Our goal at Dance of the Spirit is to enrich the lives of our online community and impart the feeling that the world is a wonderful, magical, interactive experience. Along the way, if we can make your day more joyful, abundant, and less lonely, we will have gone a long way toward accomplishing our purpose.
The DOTS logo symbolizes many things, including protective angel wings enveloping tired or troubled shoulders, even as it underscores the “inner strength” found at the core of every woman (or man) making their way down life’s road on this earthly journey. It also emphasizes the Power of Love, especially when one chooses to nurture one’s self, symbolized by The Dance of the Spirit.
We are an intergenerational site designed to enhance individual and collective wisdom. We emphasize the supernatural, quantum aspects of the world and encourage everyone (especially women) to seek their own inner knowing while sharing with others.
Spend a few minutes (or a few hours) with us. We hope that your life is better for it: ranging from a simple improvement of mood and the way you approach your day, to a life-changing epiphany . . . or better still, a pivotal moment that changes your point of view about the world and yourself.
Dance of the Spirit endeavors to be a source of continuing education for men and women and young adults.
In addition, we strive to serve those who have already mastered many of life’s lessons and are mentoring others. Subjects will range from ancient and traditional teachings, “news of the weird”, to the latest updates from quantum physics and/or Science and Consciousness research, etc.
In particular, we visualize a wide range of educational experiences (from “101 basic levels” to “Masters” courses) as we focus on embracing an ancient concept, one that proposes common pathways found within the spiritual stages of feminine development: “Maid, Mother, and Crone” …. with the primary reflection of this philosophy being GAIA, our precious Mother Earth.
Let us clearly state that it is not our intent to exclude men at DOTS—Indeed, every human being has a left-right brain—Feminine and Masculine aspects of the Sacred GodHead reside in us all. There is much to be garnered from the information gathered at Dance of the Spirit, no matter what your gender (or age) might be.
Dance of the Spirit is a virtual gathering place for fun facts and entertainment, a “one-stop shopping” experience for a wide variety of inspirational ideas, unusual products, and enlightening information.
Be sure to BROWSE the shopping mall, too! We hope our products enhance the positive aspects of our site, serving as mementos, little treasures that remind you of lessons mastered as a result of being part of our Dance of the Spirit community.
The shopping mall supports the Dance of the Spirit project, an endeavor akin to a ministry of love. Over and Above operating costs, ten percent (or more) of all profits from the general shopping mall will be donated to the Dance of the Spirits FOUNDATION with a focus on environmental causes and women and/or children in need.

As the founder of DanceoftheSpirit.com, Executive Editor SANDRA CLINE holds a basic belief about the wonder of life: that there is no sensation more magical or mystical than the surprise of loving and being loved. Sandra has been married to her husband, Ron, for over three decades. She is mother to daughter Michelle and son Chris. She has the honor of being “Omi” (Celtic for grandmother) to twin grandsons Korbin & Logan and grand-daughter Nia Grace. Sandra is an avid supporter of pro-literacy organizations and an ardent environmentalist. In the working world, Sandra transitioned from a successful career in radio broadcasting to that of freelance writer; she is also the author of Pug Sheridan, a critically-acclaimed novel. When Sandra decided to write Pug Sheridan, a story about the indestructible soul of female friendship, she found that her formative years (while growing up in Alabama) had forged an undeniable truth, one that she found lodged within her heart …. that EVERYONE, without exception, is tied to the land and to each other, across the world and beyond. After publication, Pug Sheridan quickly became a cross-over genre, appealing to teens AND an adult, mainstream audience. Print reviews for Sandra’s book have been more than kind, e.g. “The book’s believability kept me reading late into the night. The human element rings true, as does the mystical” . . . “Sandra Cline’s tale of a rural Alabama trapped between two centuries in the days leading up to World War I is romantic, spiritual and soothing. But it burns with something deeper – - a social conscience that crosses generations.” If you are interested in reading Sandra’s novel, QUICK CLICK on the book icon below:
KIM HANSON is the marketing coordinator for DOTS. She is also a key assistant to Sandra Cline (Sandra’s “Number One”) and a contributing writer for Dance of the Spirit. Kim is a maiden in her spiritual feminine journey, (regarding Maid, Mother, & Crone), and yet we are pleasantly reminded that she has had the opportunity to contemplate ideas much further along in the feminine spiritual journey. Kim obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from The University of New Mexico in 2007, and has worked in the film industry — doing everything from set design & makeup for indie films — to production office and background acting in feature films. Kim intends to write award-winning screenplays one day, and wishes to see her dazzling visual worlds on the big screen. She enjoys doing anything creative including — writing, photography, interior design, and of course reading! Kim has learned that a person needs nothing more than the love and support of those closest to them, and the belief in one’s heart that “you can do anything if you believe in yourself.” A dreamer at heart, Kim finds visiting fantasy lands her number one hobby.

Marylynn Buckley was ordained a Universalist Unitarian minister in the year 2000. She was asked to stand as an Elder to First Nations (in Ontario Canada) in 2008—teaching organic farming and food preservation techniques, as well as herbal uses and other practical skills.
Marylynn spent six years studying agriculture, nutritional, and bio-molecular courses online—but always felt that the Earth was her greatest teacher.
She believes that science (including quantum physics) is beginning to understand the way of nature—but long conversations are still needed in order to help Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

Marylynn is the owner of Coyote Moon Holistic Farm in Western Kentucky. She lives there with the love of her life—and their many animals. Their intentional focus is on free range, chemical free sustainable farming practices while raising chickens, ducks, and goats— maintaining an open heart (and an open home) to a variety of cats and dogs in need.
Future plans include assisting disabled veterans—teaching them sustainable farming techniques and giving them the knowledge they need to have their own homesteads or farms. AND, expanding the Coyote Moon Trading Post into a local farmer’s market—encouraging recycling, re-using, and the sharing of equipment, along with seed trade to keep seeds diverse with an organic focus on heritage seed stock.

SARAH CEDARS was a primary (and invaluable) catalyst for the idea behind (and the creation of) DanceoftheSpirit.com and remains a supportive influence and contributor. SARAH is still wondering what she wants to be when she grows up. Sarah was raised in rural New Mexico, where her adventure-loving father imbued her with a love of nature and the outdoors, and her mother taught her about magic and grace. She married her high school sweetheart and they have now been together for 30 years. In spirit, they are still “newlyweds.” Sarah and her husband have one daughter, who is now a mother herself. She considers spending time with her grandson to be the high point of every week. Sarah’s first career was in nursing, where she specialized in drug and alcohol rehab. After spending ten years in the medical field, she became restless and, craving adventure, started taking flying lessons. Ultimately she landed a job as a pilot with a major U.S. Airline, where she flew for over 15 years before losing her medical certificate due to an inner ear problem and subsequently retiring. Sarah is always on a quest for fun and education, and in her travels has spanned several continents, from racing sailboats across the Sea of Cortez to trekking in Peru to dining on reindeer in Helsinki. (Don’t worry kids, it wasn’t Rudolf.) Sarah adores the study of spirituality, talking with her girlfriends about abstract ideas and seeking out interesting and “out there” people, places and things. She loves the calmness and wisdom she has attained with age, and intends to spend the next 50 years in study and travel.
