Any time you feel disheartened, dispirited or depressed, ask yourself these questions…
When was the last time I danced?
When was the last time I sang?
When was the last time I was enchanted by a story?
When was the last time I found comfort in silence?
When we stop dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories or finding comfort in silence is when we experience the loss of soul.
Angeles Arrien, a cultural anthropologist, award-winning author, educator, and consultant to many organizations says in the foreword to Gabrielle Roth’s Maps to Ecstasy: The Healing Power of Movement that dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.
No matter what you are going through or what you need to do, use dance, movement, art, creativity, storytelling, crafts, writing, and silence to feel more alive, get clarity and to connect with your soul.
