Wholeness is absolutely physical. Come explore how to embrace your wholeness Feb 23-March 16 in Dance: A Sacred Art. The Ruby Way Online Dance Practice with me and friends from across the globe!
A lot of energy is spent on trying to not be something or trying to be more of something than we are. This usually makes us tense and unnatural.
Here’s what I have learned in my years of dancing with body and soul.
Secret 1: You are whole.
Secret 2: You probably don’t want to be. (See shame, rage, disease, grief, ugliness)
Secret 3: The Secret to Have it All? Love it all.
Secret 4: The fast track to wholeness is dance. Why? The body doesn’t know how to NOT BE all that it is.
Eugene Robinson says, “When the going gets tough, the tough go dancing.” Really? Yes.
Harvard trained Dr. Deborah Cohen is a perfect example of this. She made front page of the San Francisco Chronicle this week for her commitment to dancing for health. She even prescribes dance for patients. Last Fall when she had to have a double mastectomy she sought out a Doctor who loves to dance. Before surgery the whole medical team danced because she wanted her body to be in the most vibrant state possible. The youtube of her dancing with the team went viral.
Sheila Collins shares a similar commitment to dancing all of life in her book Warrior Mother. I highly recommend it.
