“When joy does come, it should be celebrated, although many of us are embarrassed by spontaneous bursts of elation. It’s not that we think there is something wrong with being joyful, but that we have a notion it’s not cool or sophisticated to be too joyful, or too openly emotional. We’re often as uncomfortable about having hearts as we are about having bodies.” GABRIELLE ROTH The joy of dancing. The joy of being alive. The […]

“You can’t fake the aftermath of an experience if you haven’t had the experience, and lyrical is the aftermath of chaos. Lyrical is the process of delightenment.” GABRIELLE ROTH   I pray to the Lyrical Rhythm to lift me up from the swamp of my personal chaos where I hold a VIP box, and in which I still get lost although I know it so well. It is as if I was born with it, […]

“So the body is where the dancing path to wholeness must begin.  Only when you truly inhabit your body can you begin the healing journey.” GABRIELLE ROTH   Dance was always for me the fastest route to that place where I feel I have lost myself and actually I found my true nature. From teenage years, this was a way for me to completely surrender to something else and stop being a victim of my […]

“Letting go of the known and receiving the unknown, we can sense new possibilities. When we expect change, life rarely disappoints us. In the dance we can get to know ourselves well enough to be aware of the judgments, expectations, and attachments that inevitably get in our way.” GABRIELLE ROTH   After a lovely and intense passage from the Old Year into the New, at our Tribal Dance workshop, I dove deep into my winter […]

“There is a dance only you can do, that exists only in you, here and now, always changing, always true. Are you willing to listen with fascination? If you are it will deliver you unto the self you have always dreamed you could be. This is a promise.” GABRIELLE ROTH   One thing that Flowing is teaching me is how to follow our own path by letting our own feet create that very path by […]

  “You are  a wave of energy, a partner in the cosmic dance, a spark of the consuming fire that lights and moves all things, surrendered to the force of life pulsing through you.” GABRIELLE ROTH   I want to acknowledge this invisible force that brings us together on each class or workshop, the mysterious thread that connect us in the right place and in the right moment. How did I find you, how did you […]

“The word comes from the Greek word “chaos”, meaning empty space or abyss. Most of us are afraid of emptiness because we consider it a vacuum, a negative force. In reality it is a positive space, loaded with potential, free of all strictures and structures of the ordinary world.” GABRIELLE ROTH   I have always felt good in this autumn month, perhaps because it was the time of my coming into this body and this […]

“Wolves find the balance between separateness and unity. Even the lone wolf is part of the pack. Instead, we tend to seek one or the other, making individuality and community into an either or proposition. Wolf knows he is both. For us humans, this wisdom is lost early on, as soon as the ego makes its debut….When you know your place in the pack, you too, can sit back, relax and howl at the moon.” GABRIELLE […]

“When you dance, you experience God, that fierce force, the energy that is universe. Its power, its infinite wisdom, become part of you. In these moments, I don’t think, I know that there is something beautiful and good and loving underpinning everyone and everything. That’s not to say that dancing on this earth isn’t going to cause us its own kind of pain. As we move in the Mystery, we have to offer all of […]

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for few minutes, including you.” Anne Lamott   For me August and January are THE months when I can switch off the biggest number of days in a row. Sometimes it is only this longer break, longer state of stillness and being that has an effect on the hardwired stress and being tired from myself, from automatic actions and words as well as the daily addictions that successfully manage […]
