The Dances of Universal Peace
Since the beginning of time, communities have come together in a circle to dance, sing, share eternal wisdom,
join hearts and express the irrepressible divine nature of the human spirit...
Heart  &  Soul  Nourishment!
....with an attitude of mutual respect, tolerance which mixes joyful celebration with quiet thoughtfulness.
DUP heals, restores, revitalises and inspires the human spirit!

Sacred Spiritual Circle Dances Led by Mike, Keith & Barbara

Our Inspiring & Meditative Tantric Circle Dances & Sacred Songs will include...

Out Beyond Ideas of Right and Wrong
Right and Wrong judgements have their place but...
excessive judgmentalism limits our capacity for connection & co-creativity.



Out Beyond Ideas of Right and Wrong
There is a field. I'll meet you there!
And we shall let the beauty we love...
Be what we dare!

We will be sharing a beautiful song + circle dance
based on this poem by the 13th-century Persian mystic: Rumi


Dancing The Beautiful & Deeply-Moving Gayatri Mantra
in appreciation and gratitude for the Sun as it declines




translation...

"Om buhu, Om buru, Om buvaha, Om svaha" = The Great Mystical Utterance

Let us meditate on that excellent glory of the divine vivifying Sun
May He enlighten our understandings!


Dance created by by Bernie Heideman
 
Self-actualisation version of the Seneca tribe symbolic "Planting Ritual"
Building Resourcefulness & Flexibility via moving sequentially in the 5 elemental energy patterns (earth, water, fire, air, ether)

The five elements verses alternate with actions calling down the guidance & support of our "Upper World" spiritual helpers ["spirit guides"].

"Hava Nagila" Joyful folk song from Psalm 118


Let's Rejoice and be Happy!
Let's sing and be happy!
Awake bretheren with a happy heart!



Removing Obstacles to Creativity - Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha



Meaning of this ancient mantra: Om = the creative vibration of the universe; Gam = secret power sound of Ganesh - his "seed syllable" (bija mantra); Ganapataye = another name for Ganesh (Elephant-headed Hindu deity symbolising the clearing of obstacles); Namaha = we honour your symbolic significance

"I Am As God Created Me" 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?


Music by Michael Stillwater, Dance by Diane Olden

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
