WHEN we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence we experience the loss of soul, many shamanic societies say.
“Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence, Gabrielle Roth attests, “are the four universal healing salves.”
For Roth physical movement, according to an Huffpost article, “is key to unlocking the spirit.”
She was an incredibly influential teacher of meditative dance and the creator of the 5Rhythms movement practice.”
“Roth dedicated her life, heart and soul to exploring how to engage her spirit and creativity through dance and movement — and helping others to do the same. The effect of her influence is palpable.”
“Dance is the fastest, most direct route to the truth,” she claimed. It is notable in this regard that two of the most powerful ancient gods, Krishna and Shiva, are so often depicted as dancing, and Krishna additionally is shown at the same time playing the flute.
