The Cosmic Mass is a participatory, intercultural ritual that builds community through dance, music, immersive visual art, spoken word, grieving, meditation, and celebration!
Imagine a worship celebration that’s truly a celebration!
Imagine dancing (and sweating!) your prayers, rather than sitting on benches and being read to, being preached at, or reading from books, including songbooks.
Imagine emerging from a worship celebration feeling that every element of your being - mind, body, emotions, spirit, and soul - has been engaged. Impossible? No - this is the Cosmic Mass.
The Cosmic Mass reinvigorates Western ritual by deconstructing the forms of worship we have inherited from the modern era and going back to the most primal form of worship: dance.
DJs and live musicians provide the musical ambiance and the VJ provides immersive images that tell the story of the theme celebrated. We dance in the presence of these images, bringing in the spirit of the theme!
