Multi-sensory intuitive dance ceremony.

Celebrating life and strength of the human spirit!

When: Saturday, February 11, 2023 – 4-10 pm

Where: Beach United Church, Toronto

What to expect…

We have created a beautiful practice which integrates intuitive dance, visual arts, breathwork and conscious relating circles.

Upon arrival we will offer you our ‘Symbio Expander’ — a body energizing, heart expanding elixir. Once we close the doors at 5pm sharp, we will open our ceremony with an orientation of the evening and a meditation to ground into the space. Then we will be guided by Dan ‘Dattatreya’ Andronescu in a BreathHOLD Potential Meditation to allow for a more embodied experience as we flow into our 90-minute intuitive dance journey. This is a multi-sensory experience which will immerse you in a space of wonder and self-exploration. We will close our ceremony with a return to breath awareness, a gratitude meditation, and an exercise in conscious relating. Doors will open again at 8pm for the Symbio Social where we will share food, and the priceless gift of time to connect with one another. Everyone is welcome at this time. No registration is needed to attend the Symbio Social from 8-10pm.

FEATURING

Dynamic Musical Journey

Harnessing a range of genres masterfully mixed through the new Symbio Soundsystem. Your ears will reel in ecstasy 🤤

Inspiring Visuals

Not just eye candy, A VISUAL FEAST! Presented through the new Symbio BIG SCREEN, your eyeballs might cry in catharsis 🥲

Symbio Expander

A pre-dance delight designed to nourish your DREAMjunction experience. This grounding, heart-opening elixir is prepared with Love and nutrient dense ingredients 😋

BreathHOLD Potential Meditation

Remember your Breath-HOLD Potential, a take-away practice to cultivate Longevity, Vitality and Mental Clarity, to anchor presence and remember the Observer within. Breath is life! 🌬

A Space Made Sacred

This is a safe container of non-judgement and inclusion for healing and expansion. We feel radical self-acceptance is essential for a thriving life. We facilitate this by supporting freedom of expression, self-exploration, communion with the environment, and our commUnity 🥰

Intuitive Dance

Our hosts will be supporting you to tap into the innate wisdom of your body. This practice is about letting primal forces of the universe move through your organism; allowing your being to move however it feels called, even if that means laying down for 20 minutes! Intuitive dance is for mental, emotional, and physical healing. Intuitive dance is for spiritual well-being. Intuitive dance is for JOY! What else are we here for?!? 🤩

Nourishing Dinner Option

We believe food has the power to heal and nourish the body, soul, and mind. With holistic nutrition as one of our core modalities we are offering a nutritious and delicious meal to enjoy during the social. This will include a warming coconut curry (choice of vegan or lamb) with rice/quinoa; mixed green salad with maple tahini dressing; Symbio Squares for dessert, a true “treat” for the body. Select VIP Wristband “With Dinner” or “Dinner Only” option if you are only coming for the social 🍲

Symbio Social

A space to meet new friends and other beautiful souls. A time for people to foster authentic relationships and share their own offerings. A variety of herbal teas will also be available during the social. Admission to this last part of the evening is free. Open to the public! Our only requirement is that you come with an open mind and an open heart 💖

SYMBIO LOVE:

“It’s hard to put this incredible experience into words and to describe how elevated I feel right now; my heart is SO full of unconditional love, joy and gratitude; I feel SO present, free, connected and SO at peace. The combination of the ecstatic dance with the breathwork is very powerful, transforming and healing. During the ecstatic dance I experienced a profound release; I felt free and powerful. The transition to the breathwork was just divine; by the first round, I was out of my body. This whole experience is out of this world!! I am very grateful for being part of the Symbio community and being around these amazing people!” -Mariana Potero

“…it fills my heart, makes me feel amazing, recharges me, sends me home ready to tackle life again…” – Heather Doherty

“So grateful for the Symbio Community! These events created by Trish and Christian are overflowing with passion. To be in this community where one’s creative expression can be explored and acknowledged is liberating and beautiful.” – Liz Defreitas

“There are not many opportunities to connect or create connection outside your immediate clique. The retreat facilitated that in a meaningful way and short period, almost like an awakening for something you didn’t realize you need. I see the potential for Symbio to provide a new structure for meaningful community that so many people desire.” -Wesley S.

FACILITATORS

Christian is passionate about creating profound immersive experiences for people. With a reverence for design in the broadest sense, his particular area of work integrates music, storytelling, ecology, “synaesthetics” and dance.

“The practice of ‘stepping back’ to feel out my own intentions has been a purifying gift, which keeps on giving. It reminds me of this desire to nourish in others the most magnificent of feelings!”

Versed in an array of technology, Christian began performing with some of the first real-time audio-video performance systems. He was fortunate to have worked with a number of prominent brands at a young age, performing at the launch of HBO Canada, and the first Nuit Blanche to be held in Toronto. This lead to supporting various corporate event productions for brands like National Geographic, Yahoo, Heineken, and holding residencies at some of Toronto’s biggest Nightclubs (Lucid, Muzik). Christian then created an interactive ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ DVD in 2006, which earned him a scholarship to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). While centred in the department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation (FVNMA), he utilized the multi-disciplinary freedom made available at SAIC to pursue courses in the Humanities; Animation; and Performance.

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Christian worked on concert visuals for the Toronto summer series ‘Electric Island’. There, he was fortunate to support the performances of artists like Sven Väth, Maya Jane Coles, and Dixon, while experimenting with his own custom performance technology called ‘Gysr’ (geyser). This is a software interface which facilitates mapping aesthetic natural language to media and information, for flexible retrieval in a live setting. Continuing its development, Christian founded a creative collective called INNERST8, who put forth a number of productions prioritizing mixed media. This involved collaboration with artists of varied discipline, including Paul Kwitek; Petar Dundov; Stephanie Payne; and Natasha Kudashkina. Further inspired by holistic health modalities, and an ongoing environmentalist drive, the vision for Symbio was born.

Trish creates safe and sacred spaces of non-judgement for radical self-expression and self-acceptance. 

She is a maternal soul doing the work to live her human experience to the fullest. She loves dancing, singing, food, and communing with nature. As a holistic health and wellness practitioner since 2015, most of her work has involved supporting women seeking mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. She does this using an array of holistic lifestyle practices and modalities including nutrition, ecstatic dance, breathwork, and neurolinguistic studies. 

“The greatest love story we will ever be a part of is the one which leads us back to our own heart.” – Trish

Trish hosts transformational events, including retreats, ecstatic dances, and sacred healing ceremonies. Her experience includes one-on-one client coaching and a foundational 12-week online program to empower women.  Her path was inspired by a desire to heal her body and mind after years of neglect and depletion. This all came to the surface after the birth of her youngest son. Once she began her healing journey she felt a deep calling to support others on their own journeys.

“When holding space, I intuitively provide what is needed for my clients to feel seen, heard, and supported on all levels. My purpose and passion in this life is to be of service through the supreme state of Love. All the years of work I’ve invested into creating a magnanimous life are culminating in the work I’m doing through Symbio.” -Trish

As a breathwork facilitator, coach and Yoga aspirant Dan has been studying and working with the breath since 2012 through Hatha and Pranayama yoga, Wim Hof Breathing, Elemental Rhythm and BrethHOLD Meditation. As one of the first Elelemntal Rhythm facilitators and team member, Dan has led hundreds of classes and journeys, in group, 1-on-1, corporate, festival, and retreat settings. He has also trained 100+ breathwork facilitators.

As a personal development and self-empowerment coach Dan is the founder of Omni BEing Ascension. He guides growth & purpose-driven conscious leaders to overcome stress, overwhelm and burnout in order to live a life of vitality, presence, inner peace and freedom. He does this through discipline in expanding self-awareness through the 3 command centers: Body, Breath and Mind as captured in the Omni BEing Self-activation Process.

On a former path Dan used to work as a materials engineer, where he experienced a high stress environment that led him to endure anxiety, depression, and mental fatigue. During one of his first yoga classes in 2012, he experienced a non-ordinary state of consciousness while lengthening his exhale to a breath hold. This experience profoundly activated him on a path of deep self exploration that enabled him to find purpose, vitality and inner peace. He left the engineering field in 2017 to travel around the world in pursuit of Self study through Yoga, breathwork, primal movement and apprenticing with plant medicine.

VENUE: Beach United Church

This stunning sanctuary was built in 1914, and renovated by Black & Moffat in 2013 with state of the art energy efficiency. On the roof is a 165 solar panel array, which produces enough electricity to power three or four average homes, yet is just one of many efficiencies.
It’s stewards have welcomed us to create a spiritual experience here which is non-dogmatic. Inside, it features an expansive timber ceiling and gothic architectural elements. Beneath this rests a smooth oak floor, which invites your bare-feet to the sensation of touch, as you dance in delight!

Be an adventurous date!
Be a great friend!
Invite a bunch of your peeps!
Or be brave, and join us solo! 👹
