Question for Eve Ensler, artist-activist: Are there any practices to bring us back into our bodies and spirits?
Answer: I really believe in dancing. If the women of Congo have taught me anything, it is that dancing is the answer to trauma. The women of Congo dance like no other people I've ever seen in the world ~ they dance in a way that is transformative on the cellular level. I've seen a woman who's gone through terrible trauma, and the women gather with her, and they dance and they dance. I think people should dance all day long. I think it should be a part of what we do.
