If music is what you hear between the notes . . .

. . . . . Poi is how you feel between the moves . . . . .



And how do you feel between the moves?

I think its funny hug

meditate

This is a preparation Thread for the Ueberpoi Class:The Dao of Poi since if we can discuss all important aspects of the Dao of Poi (btw all in total 42) I am no longer obliged to teach the class and therefore get the possibility to attend Arashis 'choreography, presentation, and poi dancing theory' class. Now we only have to find a way how to get Glass free from What is Good Poi so we gonna have a
full two class grouphug biggrin

Ueberpoi will censored

Greetings from Ocean Beach, SF

PS: I am still looking for volunteers who help me doing sand circles in South West England hug2

i'm artistically challenged and am clumsy to boot so the sand circles don't sound like something i'd be too helpful in making.

but i'll gladly climb up a big hill and take photos of them smile

as for the dao of poi, its all a mystery to me (hence you teaching it and not me wink)...

I'm artistically challenged too (can't draw anything, you should see my handwriting!), but all you need is a piece of string and you can draw perfect straight lines and circles, and all kinds of complex geometric stuff.



Is a sand circle workshop a possibility for Falmouth4?



If so I'll bring string, stakes, a rake and copies of Islamic patterns and How to Draw Celtic Knotwork for ideas. biggrin

@polarity: Bring your books. At the moment I am working with Sacred Geometry (thx Vatra) and a Geomtric Ornament book. Start dreaming . . . ubbrollsmile

And about the Dao of Poi:

3 Andreas in a row - Good Luck for us. Make a wish smile

About the Tibetan monks . . . when do they do their sand art?
When they dream of Beaches like Sairee on Koh Tao (Right click and save as - its a promo for COL5 hug)

And about the Dao of Poi:
In order to gain Knowledge - learn a new move every day.
In order to gain Wisdom - learn how to forget them again...
