Dance & Movement

The more we visibly align our movements, the more we feel connected. Some communities of faith integrate dance and movement into their religious services or prayer practices. Swaying back and forth, spinning, nodding or simply sharing gestures during a prayer all add dimension to the experience and weave us together even more tightly.

Very often an ideal prayer position is defined for us.

Indigenous groups often make extensive use of dance. For example, Native Americans have unique ceremonial dances for specific gatherings, where the drums, instruments and movements are the prayers.
