*"Let flow, Light of Water, Let Flow!" [Play short clip]

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 Vedic "Om" sound. 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.

*"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"

 
Building Autumn Vitality: Ya Hayy! Ya Haqq!

'Hayy' (arabic) means LIFE FORCE - similar sacred words in Hebrew & Aramaic going back thousands of years.
'Haqq' is the TRUTH (authenticity) which arises when 'Hayy' is embodied, the related word in Hebrew is 'hokhmah', the Holy Wisdom or Sacred Sense that gathers all the disparate voices within us to form 'I am'.
'Haqq' is also related to the Egyptian/Persian 'hikmat/hekmat' meaning natural wisdom.
