"To bring voice to the soul’s expression through the synergy of sacred movement, sound, meditation, and activism.”
— Rainbow Body Matrix Mission Statement
For more than 25 years, Rainbow Body Matrix has connected with Divine Nature to create community, promote healing, and creativity through Sacred Movement, Sound, Meditation & Activism. Inspired by Afro-Brazilian cosmology, the ancient arts of music and dance, astrology, numerology, ritual, while paying homage to the ancestors, Rainbow Body Matrix is grounded to mother earth and energetically connected to the collective.
In the erratic state of the world today, Rainbow Body Matrix offers members a deeper connection to self, neighbors, and the world, finding purpose through movement, the arts, and the metaphysical. A place to be stronger together than apart. Unearthing passion for use in everyday life. A chance to thrive rather than survive. Providing healing and support to the global community at large.
