dancing/not dancing

Extrapolating on Lisa's exercise I taught a class today that was an experiment on whether we could dance by not doing anything.

I gave a painfully difficult exercise of imagining the touch of our minds on 2 points on our body and a third point in space. Then, just observing the field as defined by these three points and being available to the exit from this field.

Miraculously, after almost two hours of people lying around in heaps on the floor (and a little nervousness on my part), they got to their feet and a most incredible dance occurred in the room.

I am excited by this.

I'm so excited by your experiments and discoveries both in dance and in narrative.
