For many people, the idea of “dance” is relegated to professionals. But for Cynthia Winton-Henry, dance is the movement of life. In the pages of this book, she invites all of us, regardless of experience, into the possibility of dance/movement as a spiritual practice. Offering simple movement suggestions that even the clumsy among us can try, Winton-Henry opens up a liberating form of spiritual practice that can lead to spirit-centred living in our human bodies. Drawing on her extensive background in movement and dance and her studies and understanding of spirituality, she combines her lived experience to introduce such practices as: · Dance for Soul Retrieval: Movements that can bring serenity, energy, humour, strength and healing · Seven Minutes of Heaven Therapy, or Just Vacation: Movement practices for invoking, blessing, releasing, balancing, discerning · A Few Elegant Forms: Open, loose movement structures to help us follow our own instincts to move DANCE – THE SACRED ART is a simple, approachable resource for people at all levels on the movement path who want to explore how dance and movement can be an important element in their spiritual growth. The book, also, includes suggestions for “Creating Dancing Community” for readers who want to take their dance and movement practices to the next level.
