After a single posting back in the beginning, I'm going to get this party going again! Since starting Dance Night, we've been going strong with monthly dances, now being held at Harmony Yoga. Last August, I undertook the fire initiation that is Burning Man, and discovered 5Rhythms at the RhythmWave camp, an incredible experience of what a dance community can create. Over New Years, I traveled over the mountains to Olympia, WA and danced with Amara and Sara Pagano at Waves Studio, my first 5Rhythms workshop called "Patterns." Last week, I returned to Waves for another workshop with Kate Shela, a gifted teacher who weaves the shamanic journey with 5Rhythms. In the coming months, I hope to bring 5Rhythms to Spokane, WA. In addition to our once-monthly Dance Night, we will hold a Sunday morning "Dance Your Prayers."
Let's see how this experiment flows.
"Holiness should be wholeness, and wholeness is always a dancing state, a state where the dancer disappears into the dance...Dance your way to God. Dance till the stars come down from the rafters. Dance creates the fire in which all that is useless is burned, only the essential remains. Dance creates the fire in which gold becomes purer and purer and purer, and ultimately only purity is left." - Osho
