Roman is a community organizer, an educator, a seaker of a higher human potential, and a curator of fine music. Music has played a big part in his life by always providing him with the impulse and inspiration to dance and to be moved. As dancing is his favorite way to step into a state of flow, he is always looking for that magical sound and rythem that helps ease into that energetic state. With that Roman has trained his ear and body to pick out specific frequencies in music that help to uplift, let love, and feel free. There realy is no limit to what he will listen to and be able to enjoy, even country music.
For Dj’ing he draws his material from African, African Inspired, South and Central American, East and South Asian, Arabic, European, and the indiginus and rythmic cultures of the world. For Ecstatic Dance Chicago Roman is intending to set a sweet and celebratory energy with the best music the world has to offer. For the past decade Roman has been hosting and Djing transformational dance journeys in Chicago. He is the founder, and lead Organizer of Ecstatic Dance Chicago.

Barret Hedeen, The Witness Energy Healing / Intuitive Past Life Readings
What things have you experienced before this life? What influences do they have on you presently? Where were you before you were here? Our past lives provide the backstory to the life we are living here. The more we know about them, the more we know about ourselves.
Barret has been assisting souls like yourself in seeing more of themselves, as the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a healing system based on non-duality. In this experiential time together, you will explore what karma has led to the experience that you are now having, with the goal of coming to release it and know your true self, one of love and of peace.
