Conscious Tidbits – Shamanic Wisdom

“In many Shamanic Societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited or depressed, they would ask one of four questions:

When did you stop dancing?

When did you stop singing?

When did you stop being enchanted by stories?

When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?”

Gabrielle Roth died last fall at the age of 71. She changed the face of dance while she was here. And last night, at a Red Tent Wild Woman ceremony, I danced with Gabrielle’s 5 Rhythms;

Flowing
Staccato
Chaos
Lyrical
Stillness

And the dance changed me.  

Thank you, Gabrielle. You will be missed here.
I see you now, out beyond, happily dancing among the stars…
