Hoof and Horn, Hoof and Horn! All that Dies shall be Reborn!
Corn and Grain, Corn and Grain! All that Falls shall Rise Again!
A circle dance version of the ancient chant of our Celtic Pagan ancestors, created by Amara Karuna.
We do a somewhat different version from the one shown here and end it with a dramatic 'cone of power' release - recycling energy to the spiritual world so that we can continue to draw down energy from the spirit world on the months ahead, just as our ancestors did at their 'stone circle' gatherings all over the British Isles.
Spiritual Stillness - Let Me be a Channel for Peace!
October 4th is the Feast Day 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).
The Art of Inner Stillness - Creative Power of Simply Being - Experience Eternity!
|"Those Who Love and Loving Pour Forth Radiance"|
Connect to Your 'Inner Light' as Outer Daylight Recedes
Those who Love, and Loving Pour Forth Radiance

| 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.
