  1. Sounds like the universe is sending you a message. I hope you decide to listen and perhaps learn to dance or choreograph or maybe just find some way to make dance an integral part of your life. I know I wish I could do that.

  2. I loved this post. Dancing really creates a feeling like no other when you are able to just let go and embrace it. Admittedly, my only “knowledge” of the bhangra comes from one episode of Dancing With the Stars, but it looked pretty awesome! I remember my own experience being taught salsa and merengue at a club in Costa Rica and although I’m sure I looked like the awkward white woman that I also am, it’s easily one of the most incredible memories of my time there.

  3. Dancing is theraputic to everyone whether you can dance or not. Old or young. Sadly there are not the opportunities for the older set and its a shame. I go clubbing with my daughters every now and again because you just can’t beat a good old ‘boogie’!

  4. From you picture, it looks like you had an awesome time! I bet your instructor will make it to the 200th Art of Living courses to teach, what do you think?

  5. Sometime I think about the days when I would go out dancing for what seemed like hours. I miss those days. They were in the 80’s when the music was absolutely fabulous. The kids today don’t know what they’re missing. I was in better humor and in better shape in those days. I wish I could go back.

  6. I remember back in the 90’s going to a local night cafe when they had Samba Night. If you showed up early, an instructor would briefly instruct you in the steps. Not only was it so much fun, but I loved the fact that it brought together so many classes of people, so many distinct ages, and nationalities. Dance is democratic. Anyone can do it and no one can stop you. Ive even seen people in wheelchairs and special needs kids have a ball.

  7. Sufism sounds interesting … As it is the Spiritiual side
    Sounds a journey the art of living course.. Pretty cool.. You like pakistan?

  8. Just stumbled across you, and was intrigued by your title. You seem quite the inspiration, slim going to keep reading you if that’s okay? X

  9. Love your description of Sufi movement and your discovery of the joy of dance! Dance is a huge part of my life and my blog too! This post was inspiring. keep up the great work! I will love hearing about your adventures. 🙂

  10. What a great post. I’ve worked for a few dance companies in the past and it is such a liberating experience. Try and check out my posts on travelling if you get the chance

  11. Just dropping you a line as I was first curious about if ‘the Art of Living’ on your title meant the Art of Living so I read on… finding someone on the internet who did the same course and know about this amazing course is special to me. Keep dancing and living 🙂

  12. Dancing is a great way to center yourself, also to be in touch with your own self when you move in a way that feels right with you, you’re exercising a part of your brain that controls a higher part of you to help you through life, I hope you consistently continue to do this! wish you the very best!

  13. Awesome 🙂
    As a dancer (albeit a Morris Dancer) who has only recently discovered dancing it would say dance at every opportunity…even on your own, even in the kitchen…even to the soundcheck at a friends wedding…
    Just Dance 🙂

  14. I love this posts sentiment and the picture is awesome! Dancing is so healing. You have inspired me to dance as part of my yoga practice today. I did a whole dance practice last year and it was so liberating to just move and be free~~ so many beautiful wishes for you on your amazing journey!

  15. Love this. I have read so much about Sufism and i love their culture so much! And i love dancing so you have managed to put a big smile on my face! 🙂 Stay beautiful!
