We have a whole host of events lined up for this year, with more still to come.
For few hours each month we will come together to create an environment where we can unleash our true selves and enjoy a sensory experience. Our indoor sessions will be a friendly space where one can immerse themselves in music, dance, art and song. Unlike our outdoor ecstatic dances we encourage anyone to bring instruments with them and to chime in with the music, if this instrument is your voice this is also welcome! We will have a selection of instruments to use, as well as a microphone set up for vocalists.
~ DANCE ~
We will be dancing under candle light while immersed in beautiful scents and eclectic sounds. We welcome you to come just as you are, to be open to playfulness & diving deep into the evening with your bodies and all their wonderful functions, as well as connecting with those around you.
To immerse fully into the experience of dance and embodiment, we ask that guests arrive sober, dance without judgement, shoes, speaking and phones. This allows us to be deeply connected to the music and to one another’s body language.
~ ART ~
There will be a communal art piece which all are welcome to participate in, please feel free to bring your own paints/brushes/pens/pencils – though we will have supplies for you to share.
~ SPACE ~
As always, we will have an altar and a chill space, you are welcome to add anything to the altar or bring your own cushions and blankets to make the space even cosier.
Our Generosity Café will have tea’s, snacks and cakes on offer for participants to help themselves to, please bring cash to donate to this, it is run on donations and the money we make supports PsyCare UK; a charity we have a close affinity with.
You are also welcome to bring any homemade goodies to add to the table, for people to enjoy over the course of the evening.
~ JAM SESSION ~
Our jam sessions are open to all, even if you don’t consider yourself to be a musician! We all have our place in a jam even if it is just humming along or jingling your keys. The jam is acoustic only, to keep neighbours happy! If you are a practicing musician we encourage you bringing your own instruments.

58th Bristol Scout Group
Gadshill Rd, Eastville, Bristol BS5 6PU
There is a small carpark onsite and plenty of on street parking otherwise.
If you are coming on bike please be mindful there is very limited places to lock them up!
There is a small storage room inside the building where biked can be stored, contact us in advance to let us know if you will need to use this room
Lets start by saying that these spaces are also open to non-binary folk, gender neutral folk and trans-gender women. So, anyone who identifies in these ways are welcome to join. If anyone has sensitivities around the topic of gender please contact Wild Beats directly so we can work to ensure everyone feels safe before attending.
The vision is to journey through the next 3 months together with predominantly the same group of people.
It’s totally fine if you can’t make every month but the more you can make, the stronger the circle will become.
Each Friday session booked will be 18.30 to 21.45 at St Werberghs Community Centre.
The one Sunday session will be 13.00 to 18.15 at 58th Bristol Scout Group.
18.30 – doors open, welcome to the circle
18.45 – doors close, the sharing circle begins
– After the doors close at 18.45 no one will be able to enter, we are creating a sacred and safe container which means that we have to respect how disturbances could impact this. Please always arrive on time or risk missing the circle.
– During the circle we will begin with introductions, an opening to the space and the theme and then head into the sharing circle. Everyone will have a little over 4 minutes each to talk, some may need more and some less and of course the length of time will be determined by how many people attend.
20.20 – Grounding meditation & dance
– Following the circle we will all sit or lie comfortably, entering into a body scan ready to embody any thoughts or feelings that arose during the sharing.
– The dance is a space for further release to happen, letting our emotions flow through us with movement. Following the same themes as other conscious dance spaces we will dance barefoot, no talking, no phone, no judgement and no substances – simply immersing ourselves in the music and the journey we are entering into both with one another and within. Noises of release are welcomed and encouraged.
– We will dance under candle light & there will be a communal art piece which can be added to throughout the course of the evening.
21.20 – Closing circle and re-centring.
– During the session some people may experience some profound feelings and releases which help shift something inside them. It is important that we leave the space feeling that whatever has come up is left in the safety of the room. We will close the space by entering back into circle for a final share and shake off.
21.45 – We leave the space.
The themes planned for the next 2 sessions are;
Session 3 – love & abundance
With this session being so close to festivities, we will come together and connect with love and abundance. All are invited to bring an anonymous offering as a ‘secret sister’ for someone else in the group to take home as a gift. The lead up to Christmas can also amplify lack of love or abundance or may not sit well with people who do not practice Christianity. We will hold a space for each other to wholeheartedly accept and talk about how these festivities make them feel.
Session 4 – connections & cycles
Reaching a new year but ending a cycle of 4 months with new friends, we will celebrate the connections we have made and how we anticipate 2022 will be for us.
For our final Sunday session we will follow a very similar format to the previous 3 but dance for a little longer, have a guest sound healer come to close the space, and then we will eat together. Time will also be set aside to decide where we want to take the sessions through 2022.
Following each session we can go on an optional full moon walk together.
Please private message us to book a place, more info will be shared once interest is expressed.
Once places are confirmed we will discuss house-keeping & group boundaries/guidelines in a Signal group chat so everyone attending can feel a little more supported before entering into the physical space. This is something we will build together month on month.
£15 / £20 / £25 for the Friday sessions
£25 / £30 / £35 for the Sunday session
Please offer what you can
Our finale of this 4 part journey together. An extended day to come together and celebrate all that we have shared together.
More info coming soon!
