Messages from The Womb


Messages from The Womb PromoPay attention!
 Masters, Inspiration and Revelation are everywhere, especially where you least expect them.

The project “Messages from The Womb”, a series of short videos/lectures filmed at my new home (Retreat; Paradise) are an example of great things that come from simple, apparently insignificant, circumstances. Some trains hide under the wings of baby butterflies.

Me and my friend Ana were having coffee, at sunset, speaking about life, dreams and the beauty of the sky falling asleep in front of us. The subject of Egyptian Oriental Dance as an art form, a sacred language and a reeducation tool for the human being fell on our table. I started talking about it as I do inside my head, during my private on line courses and in my workshops around the world. Every word flowed as naturally as a breath of air from my mouth.

-I wish I had a camera with me. We should record what you´re saying.- My friend told me, half frustrated, half fascinated.

Really? – I asked, surprised. – What I´m saying is not a big deal. Everybody knows about it.

-You´re mistaken. Not everybody knows about it. In fact, I´ve never heard it. You should get these things recorded.

She was serious. So serious that I took her advice to heart but, mostly, to action. I turned the camera on and filmed the first Message from The Womb with a theme inspired by a conflict between dancers, something that had been born from a polemic caused by one of my videos about Tarab and The Feminine Principle (see link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md9pdeS6Q7Y).

Can you see the magical net?

From the moment I started, the project didn´t stop growing. It has turned into a series of lectures/videos which have been supported, shared and cherished by dancers – and non dancers – from all over the world. It may become a book (the introduction is already written). Who knows which other fruits may fall from this Tree. All I know is that I take a lift whenever I see it. After taking it, I ride the wave and do my best with integrity, courage and audacity. The rest is in God´s hands.
