Exploring dance from the rural villages of Africa to the stages of Lincoln Center, Judith Lynne Hanna shows that it is as human to dance as it is to learn, to build, or to fight. Dance is human thought and feeling expressed through the body: it is at once organized physical movement, language, and a system of rules appropriate in different social situations. Hanna offers a theory of dance, drawing on work in anthropology, semiotics, sociology, communications, folklore, political science, religion, and psychology as well as the visual and performing arts. A new preface provides commentary on recent developments in dance research and an updated bibliography.

Dance, Human Rights, and Social Justice: Dignity in Motion presents a wide-ranging compilation of essays, spanning more than 15 countries. Organized in four parts, the articles examine the regulation and exploitation of dancers and dance activity by government and authoritative groups, including abusive treatment of dancers within the dance profession; choreography involving human rights as a central theme; the engagement of dance as a means of healing victims of human rights abuses; and national and local social/political movements in which dance plays a powerful role in helping people fight oppression. These groundbreaking papers_both detailed scholarship and riveting personal accounts_encompass a broad spectrum of issues, from slavery and the Holocaust to the Bosnian and Rwandan genocides to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; from First Amendment cases and the AIDS epidemic to discrimination resulting from age, gender, race, and disability. A range of academics, choreographers, dancers, and dance/movement therapists draw connections between refugee camp, courtroom, theater, rehearsal studio, and university classroom.

The Human Experience is the Dance of Heaven and Earth is a book about awakening - but it is not your typical book on the subject. Rather than only tell about the process of awakening it also ‘shows’ the process through the inclusion of many practical daily-life examples. Although the realization of who we are is not a process, the integration of this realization is. Some teachings shy away from the term ‘process’ altogether and other teachings present the process as a self-improvement endeavor - this book does neither. When we glimpse peace or wholeness or whatever term we happen to use there is a process of integrating this understanding that unfolds. But this is not a process of improving who we are. It is a process of seeing through who we are not and more fully relaxing into who we already are. So many people are now in various stages of awakening. Some have had glimpses of truth but don’t trust them and others have had glimpses they trust but become confused when conditioned habits pull them. The Human Experience does not leave the readers to fend for themselves. We are here not only to realize the truth of who we are but to be free enough to actually live it. As our understanding integrates more fully into what we sense and how we express ourselves, this inner harmony then moves out into the world. And when more and more of us come to know and live this harmony, world peace cannot help but unfold.

Within intellectual paradigms that privilege mind over matter, dance has long appeared as a marginal, derivative, or primitive art. Drawing support from theorists and artists who embrace matter as dynamic and agential, this book offers a visionary definition of dance that illuminates its constitutive work in the ongoing evolution of human persons. Why We Dance introduces a philosophy of bodily becoming that posits bodily movement as the source and telos of human life. Within this philosophy, dance appears as an activity that humans evolved to do as the enabling condition of their best bodily becoming. Weaving theoretical reflection with accounts of lived experience, this book positions dance as a catalyst in the development of human consciousness, compassion, ritual proclivity, and ecological adaptability. Aligning with trends in new materialism, affect theory, and feminist philosophy, as well as advances in dance and religious studies, this work reveals the vital role dance can play in reversing the trajectory of ecological self-destruction along which human civilization is racing.

I Only Wanted to Dance

I ONLY WANTED TO DANCE There I am. A dazzling smile, looking straight at the camera. A child known for having social skills, but all I remember is discomfort. I played the part, though, in that strange coalition of people. At least for a while. When I found a way to relax, I finally gave up the charade. Blindly pursuing the strongest impulse I had ever felt. The emotional relief was immeasurable. Now, I needed no-one. Even life-threatening consequences were obscured by the buzz. Desperately, I tried to silence the nagging about the harm I caused. Detached, chemically mind-altered, I left the realm of the humane. Was I sick? I simply know this - no healthy human being would do what I did. This is a tale of miraculously cheating Death and, Dear Reader, of what happened when I had managed that. Then I tell of the beginnings of making things right in my world. ------- This personal, funny and frightening memoir is about Lotten's successful path away from decades of addiction and on to recovery. You may know someone who is suffering from addiction. Or maybe it is you? In any case, if you are searching for a way out - read this book. PRAISE FOR "I Only Wanted to Dance" "This book is, first and foremost, very important as it deals with many aspects of addiction. It tells an engaging true story of a tough fight battling this disease, its many faces and its deceitful progression. But, it is also a book about awakening, surrendering and finding a way out. Filled with empathy and educational importance. Wonderfully written and beautifully executed. Peter Nilsson BSc Medical Biology and Chemistry" "This is a strong narrative that should be of interest to most people. A book that even youngsters ought to read, so that they never become seduced by romanticized descriptions of narcotics or alcohol. (Citation from booklet #12121088) Pia Holmstrom, Reader, BTJ, the Swedish Library Service" "Lotten's book "I Only Wanted to Dance" is an honest and well-written book about the progression of addiction and, most of all, about the painful path into a balanced recovery. Lotten gives life to the addicted parent's role and also portrays her love for her child. The narrative ought to be of solace to other parents and of benefit to social workers in search of solutions to help the children of addicts. The book moved me deeply, I cried about some and was gladdened by the others of the phases in Lotten's life. Everyone who comes into contact with addiction, whether within the family or in a professional capacity, has something to learn from Lotten's story. The book is all the more readable thanks to its strong narrative style and vivid language. Thank you, Lotten, for having the courage to share your and your child's life with us. Best regards to you both! Eva Edstedt, Former Manager at Malin's Minne""

This is the sixth printing of a Joyously inspirational book has been called "one of the truly transformational works of our time." Author Robert Burney has been referred to as "a metaphysical Stephen Hawking" - and his work has been compared to John Bradshaw's "except much more spiritual" and described as "taking inner child healing to a new level." In Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls he combines Twelve Step Recovery Principles, Ancient (and New Age) Metaphysical Truth, and Native American Spirituality with quantum physics and molecular biology in sharing a perspective of the human experience that can lead to a life-changing Spiritual Awakening by reminding you of who you Truly are, and why you are here in human body at this very special time in human history. Some feedback about The Dance of Wounded Souls: "I just read your wonderful book, thank you for writing it. I have been a spiritual teacher since childhood, however, your book let me organize my thoughts a new way, a new perspective. I now have a much deeper understanding and am still learning from it. Dance, is one of the truly transformational works of our time." "When I found your book, I found myself." "I am a 52 year old psychotherapist and have struggled with codependency all my life. Up until tonight I have been disappointed in the literature and treatment of codependency. Your work is brilliant! I can't find words to express my appreciation with the depth I am feeling." "I finished your book, you are a rock star. Already had a friend order it. She wanted to borrow mine and I told her I'd sooner give her my hand." "I truly believe that I have made more progress on a personal level in the few weeks I have had Robert's book than in the preceding eight plus years when I first found out what codependency was." "After years of analysis and reading many self help books on other subjects to try to find out the answers about my struggles in my life, I had always been under the impression that the subject of codependency was a term referring to people who enable alcoholics or drug dependent people, so I never even thought to read up on it. Now, after reading your writings, a miraculous door of insight has opened up for me, and many pieces of the puzzle are finally falling into place" "I can't thank you enough for the very profound spiritual healing your book has provided to me. I cannot express in words that which I feel as a result of having truly "heard" your message of self-love and spiritual awakening. Your message has forever changed my path in this lifetime. Thank you so much for sharing your perceptions and experiences in your book." "I have read and studied many authors on this healing journey of mine but you really relate to all of my issues like no one else. I have read over 300 books in the past few years but you explain everything in simple but yet so enlightening truths. God bless you and you are making a difference to many. Oprah needs to read your work." "I love the fact that you are able to clearly bridge and tie in Christian teachings and (so-called) New Age philosophies in a clear and concise way for so many to hear at the same time." "Thank you Mr. Burney. Your book saved me from the depths of my despair, and my life has new direction and purpose now. I can never thank you enough." "I've read your book at least 20 times Your a brilliant & inspiring writer. You have made a great difference in my outlook." "Just finished your, it's truly an amazing act of grace when the right information comes at just the right time. Thank you for writing this book! "Thank You for sharing your journey through your work. "Dance of The Wounded Souls" is a spiritual masterpiece." "Before I discovered your book I was in a very dark place emotionally, so much so that i really thought I was never going to come through it, I was drinking every night and was so ill i couldn't even move from the house. . . . thank god i found you
