“Creative work…is a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.” Pressfield
We are off and rolling…Yogis Dance Flash Mob Mission has had two successful runs already. The premise was to marry two of my favorite movement forms-Yoga and Dance, with live drumming! in a public eruption of uncorked joy and playfulness. “Devotion in Motion, Compassion in Action” (that is actually MC Yogi’s) came alive both on the U of A Mall, on Equinox, Sept 2009, and again, on a busy downtown street on a Full Moon Friday night, in Oct 2009. In a nutshell…
A few dozen yogis and dancers met on a busy street corner at 8:00pm. We spontaneously began a flow of freestyle yoga postures, as if it was the most natural and normal thing to bust into a few poses on the sidewalk on a friday night. We moved for 3 minutes until 8 or so drummers emerged from the shadows playing outrageously infectious rhythms. We flocked to them, dancing joyfully and wildly, for just 3 more minutes. When they stopped we all dispersed and blended back into the scene, as if nothing out of the ordinary had just happened!
What uncorked playfulness, and a blast of community love!
Here’s what some of the participants had to say!
“What a great party and all in 6 minutes” “What a blast!” “More, more” “Magic!”
“One Love…the magic of me and you and all of us in the expanding moment…anything is possible-why wait-be-me-not afraid to love- unique-bonding-share the unexpected- play like it’s the real thing-and it is!”
Yes, it is the real thing. We were are not performing-this is real life. Thank God!
