Ecstatic Dance - EVERY FRIDAY EVENING @ The Temple of Happiness in Amsterdam!
- Friday, June 6th - Ecstatic Dance with DJ Shawnodese @ The Temple of Happiness!
Welcome @ The Temple of Happiness!
You will find our beautiful location in Amsterdam New-West (Slotervaart), which is pretty close to station Lelylaan (10 min. walk).
The Temple of Happiness is a safe and sacred space where we invite you to dive deep and fly high during a bare foot Ecstatic Dance.
We will welcome you wholeheartedly in a warm, cozy and artistic ambience where our dance tribe gathers every Friday evening of the week. We do so without talking, dance on our bare beet (socks and special dancing shoes are also welcome) and free of intoxicating substances (like alcohol or other drugs).
Our Ecstatic Dance editions will be guided by a special Ecstatic Dance DJ, who will guide you on an amazing adventure of sonic soundscapes, buzzing beats and basslines of all kinds of sorts and varieties. So, expect the unexpected, which is part of the beauty and magic of Ecstatic Dance.
Program on Fridays:
19:30 Doors Open.
20:00 Opening ceremony with a warming up, breath practice, focusing on intentions for the dance or whatever else comes through and feels appropriate.

About DJ Socrates
I specialize in blending different cultural & musical roots into adventurous soundscapes that make for a warm ambiance. Rather than highlighting the contrasts I link the similarities I can hear in the music. Cumbia, Reggae, Bhangra, Celtic Fusion, Organic Electronica, Afro Bass, Tribal Rave.. I find my tracks in many different genres, as long as there is soul in the music and it helps me to tell a story, I will use it’s color on my palette.
I hope you enjoy the sets as much as I enjoy mixing them and love to hear your feedback!
