Experiences with Devotional Dance

A while back I purchased T. Thorn Coyle‘s Devotional Dance DVD so I could start working through Evolutionary Witchcraft and actually know what the heck I was doing. (I can’t learn dance moves from a book. I just can’t.)

It arrived right before I left for Orlando, so I promised myself I’d start with dancing in the morning as soon as I got back. I got back and my back went kaplooey, so now I’ve been bedridden for over a month, thinking I wish I could do those dances.

Well now I can!

That’s right. I’m finally feeling well enough to do some devotional dances in the morning.

I decided to start with the Triple Soul: Sticky One, Shining Body, and Sacred Dove. I did the Sticky One dance for the full time Thorn did on the DVD, but for Shining Body and Sacred Dove I had to stop a little earlier, as I was getting winded.

The result: I feel awesome.

See?

I’m freaking glowing. You can’t even see my acne. (Which apparently is supposed to stop with high school, but my body never got that memo.)

There’s a small pain in my back, but it’s nothing. I haven’t even taken a percoset or a muscle relaxant today, and already I feel like I could conquer the world.

I feel intimately connected to my body (Sticky One), very clear-headed (Shining Body), and thrumming with the life of the universe (Sacred Dove). This is the best I’ve felt in over a month.

Scratch that. Several months.

I have a rehearsal at 2pm today, and I actually feel confident about it. About my body doing what I need it to do, when I need it to do it.

I think this means the verdict on Devotional Dance — just as something to do that I enjoy, nevermind the awesome connectedness to all life that I feel — is GREAT SUCCESS.

  1. Congrats and yes, you glow. I love that pic!
    I never got around to do the dances, but I should take up Qi Gong again. Everything that helps moving the energy in the body makes one feel a lot better. :)

    1. Aww, thank you!
      It’s amazing how a little activity can make you feel so awesome. I’m thinking of taking up yoga at some point, when I’m more healed. (Don’t want to push things too far, too fast, after all.)

  2. What a great photo of you! I have recently gotten that book but have only glanced at the images of the dances- they look very interesting! Might have to get that dvd eventually. And yes my body never got the acne memo either- nearly 28 and still getting breakouts, lol.

    1. I really like the book. I recommend reading through most of it first, and then doing daily practice (that’s the part I’m working on now).

      If you find the daily practice useful, you’ll probably find the DVD useful. In my not-so-humble opinion. ;)

  3. Hi Katje! I know this is an old post of yours, but I would love to know if you’re still practicing the dances, and how they’ve benefited you. I’m so grateful to have found your amazing, inspirational blog! Many blessings and I hope to see more updates from you! <3
