🌟 Join us on the 4th of November for a special edition of Ecstatic Dance Cluj-Napoca, facilitated by our special guest, Scott Binder, DJ and Ecstatic Dance organizer with a rich experience and a unique story!
β€œI no longer create music to reach some level of so-called success, I create music because it is my medicine. My hope is that perhaps the music that is coming through me can help others feel good, too. Because at the end of the day we are here to help each other through this crazy and dynamic experience we call life.”

  • Scott Binder.

🌟 Ecstatic dance is a CONSCIOUS FREE-FORM DANCE, a COMMUNITY gathering where you can return to your body and EXPRESS yourself through MOVEMENT, in a non-verbal social environment.

🌟 Scott Binder is a high-tech-healer that combines shamanic drum journeying with organic electronic music and live percussion: woven together to create a sonic journey that stimulates clarity and release through dance and movement.
"Although I have been on a spiritual path since the early 2000s, studying various modalities of shamanism, meditation, and psychology, it was not until I was diagnosed with a life-threatening health challenge in 2015 that inspired me to let go of rigid behaviours.
Finally listening to my body and leaving the music world I was in previously so I could embrace a reality where I am simply a conduit of sound journeying for others to create more flow in their lives."

🌟 The event will start with a short warm-up to stretch, to get familiar with the space and with other people. Then, we`ll flow into the Ecstatic Dance. For two hours, the DJ will guide us for a JOURNEY through genres, tempos and different cultural influences. You are invited to move as the MUSIC inspires you and as your body wishes in a safe and non-judgemental space.
This is an opportunity to exercise your body and mind, to process emotions, to EXPLORE and to PLAY, dancing alone or with other people or just sitting. We close with a session of relaxation music to integrate insights and connections into our beings.

🌟 Ecstatic Dancing reveals the possibilities, advantages and challenges of dancing, bringing AWARENESS not just to the activity itself, but also to our COMMITMENT and INTENTION towards this activity.
