I think this simple statement is powerful. Rhythm is the heart-pulse of an individual, extended to that individuals community.
It unifies the one with the many, and the many with the one. It forms the rich tapestry on which healthy societies are built.
FOLI (there is no movement without rhythm)
Wider society has lost its rhythm, after many years of economic oppression dressed as religious and state persecutions, aiming to deprive us of our self-direction through fear - the many have become disconnected from the one.
Slowly we are rediscovering rhythm, and gaining a deeper understanding of the difference between rhythm (as self-direction) and arrhythmia (as a top-down system of control)
Projects such as festivals, drum circles, unite us in rhythm, and while yes, it's a great party - the importance of being able to dance to a unified beat is essential if we ever hope to break away from the machine that is the market economy.
While we are dancing this is something that is felt, an intuitive understanding, that isn't often understood through words.
