Tears are the healing of grief
Tears are melting icebergs”

”In the Circle of life I experience a performance that is deeply moving. There the sorrow is as heavy as gravity and the happiness is as light as the dance of a butterfly. I am deeply moved by both.” (Christina Schenning, Minister Ansgarsliden Sigtuna)

It is fun to discover how much it is appreciated when we try different approaches in the church and to see all the new visitors in the sanctuary.” (Per-Jonas Odelberg, Minister Långsele, Graninge & Helgum)

The performance on Life and Death on All Saints’ Day was tremendously powerful. The dance itself expressed those emotions for which the worshipers cannot always find words. Åsa’s dance brought solace and opened a path to hope beyond time, as well as in the moment.”
