Abstract:

"Dunya's intense passion for dance took her from a small seaside New England town in 1972 to the Julliard School in the heart if NYC's vibrant, edgy art scene. A decade later, healing from a serious injury, she turned away from her successful performing career and retreated to a monastic mountaintop community directed by a charismatic Iraqi Sufi Master. This sojourn opened a mysterious, beautiful inner world, and an understanding of dance as moving prayer. Her path became Dancemeditation. Part memoir and part guidebook, this rich account of life in the body takes dance beyond performance into a transformative realm where the physical, emotional and spiritual powerfully entwine."--Back cover.
