Ch’ien / The Creative – Sunday, Nov. 17th with Mikaya Swab

 

Ch’ien / The Creative

The creative power of dance is available to us. Let any frantic activity of the mind dissolve into your dance with open receptivity.

Explore dance, movement, breath, stillness and wonder. Explore your “yes.” Explore your “no.” Explore your light and your shadow. Open your heart to forgiveness and compassion.

Let us gather again, on this sacred dance floor.

What is offered is a mix, a journey, a time and space to move and be moved. To let old patterns that no longer serve you to pass over and on, with ease and grace. To make more room for the expansion of your gifts and dreams. To balance your wild spirit and woke mind.

About Mikaya Swabb

Mikaya Swabb, founder and resident DJ of Dance Church Maui from 2011-2019, has an advanced understanding of dj set arrangement for conscious dance events, yoga classes and ceremonies. He uses a spectrum of musical genres to deepen somatic embodiment through movement, breath and presence. Using a large bell curve progression in his sets, the journey begins peacefully, builds momentum and contrast, and then lands softly with resolution and grace.

Mikaya’s mixes inspire the full expression of meditation through movement in ways that widen the scope of one’s self-awareness. Mikaya has shared the stage with David Starfire, The Human Experience, Ean Golden, Nickodemus, [Clever Alias], and DJ Dragonfly to name a few. He has played at Dance Church Maui, Asheville Movement Collective, Mandala Yoga, Maui Conscious Dance Collective, Burning Man, Beloved Festival, Element 11, and Lumeria Maui. He’s also an experienced sound healer that plays the gong, Tibetan singing bowl, Native American flute, N’goni, hand drum, and other sacred sound healing instruments.
