Don't Drop the Torah
Don’t Fight Your Pain. Dance with It!
Sun Feb 19th 4:00PM PST
I’m kicking off a series of Dancing with Pain® online programs, starting with, “Don’t Fight Your Pain. Dance with It!” – a multimedia event featuring live music and spoken word performance, personal storytelling, and self-care tips – including a live demonstration of Dancing with Pain® basic moves – to inspire and guide you on living with and healing from chronic pain. This event has been designed for lay people and wellness practitioners alike, and is useful whether you’re taking a holistic, conventional, or integrative medicine approach to pain management.
Dancing with Pain
About eight years into this ordeal, a series of serendipitous experiences led me to an epiphany – that by reconceptualizing dance as more than leaps, twirls, and fancy footwork, I could use it to heal myself. I started “dancing” with whatever part of my body was not in pain – initially, only my arms – and within as little as an hour, I would go from limping to leaping. In the beginning, I would wake up on a pain level around 7-8, then dance, and the pain would go down to a 2-3, but then I’d wake up with the pain jacked up again. While I wanted to progress the way I did before the car crash – for example, doing a new workout routine that got easier each week – I was grateful that at least I had something to get the pain down each day.
