Circle Dance

Tickling the green

A beautiful spring day and sacred circle dancing led by Maureen and Andrea at my neighborhood park…

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul.”
—John Muir

“I know nothing, except what everyone knows if there when Graces dances, I should dance.”—W. H. Auden

“The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.”—Empedocles

“When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open, and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.”—Michael Bridge
