Facilitator's Invitation

Inspired Action

Sunday, February 11th

Facilitator: Cat Hay

There was once upon a time,
I didn’t know my reason or rhyme
People would say “oh you are doing just fine”
But that wasn’t the landscape of my inner mind

I needed more, I needed to feel and see
How is it my existence came to be?
And if I am here is there a purpose to me?
Is my life fated? Or is my life free?

I looked all around, desperate to know
I read ancient texts, learned the art of flow
I sought wisdom in the trees, in the caw of the crow
I cried out for the pains that occurred long ago

First I cried for my own unacknowledged pains
Fear, anger, grief, am I insane?
And then the pain went beyond my own selfish domain
To the wounds of a world living in vain

Somehow through all this, I came to realize
That in order to be here, in order to survive
Whatever the cause of my being alive
Inspiration would wipe the tears from eyes

I noticed there were times when I felt a spark inside
Upon seeing something so creatively divine
Or reveling in the synchronicity of a series of signs
And in the way a small act of kindness could change the course of one’s life

I tended those sparks and followed their lead
I let go of the things that felt wrong for me
I gave up looking for a destination to be
I followed my bliss, trusting this as the key

It’s a conscious effort, yet what else can we do?
But follow those sparks, so bright & so true
Tending the seeds of our heart’s inspiration
Trusting this to give will in taking right action

This more than anything has been my guiding star
When everything else in the world seems dark
I tune into these little sparks near and dear to my heart
May divinely inspired action bless our dance and our art

Cat will be djing a live set accompanied by live instrumentation by the incredible Kevin Spears. Check out his many musical accolades and accomplishments on his website at www.kevinspears.com

Spears masterfully utilizes human ingenuity and technology to weave horns, bass, violins, synths, drums and world percussion – creating an instant one-man folk-world-funk band that will leave you spellbound and dancing all the same!

Cat and Kevin are excited to be collaborating to bring to AMC a unique one of a kind ecstatic dance experience ✨ Please plan to donate a little extra in support of our gifted musical guest!
