Tony who regularly attends the workshop has recently written:
At the age of sixty I decided I needed to get out and try new things before it got too late. Among these new things was discovering Biodanza Days run by Jill Goodwin at a charming village hall in the beautiful Quantock Hills in Somerset, on my first day of dancing I was very nervous I was sure I was going to make a complete fool of myself as I had never danced before and I assumed I had two left feet, gulp, but I was warmly welcomed and it did not take long to feel right at home with these lovely people. It is so easy to dance with no steps to learn and is just such a joyful experience and over the last year it has become a deeply moving and life enhancing/affirming rewarding practice. I just love it and have had many wonderful experiences from very soft and gentle that simply can not be put into words, but life changing and some are very powerful ones.
At the last but one dance we had just finished a vigorous dance and were slowly walking to self regulate, I watched one of our dancers come to a halt in front of a window bathed in sunlight she appeared to me as a picture of peace and contentment in that moment. I came to realise that age, gender, appearance does not matter in the least because here was a beautiful shining soul and I was deeply overcome, humbled and delighted to realise I was in a room full of shining souls. Bliss
I now know this is something that all humans have and that Biodanza can lead us to connect on such a deep and wonderful way, if only we could get the whole world to dance Biodanza, the world would be a much better place for all of us and all its life.
