Dance is a Path to the Spirit Within


Dancer #2  copy

Although religion can be blamed for much of the violence in the world, even terrorism, religion can also be a force for healing and reconciliation. I took this photo in 2007 at the Acco Theatre in Israel. In this photo two women, one Jewish/Israeli and the other Christian/Palestinian, dance for peace. They whirl in synchronicity like Sufi mystics breaking down the barrier of separation. This is a testament to what can be when loving one’s neighbor includes everyone. Dance is a path to the Spirit within, hallelujah!
