Today I entered into madness. But it came from the music. Such MAD music – it almost scared me. Perhaps because I had to surrender to it.
Madness when it arises naturally from within is simply nature expressing – wild nature expressing Wildness.
What when I am bombarded by mad music and I recoil in some fear, because I feel I am not ready for it?
But then I enter it, stumblingly, awkwardly, uncertainly.
And enter and enter and find that I move funny, strange, ugly. Not elegant, beautiful, graceful…?
But I keep entering and suddenly all the labels fall away.
And I am simply the Dance.
And the music simply is food to spur me on.
I love myself in the dance.
And I have moments when I love the Moment so much I have to gasp.
I love myself and I love the moments that I am moving in – in the dance.
Aaah! I say and Dance on.

I am a woman with roots on two continents, Africa and Europe. I am passionate about supporting people in coming together in more authentic and life-affirming ways than what is the norm in most of our dominant systems. I am the co-founder of Kufunda Learning Village, a centre dedicated to working with rural Zimbabweans as they discover their wealth and wisdom, for themselves, but also for people everywhere.
My journey and my passion is around learning to follow my own inner voice of wisdom, and in that finding joy and flow. That journey has brought me back to my essential nature as a Dancer. Through conscious dance I am finding my way into deeper relationship with myself and the world.
I look forward to many more women rising to their power, especially in Zimbabwe, to help shift this beautiful country out of its stuck and painful place.

Yes. Simply, utterly we are the dance. Madness and all.
