The power of Dancing

The Witch of Portabello

This is the book I am currently reading. The main character in this book meets a fellow who has a dance medatation group who get their souls going by dancing to drum rythems. I am now half way in and she has found a way to channel a higher being from dancing out of rythem. Now there are many other interesting twists and turns in this book as Paulo Coelho is a complex and compelling writer however this is the plot I am currently wanting to address.

It got me thinking about when I was younger and went dancing at the bar in Lake Louise at least twice a week. I remember that I laughed quite a bit more back then. I was in much better shape in those days. Even thought it came along with debauchery and very little sleep I managed to have loads of energy throughout the day. The snow didn’t bother me. We danced in it. The rain was a wonderful rhythm to move to.

I don’t know it could be due to youth, or the mountian air but I am thinking there might be something to this whole idea that dancing connects you to your soul and thus happiness.

So in the next month I am going to dance at least 20 minutes a day. Just to see what happens.
