Ever wonder how vibrantly juicy life would feel if you spent one whole day of your week dancing on the beach with the people you love? Gabriel Francisco and Chelsea Didier have designed a day full of just that - profound play, authentic relating and soulful embodiment games, practices, and suggestions. Join us on October 12th at Ocean Beach and Fulton St.
Welcome to the first offering of our upcoming SaturPlay Series!
We’ll blast off into our bodies, in community, with an awakening Ecstatic Dance and finish the day together, playing in authentic relating and embodied partnership. For one price - for one day - come for two incredible experiences! Come with a decided partner or meet your perfect match in the am to join you later in the pm! You decide! How in the present moment will you allow yourself to be? How much will you surrender into trust and choose to believe? Or, just try something new with someone new? Life is only as exciting as you make it and we are about creating opportunities for you to choose your own adventure within the adventure!
About the upcoming SaturPlay series:
It is our mission to curate expansive embodiment experiences for a wide range of desires and needs. Focusing on freeing the mind and moving into connection with the body/self/soul, the Earth, and community. Coming back home to the basics, a sacred dojo of remembrance for who we truly are. The place we can safely practice consciously returning to our inherent, powerful presence. Offering humanity a consistently evolving, full spectrum, authentic movement education to the best of our ability. Meeting souls of different depths and specific interests, under the umbrella of all things embodiment and presence. This first SaturPlay is for us to get a sense of how many others wish to anchor into play at this heightened level of dedication to authentic embodiment and a joy filled existence. We know we are not alone. Come out, come out, wherever you are. Our brothers and sisters, who recognize that there is something more to all of this. There is more feeling somewhere. More connection to be experienced. This can’t be it. What am I missing? Who am I missing? Where is it? The answer is YOU. Your breath. Your presence. Your softness. Your dedication. Your spirit. We look forward to welcoming you home. In your soul, in the sand, together, we rise, we deepen, we remember, we come home.
The RealestReal Ecstatic Silent Disco
10:30am Arrival/11:11-1:11pm Dance
The RealestReal is just that. This ain’t your average Ecstatic Dance! Combining the power and nourishment of connection to self, nature, music and community, this is a deep dive into embodied remembrance. Allow yourself to be gently opened and lead by Chelsea Didier and DJ Gabriel Francisco as we stir and explore the deepest parts of ourselves. Together we will awaken and learn new ways to move with our most authentic truth. Curated music and a sacred container will soothingly lull you into integration. Together, we will rise, feel our feet in connection to Mother Nature and surrender into our humanity, our inherent unity, and oneness. Join us for the RealestReal movement experience of your life. We look forward to welcoming you home.
1:11-4:30 Replenishment break
Dance is Love
4:30pm Arrival/5:05-7:33pm Workshop
This workshop is a movement-life exploration for ALL people regardless of your movement/dance experience. Bring your lover, close friend, collaborator or even a first date to partner with for this magical movement event!
When we actually make the time to be present in our bodies, with ourselves, the earth on which we stand and each other, we find there is always room for great healing, deeper clarity and authentic expression of truth. Utilizing practices, games, and ideas fundamentally shift the way we can authentically express, find our alignment, learn to listen and trust our innate knowing and expand our awareness, which leads to our personal and collective freedom.
Dance is Love was created so we may have such a dojo to practice our authentic connection as we lean into fear together, harnessing a profound presence with self, community, and the universe as a whole. Gabriel and Chelsea are educators and activators who specialize in creating experiences that promote releasing the mind and moving into the body. Dance is Love is the practice of what truly brings us into present alignment; so we may learn to listen to the heart, the knowledge of the body, rather than consistently being overwhelmed by the stories of the mind. When this becomes a dedicated practice we find so much more playfulness, depth of connection, and meaning in life.
