Abstract

This article is an invitation to celebrate and honour the divinity of the dance in each person. The phrase ‘returning to the dancing body’ highlights the inherent vitality, renewal and communion with the divine that may be experienced through dancing and may be experienced over and over as we return to the dance to refresh and cultivate a spiritual self. The physical body engaged holistically in movement with a phenomenological focused awareness appears to have the potential for us to experience our spirituality in new and rejuvenating ways. Honouring the body, movement and the sacred vitality of the dance may broaden our concepts and connections to our selves and the numinous, and allow experiences of unification and vital aliveness to occur.
