Our Intentional Format
Arrival & Fellowship
(first 30 minutes)
Time to connect socially with fellow dancers, meet, greet, and catch up.
Intention Circle & Dance
(~8:15pm Wednesdays or ~10:30am on selected Sundays)
The Music Leader invites the dancers to connect in a group circle or with an activity. We often set a personal intention and share our names. For the duration of the dance, we agree to keep a focused, non-verbal space within the sanctuary so we can dance more deeply with our intentions. We encourage everyone to stay until the end. The Temple Keeper seals the sanctuary in support of our intentions, and asks any arriving after the Intention Circle to remain outside the sanctuary until the music ends.
(~9:45pm Wednesdays or ~11:50am selected Sundays)
The Music Leader invites the dancers to connect in a group circle to share in the “harvest” of the day’s dance. We encourage everyone to share with a compassionate heart, to focus on what we are grateful for, and to hold each other in the light. We ask that community announcements remain outside the sanctuary.
We donate 50% of our profits quarterly to disaster relief, community service, and global wellness projects.
