Awakening to the Dance
Dance is the metaphor I use for our spiritual journey through life, for it has always been at the center of who I am. All life dances: the wind, the seasons, the stars and humanity. We are all One. I invite you to share this journey inward as we awaken to who we really are. I hope that the thoughts and questions that arise in my life and the posts in this blog will inspire you. Please comment and join the conversation. Peace, love, and joy to you all.
To live is to dance, to dance is to live.” Snoopy
“For dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of all the arts, because it is no mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself. It is the only art, as Rahel Varnhagen said, of which we ourselves are the stuff.” Havelock Ellis, The Dance of Life
I am an ex-high school English teacher and modern dancer who writes and teaches workshops on releasing your fear. As part of my spiritual journey, I have explored Buddhism, Christianity, Unity, Science of Mind, Chakra Balancing and anything valuable that shows up. As an eclectic thinker and life-long learner, I write inspirational essays and educational comment, and have written a spiritual memoir Awakening to the Dance: A Journey to Wholeness. I love the fine arts, especially dance since I danced with a company in the 1970’s and taught modern dance for half my life. Dance has always been a spiritual as well as physical practice for me. As a high school teacher, I worked with students from diverse cultures, especially Native American and African-American, and I love to learn about different cultures. I read fiction and spiritual books, hike and commune with Nature, and have conversations with friends over good food.
