Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Of African, Lakota and European descent, Two-Trees teaches the combined wisdom of her ancestral traditions. Here she tells the story of how she found her way from traumatic past events into the calling of a dancer, artist and teacher who uses rituals to discover the creative process of living. She asks us to redefine our concept of dance to embrace a sacred awareness of every movement we make, and reminds us of the importance of developing the body's sacred creative powers by discovering the dance in our everyday lives. "I walk, and my feet touch the ground--my heel calls up my ancestors when it hits the ground. I'm dancing. When you sit to write or to paint, how do you come to the chair? That's dancing.... We're always dancing," she tells us. "It is a truly spiritual, physical and political act to reclaim the sanctity of our beings.... For me it begins with our own bodies."
