The Cosmic Dance comes to us from Joyce Rupp with artwork by Mary Southard. Orbis Books, 2002 is an opportunity to delve deeply into an experience of the Sacred Cosmos. Against the tapestry of Southard’s images, Rupp weaves her prose and poetry to invite the reader into their own experiences of oneness through the breath we share with trees and stars and peoples fading in and out of ancient and future time. The dance is the energy we share with deep time quarks, elementary particles and countless galaxies dancing ever more deeply away from us into space. The book is an invitation to deep awareness, since our experience of the Cosmic Dance depends on senses being alert and heart attuned to what is beyond the surface–to the Energies alive and dancing deep within my own soul and the soul of every being.
