Conscious Dance Facilitation
Conscious Dance is an umbrella term for various contemporary movement modalities and freeform dance styles that place higher emphasis on somatic experience, mindfulness, consciousness exploration, and movement as a way to play, commune, exercise, and express oneself freely, as opposed to performing dance techniques aimed at producing aesthetic satisfaction.
One of the world’s most widely recognized forms of conscious dance is called “Ecstatic Dance” - an all ages, drug and alcohol free, conscious dance celebration with live DJs, light facilitation, and a dance like nobody’s watching ethos.
Ecstatic Dance LA is one of the world's premier conscious dance organizations, and it provides dance and health and wellness experiences in the form of community gatherings, public events, private events, trainings, and retreats.
Get involved with the Ecstatic Dance Community to learn how to move your body freely, get in touch with your physicality and health through freeform movement. Learn to love to dance whether you think you’re good at it or not, and connect with new friends and community around the love of music, song and the joy of celebrating life.

Atasiea is a certified Dancing Freedom Facilitator.
He facilitates this conscious dance modality around the world, and has been featured on TBS’s reality series Lost Resort guiding the participants through Dancing Freedom journeys for the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as teaching dancing freedom at multiple international festivals, and retreats:
Dancing Freedom is a somatic, shamanic, freeform dance ceremony that enables practitioners to utilize movement as a form of embodied meditation and prayer. It’s fun, easy, elegant, and empowering. It heals. It reveals. It welcomes us home. Any person of any age, size, color or creed can do it.
In the Dancing Freedom process we journey with a facilitator through a playlist, live music, or DJ set curated to invoke the Five Elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether, while using Ecstatic Dance and ceremony to cultivate communion with ourselves, others, and the SOURCE of all that is. Dancing Freedom is a Practice of Liberation where the freedom, already known by the Spirit, is revealed to our bodies and our psyche one moment, one act, one breath, one dance, at a time.
