About Dharma Dance
Dharma Dance is a movement entry into Life as Meditation. The practice bridges easily into life. It invites awareness of Body as it is, Emotion as it is, Heart as it is, Spirit, as it is. It invites us to know that Mind-Body-Heart is an integrated field of being-ness.

Dharma Dance invites skillful, co-creative, loving, non-attached relationship with the world around us and with the Beloved. As we move and as we are are still – sensing, feeling, and being with ourselves, with a partner, or with a group – we learn who we are, where and how we experience Center, where we check out, how we give, how we receive, and how to co-create without co-dependence. We learn humility and happiness and the non-separateness of human-ness and being-ness.

Join us for this explorative, energetic, and meditative evening. We look forward to seeing you there!

To volunteer, please call (831) 457-6535 or email

About Sacred Saturdays
Each Sacred Saturday is unique, drawing from various traditions such as Tantra, meditation, yoga, Buddhism, Sufism, Native American, dance, chant, and other paths to help us connect with ourselves and each other from a place of presence, awareness, and aliveness. Each monthly evening provides the opportunity to participate in a special Tantric Puja (sacred ritual) that may involve movement, music, breath practice, energy work, dance, chanting, active and still meditations, guided visualization, communication practices, and other ways to honor and celebrate our bodies, hearts, and spirit. Practices and rituals may be done alone, with a partner, or as part of the whole group. We strive to create an environment that is safe, respectful, and comfortable for those coming alone or as a couple, those coming for the first time, and those who want to build an ongoing community of people devoted to cultivating sacredness and joy in life.
