Last night I was bowled over with anticipation before the Opening Ceremony of the 17th World Congress of QiGong/Tai Chi/TCM in San Francisco, California. At the historic Victorian Hotel Whitcomb on Market St. I was in the back of the room as the magical Chinese Dragon danced and played in front of the group of us who were to be sharing our gifts for the rest of the presenters at the conference. He then turned and was starting down the aisle toward the front of the room when suddenly the organizers anxiously began telling us to go, now, and follow the dragon. No one had shared this was to happen so we were first confused. “Go?” we all whispered back. Two organizers quietly implored all of us to “Yes. Go.” “Please go.” Then as everyone anxiously remained rooted the ask of the organizers became more insistent, “PLEASE go.” But we, presenters were all kindly ushering to the others to “Go first,” “Please, you first,” “No, thank you, dear, you, please,” while the gap between the sparkling purple dragon was growing.
My shy self (yes, I promise she still lives in me) was saying, “Nooooo…. Who am I to go first?” and as this rolled through my body I could feel the bolt of pure Source saying, “If not you, then who?” I looked to the others who continued to politely insist that everyone else go, no you, no YOU, and what do you know — my dancing hands took my heart by the hand and pulled it forward with “This isn’t about you, shy Jane, this is about being a part of a whole, new world where we ALL must bravely walk forward to share our divinely given gifts – especially after the sparkling purple dragon, because come on, how often does that happen? (I’d long ago written a children’s book about a sparkling purple dragon and here he was — so funny to receive that sign here in the Bay of my birth.) And it was simple. Source said it wasn’t about me; it was about simply stepping forward to share what was given. So I just walked with purpose, closing the gap on the dragon. I didn’t have to dance. I didn’t have to speak. I didn’t have to perform. There was no script. I just had to step down the aisle toward the Congress that brought us all together to be game changers and help people feel better using the forces of the mind, body, and spirit connected to pure Source. And I survived. And the others followed. And no one was killed or hurt or felt bad or pointed fingers. We simply walked behind the sparkling dragon and waved and cheered one another on, and then shared our gifts, and people felt better. Simple. Simple!
Some of you may have seen the Facebook Live that I spontaneously shared on our Sparkling Circle Facebook page right before they called us to the back of the ballroom where you could see my nervousness. That is I, Jane, trusting the gift, but just out of my element and in an unknown arena sharing with so many others who are world renowned for their own flavor of the miraculous. Once my hands hear a yes they dance and all those nerves go away. Once pure Source knows that I’m simply here for serving God, (fill in your own word for pure Source/All-That-Is), and helping my fellow beings, and this beautiful universe, planet, community of light-workers and even those who know no light, but wish to feel better, these humble hands dance. It’s simple. I just open my heart in trust and voila.
And sometimes it’s not quite what we plan. In Rocklin we danced beside a bridge from the Gold Rush days that spanned a magical little stream. Elderly were carefully wheeled down on walkers. Suzi’s husband helped others down on his arm. And as I danced from person to person under the twilight the sky was filled with laugher, some tears, our music, birdsong, and the sound of a man singing far away an operatic song in Spanish. What a perfect mashup! I delighted in the cool lawn under my feet and then as I hit a patch of deep mud, while others went “Oh, no!” I went “Ah! Delightful surprise! An elemental sensual delight for my feet!” When the energy was so expansive that it not only knocked a few back into the arms of our catchers where they laid in pools of warm, cooing bliss and I, too, was knocked onto my bootie and then bounced up again quickly, instead of saying, “Dang,” I couldn’t help but to laugh in acknowledgement this IS so much bigger than all of us.
Perhaps you’ve seen the snippet of a dancing hands circle that broke out in wild delight at the front of the room where there wasn’t quite room to dance the way that we always dance in circles. Usually the circle is a single ring as wide as our space, but here the space in front of the chairs of the ballroom was narrow so we had 7 deep in some places. Concentric circles? Not quite, but it still worked because together we said, “YES!” and dancing with these QiGong Masters I bowed and thanked them for their gifts and they hooted and hollered and laughed with me as we played in this arena of all we can do and be together. It was a gas! So much energy. What I had feared reduced me again to gratitude that if I can simply trust in the gift there is so much more for us all to enjoy!
Want to be a part of any of this? If you want to see me live you can see me in San Francisco all weekend — Today, tomorrow for a brief circle, and then again on Monday for a three-hour circle. It may say tickets are sold out on the website now, but I promise – come to the door and there are tickets for sale for you for any event of mine you wish to attend.
Private sessions while I’m on tour in every city are also available for a limited amount of people and time. Please let Suzi know what you’d like – 30 min. or one hour sessions are available. Write to her at email@example.com. Private Skype or phone sessions will resume when I return to CA September 15 and you can set that up yourself via the links on janesdancinghands.com. Zoom sessions will be resuming as well by the end of September, if not sooner, for our international groups who love being online with the dancing hands lovefest.
I fly to Washington DC this Tuesday where I’ll be dancing with The White House because goodness knows we need to bring more peace and harmony from the house that President Obama says belongs to all of us in America, yes? I also have an awesome tree house space where we’ll be dancing in Bethesda to which you are also invited. This is a magical space for harmonious joy in the trees of lush Maryland perfect for pura Vida + pure Source.
Want to dance for peace in Strawberry Fields in Central Park, NYC with me? This is John Lennon’s dedicated space for such events and I’m thrilled to dancing with all who come, rain or shine. Bring your picnic basket and blankets and stay for the day of peace and harmony, especially on this eve of 9/11. We’ll be doing a Facebook Live before the event, so please look at the meme with this whole sweet spot tour for the times here.
Calling all light houses, light beings, light beamings and dancing hearts. Also, as you can see in the above meme, there is another Facebook Life from Beavertail Lighthouse in Rhode Island. Like our Sparkling Circle Facebook page and then join us for FREE again on the day at the time and dance with me from this gorgeous spot.
We hadn’t shared it last time, but here are the coordinates for the special location we found in Rhode Island due to the generosity of the Coastal Institute of Rhode Island University. At Napatree Point, a magical spit of sand between two waterways we’ll be dancing hands and hearts. This is a long, meditative walk to the point, so if you are physically challenged this won’t be your best space unless we can fire up the ATVs for transport. We ARE asking about those ATV’s (thank you Eric and Judith for all of this!) and we MAY have some help here from the University, so please let us know if you’d like to be a part of this special day connecting the Atlantic Ocean ley lines of energy to all the Pacific Ocean energies many of us know so well.
NEW event added just this minute! Rhode Island September 13, 2016 at 7pm at the Courthouse Center for the Arts – after the Napatree Point Dancing Hands Circle. People from Rhode Island, this is the place we were last dancing. It is the perfect event for those who have physical challenges as there is an elevator to take you to the second floor of this historic building or if you don’t feel like dancing in the winds.
Are you feeling this ocean connection, too? And the elemental connection of pura Vida connecting with pure Source to bring heaven on earth right within you? Feeling the aloha rising in all of this or wishing to connect more deeply with the energies of spirit, earth, water, air, and fire?
Our Aloha Rising – Hawaiian Retreat is now online with Early Bird specials for the next two weeks. 40 Days and 40 Nights from now, Oct. 14 -16 we begin a three day journey on Hawaii Island from mauka o ke kai – from mountain to sea – from active Kilauea volcano, land of Pele to the water, from East side of the island to the west. From Pele’s home to the Hikiau Heiau, the sacred temple whose caretakers for 13 generations have only been women. This is the heiau where our beloved Kahu Aka presided, the heiau that is connected to the Seven Sisters, the Pleiades. This retreat was ushered forward by an invitation from the dearest Kahu Ka’imiloa and Kumu Pulamawai from Oahu, who wished me to dance with their Kahu and Kumu friends, too, that the aina (the earth) was calling for us to pull together and dance for health, harmony, peace, and true aloha, and they said I could invite you, too. Kapu has been lifted for this so we are grateful!
Hawaiian protocol will be a huge part of this retreat with the dearly, deeply, wonderfully connected Kahu Ka’imiloa and Mama Aina, Kumu Pulamawai. Please see the links to our kahu and kumu on our event page and you will see why we’ll all be triply blessed this retreat. And yes, after the retreat we will be swimming with the dolphins, so if you’d like to be a part of all this, please join us. This Event Page is new and building so please check in frequently for updates that are ongoing as we tour.
Remember while many say this gift of the dancing hands has been percolating with me for a long time, it wasn’t until Abdy touched my head on Mother’s Day weekend My 2015 in Berkeley, CA (where I was born) that my hands really, truly danced. Would you like to meet him, too? Then please join me in Venice, CA on Sept. 25 for one or two shorter sessions or an all day event on Oct. 1, 2016. He will also be returning to Encinitas, CA and many parts around the country, (where I’ll only be in spirit), as well as continuing his free hourly meditations on his website at abdy.info. Love to see you in CA, as well, so let me know if you’d like to go and please, if you see him elsewhere bear my thanks and love. I am so grateful for his support in this gift and had he not given me his encouragement and loving push to get out there there I would likely not be on the dancing hands tours or doing this work, (shy Jane needs encouragement), so please, please know I am forever grateful for Abdy.
And YOU! There are so many who have helped me already – through all my tours and it is sooooo beautiful to see and remeet again on this new Sweet Spot Tour! My eyes fill with tears to see so many old friends and soul family on this trail, as much as my heart fills with joy to meet new friends who feel like family. We’ve all gone through so much to get here and I am grateful you’ve shown up, too. Thank you for YOU!
Seeing perfection in every soul who dances before me is my honor. I am so grateful to look at you all with the “God Goggles” especially when the world might tell you otherwise. Do you know how much healing and helping we can all provide when we truly radiate back to one another the way the pure Source sees us? When you step into your greatest gifts what do you see that helps light the path for others to realize their part of the divine? I hope you will write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or share on our Sparkling Circle Facebook to help light this path for others. We are here shoulder to shoulder dancing in this Sparkling Circle together and I’m so grateful for your wisdom, your heart, and your intention for our collective and individual best and highest good. I will dance with you soon.
Love Always all ways.
PS A huge thank you for every coordinator in every city helping. Thank you to Suzi for leading them all through the wild channels of putting on a tour and for Eric and today Kai for presenting and catching, too! To the next adventure – THANK YOU ALL!
