"Dancing is a way of getting in touch with yourself.
It's an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts.
It deepens the channel of grace, and it's a way of being present in the
moment." - Krishna Das
"Dance is active meditation, when we dance we go beyond thought, beyond
mind, and beyond our own individuality - to become one in the divine
ecstasy of union with the cosmic spirit. This is the essence of the
trance dance experience." - Goa Gil
