Turbulent Times Require Furious Dancing

Shocked, numb, angry, sad
Frightened and disillusioned
This is why we danced.

This morning we came together, my beautiful, diverse, open-hearted community of women and I, to do the thing that made most sense after a tense election night: dance.

Leading this class is a high honor. It’s my calling to help women move emotions through and out of their bodies, to help them unblock constrictions and release limited perceptions of themselves and the world through this class I call PranaShakti.

As I prepared I knew it would be a powerful class. And it was. Most women who arrived were feeling shocked, angry, sad and very frightened.  We moved through ALL of those feelings until we were centered and calm. Until we could feel the palpable presence of the Divine.

Then we could feel hope and love again. And our calm minds were free to imagine a future that would draw us forward rather than one we wanted to escape.

The music I chose carried us on this journey – so I wanted to share it with you. My prayer is that you will play some or all of these songs to help you move whatever emotions you are feeling during these turbulent times and that you, too, will be left with feelings of hope, love and an image of the future that will draw you forward.

    How I wish I were close enough to come to your classes!! An amusingly enough Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu sung by Deva Premal and Gobinday Mukunday sung by Sada Sat Kaur have been on repeat while I work and do my life and when I wake up in the night, I turn them on to fill my brain so it does not need to chew on fear.

    I appreciate you. Thank you for your words and space holding.
