“To everything there is a season…a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to reap that which has been planted” – Ecclesiastes 3:2, The Bible

“Of what is the body made? It is made of emptiness and rhythm. At the heart of the world there is no solidity, there is only dance…” – George Leonard

“At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, a complex of wave forms and resonances, which is absolutely individual and unique, and yet which connects us to everything in the universe.” 

 – George Leonard
