Trance Night (December)



Trance Night (December)

Our Annual Winter Solstice Trance Dance Celebration

WInter Solstice

Trance Night – An Evening of Music and Trance for Health and Healing

December’s Trance Night is a Winter Solstice Celebration. Ritually marking the end of the year and beginning of the earth’s new orbit around the sun….traditionally, the time of the return of the LIGHT.

Expect ritual, tribal drum music, dancing in the dark and deep trance.

(Please note: “dancing” means whatever you feel like doing. For many people it is standing and swaying to the music. For others it is far more active. There are no rules and people’s eyes are closed. You know that saying, “Dance as if no one is watching?” This is an opportunity to do just that. No one will be watching. It may be cathartic. It may be cleansing. It is a lot of fun.)

And, you WILL be actually dancing – or moving in what ever way your body wants to move – so please dress accordingly. If you are coming directly from work, bring clothes to changing into. Also note that you will be asked to remove your shoes, so wear nice socks. You can also go barefoot.

This month’s Trance Night will be exploring Movement as Trance – what some might call “Trance Dancing,” you might call a party. Although our form of Trance Dance features original music and may not be anything remotely similar to what others might expect. Ours is “Trance with Purpose” and has a healing nature to it. You can expect to spend a good portion of the time moving in space or lying on the floor for the guided visualization. Please wear clothing to move in and perhaps your own yoga mat to lie down upon. Yoga mats will NOT be provided at the dance studio.


The stages of the evening will follow this structure:

  • Setting the Intention (a written exercise)
  • Preparation
  • Alignment Movement to the Breath
  • Trance (in motion)
  • Trance (in stillness with guided visualization)
  • Re-integration

I especially enjoy Doug’s sense of humor – how he combines compassion with a lighthearted spirit. He sees the bigger picture of life, and focuses not on problems, but on solutions. Doug not only gets results, but everyone has a good time getting them.

”Dan Millman, Author of “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”

“Your Trance Night was a wonderful respite from the world. It was like a vacation from all of the stresses of every day life, a vacation for my soul. It continues to ripple though me today. So glad I came.”


”There are only a handful of people in the country whom I have personally trained and am totally confident in recommending. Doug O’Brien is one of these few"

Anthony Robbins, Author of “Unlimited Power"

”I have attended all three of Doug’s Trance Night sessions. Each experience has been extremely powerful with noticeable results and the impact has lasted. I am definitely looking forward to attending the future Trance Nights.”


I'll be there to Celebrate. $22
