The Embrace: Learning-by-Being

The vintage embrace comes from being not doing:
Being there over time.
The tango embrace is the first step we learn in tango, but usually not from a teacher.

The embraced is learned from being not doing!

R.I.P. Tango: 1983-2033

The one who believes she'll live forever, takes the biggest risks.
The Body Tango is us.  I'll call her, Señorita Tango, but she is us.  The Body Tango says to itself, "I live forever!"

Denial of mortality is rather normal, I suppose.  But let me guess, perhaps by the year 2033 Señorita Tango will succumb to a slow death.   Could it be that soon?

2014: Resolve or Dissolve?

The Now is when we have good eye contact with the Universe

If tango is just a dance, a sport, a diversion, even a way to feel alive for the moment... then you have not yet danced the dance of dances, life's dance.  Tango allows us to touch the hem of the divine, all the while, feeling fully human and embodied as a woman or as a man.
