*"Salmon" - Autumn Equinox (Mabon) Song & Symbolic Dance

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"

"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
These are the Sons and Daughters of God

In My Lifetime - Peace, Peace on Earth!
*"Let flow, Light of Water, Let Flow!"

The Druid name for 'Autumn Equinox' is 'Alban Elfed' meaning 'Light of Water' because this moment is the gateway to the half of the year in which darkness dominates. Much as we love the long days, sunshine and warmth of summer we are invited now to surrender to [thus becoming co-creative with] the inevitable shrinking of light and warmth and the escalation of darkness and cold...

'Light of Water' refers to the spiritual wisdom quality of water to flow harmoniously as part of nature, with a minimum of pointless struggle or denial. To transit the next 3 months to Winter Solstice with EASE rather than UN-EASE we need to become like water and GO WITH THE FLOW - letting go our attachments to the delights of summer.

This sung Druidic circle dance was developed by Nickomo & Rasullah from the traditional Druid theme of symbolic movements embodying the chant of "Let flow, Light of Water, Let Flow!" and the mystical sound "A-I-O" - the Druid version of the Hindu "Om". The "I" in A-I-O refers to the equinoctial straight line between where the sun rises and sets. The 'A' refers to the sunrise points at the solstices as they bisect the circle of celebrants or stones, and the 'O' is the circle of dancers or ritual celebrants.

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
