Miriam, Mary, Maryam, how will my garden grow?
Mata Sindhu, were we always dancers?
How did you find and capture joy?
Peek-a-Boo!! ~ Do you see me now beloveds?
I learn over and over again that tuning into spontaneous expression
is the key to presence and showing up to our life.
People often ask me why I dance.
to get out of my head
to commune with the sacred
to feel my power
to bliss out
to be with my pain
to process my emotions
to express what I can’t in words
I Dance to Celebrate,
I Dance to Create.
Why Do You Dance?
and….Tag – You`re it!
