Workshops at New York City
On June 3, 2007, Anita Ratnam conducted a master class for meditation
students in New York City at the studio of QIGONG guru Sat C Hon. In the
four hour session, Anita shared the discipline of Bharatanatyam mudras
and the overarching design of specifics and exactness that is the hall
mark of Indian classical dance. The workshop was attended by 15 advanced
meditation students, ages ranging from 30 to 65, and was designed to
include and encourage the parricpants who of Asian and Western descent.
The participants learned pure dance phrases as well as the technique of
facial expression to poetry.
"My students loved your workshop and I was thrilled to have you present such an exquisite workshop."
“A transmission of the lamp from ancient times to the
present, Anita is the light bearer of such an ancient wisdom-tradition
of living in the moment with movement and emotion. As a Taoist, I seem
to see in her as a long lost sister practicing the sacred movement of
mind, heart and soul.”
"As to the martial art, I have a sense that most of my
students would not be interested in doing something so confronting. I
realized that it was mostly my own interest as an martial artist. So we
have to do something else."
