Responses to the September dance
        Beloved DiAnahita,  Such a beautiful circle, a nourishing and nurturing gathering, so inspiring, heartful, beneficial, and healing.

Concentration is a state leading to contemplation.   And so one goes  through  the  meditative process to achieve fulfillment of every soul's purpose in life.

words to a dance we may do...
Ahavah Raba Ahavtanu
Amina Linda McMakin
With a great love, God has loved us. This beautiful phrase from the Jewish morning prayer service is a translation of the Hebrew "Ahavah raba Ahavtanu," reminding us that we're always in the love of God,  given and received unconditionally, and revealed through acts of compassion and kindness.
Hi Diana,
I have been thinking about the dance & how much we enjoyed it.  I loved the dancing--especially the one with the hands coming together in center heart chakra.                               Konnie
Everyone needs to experience Dancing Peacock Paradise and the DUP!  Much love to you and all our dancing friends.  Samantha
