"[R]estore[s] us to the mindfulness that offers calming perspective and renewed, non-judgmental excitement about our relationships with ourselves, our multi-layered communities and our environment. This book offers a chance to make lives better, and that is a real contribution." --Congressman Tim Ryan, OH-13; author, A Mindful Nation: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit "An indispensable tool for anyone who would like to move, breathe and live with more consciousness.... Has the power to revolutionize the way we move our bodies and minds [and] is foundational for the theory and practice of conscious dance." --Sarah Hentges, PhD, assistant professor of American studies, University of Maine at Augusta; author, Women and Fitness in American Culture "Heartfelt, embodied and spirited.... Abundant with accessible resources for not only personal practice and conscious dance communities but also for educational settings and ministry contexts. Both emerging leaders and seasoned professionals in ministry will [find] wisdom and inspiration that will support healing and wholeness in our communities." --Rev. Elizabeth D. Barnum, Fountain Street Church (United Church of Christ), Grand Rapids, Michigan "Applies mindfulness in a sophisticated way to help the reader bridge theory and practice. [A] personal and engaging style will help you learn to dance through more of the moments of your daily life, with all its ups and downs." --Richard Sears, PsyD, PhD, psychologist; author, Mindfulness: Living through Challenges and Enriching Your Life in This Moment "Skillfully integrat[es] mindfulness, psychological insights and creative play to show you how to move to music in ways that are good for your soul. Personable and gentle, it illuminates the importance of honoring your body as a vessel of meaning, healing and love.... An original contribution in the mindfulness field." --Mary NurrieStearns, RYT, LCSW, author, Yoga Mind, Peaceful Mind "Rare ... simultaneously cutting edge and accessible as well as practical and enlightening.... A must-read for any person who practices, teaches or researches mindfulness or embodiment.... I am so impressed with Dancing Mindfulness that I have developed an undergraduate psychology course centered around this book!" --Shannon Len Deets, PhD, licensed professional counselor; assistant professor psychology, Thiel College "A wonderful invitation into one's body, into one's creative spirit.... A comprehensive book [and] a wonderful tool for both the private dancer and for one who would like, with training, to offer space to explore this integrating modality to others." --Kyczy Hawk, author, Yoga and The Twelve Step Path and Life in Bite--Sized Morsels; founder, S.O.A.R.: Success Over Addiction and Relapse "Jamie's work ... strike[s] a chord. She has unique appeal among the very people who need her work most.... A welcome force among the members of Dance First, supporting the mission of 'movement before medication.'" --Mark Metz, founder, Dance First Association; publisher, Conscious Dancer Magazine "Makes a special contribution to the world of mindfulness by inviting all of us to get off the cushion and explore moving our miraculous bodies.... I encourage anyone interested in mindfulness to let go of old inhibitions and follow Jamie's wonderful guidance to experience the full body/mind joy of mindful dancing." --Terry Fralich, cofounder, Mindfulness Retreat Center of Maine; author, The Five Core Skills of Mindfulness: A Direct Path to More Confidence, Joy and Love "Offers a pathway to spirit through the body. Each chapter offers a doorway to dancing mindfulness as a personal practice and as an opportunity to facilitate others.... A must-read for anyone interested in developing a mindfulness practice through dance." --Theresa Benson, PhD, licensed clinical psychologist; expressive arts facilitator, University of Illinois "Meditation is more than sitting on your butt. Mindfulness is more than obsessively chewing a raisin. Both are about being so physically present to the environment that you can no longer maintain the delusion that you are other than the environment. [This book and practice] will take you to that place of acute presentness, and awaken you to the dance of life within and without." --Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author, Perennial Wisdom for the Spiritually Independent: Sacred Teachings--Annotated & Explained "Will help you dance your story in your space with mindfulness--a journey home to the present moment and ultimately to your authentic self ... greatly aided by the richness of intentional movement." --Durga Leela, RYT-500, founder, Yoga of Recovery "Helps us step away from the idea that in order to practice living mindfully or to 'figure things out' we should sit cross-legged, empty our minds and wait for answers. Our true ability to be mindful can come through dance and movement whenever we let it ... the possibilities are endless and so is your capacity for love, strength and acceptance. To quote Jamie, 'get up and dance!'" --Rev. Donald McCasland, LMSW-CCTP, clinical trauma professional; blogger, "The Functional Veteran" "An exciting new way to becoming fully present [and] a powerful introduction to a sense of total wellness.... I recommend this book most highly. This is mindfulness in spades--five stars." --Rev. Paschal Baute, EdD, author, Resilience of a Dream Catcher, Secrets of Intimacy and Lottie Mae, The Turkey Who Could Not Stop Dreaming "The modern gateway to the mind/body consciousness.... Reminds us to get up and feel our lives as they were meant to be alive in mind, body and spirit. Of course, the real gem ... is that it's even deeper than being alive--it's being down right joyful about it." --Leisa T. Mills, Buddhist teacher and mind/body activist "Most interesting ... for those looking for a more physical and creative way to practice mindfulness.... Includes discussion of the historical significance of dance as a healing arts form that involves attention to the physical and emotional self and, when practiced in a group, to growth in community and community building. The book also provides guidance in workshop development and leadership in this method, and has a DVD to illustrate the method." --Christine A. Courtois, PhD, ABPP, psychologist, Washington, DC; author, It's Not You, It's What Happened to You; Healing the Incest Wound and Treating Complex Trauma: A Sequenced, Relationship-based Approach (with Julian Ford, PhD) "[R]estore[s] us to the mindfulness that offers calming perspective and renewed, non-judgmental excitement about our relationships with ourselves, our multi-layered communities and our environment.
