Book Review: Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life
An energetic, illuminating, and enlightening read.
Kris Kelkar’s book, Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life, was a JOY to read! I sped through this book within a month (quite unusual for me)! It just sucked me IN! (Or perhaps, I sucked this book IN because of my extreme interest in the subject and eagerness to PULL this knowledge into ME! Haha!)
Interconnections and Vibrations
Throughout Dancing with The Field, Kris offers us deeply engaging, easy-to-follow, information on the Science of vibrational interconnections and how The Field underpins EVERYTHING!
As an Observer of Nature, I teach others how to shift our eyes to see things differently, so we might view multiple sides of a story or the various aspects of ANYTHING. And Kris adds a beautiful explanation, in the quote I share above, for why I do what I do! Reading that one page helped crystalize (for me) what I’ve been yearning to explain, simply.
Waves of Energy
Kris writes about the waves of Energy, yes. And of magic, mystery, and coherence. He dives into Spirituality and metaphysical teachings, as he explains frameworks. And touches on Tibetan Buddhism too!
Kris and I are on the same wavelength it seems. Similar to things I teach, Kris sees spiritual practices as training wheels too, like guidance or guard rails to living life. But, not so necessarily needed that we have become enmeshed with these particular dogmas such that they become an end to our means–in other words, we don’t have to worship the framework! (Even Jesus was teaching us a WAY we could live, not that we were supposed to WORSHIP Him!)
As well, and to build on this for a moment, we can take the profound words of Alan Watts, Terence McKenna, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Russell Brand and codify them into a religion (Oh, wait! “New Age” probably has already done that! LOL), but we don’t have to do that, nor do I think any of them would want us to do that! I know (from speaking with him) Neale Donald Walsch doesn’t want us to worship him! (Wink to Neale!) Of course, bowing is okay and gently honoring and humbling. To BOTH parties! As each of us are fractals of Omniscience. OMG I’m on a roll! ROFL!
Okay, Sheila. Calm down. Ha! Breathe. Ground. Center. OM
Kris does emphasize the value and healing of GROUP PRAYER though, as that creates coherence in the WAVE! And I believe that too, especially after experiencing the power I felt during a recent group OM chant, led by Dr. Shamini Jain! There were about 1000 people in the room and as am empath, I could FEEL the resonance and palpable Energy during that blissful coherent chant! I could FEEL the resonance in my soul as the blood in my body produced GodBumps!!!
I’ve been teaching certain classes and practices, methods and processes within my larger Integrated Spiral™ DE-Program (link here; and example of the process here) for over a year. But Kris summed it all up so nicely in this quote:
“We never see anything in its totality because everything is made up of layer upon layer of vibration that is constantly changing and exchanging information with the field. Our thinking minds create separation in an effort to understand, but that separation stops us from seeing the whole-that everything is connected to the one vibratory source, which is the Field. The Field does not only exist around us, but it also exists in us, through us, and as us.”Kris Kelkar, author Dancing with The Field: Bringing Joy, Passion and Play into Everyday Life
My favorite chapters, which I plan to read again and again, are:
- Our Bodies are Doorways to the Field
- Balanced, Attuned, and Aligned (as I’ve been doing the balancing and integrating, but with less focus on tuning. And why we read books like this–to remind us!)
- The Field in Relationship (as my husband and I practice this a LOT!)
- The Nutrient of Attention (as I struggle from having suffered “low self esteem” when I was young, to now, a few calling ME (ha!) “arrogant”!)
- Breathing in The Field
- Ecstatic Breathing
- Conscious Slow Breathing
- Breathing Bypasses Programming
Notice all the chapters having to do with BREATHING are favorites.
Because I’m a BREATHER! Haha!
Sorry, sorry… but that’s a twist on a favorite movie line of mine from Something about Mary, “We got a bleeder!” – and if you haven’t seen it or don’t remember, here’s a clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBwTeyZDRos
I’ve been a student of Nassim Haramein for several years, so I “got” what The Field is (and is no doubt why I was drawn to buy this book). BUT, I had not read any other book where someone from Kris’ background and education could explain certain things in a language that more matched my own, without all the scientific terms. (I do consider myself a scientist, but only in the natural sense of the word, as I observe, measure, research, test/experiment, and document.)
I love that Kris has also learned from the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza. Love Dr. Joe! Now, I’m wondering if I’ll bump into Kris at any event with Wim Hof, Dr. Bruce Lipton, or Gregg Braden?!? Ha! I bet we’ll meet one day!
For me, after finishing this book yesterday… and once again I resoundingly state that, Everything Resolves to Gratitude.
