let’s dance

is getting just a little bit tired of waking up to snow on the ground when it’s supposed to be spring already. (Whine whine.) So I was heartened to find the video above on the “Move and Be Moved” blog of Visudha de los Santos, an artist and healer who facilitates ecstatic dance workshops based on Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms and other expressive movement modalities.

Visudha had posted the YouTube video on her blog under the title: “We Are Called to Dance.” Called, I believe, as in a holy calling. What could be more sacred than our natural impulse to move joyfully to music? Rumi wrote:

We came whirling out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust.

The stars made a circle, and in the middle we dance. 

Just viewing this video makes me feel hopeful. Spring will come! Soon! In the meantime, I’m taking a dance break. In my living room, among the stars.
