A 15 Minute Ecstatic Dance Meditation for Beginners

Sierra Vandervort // November 3, 2022

Welcome to your 15-minute ecstatic dance meditation for beginners!

I can’t seem to get out of my head. It’s the new philosophical plague of our generation. Our modern culture is digitally wired 24/7. Productivity and efficiency are our greatest character traits. And somehow, it’s still not enough for most people.

Many people report feeling drained, exhausted, and uninspired on a regular basis. And as a spiritual mentor, I see one common culprit that so many of us fall prey to. Disembodiment. Otherwise known as being “stuck in your head.” 

Today, we’re talking about the easiest and most-accessible antidote to being stuck in your head: physical embodiment. But this is more than just a workout. This is an intentional connection with the physical body through movement. Since our rationality is greatly influenced by our bodies, this is a powerful practice for mental well-being. For our embodiment practice today, I’ll be guiding you through an ecstatic dance meditation.

Learn how to let go of running thoughts and get out of your head. During this embodiment practice, I will teach you how to re-center and ground yourself. Through an ecstatic dance practicemeditation, and journaling, you’ll leave this practice feeling calm, spacious, and energized.

For my practice, I’m using my favorite sustainable yoga rug from Öko Living. These mats are ethically hand-loomed out of organic cotton and dyed with medicinal herbs. Plus, they come from a small women-owned business! If you’d like to grab your own yoga rug, use my code 10thelocalmystic to save $10 on your order.
