Rocking Worlds


2nd edition The Secrets of Egypt by Joana Saahirah.jpg

Thanks to every reader who keeps supporting, sharing and sending feed-back on my book. This second edition makes me immensely proud – I find inspiration there every time I open the book, randomly, in search for light. And I was the one who wrote it so imagine how readers must feel! Let´s keep growing together, shall we?

“I observed how the local audiences, a mix of 90% Egyptians, 10% Arabs and other foreigners, reacted to my dance in a much more enthusiastic manner. They started to respond to my dance – to me – in extremely emotional ways. Honesty pays off.

 How ironic! Success was on my hands, more than ever, when I was at my lowest point (from a personal point of view).

 Not enough strength to fight on stage; not enough breath to run and keep the doing machine thriving; not enough heart to pretend to feel whatever I was not feeling. My defenses had literally  vanished – in my life as in my dance. The places where I performed were public – I could be dead at any moment.

 STILLNESS, SILENCE, PAUSE and HONEST MOVEMENT (saying exactly what I NEEDED to say) was all I had to offer. My musicians started to think I was under the effect of drugs due to the state of deep RELAXATION and SURRENDER I was in.

-She used to be so tense and ambitious! What happened to that?

– Life happened.”
