    “Paradise is pictured by every teacher as a place where there is music and dance. Music itself is dance” —Hazrat Inayat Khan

    BALANCE & INTEGRITY IN THE TIME OF CHAOS:

    FINDING WISDOM IN THE BODY-HOUSE with ZULEIKHA

And this brings a kind of relief and a quality of goodness.

    Listening of Pure Movement I began my studies of movement arts with some ballet and a lot of free movement, as a child. I studied western classical music all of my life, and continued in the study of contemporary movement. I also trained in schools of movement and music from Asian traditions, where the mover is both a musician in movement and a devotee of awareness.
