Give up to grace.
The ocean takes care of each wave till it gets to shore.
-- Rumi
When I dance I turn toward the teaching of my body as it invites me to move.

At times I get caught up in the effort of dancing. The desire for safety or validation or appreciation takes me out of my Self.

But when I surrender into the entirety of the moment — accepting gravity, facing limitation, giving up all hope of grandeur — grace finds me. The music, the other dancers, my own surprising twists and turns; all seem to say, "just as it is, just as you are, beautiful, enough."

"Dance Medicine is a stimulating, heart-centered mindfulness dance practice where everyone is welcome. We invite you to bring your most authentic selves and to show up free from judgment and any sense of separation. Expressing our humanity with compassion, playfulness and a deep sense of our own divine grace, we experience every moment as it appears. Arriving in the now and celebrating the new, we sustain our creative moments in community."
~ Sandra Ruiz Fitting, Founder of Dance Medicine
