$20 - $25

***UPDATE LOCATION CHANGE TO 229 Niagara Street, Toronto, Ontario M6J 2L5 @ ACME WORKS!***


⚡The Ideal Changes (TIC)⚡ & 💗The Big Love💗 Ecstatic Dance Party are combining forces to raise the Collective Vibration and empower Conscious Community

The momentum is building. Can you feel it?

It’s a jam packed social evening, full of music, food, dance, meditation, amazing speakers, and activities. Come and experience an event designed to build connection, community and consciousness!

We’ll kick things off sharp and smooth with the truly awesome musical performance by local band Beige Shelter, an ambitious and eclectic four piece band from Toronto that aims to bring hearts, soul, fire and passion together through they only way they know how….their love for music! Influenced by bands such as The National, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Damien Rice, Interpol as well as traditional Indian music, Beige Shelter strives to emote strength, resilience, love and kindness in all.

The evening continues merging meditation with our inspiring ⚡-=The Ideal Changes (TIC) Talks=-⚡, along with other activities and performances to raise the vibration for socializing and discussion. TIC TALKS are sort of like TED talks but a bit different. We’ll have two people from the community have the opportunity to give a 10-minute talk about any topic they like that’s inspiring, interesting, informative or all of the above. As long as it has something to do with creating positive change or making the world a better place, you’ll experience it here.

We’ll then move into The Big Love Ecstatic Dance. Here’s what to expect!

💗-=The Big Love=-💗 is an ecstatic dance experience like no other, co-created and guided by conscious visionaries Darren Austin Hall and Jesse Buck. The Big Love integrates a diversity of elements, woven together in a mandala of majestic inspiration that leaves revellers feeling naturally high, transformed and empowered. The Big Love begins by drawing people together in an opening circle where a short presentation of the evening’s intentions are shared. We then move into a Cacao Ceremony where participants drink of this sacred, raw chocolate elixir which infuses a euphoric state with all natural ingredients. Intentions are ritualized and a shamanic invocation is shared. As we enter the dance, Darren (DJ Druid) plays a set of his renowned mighty music selection as Jesse and he guide participants through an elemental map of movement and vocal cathartic release to ignite ecstatic states. The guidance supports those new to ecstatic dance as well as emboldens those savvy to the ecstatic scene with playful exercises ranging from contact dance, guided meditation, vocal releases and more to enthuse an immensely high vibration in the space that offers substantial energetic transformation. Jesse kicks it off with his genius movement skills with a unique, playful warm-up to centre ourselves and open our hearts. We move through WATER-EARTH-FIRE-SPACE/ETHER with the music inspiring a honing to the wild, natural cycles of the world, peaking in the bombast of FIRE where ‘shaking medicine’ is encouraged, before landing in the celestial devotional rhythms of SPACE/ETHER where we aim the ecstasy of our dance to higher purpose and selfhood, connecting with ‘the big love’—the field of universal love that the cosmos essentially is. We then ground everyone onto to the floor to bathe them all in an epic closing Crystal Singing Bowl Soundbath with over 20 Crystal Bowls. We close with a final collective circle and ritual free-chant as we share the boons of our ecstatic healing vibrationally to the wider world.
