RELEASE--Two Hands Dancing

RELEASE. (Art by Hallelujah Truth)
Hallelujah for moving and creating grace from the mundane to the mysterious! Our creativity can be found in movement in going to that deeper fuller place in ourselves. In this movement, this act of making something from breath and from one hand (or two hands) moving, comes RELEASE.

This morning, I woke to my daily creative practice to express the outcome from my participation during last night’s online dance chapel with Cynthnia Winton-Henry.

Dancing with my hands….

One hand moves jerky, slow, fingers tense—contorted. This is my chaos, my gargoyle (thanks Cynthia for the word “gargoyle”).

The other hand, like a bird, fingers lax, smoothly rides the currents above, hovering a witness to my chaos. This is my grace.

Two externalized emotions experienced through the physicality of two hands moving—dancing.

At the core of these two hands is my breath and beating heart. They are the music for this dance.

My hands are witnessed by all of me, eyes, mind, heart, and gut…. I observe a shift in feeling. My hands court one another, like birds in a mating ritual. Breathe in. Breathe out (infinite X’s).


That’s Coffee With Hallelujah! Soul Blog with me! What dance will you create for yourself today? Let’s create grace for ourselves and others from the mundane to the mysterious.

GRATITUDE: It is with deep appreciation that I acknowledge Cynthia Winton-Henry’s Monday night Dance Chapel. Last night, we played with the dance of chaos and release—one hand dances jerky and smoothe…play with chaos. We found ways through movement together (yes online) to open the space to feel the chaos—a deeper place, which allowed our bodies to have fullness.
