The Conscious Dancer
Could the state of the world, our lives, our relationships actually be ideal conditions to help us wake up to a rich, vibrant, loving, creative, and meaningful life?

Ways that help us at the very least to not be crippled by apparent state of things.
This article presents what I know through direct experience as a great way: Conscious Dance.
