Donna Goddard, Dance: A Spiritual Affair

Donna Goddard
“Eventually, the master of dance arrives at the still point. Movement and thought, body and mind, are so refined and intentioned that everything moves from the calm still point. It is not to say that the movement is calm. It may be explosive, violent, and dramatic. However, the intention is calmly, deliberately focused. It is not altered by the ups and downs, the fluctuations, of the internal or external environment. The still point is thus never lost. The movement is part of the still. The still is part of the movement. The dancer can be still and still dance. He or she can move and still be still.”
Donna Goddard, Dance: A Spiritual Affair

Donna Goddard
“Dancing with a partner becomes a consensual sharing of energy where the two individuals can ideally take their cue from the tremendous flowing Movement beyond themselves.”
Donna Goddard, The Love of Being Loving
