I like Tantric Dance because it’s raw. Alive. There’s no hiding. It can be haunting and sensuous. Sorrowful and fierce. When I begin to move to my body’s subtle inner music, I don’t know what will happen. But, I do know that as the need to “think” and control drops away, new dimensions of freedom, expression and presence emerge in my life.
In the beginning, I danced only in a group. As my practice has deepened, I find myself dancing:
- before starting a new project,
- when my energy feels off,
- to connect with my inner wisdom,
- after an intense or disconcerting experience,
- if there’s tension or “stuckness” in my body,
- simply for pleasure.
Eleven years ago, I was told the breakthrough would happen when I “get out of my head, and into my belly.” Happily, that seems to have happened at long last.
A group for women will be Dancing in Solstice on Sat., Dec. 20 from 2 – 5 p.m. in Omaha. Send a message for details or to register.
