When life feels scary or uncertain, my mind loves to play the perfection game: if I do everything just right and don’t make any mistakes, then I’ll be safe and loved and everything will go the way I want it to. In the perfection game, I put lots of energy into eating just the right things and washing my hands just the right way and trying to get everything just right. And guess what? I still feel scared and uncertain.

Perfectionism is just fear in fancy shoes and a mink coat. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

Today’s Dharma Dance practice moves with the fear (whether in dress-up clothes or not) and offers a chance to let go of doing it right. Instead, integrate body and mind by moving in new ways (Body as Student) and then allowing the body to lead (Body as Teacher). Kick off the fancy shoes and the fur coat and move from the inside out. You can find the video here.
