Banner Ecstatic North

Welcome to Ecstatic North

At Ecstatic North we harness the essence of the cardinal direction of the North, known for its stillness, introspection, love, freedom and wisdom.

Our mission is to create sacred spaces that invite you to delve deep within yourself, connecting with the profound depths of your being.

In Groningen we organise monthly Ecstatic Dances, but there is more.
On the 30th of March 2024 we have our Spring Gathering on the Land van Yemaya for a day of dancing, stillness and playfulness.
And you don’t want to miss the Gathering in June 2024!

We invite you to dance with us.

Awaken your spirit and nourish your soul by movement

Nature

We are inspired by nature. How grass moves in the wind, how water flows, how seasons change the air. Our true nature.

Location

Nature and dance come together at our beautiful location Land van Yemaya in Bellingwolde where we facilitate our gatherings, festival and retreats.

Nice atmospheric ambiance in Groningen. It was my first time here in Groningen because I normally dance in locations in Twente. The opening and closing were in English and immediately indicate that dancing together is fully encouraged here ;).
This evening’s DJ has composed many oriental atmospheres in his music and that immediately influences his actual style on his musical journey.
I will definitely come again 🙂

A glory of elements;
Warmly challenging, contactful, sensitively connected, tasty pure, yin and yang, visibly powerful, vulnerable and safe, open and honest, sweating and tranquility.
To be open to all these movements, and all that in “me” and the “other”, to allow these movements completely, in order to show their emptiness.
A spatial experience on the Land of Yemaja.

We enjoyed this weekend! Very nice place, nice people, fantastic food, great dancing. Downside: now that the week has started again, we miss Inge’s yoga class, Frits’ play fight workshop and the small lake to take a lovely dip in. See you soon!

What an incredibly beautiful and special event this was, never experienced like this before.
Everything was right for me:
The beautiful place in nature, the silence and tranquility, the swimming pond…
The well-kept accommodations made from natural materials…
The delicious and healthy (organic/vegetarian) food…
The silence until 10am and during meals…
The program: 2 hours of ecstatic dance every day, so much fun! And also wonderful yoga and a super cool playfight workshop (playful romping, so much fun!).
But above all the loving, respectful energy, atmosphere and connections with a group of such sweet, fun people.
I felt at home.
And what a world of difference from how I felt before I left…
I now feel much fitter and overall I have improved so much, it is special that this can be done in 3 days.
Once home, that energy continues to work and all kinds of wonderful things happen… And I am full of inspiration for my company!
Intensely grateful!
Thank you Inge van Nimwegen and the entire team for organizing this special event. Until next time!
