yourself and all or life.
Conscious likeminded people coming together for 7 days of connection, exploration and celebration…
There’s just no way to predict exactly what will happen… we can only trust that when we follow our inspiration and our resonance – then life has a way of bringing to us everything we’ve been longing for, and often even more than that.
This we know to be true…

The better it gets, the better it gets…

The more you follow your bliss, the more bliss there is to follow…

You really can’t go wrong with this. (And if you do, you’ll probably be too happy to notice anyway. ;)
We’re joyous, grateful and honored to dive in with you in the retreat.
Because life is simply too short to settle for less.
This adventure is too precious to go for just ‘either or’.
Life is now. Let’s do this.
With massive love and indescribable excitement,
Ronja Sebastian, Ryan D Brown, Jeff Kirdeikis, Kareem Raïhani, Stephen Kaminanda, Treavor Moontribe and Amani Friend/Desert Dwellers/Liquid Bloom, Janelle + The Ecstatic Awakening Team

Ready to dive in…?

GOT QUESTIONS?

“How the f*** do I know if this retreat is right for me?”

 Well, apart from following your heart/gut/intuition/excitement/spontaneous feeling of YES…

This is for you…

  • If you’re man or woman – single, in a relationship or anywhere in between.

  • If you love dance, massage, nature and practices that open you up to 100% aliveness.
  • If you enjoy connecting with other powerful co-creators of life.

  • If you’re excited about 2017 and this accelerated time of easy manifestation.
  • If you are wanting to step up your game and have more meaningful impact in your relationships, career and life on this planet.

  • If you prefer authentic connection over superficial game-playing (pretending is for beginners ;) .
  • If you want to learn how to connect deeper, faster and with more ease.

  • If you want to learn the art of creating effortless attraction, through relaxation rather than ‘trying’…
  • If you want to experience Breath & Energy Orgasms. (Yep, it’s possible not only possible, but easy.)

  • If you LOVE music (who doesn’t?) and feel as excited about the DJ lineup as we do…
  • …and want to have a deeper experience of their musical magic as a gateway into body, bliss and consciousness.

  • If you want to experience sublime states of natural high, currents of orgasm and embodied ecstasy in a way that’s both expansive/empowering and calm+grounded.

(And just to state the obvious: yes, you do need to be here.)


This is NOT for you…

  • … if you hate meditation, connection and sharing.
  • … if you tend to complain, blame circumstances or hold onto victimhood for longer than necessary.
  • … if you don’t enjoy dance, massage, connection and feeling vibrantly alive.
  • … if you don’t like chocolate (just kidding, you can still come, but you’ll be missing out on some serious deliciousness…)
Fine print:

Also please don’t sign up if you want to stay stuck in excuses and small-minded living. Once you take the red pill and uplevel into these kinds of experiences there’s no way to go back to a mediocre life. You have been warned. ;)

FAQ

So. You’ve read the invitation for the Ecstatic Awakening Retreat…

(or if you haven’t, then read the invitation first :) )

And now you have some questions that want answers.

Perhaps even fears and worries.

Down below you can see the most common questions and concerns that come up.

If yours aren’t answered below, please email Lisa Rene at [email protected]

How do I know if this is gonna be worth my time? / Will I learn something new? / Is it worth the money?

So how can we guarantee that you’ll feel thrilled with the experience?

We’ve estimated the likelihood of you being positively blown away by the experience to 99,999999%. Probably as close as we can get to a complete guarantee and still leave room for all possibilities.

Having said that, everyone is at different levels of readiness, so individual experiences will inevitably vary. (Hint: if you feel a deep longing in your heart for this, and you’ve come across our work for whatever reason, it’s probably a sign that you are ready.)

You know the saying that “when the student is ready the teacher will appear”.

We are usually intuitively guided to exactly what we need in any particular moment.

Browse through the rest of the FAQs, and above all: trust your gut feeling and intuitive YES.

What are the results?

Everyone is different.

It all depends on your openness and willingness to dive in.

In general however, these are the kind of experiences and results you can expect:

Deep connection with yourself, others and all of life.

Huge amounts of life energy and more enjoyment of being in your body.

Deepened intimacy (either with your current partner, or as a preparation for your next relationship).

Relationship skills. Awakened Energy flow (this can change your experience of life, sex and orgasm permanently).

Becoming more skilled in both giving and receiving touch.

Developing more trust for men/women – many experience healing of past hurts and traumas.

Being at ease and relaxed in all situations, even when you’re feeling nervous. Experiencing energy breath orgasms – buzzing all over.

(If this sounds totally boring and unnecessary to you, then don’t sign up.) If you feel the yes – welcome.

Will I have to to do things that I don’t feel like?

Nope. We never push anyone into overstepping their boundaries.

There is, however, a big difference between overstepping boundaries, and expanding beyond boundaries.

We will lovingly invite you into expanding your comfort zone.

Ultimately you are the highest authority in knowing whether you’re holding back out of fear – or simply taking a step back because that’s more serving to you in the moment. Most often, what shows up as resistance is actually an invitation into greater openness.

And just beyond that resistance is where all the fun, pleasure and ecstasy lies.

What kind of people come to these workshops?

That’s a good question. After all, everyone in the workshop or retreat plays a part in co-creating the experience.

The underlying question is usually: will there be a lot of sleazy guys (and girls) there? Or strange, or airy fairy, overly spiritual people?

The kind of men and women that show up in our retreats are generally fun, alive and aware people with a warm, loving heart.

Our participants are in high integrity – if not from the start, then very shortly after arrival (we have practices for that).

The age usually ranges from 25-45, but both younger and older are welcome in this space where age doesn’t really matter.

What if I can’t afford it?

Firstly, as valid of a question as that might seem, it really comes down to this question:

Are you confining yourself to a reality of limitations and lack – or do you live in a reality of abundance and possibilities?

Because whichever reality you choose will be the reality you experience.

So if you feel like you don’t have the money for the retreat then the journey of allowing for that money to come into your experience is such an important shift, which in and of itself is worth so much more for the rest of your time here on this planet, than merely being able to pay for this retreat.

To find out what the simplest and most important shift you can make to allow for a greater flow of abundance in your life, watch this video:

You’ll be surprised and possibly blown away by what happens when you open up for new possibilities and out-of-the-package possibilities.

There’s always a way, and you have so much love, genius, beauty and creativity within you.

Because what is life about, if not to dive in fully?…

Secondly, we have a limited number of spaces for the Karma Crew and Love Ripple Crew.

Love Ripple Crew – spread the love and get an extra $100 discount on top of the early bird.

Specifically, this means:

√ Sharing the event on your facebook, instagram, pinterest and/or twitter (or whatever social media is your thing).

√ Invite 100-500 friends to the facebook event.

√ If you’re a member of facebook groups related to yoga, meditation, tantra, ecstatic dance, awakening, authentic relating, massage, spirituality, conscious clubbing or similar – then this is also a perfect place to share the event link.

√ If you have an email list you’re also warmly welcome to share it with them. If you need any promotional material please contact us. You can also copy and paste info from this event page and the facebook event page.

Karma Crew – help out during the retreat and get an extra $100 discount on top of the early bird. (6 spaces available.)

Specifically this means:

Helping with lighting candles, creating a circle, setup of mattresses or yoga mats for our sessions, refill tissues, beautifying and similar.

As part of the Karma Crew you will be able to participate in everything. In general this means meeting 15 mins before the start of each session, to prep the space in any way that’s needed.

Together everything becomes a total piece of chocolate cake. :)

To make it super clear: if you join both Karma and Love Ripple this means €100+100 discount + early bird. So if you book with early bird price by May 26, that would come to €895-100-100-100=€595 + food & accommodation. (Join just one or the other, it comes to €695 + food & accommodation.)

Email Lisa Renee at [email protected] if you’d like to come as part of the Karma and/or Love Ripple Crew, and after receiving a YES from her that you’re in, subtract the discount and pay for your ticket.

I can’t come to this one! Will there be more?

Well YES! (And no.) Yes, there will be more Ecstatic Awakening Retreats. And no, this lineup is unique and will most likely never happen in quite this way again. Then again, all is possible, so who knows? :)

In other words: do everything you can to make it to this one.

And for the future… these are the ones we have planned:

29 November – 6 December 2017 on Big Island, Hawaii – with Shamans Dream, Kalya Scintilla, Desert Dwellers + more tbc…

March 2018 in Bali (lineup and exact dates tbc)
