“Dunya McPherson’s art embraces many media and many dimensions. The wonderful photographs of tea, set for Dunya and/or guests, is a clue to how present she is in her work, and how welcoming.
It is appropriate to be sending you this note and these images on the Solstice, a day so significant that human cultures mark and celebrate it in all imaginable ways, a day whose significance is the clue it provides to our place in the cosmos.
Dunya’s primary medium is the body, in dance, seeking an understanding of its connection to the rest of everything without and within. These quiet teas suggest a measure of the peace and awareness that her experience shares.
I hope you enjoy these images, and call your attention to the information below about the new book that Dunya has just published about her practice – “Sojourn the Inner Heaven: Movement Meditations for Awakening”.
Wishing you happiness, peace and light on the Solstice and the new year it introduces.”
