“The Dance of Light explores the inherent oneness within life from a unique perspective: a multi-dimensional journey from the mineral kingdom, to the subtle realms that surround us, to our role as human beings. Only through including these different realms can we understand the true nature of life’s oneness, can we remember how the world is alive and permeated with light. The Dance of Light restores an original vision that is vital if we are to live the change that is so needed at this moment in time.”
– Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

About the Book

The Dance of Light offers us an account of a mystical vision that describes the earth as a sacred, living being. Drawing from his knowledge of African earth lore and mysticism, Steve Hurt shows how the ancient earth wisdom of our ancestors can be incorporated into a modern vision of ecology that integrates the old with the newly evolving. In this integrated approach he also shares a Sufi perspective with us about how all of life is imbued with a subtle light, and how we can work with this light in our daily lives to assist the earth in the birth of a new era. This book offers a refreshing diversion away from the popular ecological doomsday prophecies as it builds upon a positive and inspired vision of life that is filled with optimism about a new era of oneness. Ultimately, it shows us how our global community can work together to bring the sacred back into life, and thereby into our daily lives, helping to lay the foundations for a future that is alive with sacred purpose and in balance with the earth.
