I felt really moved by this particular dance with Isadora Duncan choreography, called “The Rosepetals” the first time I tried it in 2014 at a dance class for Kathleen Quinlan. I hadn’t even heard about it, less danced it when I for example did the photo shoot on Oahu for my book “The Call for Divine Mothering” in 2010, but as so often in life, one thing leads to the other, developing our seeking and finding into more. This is why it can feel like magic! A rose to me simply symbolizes love, which is why I had a small one tattooed on my upper arm in 1993, to always remind myself to believe in love.
Here is me practicing this dance in Stockholm, although with petals from tulips this time. To me dancing “The Rosepetals“, besides the original interpretation and purpose, enable us to pick up the torch and carry on with Isadora Duncan’s mission with our next.
