shadow side



This was a second dance practice today - this ancient maple tree seemed to be calling to dance with it's shadow side. Loved the opportunity to use the shadows cast from the tree as a means of dancing more spontaneously on the earth's moist soil...



Feeling grateful for sharing this earth-world with such ancient, inspiring beings that cast such magnificent shadows... it is an honor to dance with their shadow-side...

“Every being exists in intimate relation with other beings and in constant exchange of gifts with each other. But this relationship is beyond pragmatic use. It is rather a mutual sharing of existence in the grand venture of the universe itself.”

Thomas Berry
