Exciting and Zenful News!

Hey Zenful Dancers!

I have been invited to contribute a chapter on Zenful Dance Moving Meditation as part of a Dance Meditation Anthology publication.  I submitted the abstract for the chapter and I’m waiting for feedback and hopefully an acceptance letter.  This would be an amazing vehicle to help get the word out about Zenful Dance!

Fingers crossed!

Counting Down to Day 19 (Day 110 out of 129) of the Middle Path Makeover – Balance

What goes up must come down. What you throw out there will come back to you. What you think most often you will attract more thoughts like that to you. There are (at least) two sides to every story; which side are you? Listen to them both before forming an opinion.

Stand on both feet with your weight distributed evenly and your body will expel less energy than if you stand on only one. But stand on one foot and your other limbs (head, arms, leg of the second foot) will automatically answer the call of the first foot by extending and expelling more energy to balance out the lack of the first. Falling or not, that IS grace. It is the balance of life. And life can be a little off sometimes. How wonderful that we have the opportunity to witness our own unevenness!

One foot or two, or no feet at all. It is all just life working in balance with what we throw out there. Hang on to your sense of humor! 🙂

Counting Down to Day 27 (Day 102 out of 129) of the Middle Path Makeover – Fashion Forward Thinking

As we all know, history has a tendency to repeat itself. I for one have always attempted to stay abreast of the latest in news, current events, fashion, politics, sports, health, business, travel and entertainment but I often find myself missing the boat. It’s challenging to stay on top of all of this stuff when I’m practicing being. Just being in the moment. How many days, months and years must be spent dedicated to fashion and what’s going to be cool… someday soon? Perhaps if I just stay completely still, fashion will just cycle ’round my way eventually and I’ll be so cool, it’ll be as if I’ve just come back from the future!

Keep on keepin’ on and be true,

Counting Down to Day 31 (Day 98 out of 129) of the Middle Path Makeover – The Beat

Newness marks a beat. The end marks a beat. And then there are all the beats in between. There are Hip Hop beats, Swing beats, Samba beats and more. Heart beats. Life beats at our door. Open your ears and open your heart to the beat and dance. Dance until the beat overcomes your feet and body, your mind and your will. Dance. Keep dancing. Dance for your life.
