Welcome to Embodydance—Dancing your Journey from the Inside out

For more than 14 years, Embodydance has created community through gathering together in Ecstatic Dance—considered a sacred practice by many of our members. Every Thursday from 6:30–8:30pm and every Sunday from 3–5pm at the Railyard Performance Center in the heart of Santa Fe, Embodydance provides an opportunity to drop into profound connection with self, community, the world; with Source. We encourage you to come dance and move in freedom. Find out what it holds for you by experiencing the dance for yourself.

Discover the rich possibilities within and without…

We honor the path to ecstasy Gabrielle Roth mapped out, but we are not a 5Rhythms® dance community. To find out more about how we are different, read the “What We Are & Aren’t” page. Come dance with us!

  9. Send a quick email to Tia (tiakimberly@hotmail.com) to let her know who you received a donation from, so she can add it to the master list. Or, if you were turned down, let her know that, too, so we don’t approach them to donate again.

HeartThread Workshops

Live As One
At the next Second Sunday Holistic Fair at Blessings in the De Vargas Center, Sunday 8th March, from 1 pm–5 pm, Raphael Weisman will be offering HeartThread sessions by donation.
There will be a team of readers, psychics and healers from which to have sessions. Note that Daylight Savings time begins that day!HeartThread is a process of releasing patterns of trauma and conditioning stored in the body by connecting through the field of the heart and accessing messages from the body. When these “memories” are accessed, they can then be lovingly released. The Angels also bring in a beautiful, relaxing and healing energy like a column of light, which allows a sense of peace and balance and often clears away pain and tension from areas of the body/mind.

Raphael will be conducting his next HeartThread Workshop at a private home on Sunday March 15th from 6 pm–8:30 pm.
Address: 509 Camino Lejo

$15 donation


Call Raphael Weisman at (575) 770 1228 for info and directions

Here is a testimonial from a recent participant in two workshops:
“With Raphael’s guidance I found heart-threading deeply empowering. I was brought into a beautifully peaceful space and feel much more connected to all life since my first session.
The process gave me clarity and a new found understanding of myself for which I am eternally grateful!

MOSI in Santa Fe

Grounding In The Body

MOSI (pronounced moh-zee) is an acronym for Mindfulness Oriented Somatic Inquiry, which is a mindful somatics practice community in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We practice body-oriented mindfulness meditation in the five “modes” of Stillness, Movement, Listening, Voice and Touch. To learn more about MOSI, check out our website at mindfulsomatics.org.

Discount Dance Cards

As most of you know, recently the price of our dance went up from $10 to $12, to cover rising costs. But you can buy 8 dances for $80 instead of $96 (a $16 savings…sweet!) by pre-buying a discount dance card right here, online safe & secure, using any credit or debit/ATM card with a Visa or Mastercard logo. The transaction will be processed in real time and you will receive a confirming email. Print that and bring it with you to your next dance and collect your card.
