Another Wonderful Evening of Dances!

A small group tonight, though with 4 (or 5) new to our circle – WELCOME!

1 – Om Ram Ramaya Svaha (Hindu tradition)

Om – core essence  of the universe vibration
Svaha – So Be It!
Collectively – Hail to the Perfection that is in Ram, and also within YOU

2 – Wise Earth (earth tradition)

3 – Dance of the Celestial Bodies (Earth/Oneness tradition)

I am the Earth, I am the Sky, I am light that shines from the eye.
I am the Moon, I am the Sun, Breath of the Universe, I am the One

4 – Kadosh Shemayiem (Jewish tradition)

Kadosh – Holy; actively creating Holy sacred space in our daily path
Shemayiem – Heaven; not in the future, someday, but right now, in the present!
(root Shem – Light; shows up in many languages and traditions as early as Zorastrian, 2500 bce)

5 – Responsory: Into Your Hands Oh Lord (Christian tradition)

6 – Custom Zikr (Islmic/Sufi tradition)

La Illaha Il Allah Hu – there is nothing but the One
Ishq Allah Mabudlilah – God is love, lover, and beloved

 

Leader/musician: Stephen

*** Note:  to other dance leaders – these may not be great references as we only had guitar for accompaniment, and a few called movements were simplified at times as the group was young to the dances.
