Hozuhni succeeds in rendering such transcendent experiences as enlightenment, ecstasy, and bliss accessible through her deep understanding of the spiritual power of solo dance. Readers will undoubtedly appreciate the book's progressive synthesis of the personal and universal, old and new, and East and West in this ancient but evolving and increasingly popular moving art-form.

Enlightenment Dance, Passion, and Self-findings?
This book discussed how Hozuhni was trying to find a happy place in her world. She is a divorced mother of 3 boys and was looking for a peace of mind. She had a job as a flight attendant and wrote this book from all over the world. (Which she foot notes where she is at on some pages) She discovers an exotic passion for Belly dancing. This dancing is not just belly dancing to her but its her happy place, its her enlightenment. She is on her journey full of bliss, excitement, and new beginnings.
Her major message of the book is that through her writing she hopes to inspire people to find what makes them happy and free. She discusses this through the entire book. She wants to move people to maybe try belly dancing but more to me moved and enlightened through her words and “spirit” throughout the book. Her main message sited in the first chapter is “I write to the part of you that can dance… not the “you” that you think you know, but for the YOU that knows more than you know!” She wants everyone to read this and find a self-discovery this book is moving and is for anyone!!
I loved the fact that this book is solely on her enlightenment and what she did to get her freedom from her every day life. I loved in her writing how she speaks directly to the audience more than just to her own story. In the first chapter she hooks you in by speaking directly to her audience. YOU, EVERYONE, and ME.
My dislikes were also in her writing. She went off topic at points in the book it would be her talking about dancing to her then being on a plane writing the book. Her transitions were not to clear and made the book a little less appreciative.
I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone. Especially anyone who’s looking for a light quick read. This book will reach your soul and influence you to get up and do something for you. At least it did for me. ;) So anyone looking for a mood lightener this is a great book for you!
