    Default I know who I am when I belly dance

    A handbook for reclaiming your true feminine self by Daleela Morad.

    My review begins SIGH

    I should have known better...anyone else been tempted...

    especially the bit on how to integrate your shimmies "for an enhanced lovemaking session" and there's pictures...

    Layering shimmies on plain old hip circles is taxing enough for me...

    Hmm. What if one's lover mistakes the shimmies for seizures in the heat of the moment?

    Below is a copy of my post on Bhuz.. this book is dire....

    I had hoped this book was about why women in the West take up belly-dancing instead it's part belly dance as therapy/part how to seduce your sultan.....now part from godessy-smoddessy cr*p,nothing else is better designed to a) make me helpless with laughter b)speechless with exasperation.
    Still this book claims belly dancing can:
    mend a broken heart
    release past wounds
    heal sexual wounds
    get away from the wrong man
    dance away your grief
    alleviate certain medical conditions - yes exercise can make you feel good,improve your health but these kind of claims seem to make it seem as if belly dance has some sort of magical qualities
    mesmerise and tantalise your husband,make him feel special..blah bah...why is it always about what we can do for men..let 'em get their own f***ing therapy


    and I'm getting so irritated reading this verbage( or some similar word) I am gonna need some thearapy

    I don't think the shimmying is going to help those.

    Maybe he would need a dancing paramedic.

    As for layering shimmies, I'm with Aniseteph on that one

    Glad I never heard of this book before your review, as i am a bit of a magpie when it comes to books about BD
    ~Mosaic
    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    especially if he has allergies to feathers and nuts
    Who was the publisher that brought this?

    P.S I am off to dance my grief away and connect with the cosmic rainbow

    hahaha baklava goes sooo bad together with silk and feathers.

    Sticky, fatty, sugary cake just doesn't mix with a nice piece of silk
