Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life. A celebration of those souls who have walked the earth with us & shared their love. It falls right after Halloween, All Souls Day & All Saints Day. So, there’s a lot ‘o life around the subject of death at this time of year!
It’s some serious fun to celebrate. But what about when it’s not fun? When darkness seems to rule the day & we don’t know where to turn?
Watch this video from The REALM to hear some spooky, supernatural stories, inspired songs, & a message about how, when faced with real uncertainty & grief in our lives, we can call on Love. From the death of a loved one to the daily deaths we face in our jobs, relationships & finances, there is no call too great or too small for Love to answer.
Oh, yeah…& there’s a dance party involved. Movement heals. It’s a sure-fire way to dance out the darkness!
You can attend live in Dallas, TX every Saturday from 6-7pm. See the Events schedule for details & directions. Sign up for the newsletter (at the bottom of this page) & we’ll let you know when we’re live online!
