MESSAGES FROM THE COLLECTIVE
Introducing the DT Collective - Over the next few months, we'll take the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you! Starting with...
A dance activator, temple keeper, community builder and sound weaver, Lila loves to provide spaces for inspiration, connection and remembrance. As a Kundalini Dance Facilitator, Ecstatic Dance Facilitator/DJ, Breath Wave Facilitator and Sonic Alchemist she loves to uplift, inspire and hold space for transformation through deep journeys of breath, sound and movement. In her classes, she brings a nurturing and playful spirit to engage and inspire others to connect with their own joy, passion and authentic selves. She weaves in ceremony into all her offerings as her devotion to the divine and desire to create safe and sacred spaces for self-healing and presence. Lila is based on Salt Spring Island though spends multiple months each year travelling and sharing dance journeys both locally and globally. She feels blessed every dayto be able to share this path of ecstatic embodiment that has had such a transformational impact on her life.
The Spring Deep Dive
On March 29th-31st we had an amazing and full weekend of moving, dancing, exploring, sharing, and playing together at Beaver Point Hall. It was a beautiful group of dancers that came together of all ages, all kinds of backgrounds, and from many different communities around Vancouver Island as well as Vancouver. It was deeply nourishing to have the time and space to drop into dance and embodiment and to feel the container of Dance Temple expanding in this way. We will be offering the next instalment of the Deep Dive September 28th, 29th, 30th, 2019. Stay tuned!
We are still on the lookout for a playmate for the children! Please contact us if you or someone you know would love to supervise children on Thursday nights so they can be free to roam in and out of the dance space, and their parents can be free to get their dance on! This is a paid position.
Carpooling is a great option for getting to Dance Temple!! Meet at Embe Bakery at 6:40 pm to either give or get a ride! You can also check out the Dance Temple Carpool group and post for linkups.
Reminder of Intoxicant-Free Space
Dance Temple is a safe and sacred space that is intoxicant-free. If you are partaking in any substances before you come to dance, please do so discreetly and be aware of any scent that you may bring with you into the dance space. When we dance we are in a heightened state of sensitivity and we can strongly affect one another.

“She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language. And birds fluttered around her, writing “yes” in the sky.”
