Similar to Ecstatic Dance, it’s a substance free event and promotes a practice of its own called, “conscious clubbing.” Morning Gloryville was founded in 2013 by event organizer Samantha Moyo and contemporary dancer Nico Thomas. Their brainchild began in Shore Ditch, East London and has sprung up in 15 different cities- including Berlin, Barcelona, Dublin, Melbourne, Tokyo and New York- since its inception. The San Francisco chapter I was about to embark on marked this city’s 6th episode.

A Point Blunk Original 3 months. That’s how long it’s been since I last had a drink of alcohol. It’s kind of crazy to think I haven’t gone more than a month without a drink since I was 17 maybe 21. That’s over almost a decade of consuming…
