* Dancing Tara on the water
Sacred dance on the water
This past June 15 2013 was the Globalwaterdances day where many dancers and choreographers around the world offered their dances for the water in our planet.
Last time I was part of this event in New York at the Hudson River,
This time I was in my native country Spain with some of my yoga students from New York offering yoga and a sightseeing week at the beautiful city of Barcelona and the lovely town of Sitges. This is a trip we had talked about for years and finally it became reality. We had a wonderful time, we lived in a house facing the Mediterranean sea where we could do our yoga practice in the morning and meditation at night, and where we enjoyed our food and chats at the warmth of latest days of spring.
The day of the Globalwaterdances I decided to offer my grain of sand, (or drop of water) offering the Tara dance on the water. On the top of the roof at the house there was a pool facing the sea. So when the Tara dancers from Barcelona came to Sitges we danced the all dance in the water and it was a beautiful special experience. Afterwards when the New Yorkers came back from an exciting day of sightseeing, Catalans and New Yorkers we offered the dance again altogether at one of the roofs.
The fact that we could experience the water while we were dancing and see the sea while dancing made me feel really connected to the water feeling a sense of transmitting a very positive vibration thru our movements and chants. There rest of the summer I did offer the Tara dance at different places also in the water and will continue to do so now until gets chilly!
