“This luminous book brings great gifts of clarity and ease. With beauty, respect, and exquisite sanity, it lets us rediscover the deep grace that connects and flows through mind, heart, body, and world.”

As long as humanity can remember, we have recognized the power of dance and movement. Many cultures still consider dance a sacred art and a vital part of ritual, worship, and other spiritual practices. Until recently, Westerners who have sought to tap the power and wisdom of their bodies have done so through Eastern disciplines such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Sufi dancing.
In The Serpent and the Wave, Jalaja provides a modern, Western perspective on movement meditation, healing, mind/body integration, and personal power. Filled with simple, clearly-illustrated exercises and meditations, this unique source book has real-life tools that anyone may use.
