    Event description


    Are you hearing the call?

    From somewhere far, far away, or very deep inside..

    Ceri and Elle invite you to an evening of Temple work.

    Your body being the temple, the work being your willingness to take yourself on a journey...

    This is an alternative to the standard Saturday night, joining others who are also on a quest for new experiences, traversing the inner landscape.


    We will begin with gentle breath work to synchronise our hearts and regulate our nervous systems with the power of group intention.

    We will then imbibe Blue Lotus Tea, settling into a sound journey, allowing this sacred plant to guide us deep into our bodies, and centres of awakening.

    Blindfolded, we will pass through the portal of resonant sound and emerge into a cosmos of music to move to.

    Enshrouded in darkness, with blindfolds on (optional), letting the pure and organic impulses of our bodies spiral, shake and stomp into an experience of our own transformation and vitality. Experiencing the power of dance and energy in motion

    Completely our own doing, yet our individual efforts and intentions are amplified in this group setting.

    After a short break, we will settle into a final sound journey to crystallise, integrate and emerge from the Temple, to join our fellow journeyers.

    We intend to create an environment where your senses will be altered

    What is Somatic Dance 🐉

    A free-form guided journey into the Depths of your Body. Gather & Reclaim the Joy, Healing and Freedom of dancing without judgement.

    “Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” Rumi

    What is Blue Lotus Tea:

    The Blue Lotus, also known as the Sacred Egyptian Lotus (nymphaea caerulea), holds a revered position across various ancient cultures, including Egypt, Greece, and Tibet. Its beauty and fragrance symbolise tranquility, while symbolically representing creation, rebirth, death, and the eternal presence of the sun—a representation of life's cycles.

    Blue Lotus is widely recognised for its calming influence inducing a sense of peace, euphoria, and heightened awareness.
