Lesson 6 - World Peace
A. Do the sequence of stretching exercises from Part 2.
B. For world peace I like to dance to Beethoven, who has long been my favorite composer. As world peace is such a big project, choose music for dancing that inspires you to express your heart and soul energetically.
C. When you are ready, sit down in place on the floor, or on a cushion, or on a chair. Close your eyes, fold your hands in your lap.
In putting my thinking energy into world peace I like to visualize an inspiring scene in nature.
Choose a scene that uplifts you. Then visualize everyone living there in harmony and peace.
Extend your thoughts beyond the border of the scene to include more and more people, and on to everyone in the world.
Remain in these peaceful thoughts for a few minutes, then take a breath in and out, stand up and stretch.
Dance meditation is poetry in motion and when you are done your session you'll find you are invigorated for the rest of the day.
