Grandmother's Secrets: The Ancient Rituals and Healing Power of Belly Dancing (American)

Grandmother's Secrets: The Ancient Rituals and Healing Power of Belly Dancing (American) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Al-Rawi has written a strikingly graceful and original book that blends personal memoir with the history and theory of the dance known in the West as "belly dancing". She conveys not only the history and technique of grieving and mourning dances, pregnancy and birth dances, but the spirit of these age-old rituals, and their possibilities for healing and empowering women today.

Book News Annotation:

The author blends personal memoir with an instructional guide to the dance known in the West as belly dancing. It is not only the story of a young Arab girl as she is initiated into womanhood, but a history of the dance from the earliest times to the present and a personal investigation into the effects of the dance's movements on individual parts of the body and the whole psyche. Originally published in German as Der Ruf der Grobmutter by Promedia (1996). Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
