I am so grateful to Manaar and the other ecstatic musicians and dancers involved in this project for welcoming me and nourishing me so sweetly. My experiences participating in and helping to develop this offering with Manaar has ignited a deep welling up of joy within me.
Finally a place to sing and dance to my heart’s content. ”
We moved to song and then to drumming art a pace that enabled each of us to explore without concern there was a “right” or “wrong” to what we were doing. By the end of the session we were drumming, dancing and freely expressing ourselves in song.
I appreciate the way Manaar brings her talent as a teacher, a musician and a mentor to the process. She drew upon her multi-cultural background to bring us a sense of the cultures of the Middle East without limiting us to any one tradition. That, in itself, is healing”.
