Click the View Vlog link or the picture above to see the Zen Mix.  Here we look at the hand movements in psychedelic dancing.  Move the hands as if you are conducting energy – or at the mercy of the forces of groovity!  The easing and spreading of fingers in constant flow of 3D space is good for the carpal tunnel and median nerve.  At the same time the hands can be alluring to  your partner or partners!  Entice, tell a story – HYPNOTIZE!

This Zen Mix video is superimposed on a node globe picture showing growth towards energy – like a tree!  See Nodism for more information.  Made with Zen Mix – http://www.zenmix.com

For years, Inventor Dan Zen has been doing psychedelic dancing as exercise and encourages everyone to try it out.  As you watch any of the psychedelic dancing videos below – get up out of your seat and give it a go – and then – hey, start your own Woodstock!

Psychedelic dancing is a free-form flow of fingers, arms, head and trunk of body with a swaying of the legs and a gyration of the hips.  It is great for pumping air through the lungs and stretching in a creative manner.  As such, if you are finding your Thai Chi a little repetitive and want more cardio than Yoga… give it a whirl.  It is easier to do than belly dancing and it gives you expressive freedom.

We hope that Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock movie has some wild dancing scenes – and mood and freedom meme the youth of  the day.

Here are the sets through the last year or two… enjoy!  And get out of your seat!

Psychedelic dancing as exercise set to the psychedelic filming of sixties album covers in high exposure darkness.  This features a Zen Mix on top of a Zen Mix.  You can replace the image field with a swf in this case another Zen Mix of background video on a blank picture.  You can use the file links at the bottom of the mix to see what I mean.

Caribou is playing the feature song.  They have a couple more I’d like to dance to too and there was a good one a while back.  They are from Dundas – as am I.  They are currnet – I think this song came from their album before their last one currently.

We talk about getting down in this mash of mixes.  It would be a cooler world if everyone with headphones on got down as they walked along the sidewalk and halls instead of walking like a zombie.  Well okay… walking like a real zombie has a bit of getting down involved in it.

Give it a go!  And if you want – make a parody – anything – try out Zen Mix.  This was done in an hour on a canon $160 point and shoot.  It is what you shoot and then the blend modes in Zen Mix – the free online vlogging tool at http://www.zenmix.com

Enjoy!

The movie The Love Guru is coming out soon – looking forward to it!

All gurus of love psychedelic dance as one of their forms of exercise.

Dan Zen dances to The Garden – a social environmental Indian / Arabian / Persian sounding a Capella yodeling psychedelic song! Please see the video on YouTube. Or download the song from SoundClick. Or visit the Dan Zen page on facebook.

Dan Zen wears his San Francisco Groovy Guru robe. The one he wore for the International Groovy Day poster. Should we choose a day for that? Or should it just be any day? Oh… also check out the Love Mash – the robe shows up there too and it would be cool if some more people made Zen Mixes and maybe someone will make us a love mash!

Dan Zen also “starred” in a movie called the Guru Monster Movie. Some of that can be seen pictorially on Thee Gnostics mySpace page – more to come as TheeGnostics.com site happens.

In 1996, Dan Zen traveled to San Francisco and wore a guru robe – quite a beautiful traditional green robe with yellow embroidery. He was at the Macromedia Conference where Shockwave was unveiled. A flower lei held his festival pass. An Indian guard, after much deliberation, came up smiling and said, “You know… in my country… the women wear those robes”.

Get dancing people! Loosen up – no steps to follow – you can’t go wrong and it feels great – puts you in touch with your body and nobody has to know! Unless… you start vlogging it with Zen Mix!

This is a meta view of Psychedelic Dancing as Exercise. In the post we suggest that if you are watching a Zen Mix of Psychedelic Dancing as Exercise then why not push back your chair and dance to it! You can even push back your chair to this one again featuring the music of Caribou – as it shows the last episode as an example.

An amazing new song by Caribou from Dundas, the Psychedelic and Spacerock capital of Canada with bands like Battleship Ethel, Simply Saucer, Thee Gnostics, etc. This mix features Opartica as the overlay from http://www.opartica.com, the Dan Zen online Op Art maker tool.
