“The Original Heart Dances and Beyond”

With
Saadi Neil Douglas Klotz and
Philip Tansen O’Donohoe

 

In our hearts, we find both surface and depths, breadth and concentration, holding on and letting go. Working with breath, body awareness, sound and feeling to make changes in life has become one of the mainstays of modern psychosomatic therapy. Samuel Lewis was there five decades earlier.

In this 50th year anniversary of the Dances of Universal Peace, we return anew to Murshid’s original dances many of which are rarely shared these days, as well as the heart deepening practices that he says made the Dances possible which he received from Ruth St. Denis. Murshid’s original dances are a treasure of energy work, for heart and body. On this level, they have not been equalled. This way of working with energy has also influenced newer Dances.
