Opening 2019 with the climbing of NEW mountains

Joana Saahirah Ilhas Dornes

Opening 2019 with open arms and heart

Flying into 2019 with the Passion and the Love I´ve always carried in my heart, a renewed sense of purpose and hope.

Here´s what they rarely tell us: evolution takes work; growth can be painful; letting go of limiting beliefs, wounds, old ghosts can be a never-ending battle but, YES, we can do it. If we genuinely want to.

I´ve never sat in my comfort zone – whenever I reach the top of one mountain, I start looking for a new mountain to climb. It´s the climbing, not the arrival, that builds our character.

From Portugal, my homeland where I was safe and comfortable, to Egypt where I spent 8 years building my career and myself in the midst of unimaginable challenges and blessings; from Egypt to the whole World where I´ve been traveling as an invited artist to perform, teach, and lecture on Egyptian Dance, Music, and Culture; from the World to wherever I dream.

Along the way, I´ve written an endless amount of articles for highly respected maganizes and newspapers; I´ve written and published my first book – The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond” (follow link to get your own copy: http://www.lulu.com/shop/http://www.lulu.com/shop/joana-saahirah/the-secrets-of-egypt-dance-life-beyond-2nd-edition/paperback/product-23143198.html?fbclid=IwAR2Jfl0G_J0QIVEQzejQdSkQ8PzO7v0GkKDNpIOy0-V7VjOmA36OzSVmFlA ); I´ve created a pioneering school – Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School -, I´m about to publish my second book – Behind the Curtain – and I´m already working on my third book.  A brand new, upgraded, platform for Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School will soon be released. Stay tuned at this blog or ask to join our dance community via email (send email to dancemagica@gmail.com)

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is is just a little sample of how much I´ve lived, dreamed and materialized and how much I´m doing in the present. I hope it inspires you to turn your Wish List* into a Dreams Accomplished List.

wink-happy-16Hint: I have no intention to stop growing and making IT happen.

In 2019, more than in any other year, I thrive for new mountains – the most unexplored, frightening, amazing mountains; the ones that will ultimately bring me closer to my truest self. I hope YOU´re brave enough to do the same.

Happy climbing, my friends!

Joana Saahirah Fan Page – Join & Share

Shining in New Zealand Show.jpgHere are some of the goals of my work which happen to coincide with the purpose of my life

Making sure that what I do corresponds to what I (passionately) love. Connecting the dots. Building bridges where positive & constructive information can be shared and amplified. Empowering other people – my students, co-workers, audience members, supporters and strangers – as much as I empower myself.

I do it everywhere – on my work Shows, Workshops and Lectures around the world; on my On Line Private Courses; on the texts I write for several publications; on my first published book – “The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond” – and upcoming ones. In life as well.

If you´d like to be part of this movement, make sure you visit, follow and like – if you like it – Joana Saahirah of Cairo Fan Page on Facebook. Another sacred space where only goodness is cultivated:

lovemypage.JPGI love to step – dance – on sacred grounds. May those be the stages, rooms, gardens, churches, synagogues, mosques, gutters I walk through. Every space can be a worshipping space.

This is why I love my Joana Saahirah of Cairo Fan Page and I ain´t afraid of saying it out loud: I LOVE MY FAN PAGE! There; I´ve said it. If I cannot openly love myself and the things I do, who will?

I´m proud of this sacred space not only because it´s composed of pieces of me – my work, inspirations, thoughts, questions, passions – but because it´s truly inspiring and thought(action) provoking, the kind of fan page – sacred space – I´d like to follow.

Let me keep modesty ashore – no time for bullshit or false pretenses.

-Life´s short, dah´ling!
