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.

Meditative Revisiting of "Oneness" - The Zikr of the Tender Heart

In and out movements of the circle in part 2 symbolise the beating of a heart
Originator: Allaudin Ottinger


October 3rd is the Eve of the Feast Day of St. Francis

Prayer of St. Francis, Patron Saint of Animals & The Environment
From "The Prayer of St Francis" - "Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace!"
"Dying" to the egocentric experiences of struggle, self-inflation or victimhood, opens us up to the soul-full experience of "eternal life". In this sacred circle dance, the life of the soul is symbolised by coming into UNITY (back-to-back with "another") to form an "angel". The angel's wings are formed by our outstretched arms (reaching out to, and flying along on, the spiritual life).

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.
