-What is Rhythm Sanctuary? How does it differ from ‘standard’ ecstatic dance?

“Where current culture meets ancient wisdom through the practice of conscious music and ecstatic dance.”

Rhythm Sanctuary is a “cosmic mass” of stellar proportions! A communal dance ritual journey that has been sculpted as a ‘next step’ of the Ecstatic Dance movement. Founded by Shannon Gill in 2005 in Boulder, CO, ‘RS’ emphasizes the ‘sacred altared space’ as the celestial vessel, where we alchemize our connection with the planets, stars, and cosmic forces. ‘RS’ catalyzes the body so that we may each better incorporate the ‘light’.

-What is “Sol Invictus”?
Sol Invictus was devised by Russell von Ohlhausen in 2013 as a monthly honoring of the current astrological Sun transit and those born under the sign. Sol Invictus, “The Unconquerable Sun” was originally a Roman epithet to the Sun as “light-bringer”. Practices generally regarded the solar cycle through the heavens, culminating in ritual and a single grand city festival.

Together we will co-create this life-affirming elixir through sound, light, movement and our connection to the senses. We will seduce your soul into a vibratory experience that connects us to prime source, activating our hearts, and cleansing and upgrading the energetic unified field.

Through the dance, bodies unfold & express in an act of cosmic reverence, inviting greater flow of conscious light, permeating the cells, so we each may become more activated star-seeds.

‘RS’ is more than just a dance. ‘Rhythm Sanctuary’ is a ceremony, a celebration, a ritual of consciousness and a progressive evolution of mind-body-spirit.

What is The Shift Foundation?- The Shift Foundation is a 501.C.3, non-profit organization, with the mission of raising awareness of the core spiritual reasons for the issues in our world and what we need to do to return to the reverence needed to reshape our future.
