Last Month's Dance ~ "Loving Kindness"

Loving-kindness intended, expressed, embodied, received, returned, & reverberating.   Alhumdulillah & Ya Shakur!  Sukaynah
  I actually pulled off the dulcimer music interlude! I was so relaxed from the meditative atmosphere. These folks are such a loving community, that I’m really going
to miss them this summer. Clare
Love is a verb & you gracefully demonstrated this love during our dance this past weekend.  The community that dance creates is the cherry on the top. Thank you for doing your work in the world, DiAnahita.        Love, Samantha
You are my inspiration for bringing medium & large groups together on so many levels at once. My head is at your feet.   I would be so lucky to find myself at your door once more.  Robin Mallor    (Dance Leader in Michigan)
In the evening at the May dance,
we may do Zikr in the Gazebo
If you are an amateur Musician
interested in playing for our dances, please offer, & attend a practice, usually a couple of hours before the dance.
Needed for the May Dance!  Amateur with phone or camera to take group, dancing, &/or candid shots. 
Flowering Heart Zikr

La illaha il Allahu

What a unique, inclusive, blessed experience Saturday was for me.  I enjoyed being with that loving group of people.  Everyone there was open, loving & real. Thank you for using your presence, leadership & beautiful spirit to create that wonderful, loving space.  This was my introduction to a whole group of people I have never tuned in to. I am glad I “stretched” myself with a new experience at your invitation!  Love, Sandra

Thanks for the great photos (Patrick) & wonderful dance.   I especially enjoyed the Jewish-inspired one Baruch Hu, which felt very powerful. Love & blessings,Steve

Thank you again for all that you
do to keep the dances alive and flourishing  in  northern Florida.
You even bring new dances into
the world. That is such a great blessing!  Patrick

Hearts Synchronize
during Zikr

& the parietal lobe - which integrates  experience  into
a sense  of  "self"  becomes quiescent,  resulting in self  dissolving  into  unity awareness.
