Sacred Spiritual Circle Dances Led by Mike, Keith & Barbara
Our Inspiring Sacred Circle Dances & Sacred Songs for the ancient British festival of Beltane will include...

"May the Circle Be Open! - But Unbroken!"

From "Ancient Mother" Album by Robert Gass & On Wings Of Song

 
"The Fires of Beltane Kindle the Night! - A Fun Fertility Dance!"



Beltane marks the start of the warm months of the year, the beautiful 'greening' of the countryside and the blossoming of the May Tree [Hawthorn]. Traditionally, 'young bloods' would leap the ceremonial Beltane fire to bring luck to their lives, especially before a journey or a wedding or, for maidens, to bring a husband, or for a young couple, as Green Man and May Queen, to seek the fertility that would bring the joy of children into their life together.

[Dance Originator: James Nasrudin Burgess]
 


*"The Beltane Brand" - A sacred circle dance embodying a Celtic Wish-fulfilment Practice



In the Paths of Our Ancestors!

Aligning with the Turning of The Wheel of the Year


The New Moon of Diana, The Dark Moon Hekate, The Full Moon of Selene
All Light our Changing Way!
At Beltaine and at Lammas, Samhain and Candlemas
The Sabbats and the Solstices and Equinoxes Past
It's the Blood of the Ancients that Runs through our Veins!
and the Forms Pass...but the Circle of Life remains!!

[Originators: Charlie Murphy & Betsy Rose]



*Meditative Breathwork & Walks: Self-expressive Energy Cultivation Patterns of Sun, Mars & Venus
Which relate to harmonising Solar Plexus & Heart chakras
Jarring lurches between chakras 3 & 4 occur in infatuation-collapse ["Hell hath no fury...!"] & Love/Hate Co-dependent Relationships


Transformation of stuck states of Frustration or Suffering via Energy Alchemy


"Tall Trees, Warm Fire!" Action Song

From the "Fly Like An Eagle!" Album

Tall Trees, Warm Fire!
Strong Winds, Deep Water!
I feel it in My Body!
I feel it in My Soul!


Fire Over the Earth!
By Fire that is Over the Earth...and the Fire that is Under the Earth
And the Fire in the Hearts of Heroes!
One Mind, One Heart, One Desire for the Shining Ones of TírnanÓg!
TírnanÓg meaning "Land of Youth" was the old Celtic word for the Spirit World.


Appreciating the Beauty of a Summer Morning - "Morning Has Broken"


 
Gaelic Melody adapted by Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam/Steven Demetre Georgiou
English Words created by Eleanor Farjeon

Om Ram Ramaya Swaha - Solar Plexus Chakra - Hindu Healing Mantra

Om Ram Ramaya Swaha Meaning: "Know what to do and how to carry it out!" or "I am That" in the sense of "I am an aspect of God".
"Ram... is the seed sound for the manipura, or solar plexus chakra where tremendous healing energy often lies dormant. This mantra is used to awaken and activate the entire chakra and balance the energy currents that run down the left and right sides of the body. It prepares the chakra to be able to handle the inflow of kundalini energy that gives the chakra its power. Ra is associated with the solar current that runs down the right side of our bodies. Ma is associated with the lunar current that runs down the left side of our bodies. By repeating Rama...Rama...Rama over and over again, there is an opportunity to balance the two currents and their activity.


[Dance by Bernie Heideman]

 
For the Beauty of the Earth! For the Glory of the Skies!




Based on the traditional hymn
Words: Folliot S. Pierpoint, Music: Conrad Kocher, Movements: Hayat Rubardt

 

A Celtic Parting Blessing - "May the Road Rise with You!"


"Blessed Be!"
This ancient Celtic Blessing draws on the 4 Elements of Earth, Air, Water & Fire
and embodies the 3 key aspects of a Parting Blessing...

Sadness (that our time together is over)
Well-wishing (for each other's future)
Appreciation (for who you are, and for being part of my life's journey!).
 We incorporate this old saying into a beautiful Blessing Ritual circle.

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
