Community Workshops

We know the healing power of community firsthand.

It's often through group experiences that we learn the depths of compassion (for SELF and others) and we discover our core commonality.  We find support and encouragement in the mirror of others.

Come down to the round table at Porta Alchemica and join us for laughter, learning, and love! 

Ecstatic Dance at Kester Homestead

We are thrilled to be offering monthly ecstatic dances at the Kester Homestead - a gorgeous barn venue that typically hosts weddings run by the most lovely family from our Skaneateles community who own The Local Branch.

Eliza has brought her Dancing Freedom medicine to Buffalo, NY where she founded a weekly dance community in 2016 that is still thriving today.  Now it's time to land this powerful, fun, community healing modality in the Syracuse area!

Join us on the second Tuesday of each month this summer from 7 - 9 pm at the Kester Homestead for an evening of live DJed beats, movement, and explore the magic of your own body.

There are no steps and your cannot do it wrong.

NO dance experience necessary - this is about intuitive movement, embodiment, and activation.  You can move as much or as little as you want - simply being in this sacred space will shift your energy.
