Dancing Buddhas is a virtual dance project conceived and designed by Shelley exploring the five phases of awakening.
Sitting with All Life
The Stance Coming to Life
The Beginner Curiously Exploring
All Together Caring
For each phase Carlos Fittante from NYC and myself from San Francisco create a short improvisation, one spontaneous movement based solely on the title. Then Shelley creates a short video vignette of each phase. The two videos are show the different environments and expressions of the same theme.
May you enjoy these vignettes filled with golden nature and know you as the viewer are equally part of the process and deeply valued.
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how it compares with other expressions, or even believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
