EDB combines the worlds of Ecstatic Dance, diverse dance music and sound system culture with prayer, mindfulness and ritual. 

Using the practice of Ecstatic Dance we create a held space for you to express, expand and experience rejuvenation through movement, dance and sound.

The experience is a modern day ritual where the communion of people, movement and sound serve as mediums for transformation, liberation and soul invigorating celebration.

Our community gatherings are sober and suitable for all ages, abilities and people.

Come as you are. Dance as you please. Be your uniqueness.

Mae Bird & shaOne | Live Folk & Medicine Music

Mae Bird is a singer, song-channeller and medicine musician. Using her unique, soulful voice and guitar playing she creates a deep, warm, womb-space of sound for listeners to bathe in and contemplate her heart-felt poetry. She is inspired by her connection to Mother Earth and her journey of healing through feeling emotions in all of their colours. Her songs echo the transformative times we are in and offer a way to live the truth in our hearts through embracing all that we are.

Hearth Song | Live Sound Bath

Join Mae Bird and shaOne on a unique quantum music healing journey…

Drawing on decades of experience as performing musicians and practice in the healing arts, they play a range of instruments from earthy vocals, soulful guitar, shamanic percussion and flute, to create immersive soundscapes that hold a space for unconditional love and transformation.

A duo of musical souls, they are inspired by a love for the spirit of music and creating healing vibrations as a way to relax, express the human heart and open to the sacred wisdom within.

You are invited, through both the ears and heart, to enter that sacred space within yourself, where you get to let go and experience your own spontaneous musical alchemy.

You’re the music, we’re the guides…
