Interested in a fully immersive residential experience?….


This deeply transformative retreat is held over 7 days in Greece.

Next Retreat: August 3rd – 10th 2022

The School of Ecstatic Movement is celebrating 14 years of our comprehensive Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ Teacher Training. The way we deliver our training has changed, but we know how much our hundreds of students over the years have both enjoyed and been transformed by the residential element of the training. So while sitting on a rock on the beach in Pelion, Rebecca had the idea to offer a stand-alone retreat that has all the favourite bits of the previous residential module.

  • Ceremonies
  • Shamanic Healing
  • Rituals
  • And of course lots of Ecstatic Awakening Dance!


The main difference is that now the retreat has no examination element, it is crafted specifically to allow the participants a deeply transformative experience for themselves, and is open to anyone with some experience of Ecstatic Dance.


This residential retreat is limited to 15 participants and 10 of these spaces are held exclusively for teachers, to ensure a warm and secure healing environment for women and men.  The retreat is fully inclusive of food and shared rooms. Although the experience is fully immersive there will be plenty of time for relaxation to enjoy the nourishing surroundings of Pelion and for this reason we have decided to open places for partners, friends and family to accompany participants. Those guests will be invited to participate in as many workshops and sessions as they choose to.

This retreat is being led by the Director of The School of Ecstatic Movement Rebecca Hanscombe and assisted by other skilled Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ Teachers who are graduates of the training.

The all-inclusive 7 day retreat will be in the Pelion Centre, Greece, 3rd – 10th Aug 2022. An area of outstanding natural beauty, Mount Pelion is the sacred mountain of Chiron. Here you will be nurtured Mind, Body, Heart and Soul by the Pelion Community, cozy mountainside conversations, and our dynamic integrated intensive approach to dance, healing, ceremony and shamanism.
