Sacred Spiritual Circle Dances, Bar Hill, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia, Led by Mike, Keith & Barbara
Our Meditative & Inspiring Circle Dances & Songs will include...

B'reshith Dance in Hebrew - Verse 1 of Genesis


Reminds us of the spacious potential that was there in the beginning and still resides as a deep memory in the cells of our being. In the partner part of the Dance, we help each other clear space and let go of whatever baggage is not truly part of our pre-existing, primordial purpose in life.

Medieval translation: "In the beginning 'God' created heaven and earth".
'Elohim' is plural and only one of the names and personalities for "God" in the Old Testament.
Dr. Douglas-Klotz translation []:
"In the beginning the One that is Many created heaven and earth"
Were YOU there at the beginning of time?

Radhe Bol
Joyful Dance/Chant Celebrating
The Divine Interplay of Masculine & Feminine

The soul has a natural yearning for spiritual awakening...
to be re-united with the Source from which it has become separated

This mantra is a tribute to the legendary Hindu avatars of Radha and Krishna. Radha is a milkmaid who represents the embodiment of perfect human devotion to the Divine. Govinda is a name for Krishna which means "the one who tended the cows". Bolo is "sing the praises of." The love between Radha and Krishna is the ideal of Love, absolute surrender of individuality in the case of Radha and absolute divine grace in the case of Krishna. Radha's yearning for union with her beloved Krishna can be seen as the soul's longing for spiritual awakening, to be re-united with the Source from which it has become separated. The divine interplay between Krishna and Rada symbolises "Spirit and Nature dancing together".  [Dance originator: Philip "Tansen" O'Donohoe]

*"WISHI TA" Native American River Song

urging us to balance flowing 4th Chakra (Solar Plexus) Drive with 3rd Chakra (Heart) Stillness!

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!

[Guitar Arrangement: Brian Dina]

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

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
