  • To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your
    innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads,
    pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an
    ancient and universal form of self healing, whether
    done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge.
    I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance,
    the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more
    you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come
    to ecstasy.

    Gabrielle Roth

    Break dancing on the edge of the known world
    the lights of spinning planets fill our sky
    let the sacred trance-formations fly

    Break dancing our days across time and space
    caught up in orbits of evolution
    waiting for a revolution

    Break dancing to the ancient tribal drums
    calling in long-ago ancestral dreams
    trance-mitting in the cosmic streams

    Break dancing Technicolor harmonies
    letting go of mortal limitations
    sending prayers to all the nations.
