Playlists for December 9 – 13, 2013 – Connection Confection

connection confection ubuntuA powerful good week of music and movement focused on connections in the body and our connection to the world. We celebrated the life of Nelson Mandela, the man who connected people who seemed unconnectable and touch lives across the planet with his spirit of Ubuntu, “human kindness.” I am because we are.

People sent me a slew of Mandela-related links, too many to share all of them but two I thought were particularly moving:

TED Talk by Boyd Varty – What I Learned From Nelson Mandela

Touching Mandela flashmob tribute

You are not inconsequential. Your very presence on this planet means that you make a difference. The question is, what kind of difference do you want to make?

Dance on. Shine on.

  1. I love these playlists. What a great idea. 🙂 Stopped by here because I just published a post with the title: I Am Because We Are! I never knew about Ubuntu but I’m thrilled to hear about it. Looking forward to staying connected and seeing what other non-coincidence take place. 😉
    Blessings,

    • Lovely! Enjoy the music and dance where ever you are. And yes, “non-coincidence” indeed! Welcome. — Susan
