<B>Zar -- a spirit dance to cure mind and body</B><P> <BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- The drums start slowly -- tum dum ta tuum tum. Women toss their heads and sway to the beat. One repeatedly slaps her face. Another thumps her chest. A crippled man lying on the floor cries bitterly as he moves his upper body to the rhythm. <P>As the beat grows louder, a woman rises from a cross-legged position and flings herself into the music. Suddenly she lets out a shriek and collapses. The drumming goes on.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><A HREF="http://www.cnn.com/2001/HEALTH/05/28/healing.rhythm.ap/index.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>
