Take a deep breath, let it out with a sigh.
Rabbi Schlomo Carlebach quote

“If I were the Chief Rabbi of Israel, I would pass a law making it compulsory for everyone to go out on the streets and dance at least twice a week. Yeah, it’s wonderful when a Jew has a great head and a remarkable brain, but gevalt! Where are the feet?”

Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, What’s Next, p. 17. Thanks to Sara Nesson, Interfaith Minister.

Find your feet, there you are.

Foot Tappin’ Practice

At your desk? Put on earphones and tap your feet. A little tappin’ is all it takes to invoke easy focus and amusement. Take a break. Join the dancing cockatoo and gecko. If they can tap, so can you.

Body Wisdom
. Remember: to change your life, change your practice.
. Pay attention to your sole-power.
. Where your feet are, there you are.
. Don’t be misled by those fancy moves in your head.
. Sole is where it’s at.

Raise A Hand in Blessing

When we dance hand to hand we often practice opening the space between us. We can often feel that connection even when we aren’t right together.
 Raise a hand in blessing. Turn in a full circle (or not) and know that others are sending blessings to you too.

Listen to “Love Opens” by Mary Grigolia

Love opens up our bodies
Love opens up our spirits
Love opens up our hearts
We’re seeds of love.

Deep Breath, Let it out with a Sigh…

  1. I was thinking about how I’d like to share something that happened to me today, but didn’t know who to share it with. It involved crows. Then, I clicked on this, and there was the crow image. Ok, then!

    This morning, I was waked up by a dream about moving crows along in the water by pushing the water near them with a notebook. When I woke up, I went to tutor, at a coffee house. During the lesson, I was holding my notebook, and drinking water, and a crow landed on the table. The world just seems to work in some enfolded way that I love.
