The kids and I went to a Tribal Dance at the eco-village last weekend. We were guided to express ourselves physically within our own comfort zones and ability. It was a place of non-judgement, only acceptance and finding our own Truth. Our energy was gradually getting higher and faster until we were all sweating and out of our minds (some more than others) and back to our senses.
We moved as individuals, then as a group...creating community, a tribe if only for a short time, but perhaps taking that feeling out into the wider community in which we live, remembering that we are all connected. (Until we forget again).
After the dancing, we were guided into meditation...to a place where we were encouraged to get in touch with our Truth as it was alive for us right then. I had a hand resting on my solar plexus and felt my strength...I mean, really felt it. I felt my courage and power. I felt my guiding forces of Peace and Joy and Love. I felt a deepened acceptance of myself in this phase of my life. More gratitude for the different colours of gold and silver in my hair, a softening of the lines on my face. I felt deeply in touch with my true self and very very content.
