Movement Medicine – How to Awaken, Dance and Live Your Dreams

Reviewed by Wendy Stokes

We have seen with delight the paintings of the dancing girls of ancient Egypt and we know that King David danced before the Ark of the Covenant, so it is with acceptance that we take a modern journey of the dance of life that connects us with all life forms.
