Synopsis by Kathryn Tamms
Ecstatic dance is an ancient spiritual practice based on body movements which had been all but forgotten in modern times until a teacher at the Esalen Institute began experimenting with it 35 years ago. That teacher, Gabrielle Roth, is recognized worldwide today for helping to re-create what the New York Post has called a "map for the entire creative process." In the second video in her three-volume "Wave" series, Roth introduces us to the "Inner Wave," a journey through meditative trance dance to the stillpoint within ourselves, as we seek to calm both mind and body and create peace in our lives.
