For me, dancing had a big, fat, juicy stigma attached to it. Being terrified of looking a fool, I was hesitant and reserved. It took massive dance parties with many thousands of people, where I could disappear into anonymity, to awaken the dancer in me. Once that happened I very quickly came to a knowing that dancing was good for me - not just 'fun to do' but fundamentally important to my overall well-being. I had tapping into an ancient knowing that was bursting in my cells to be expressed.
I attended an introduction to Tantra in the Kadampa Buddhism tradition. As usual the Buddhist terminology had me shaking my head in confusion. I've interpreted the gist of it in flavours I am more familiar with, starting with some background as to why one would even consider a practise in Tantra in the first place.
