Easter - Ostara
The Goddess Ostara (Eostre) has been venerated for centuries as a symbol of our own capacity to SPRING BACK from a wintry place of deadness, low light and warmth - in an entirely nature-al dynamic of RE-BALANCING - to a place of joyful rebirth into new vitality!

based on this poem by the 13th-century Persian mystic: Rumi
Joyful Dance/Chant Celebrating the Interplay of Divine Masculine & Divine Feminine
The soul has a natural yearning for spiritual awakening...
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]
