Celebrating World Quaker Day 4/10/20 at 6-9 pm with Ecstatic Dance Quaker Worship

In Quaker’s silent Meeting for Worship we gather to just sit together in God’s presence and listen to the whispers of the Spirit in our hearts. Sometimes these whispers inspire us to minister to others, vocally or in some other form. God’s Spirit can speak to us in so many ways. It can be thoughts and words or it can be images, sensations, feelings, colours, sounds, movement… ❤ In Ecstatic Dance we surrender to our body and let it move us…The rational mind quiets down and gives way to the music and the dance that arises naturally.. so the Spirit can move us in this way, too! ❤ Let’s celebrate World Quaker Day the 4th of October at 6 pm EEST by this experiment to combine Silent Meeting for Worship with dance! We’ll meet at Zoom (the link to it you’ll find by opening the attached file) and gather for our Meeting for Worship in Silence for a short moment, then continue by dancing to a shared playlist for 1-1,5 h, then continue the Worship in the Silence again for a bit longer than in the beginning. You are welcome to share in any language, and anyone can help out by translating each other’s words into other languages, and when there’s no translation we can try to feel and listen to the Divine behind the message even if our brain doesn’t understand the words. IMPORTANT: The guidelines for Ecstatic dance, adapted to online setting: THE DANCE FLOOR IS A NON-VERBAL SPACE We join together to create a safe and sacred space for movement. Eliminating talking on the dance floor...
