During his imprisonment he healed the daughter of his jailer. Allegedly, before his execution, he wrote her a farewell letter signed "Your Valentine" [More].

|Hoof and Horn - Connecting to the Cycles of Life|
A Dance of Universal Peace honouring the Celtic Tradition of Hunter [Horned God] & Gatherer [Green Man]
Hoof and Horn, Hoof and Horn! All that Dies shall be Reborn!
Corn and Grain, Corn and Grain! All that Falls shall Rise Again!
A circle dance version of the ancient chant of our Celtic Pagan ancestors, created by Amara Karuna.
We do a somewhat different version from the one shown here and end it with a dramatic 'cone of power' release - recycling energy to the spiritual world so that we can continue to draw down energy from the spirit world on the months ahead, just as our ancestors did at their 'stone circle' gatherings all over the British Isles.
"WISHI TA" Native American River Song
Singing of quiet swirling eddies and rushing currents - urging us to balance flowing motion with stillness!
[Hear Audio Sample on: A Gift of Song by Brooke Medicine Eagle]
"I Am As God Created Me" - Self-Purification from "A Course in Miracles"
Are YOU getting the ACCEPTANCE, RECOGNITION & VALIDATION that you need and deserve?
...Why leave it to others?...
Why not start NOW to build and support your own self-esteem?...
Your own security and your own self-confidence?

| Video Overview of the "Dances of Universal Peace" |
We dance simple steps and movements (including sacred hand gestures called "mudras") which symbolise sacred wisdom and divine-connection themes. The movements promote health and wellbeing because they energise and balance the body energy centres (chakras) and engage heart, mind, body, soul and emotions in a holistic synergy.
As we dance we repeatedly chant brief sacred, or other wise, healing or inspirational, "Mantras". These mantric phrases come from a range of languages and sacred traditions or moving, inspiring poems. Apart from the wisdom, love and uplifting spirit contained in these phrases, the vibrations of their sounds have the capacity to resonate in particular areas of our energy system - potentially clearing energy blocks and bring energy to "deadened" areas of our energy system, physical and emotional body.
The overall effect of the dances and chants is to promote relaxation, clear negativity, relieve depression or anxiety, and uplift mood.
The Dances of Universal Peace - U.K. Network: UK DUP
The DUP dances, chants & wisdom have been developed from a range of spiritual traditions:
Buddhist, Christian (Taize & Aramaic), Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan (Celtic, Native American, African, Hispanic), Sufi etc
