I absolutely adore finding songs that instantaneously create a yearning-filled emotional reaction in my body upon hearing the first chord. Those are the songs where the first words out of my mouth (after I’ve sighed a heavy groaning) are “Oh my, I could guide to that!!” Such was the case when I heard “This Night” by Black Lab. It simply rocked me to my chakra-balanced core. Look at the album name…kinda sums it up…Passion Leaves A Trace. Umm…hello?! How could I not be pulled toward that?! A deeply liquid, beguiling and intensely beckoning call of a song, with a direct line from the pelvis to the soul. My Soultree heart & hips are aching to help women gyrate this dark undercurrent through their bodies! The ability to set myself free for 3 minutes and 29 seconds is a gift beyond any couch I’ve ever sat upon (that’s after a gratitude shout-out to my unbelievable therapist who has shifted and sustained my emotional journey for the last two decades). I could go on and on about what happens to the mind/body/soul when a woman surrenders to a dark room, no mirrors, a perfectly chosen playlist and a Guide leading her every move so her mind can give way her body. Perfection. Poetry in motion. Music as alchemy, movement as therapy. Yes! Bring it on…I’m ready to dance.
