Thanks to everybody for making it such a fun and joy-full week dancing One Billion Rising! Below is the complete playlist for the routine (please note that I could only find the OBR songs on the www.onebillionrising.org site, so do check there if you’d like to download them.) Also, below are the readings that I used in classes.
And remember that we can all make choices that are both challenging and healing. Change starts inside.
May we all be safe, happy, healthy and peaceful.
May I (you, we, etc.) be safe and well
May I be happy and content
May I be healthy and strong
May I be peaceful and at ease
~ Metta Meditation ~
Take courage, friends.
The way is often hard, the path is never clear,
and the stakes are very high.
For deep down, there is another truth:
You are not alone.
~ Wayne Arnason
May I be a guard for all those who are unprotected,
A guide for those who journey on the road,
For those who wish to go across the water,
May I be a boat, a raft, a bridge.
For all those ailing in the world,
Until their every sickness has been healed,
May I myself become for them
The doctor, nurse, the medicine itself.
