Book Title: Grandmother's Secrets: The Ancient Rituals and Healing Power of Belly Dancing
Publisher: Interlink Publishing Group
Author: Rosina-Fawzia Al-Rawi
Al-Rawi has written a strikingly graceful and original book that blends p personal memoir with the history and theory of the dance known in the West as belly dancing. She conveys in this book not only the history and technique of grieving and mourning dances, pregnancy and birth dances, but the spirit of these age-old rituals, and their possibilities for healing and empowering women today.
