La danza tradicional guerrera como camino espiritual

Raúl Tortolero-Medicina Tradicional | Si nuestros antepasados crearon la danza, no sólo fue por un afán artístico estético, sino como una sabia herramienta de "unificación de la conciencia", como un puente entre el hombre y la comunidad, la naturaleza, el cosmos y Dios. No sólo es asunto de belleza, si no de supervivencia, de sabiduría y celebración de la vida. Así es como la integridad, la salud y el desarrollo espiritual son conservados y fomentados.

The report stated that Howard was “visibly shocked” by the unexpected encounter, which obviously was intended to deliver a clear message; the Indonesian President is not known for taking early morning walks, we can therefore conclude that his gesture was calculated. more...  0 Comments

Getting Wet with Mermaids and Dykes

Amy Wolf | On any summer weekend at Coney Island, it will smell like hot-dogs, but at the Mermaid Parade, it’s a bigger sausage-fest then usual. Persistent photographers jockeyed for the best shots in the waiting area before the parade. Here they swarmed around sultry sea goddesses and tripped over tails of those who didn’t peek their interest.
