Ecstatic – The Healing Power of Dance!
Dancing to uplifting music is one of the most healing activities I do for myself. Whenever I am stuck, depressed, emotional, tired or stressed out, a little dance does me so much good. Despite this love of dance my past music has been more about the inner dance, a quiet space to be still and create a healing sanctuary. I have always also heard a more intense upbeat music inside but I had been unable to bring it to fruition. This is mainly due to ongoing health issues, which mean I don’t have as much energy to express this side of myself, or be in and tour with a band. This means I generally create my music myself, in my own space, at my own pace. Over the years as I created my other albums I have also been picking away at this music, trying to manifest what I wanted to dance to. With the help of these wonderful musicians and producers and a lot of perseverance I have finally been able to bring this music into the light of day. May it help you move through life with more lightness and joy. So let’s shake off our demons and let the light shine through!
