Theme: Spring Equinox - Ostara - Easter

This ancient festival time for both Pagans and Christians reminds us of the nature-al power of BALANCE i.e. of having a CENTRE of GRAVITY, combined with a RANGE of movement [EXPERIENTIAL RESOURCEFULNESS] around that - together creating the EBB and FLOW that we call LIFE!

HOW FAR FROM YOUR NATURAL POINT OF BALANCE ARE YOU RIGHT NOW? - Your 'point of balance' is not a place to stay stuck at, but a vital reference point telling you how far we will inevitably swing back, in due course, from the point where you are now - according to the natural law of gravity ["What goes up must come down!" and "What comes down must come up!"].

The Goddess Ostara (Eostre) has been venerated for centuries as a symbol of our own capacity to SPRING BACK from a wintry place of deadness, low light and warmth - in an entirely nature-al dynamic of RE-BALANCING - to a place of joyful rebirth into new vitality!

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
 

Radhe Bol
Joyful Dance/Chant Celebrating the Interplay of Divine Masculine & Divine 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]

 

"MOTHER EARTH IS A GREAT BIG SHIP!"

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!)

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
