By Roland

I sometimes imagine that, as a child, I was chosen to participate in the famous Stanford Marshmallow Experiment designed to test a personís ability to defer gratification. In this experiment a group of four-year-old children were each give one marshmallow, but were promised that they could have two marshmallows on condition that he or she wait twenty minutes, before eating the first marshmallow. Some children were able to wait the twenty minutes, and some were unable to wait.

Return to Africa
By Susannah

Shamantics
By Ya'Acov

Well, I'm here to report that she kept her promise!

Coaching for Dance and Change
By Caroline Carey

As an ecstatic dancer I've spent my last 17 years visiting workshops, classes and events delving deeper and deeper into this mysterious dance practice that is thousands of years old and spent my time re-connecting to that part of my history and ancestry.
