Classes and Workshops


COSMIC DANCE: A Celebration of the Equinox through Drumming and Dance

Integral Church invites you to celebrate the turning of the Cosmic Clock through ritual, drumming and dance.

Based on Matthew Fox’s four paths of Creation Spirituality, the Cosmic Dance honors the changing seasons during the quarterly solstice and equinox (Ostara, Litha, Mabon and Yule). The Cosmic Dance is an opportunity to bring forth what you love most in the world, open and release what no longer serves you, dance and sweat your prayers, and connect with a growing spiritual community.

Bring a drum, rattle and/or sacred item for the altar. This event may get hot and loud. No photography is permitted, but dancers and drummers of all skill levels are welcome. No children under 12 years old, please.

2019 DATES:

Fridays: March 22, June 21, September 20 and December 20
9-11 p.m.
The Body Electric Yoga Co.
685 30th Ave N, Saint Petersburg, Florida 33704
$15 suggested donation

    We have a teen boy who is looking for other boys to develop friendships with as our neighborhood has changed over the years and the kids have all moved away.
    Do you have or know of any teen groups that have boys in it? Lol mostly always girls in our circles.
    I have started a teen Meetup on to promote a healthier balance of resources for teens and could use help with marketing it and filling the calendar too if you have matching pieces to THAT puzzle also.
    Love your website and REALLY love your mission statement. How refreshing…so many doors…so much to explore!
    Blessings abound for your Church 📿💖🍃,L
