The sacredness of dancing
Anna Barton, the first and from 1979 until 1996 the main focaliser of the ‘Sacred Dances’ in Findhorn, once made a t-shirt with the slogan “Dance can help to change the world. Do it!”. Good eh? Dancing definitely works, not only on the body, but on the emotions and thoughts too is my experience. During the 5 Rhythms we take the energy outwards. When dancing the Sacred Dances (or Dances of Universal Peace) from all over the world, we draw the energy flow inwards and then move it outwards again, like breathing, ongoing spiralling.
During this summer’s Findhorn Sacred Dance Festival week we celebrated and let the music, the song and the unending whirling dance weave our lives together. The ‘Ceilidh’ evening with Scottish country dances was one of my favourite. Come and let me swirl you around.
Would you like to dance?
