| 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
