What would make "social dance" anti-social. It's no longer a question.

Social neurologists have the answer.

The medical model "getting to zero" in zero infections, zero addictions; zero pain, and even zero even distress in relationships. But the human psyche needs more than simply "getting to zero."

Why do so many great dancers stop dancing after attaining mastery? Maybe because tango is heaven but not a place. If you try to make it a place, you never arrive and are liable give up when it starts to become elusive.

You know, I have this gut feeling. :-)

Want to be in a bad mood? Believe the saying, "As in Life, so it is in Tango." Life has collisions, war, greed, drama and trauma. So Turn the saying around!!! Tell yourself, "As in Tango, so in life. . . I want to make my life like my tango--harmony in movement, balanced, connected to others and full of joy."

The silence of tragedy harms the next generation more than with families who know and tell the story of trauma. If this is true , then the connotations brought up in this article apply to our own nation's history as well. As a trauma therapist, I believe that fathers and mothers harmed by war who do not tell their children why they are distant parents cause a great deal of harm. Also, consider the genocide against Native Americans and the general ignorance about it. Consider the tragedy of slavery and how it still haunts us as a nation. We are doing better than Russia, but our silence is still "very loud," and it harms our future generations.
