"Hozuhni's words are as inspiring as her
dance, and that's really saying
- Karen Andes, "Belly Dancing
"Hozuhni is a glorious, radiant being that I
am blessed to have in my life! I told her, If you ever do your
own tarot, make sure the Star card looks like you, because that
is exactly who you are!!!”
“Hozuhni is one of those rare,
spiritually-inspired performing artists whose passion and power
reaches anyone who has the privilege of seeing her dance.”
- Lonny J. Brown, Ph.D.,
"Enlightenment in Our Time"
“Hozuhni, as a teacher, is a great inspiration
that shines through and empowers her students to shine. Hozuhni
is truly a beautiful spirit and shares it well with everyone she
comes in contact with. She is just outright contagious!!! You
can not be unhappy in her presence.”
- Sherry McDonald - Blue Lotus
Center, Orlando/ FL
“Hozuhni practices "Enlightenment Through Dance" and
adheres to a sacred approach. In addition, she is an excellent
dancer and teacher.. effervescent, bubbly and joyful. When she
says do a chest lift and say "sunshine" you feel it and shine.
Joseph Campbell urged us to "Follow Your Bliss;" Hozuhni says
"Dance and Become Your Bliss"

I learned so much from Hozuhni, not only
dancing, but spiritually. She is such a unique person, so full
of life, love and joy. I wish there were more women out there
like her. I felt like I was on a retreat this past weekend. I
felt so connected, and what a wonderful feeling I had after I
left. I still feel so good, which is unusual for me on a Monday
morning at work! I just wanted her to know how much I
appreciated the workshop and the fun. I feel like I've known
Hozuhni forever. Hozuhni was not only our teacher but she became
our friend. I will continue on, and I cannot wait for her book
to come out. I am telling all my friends about Hozuhni and my
wonderful experience. I hope she can come back out to see us

Surely, the Universe slowed down for us that
night, just so we could savor the drumming and dancing a little
bit longer than usual. Hozuhni’s Workshop gave the participants
a new perspective on our dance, and that means the world to me.
Hozuhni kept them moving and feeling, and they had such great
joy, it was like rejuvenation for them, so they could go back
out into the mundane world, and be a little bit happier, I
think. I guess I shouldn't talk for them, I am going by what
they have told me, and from my own personal experience. I had
some sort of epiphany on that weekend. I KNEW that the spiritual
approach works best for me in this dance form. Pure technique
without spirit is like a chimpanzee typing out letters on a
keyboard: there is no thought or soul behind the act itself.
The Enlightment dance book provides a
blueprint for incorporating mind, body and spirit into dance.
With the exercises, Hozuhni offers opportunities for the reader
not just to read but also to internalize the dance experience.
The book covers many areas of dance without burdening the
reader. An overview of the chakras, ecstatic dance, how to use
intention, use of props, meditation, etc will all help to
provide dancers with a more meaningful experience of movement.
Also, a wonderful use of metaphors and pictures that provide
testimonies to the joyousness of the dance. As a dancer and a
teacher this book have affirmed me as well as gifted me with
ideas and challenges to make my dance more meaningful.
