Posted: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?


wink

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

Posted: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)...

Posted: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

Posted: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...
