It is time again to dance the words of Anais Nin ~

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

Living never wore one out so much as the effort not to live.

Life is truly known only to those who suffer, lose, endure adversity and stumble from defeat to defeat.

Perfection is static, and I am in full progress.

-Anais Nin
Vaccinated dancers, we are dancing at Studio Sway on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm. Reservations can be made by emailing me at ecstaticdanceabq.com. Reading from last nights dance: "When I am dancing, it feels like my prayer. It's like an offering. I offer my head back to the dance, I offer my shoulders back to the dance, my elbows, my hands, my spine, my knees, my feet, my whole self, my bones, my blood, my experience, my suffering... I offer it all back to the dance and I say: take it, do whatever you want with me. Release me." Gabrielle Roth

Mystery is not to be solved.
Darkness has its own radiance.
Chaos is the rhythm that rocks the world.
Intuition is intelligence at the speed of light.
Destiny is to be danced on your own two feet.

Dance the way your body wants to, without choreography or judgement! Get out of your head and into your body, discover the innate body wisdom you possess.

Ecstatic Dance is an authentic, spontaneous, expressive, meditative movement practice that incorporates elements of various body - mind - movement practices. Go beyond the limits of your habitual movement patterns and explore your inner dance. We typically dance barefooted without verbal interaction. There is no choreography or instruction. A focus, a poetry reading, or other dance practice sugge

Operating as usual

Beautiful Shot of Swan Couple sliding through the mist over the water 🌊 🦢 💙

Poem from last night's dance

The Swan by Rilka

This labouring of ours with all that remains undone,
as if still bound to it,
is like the lumbering gait of the swan.

And then our dying—releasing ourselves
from the very ground on which we stood—
is like the way he hesitantly lowers himself

into the water. It gently receives him,
and, gladly yielding, flows back beneath him,
as wave follows wave,

while he, now wholly serene and sure,
with regal composure,
allows himself to glide.

“Energy moves in waves. Waves move in patterns. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is just that, energy, waves, patterns, rhythms. Nothing more. Nothing less. A dance.”
― Gabrielle Roth, Sweat Your Prayers

Dancers, yes we are still dancing at Studio Sway on Tuesday nights (reservation only). However, we danced outside at my home last week and we will do the same this week. As the weather gets colder we will dance at the studio. All dancers are vaccinated and we now wear masks. We have room for one or two more dancers tonight. If you want to join us, reach out to me at [email protected] and I will send you directions. Dance out of story and into emptiness!!

Ecstatic Dance with Elizabeth at EMBODYDANCE Santa Fe this Thursday August 12th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Let's dance.

Our first dance back at Studo Sway was heart opening. In Mary Oliver's poem Wild Geese, she says, "You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves." And, together we made space for that to happen. It is great to be dancing in community again and we will be dancing all Tuesday nights in August! To attend this dance, register by emailing me at [email protected]. This dance is limited to 12 dancers. Proof of vaccination is required.

07/30/2021

Ecstatic Dance Albuquerque will begin the first Tuesday in August at Studio Sway - just as before. However, due to the Covid situation, the dance will be limited to 10 - 12 people and proof of vaccination will be required. If you would like to dance this coming Tuesday, please reserve your spot by contacting me at [email protected].

Dancers, I am discontinuing the park dance for the time being. The music logistics proved to be a challenge.

DANCE INTIMATE WITH ELIZABETH

I will be offering "Dance Intimate with Elizabeth" on Tuesday Nights. This is a small women's dance at my home. The space accomodates 6 to 8 dancers.

If you are interested in joining us, contact me by email and I will let you know if we have an opening. Right now I have one opening for tomorrow night.

Last night's poem:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’doesn’t make any sense.

Rumi

All, I am not moving to Kauai. I had to fool FB into thinking I live in Kauai to sell things on FB Marketplace in Kauai. Really need to figure out how to get FB to stop sending out all changes I make to my account.

05/26/2020

Do you feel it. We will be together again soon.

Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds. Rumi

TILICHO LAKE
In this high place
it is as simple as this,
leave everything you know behind.
Step toward the cold surface,
say the old prayer of rough love
and open both arms.
Those who come with empty hands
will stare into the lake astonished,
there, in the cold light
reflecting pure snow
the true shape of your own face.
David Whyte

I am here~ Rumi ~read by Coleman Barks

Wonderful Albuquerque Dance Tribe, let's dance together tonight at our regular time. I will send out one of my MixCloud playlists. Once you connect to MixCloud, all you need to do is start the playlist at 7:05, warm up, and dance as we do together. I look forward to feeling our beautiful tribal energy again! The thing I miss the most is the tenderness, love, and freedom that is experienced when we come together. The Poem this evening is the Rumi poem, I Am Here, read by Coleman Barks.

As I peruse the FB dance sites, I see that many people are offering online dances on Zoom. I will participate in one of these dances and then decide if this is something that might work for us. Please message me separately if this is something that appeals to you. If enough people express interest, I will give online dancing a try next Tuesday at our regular time.
