The Dances of Universal Peace
Since the beginning of time, communities have come together in a circle to dance, sing, share eternal wisdom,
join hearts and express the irrepressible divine nature of the human spirit...
Heart  &  Soul  Nourishment!
....with an attitude of mutual respect, tolerance which mixes joyful celebration with quiet thoughtfulness.
DUP heals, restores, revitalises and inspires the human spirit!

*"Let flow, Light of Water, Let Flow!"
[The Druid name for Autumn Equinox is "Alban Elfed" meaning 'Light of Water']

 


*"Salmon" - Autumn Equinox (Mabon) Song & Symbolic Dance
SO FLOWED AT LAST THE WONDER TO MY FEET
THE SALMON TO HIS WAITING SERVANT CAME
AND LEAVES ME TREMBLING FOR A JOY FULFILLED!

The 'Salmon of Wisdom' is a well favoured symbol of wisdom in Celtic mythology.
Honoured because it returns to its source, going against the flow of what is easy.
This resonates with those of us who attune to the Source of All before making a new life commitment.
Coming back after a summer of adventures, we mirror the salmon's homing instinct at the Autumn Equinox!
The words of this song come from a poem based on a legendary story about the Holy Salmon
published in "From Isles of Dream - Visionary Stories & Poems of the Celtic Renaissance"


*Meditative Walks: Energy Healing Movement Patterns of The Beatitudes in Aramaic

 
A Traditional Huna Shamanism Prayer Chant & Dance Honouring Mother Earth


Meaning of the Hawaiian Sacred Phrases in this Song...
E malama [LET US TAKE CARE]  Ika heiau [OF THE SACRED EARTH]  E malama pono [DO WHAT IS RIGHT]  Eh! [COMMITMENT]
Earth and Sky  -  Sea and Stone  -  We Hold this Land in Sacredness!

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
