Dance Meditation Lesson on Personal Peace
Lesson 4 - Personal Peace
A. Do the sequence of stretching exercises in Part 2.
B. Choose a piece of music that makes you feel peaceful. Because you are concentrating on peace make your dance movements flow easily one to the next rather than jerky or jumping up and down. Waltz rhythms are good choices for maintaining or regaining peace.
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, and visualize a beautiful peaceful garden scene in front of you.
Now see yourself walking along a pathway through the lush scenery. As you walk along this pathway in nature for as long as you like feel your own natural peace returning.
In your mind go sit on a convenient bench. To end your period of reflection open your eyes, take a breath in and out, stand up and stretch.
Now, who would have ever thought I'd be recommending a song that is sung by Sting and co-written by Sting and his guitarist, Dominic Miller, to use for your dance meditation, but I am. Read about it here.
