The Niyahmah Collective is comprised of multidisciplinary artists with a similar vision. “The intention of the collective is to represent the spiritual aspect of art that expresses the essence of the artist within. As well as to support individuals in finding their creative voice and facilitate the fact that we are all artists”. Naomi Athena is a dance facilitator for Ecstatic Dance, which is based on Gabrielle Roth’s healing method. Roth’s method was originally used in halfway houses and with schizophrenic patients to help them express deep emotions. According to Naomi “When you are in a sacred place, deep healing can happen as a result of using your body to express the things you can’t speak”.
Ecstatic Dance is holding free lunch time workshops on campus across from Simard Hall Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during Women’s Worlds from 12:15 to 12:45. I encourage everyone to come by and free themselves from the stresses of life. No need to be an experienced dancer or artist to partake in the activities, simply come by with an open mind. Through exploration of movement, paint, and other mediums, you may discover a few things you didn’t know about yourself. I do suggest you do so with extreme caution, you may get addicted to the joyous expression!
