The Divine Dance
In the Sacred Landscape of Britain

There are two natural energies inside each of us, one male and one female. The male energy is characterized by qualities like logic, power, focus, directness, giving, commitment, pushing, excitement and manifestation. The female qualities relate to nurturing, acceptance, softness, meandering, receptivity, creativity, restfulness and peacefulness. If there is an imbalance between them or we don’t allow one of them to flow naturally, it becomes very difficult to run our lives in a harmonious and successful way, as we need both to take on the challenges of this life in a loving and purposeful manner. This is key to solving all other imbalances in the world (violence, poverty, conflict, injustice, ecological devastation, etc.).
Our journey was a whole exercise of balancing the male and female energies on many levels; balancing planning and structure with the energy of going with the flow and allowing things to unfold spontaneously. There was often a dance between us – Adelina, the artist, and Frances, the dancer.
This adventure involved lots of walking and an amazing variety of landscapes, from rolling hills to spectacular cliffs with sea views, from churches to caves and an uncovering of an older more ancient landscape of Britain, which we hope you can appreciate in the beauty of the pictures here. We would encourage anyone who is inspired by this book to venture out into this beautiful landscape and look towards the layers of history and mystery right on your doorstep
Frances teaches Yoga and loves to create sacred space in which to experience Yoga, be it in the middle of a town or in deep nature. Space clearing has been a major part of her journey of transformation along with yoga and dance. www.FrancesLewis.co.uk
