Dance - The Sacred Art

The Joy of Movement as a Spriitual Practice
  • By Cynthia Winton-Henry
A guide to incorporating the sacred dimensions of dancing and moving into spiritual practice.

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 klutzy of us can try, Winton-Henry opens up a liberating form of spiritual practice that can lead to spirit-centered 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, humor, 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 brief introductions to "Dancing Spirit Communities," such as InterPlay, Conscious Dance, and Authentic Movement, for readers who want to take their dance and movement practices to the next level.
