Cleopatra Dhow Cruise: The Tanoura Dance

Tanoura or el-Tanoura (Arabic: التنورة‎) is an Egyptian folk dance usually performed in Egyptian Sufi festivals.

The philosophical basis for the spinning is from the Mawlawis who say that the movement in the world begins at a certain point and end at the same point, therefore the movement has to be circular. Their various roundabouts symbolize the succession of the four seasons and their anti-clockwise movement is exactly like the movement around the “Kaaba” (the holy Shrine in Mecca).

Day 4: Dancing With the Light

dancing light

Vibrant colors of greens and blues
Flashing crystals that capture stares
Love must be as much of that light
That one sees leave the shadows behind

When so much light within
It shows externally
Let your light shine. Be a source of strength.
Radiate love. Show compassion.

Day 3: Don’t Stop Believing – on Your Dreams

Don't Stop Believing...

Don’t Stop Believing…

Throw your dreams into the space like a giant kite
Sway by the wind to which ways it set
You never know what it will bring back in time
A new love, a new life, a new friend to treasure

Carve your dreams into the ground like a mountain rock
Strike by the storm it can always withstand
You whisper in your heart the seeds of fulfillment
The passion, the strength, the patience to pursue

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams
Live the life you always imagined
Don’t stop believing, no giving-up
Dare to always dream!!!
