Dancing and singing from the heart: led by Sarah Dawkins and Andrew Clark.
Come and enjoy the beauty of dancing Paneurhythmy and singing in Nature.
Paneurhythmy is a joyful, meditational dance-exercise which has a profound philosophy associated with it. It was created by the Bulgarian Teacher Beinsa Duono in the Rila mountains at the beginning of the 20th century. Literally, the word Paneurhythmy, means ‘Supreme Cosmic Rhythm’. Working with the energies of Nature, it is danced outside, in the mornings, between spring and autumn equinoxes. The simple graceful movements each have a deep meaning and healing power on the dancers and the environment.
During the weekend, the singing will involve learning and sharing simple songs, chants and harmonies. The emphasis will be on singing from the heart. This helps us each to open our heart centre, which enables us both individually and collectively to connect with the flow of Universal Love. When this is done in harmony with Nature, we can make a heartfelt offering to the land and to all who are sustained by it.
This event will take place in the beautiful landscape of the Traquair House estate on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. We will also visit other special places in the Scottish Borders, including the grounds of the great Cistercian abbey at Melrose that was originally founded by St Aidan from Iona in 640, and the nearby Eildon Hills. This area is a focal point for the alta major chakra of the Grail Land of Europe. In the human body, the alta major chakra at the back of the neck is the gateway for Divine Inspiration. Geomantically, this landscape in the Scottish Borders appears to act as a similar gateway of inspiration for the Grail Land.
The theme of this weekend is inspiration and embodiment. When offered from the heart, dancing and singing can help us to become open to divine inspiration and to embody this inspiration as a prayer for the local landscape and beyond.
We will be staying in Howford House, a Georgian farmhouse on the Traquair House estate. Traquair House is Scotland’s oldest inhabited house dating back 900 years. We will have access to the 100-acre grounds, which includes ancient woodland, a walled garden, a hedge maze, and access to the River Tweed.
