Reflections on the First Vibrant Dawn: Morning Rave in Detroit
NOTE: TO SEE WHEN THE NEXT VIBRANT DAWN IS HAPPENING, HEAD TO OUR EVENTS PAGE!
The first Vibrant Dawn was a blast. Over 60 people gathered at 6:00 am on a Tuesday in Detroit for guided movement, dancing, and yoga. We had a wild party without any drugs or alcohol. And the flavor was pure Detroit yet totally new and experimental.
At Inner Waymark we find the "morning rave" model (early weekday yoga and dance party) fascinating because it bridges the cultural edge between the mainstream club scene and alternative/holistic/spiritual practices. It's a place where people can express themselves authentically, however weird or quirky they may be. That means a lot for people who have never danced without alcohol, or who crave a community of positive change-makers.
The response to the first one was phenomenal. Here are some of the testimonials we got:
