Dancing The Deep Hum


Dancing the Deep Hum:

one woman’s ideas on how to live in a singing, dancing universe.

by Connie Pwll Walck Tyler

Leaping through theology,
pirouetting across string theory,
lunging into politics, social justice issues,
and the environment,
she spins her way toward a covenant
for living in our world.

In Dancing the Deep Hum, Connie Pwll examines the sometimes delightful and sometimes painful lessons she has learned in her sixty-five years of life, and humbly presents some ideas about how to live life joyfully.
Weaving in and out between the personal and the public, the individual and the whole – the universe, the infinite, and the here and now, she searches for the definition of that unnameable something that hums.
She uses her own experiences, her experiences through the stories of others she has met, found in books, film and the media, to set out a set of principles for living that just might bring us personal happiness while moving us toward a solution to the world’s ecological and social justice problems.
