Spring Renewal + Feast of St. Valentine, February

Saint Valentine's Day began as a celebration of the Christian Saint Valentinus who was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. During his imprisonment he healed the daughter of his jailer. Allegedly, before his execution, he wrote her a farewell letter signed "Your Valentine" [More].

SPRING RENEWAL
B'reshith Dance in Hebrew - Verse 1 of Genesis

WE SING & DANCE TO REMEMBER OUR CREATIVE POWER WHEN ALIGNED WITH THE DIVINE!

Reminds us of the spacious potential that was there in the beginning and still resides as a deep memory in the cells of our being. In the partner part of the Dance, we help each other clear space and let go of whatever baggage is not truly part of our pre-existing, primordial purpose in life.

Medieval translation: "In the beginning 'God' created heaven and earth".
'Elohim' is plural and only one of the names and personalities for "God" in the Old Testament.
Dr. Douglas-Klotz translation [www.lovehealth.org/books/genesis.htm]:
"In the beginning the One that is Many created heaven and earth"
Were YOU there at the beginning of time?

 
I Am Alive!!



Words & Music: Rabbi David Zeller. Movements: Dale Blindheim, Munir Reynolds, Yana Viniko
 


*Celebrating The Feast of St. Valentine: "Only Love is Flowing Here" [Sufi Zikr]
 

Out Beyond Ideas of Right and Wrong
Right and Wrong judgements have their place but...
excessive judgmentalism limits our capacity for connection & co-creativity.



Out Beyond Ideas of Right and Wrong
There is a field. I'll meet you there!
And we shall let the beauty we love...
Be what we dare!

We will be sharing a beautiful song + circle dance
based on this poem by the 13th-century Persian mystic: Rumi
 


*'Round and Round We Dance' - Joyful Weaving Dance
Round and Round We Dance, We hold each other's Hands and...
Weave our Lives in a Circle.
Our Love is Strong, The Dance goes On!

Beautifully symbolises our meetings with others as we journey along life's path!

 


*Last Line of the Lord's Prayer in Aramaic - Sung Movement Meditation on 'Cosmic Renewal'
Video of full prayer in Aramaic

May this song [prayer] renew itself from Age to Age and from Gathering to Gathering - May this be the Earth from which our New Growth will Spring!
 

"SAT NAM BIRTHDAY DANCE"

We hope everyone gets a chance to feel what it is like to be in the centre of a Blessing Circle like this!
Note: we will be doing the simpler, non-partner version of this dance.
