THEME: Pentecostal Fire & Summer Solstice

THE PENTECOST EXPERIENCE
"Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind
and it filled all the house where they were sitting

and it sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit!"

Spiritual Inspiration: song + dance, developed by Karim Hadden
Based on the poem "Little Gidding" by T.S. Eliot [derived from the 14th Century vision of St. Julian of Norwich]
combined with the calls for merciful healing used by the people healed by Yeshua (Jesus) as reported in the Gospels.

 


Radhe Bol
Joyous 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]

 
In the Paths of Our Ancestors!

Aligning with the Turning of The Wheel of the Year


The New Moon of Diana, The Dark Moon Hekate, The Full Moon of Selene
All Light our Changing Way!
At Beltaine and at Lammas, Samhain and Candlemas
The Sabbats and the Solstices and Equinoxes Past
It's the Blood of the Ancients that Runs through our Veins!
and the Forms Pass...but the Circle of Life remains!!

[Originators: Charlie Murphy & Betsy Rose]

Roll, Mabon Roll
Roll Mabon Roll, Your burning wheel into the sky
And the grievances between us are but shadows
As in the Solstice light I take your hand!
The Celtic Sun God "Mabon" symbolises the Sacred King archetype, which appears over and over again in human spirituality. "Mabon" is a Welsh name deriving from Romano-British god Maponos whose name means "divine son" or "great son" - Son of the "Great Mother", another important ancient archetype.
 
The "Flying Bird" Solstice Circle Dance

Summer Solstice is the time of long hours of sun - up to 18 hours - which relaxes us and gives us plenty of time to get through the days tasks and still have time to spare - time to lie on our back and watch the clouds drift by, or watch the birds soaring high on the thermals of summer haze! The gentle sweeping melody of this dance captures that feeling of drifting aloft and the graceful lyrics compare that feeling to the experience of being "at one" with the divine.

The original lyrics were written in honour of the famous 19th-century Indian mystic, Ramakrishna, by one of his disciples. Ramakrishna was born into a poor family in rural Bengal but rose to become a priest of the Dakshineswar Kali Temple, dedicated to the goddess Kali. He attained samadhi [non-dualistic state of consciousness ] under the meditational guidance of an ascetic but also studied Islam and Christianity and said that they all lead to the same God!

[Dance Originator: James Nasrudin Burgess]

 

Dancing The Beautiful & Deeply-Moving Gayatri Mantra
in appreciation and gratitude for the Sun as it declines




translation...

"Om buhu, Om buru, Om buvaha, Om svaha" = The Great Mystical Utterance

Let us meditate on that excellent glory of the divine vivifying Sun
May He enlighten our understandings!


Dance created by by Bernie Heideman
 
Om Ram Ramaya Swaha - Solar Plexus Chakra - Hindu Healing Mantra

Om Ram Ramaya Swaha Meaning: "Know what to do and how to carry it out!" or "I am That" in the sense of "I am an aspect of God".
"Ram... is the seed sound for the manipura, or solar plexus chakra where tremendous healing energy often lies dormant. This mantra is used to awaken and activate the entire chakra and balance the energy currents that run down the left and right sides of the body. It prepares the chakra to be able to handle the inflow of kundalini energy that gives the chakra its power. Ra is associated with the solar current that runs down the right side of our bodies. Ma is associated with the lunar current that runs down the left side of our bodies. By repeating Rama...Rama...Rama over and over again, there is an opportunity to balance the two currents and their activity.

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
