Sacred Spiritual Circle Dances, Bar Hill, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia, Led by Mike, Keith & Barbara
BELOW ARE THE Meditative & Inspiring Circle Dances & Songs we would have included in our May gathering on the theme: "Summer Awakening"

"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.

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



Mother Earth is a Great Big Ship that we are sailing on
Sailing on through Space and Time
Touch the Earth, Feel your Worth, Awaken to each New Rebirth
Open up your Heart and touch the Divine
(Blessed Be!)

Words: Avril Yospa-Harwood, Music: Rainbow Camps, Dance: Shamsia Sandra Sunfire

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
