*** 8pm -9pm: “Ecstatic Flourishing”
with Anne-Tyler Harshbarger
The unseen force which blossoms flowers is the same force which dynamically propels your body, mind, and heart into your fullest expression. Combining elements of yoga, guided imagery, and improvisational tools, you’ll be guided to experiment with the effects of this divine mOMentum: physically with movement, mentally as it pertains to thoughts (vrittis), and spiritually as the creative impulse of intention. In these sacred practices learn how to release resistance, journey into your body, and let go into the divinely guided flow of life.
Anne-Tyler (aka A.T.) enjoyed a 16 year long career as a professional classical and contemporary dancer, performing on stages all over the world. Also an international dj, music and movement has been her lifelong passion. She is an E-RYT 500 yoga and meditation instructor and is devoted to creating a peaceful and harmonious world. Her deep compassion for others and the desire to be of service led her to the creation of Blossom Body Awareness, which offers one-on-one transformational coaching for flourishing in an embodied and purposeful life.

***9pm – 11pm: Ecstatic Dance Journey Dj Anne-Tyler
From sweaty megaclub dance floors to laid back lounges, gritty warehouse getdowns to formal corporate events, for the last 15 years DJ Anne-Tyler has established herself all over the U.S. and Europe as one of the most versatile and passionate Djs around. In Ibiza, Spain 2008, she became one of the first ever female resident Djs at Club Amnesia, voted “Best Global Club” that year. Anne-Tyler has played massive events for large companies such as Microsoft and Coca-Cola, been featured in numerous magazines, film and television, and played countless celebrity events, all while staying true to her underground raver roots.

As a former professional dancer and current ecstatic dance facilitator, she brings a celebratory vibe and positive message that allows for inspiration, exploration, and freedom on the dancefloor. You may have heard the track “Ethereal” she co-produced and sang in on both DTO and Kiyoshi’s albums. Her electronic sounds weave a diverse fusion of jazz-influenced melodies, atmospheric layers, funky vibes, world beats, soulful lyrics, sexy grooves, warm bubbly bass, and dimensional soundscapes. Get ready for a journey!

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines
1. Move however you wish
2. No talking on the dance floor
3. Respect yourself and one another
4. Ecstatic Dance is a Drug & Alcohol Free Space
5. Please also refrain from photos, video, and shoes & scents.
Many people dance in their own space, and others share their space with another.
To engage in a dance with someone, use sensitivity: Are they open to sharing their space with me? Mirror movements, offer a hand, brush by, make eye contact, and see & feel how they respond…
