THE DANCER...

The first time I came here it was a just over a year ago. I landed in the bay and went straight to main. I followed my ears to the beat of the drums and found these guys. The first drum circle I went to I wanted to move – fuck… My body wanted to move so bad but I felt bound (not the good kind)….

I felt restricted in my movement because I felt restricted in how I move in life. I remember being there looking at a woman there – she had her eyes closed, her movement big and fluid – she was moving just for her not for others….

A year later, this music and space is my greatest medicine. Each time I’ve gone I’ve unwrapped another layer of rope… Now… I am boundless – literally no trace of ‘oh what would people think or what does this look like’.

Last night was – an epic session with the guys. My body moves me – through my own joy and pleasure. I dance like no one is watching. What’s beautiful – the energy it brings into the space – if gives others the permission to dance like that too.

What that lady was for me – I am now for others. I will always connect with strangers through their beaming smile and they will say ‘I love your dancing!!’… All I can do is smile back – because I see. I know that they have just received my transmission – a part of them was activated and they (without even knowing) they took off a layer of their binding…
