Ecstatic Dance is a free form improvisational movement journey accompanied by DJ Craig Kohland of Shamans Dream. It is a "speech free" heart opening practice intended to collectively raise the group vibration dissolving boundaries between one another and within the self getting us out of our heads and into our hearts. It is designed to bring us into our deepest presence and enable true feeling and experience of ecstasy and bliss.
The driving force inside Craig Kohland is the healing rhythm of the drum and the creative expression of the sacred. He is a talented multi-percussionist, performer, DJ, music producer, retreat facilitator and healing arts practitioner. Shaman’s Dream Music Collective is Craig’s multi-faceted musical project that, along with producers Rara Avis and Amani Friend, has produced 25 albums in the last 15 years.
Since 1995 Shaman’s Dream has been at the forefront of the yoga music/ ecstatic dance scene. Craig is the musical director of the “Shaman’s Dream World Groove Ensemble” and along with yoga teacher Micheline Berry has co-facilitated over 400 ecstatic dance/ “live” world music concerts plus countless live music yoga classes and ritual retreats. Craig is the co-founder of Yogitunes, an online digital music store that features a huge selection of yoga inspired music from all over the world.
