“Come to dance like Shiva at our Burning Man camp fundraiser. The DJ’s beats will pound into your psyche and open your mind to a greater social consciousness and together we will bring harmony to this crazy thing that we call life.”

Or something similar like:

“Create space and awareness in your soul. Dance to world class music in our sacred space and as a community we can steer this nation in a better direction.”

You get the drift?
