With Sarah Dawkins
at Unitarian Chapel, Warwick
Friday 30 June from 10.30am till 4.00pm
Paneurhythmy is a joyful, meditational exercise-dance originating in Bulgaria, arising from the work of the mystic Beinsa Douno. Literally, the word Paneurhythmy, means ‘the movements and rhythms of the universe’.
Working with the energies of Nature, paneurhythmy is danced in the landscape, in the mornings, between the spring and autumn equinoxes. The simple, graceful movements each have a deep meaning and healing power on the dancers and on the environment.
The dance involves gentle exercise to music linking our mind and our body, relieving stress and tension, relaxing ourselves physically, emotionally and mentally.
During the day we will learn the movements of the first part of the Paneurhythmy and the preliminary exercises, and learn more about the background and ideas which are embodied in the movements of the dance and the philosophy of Beinsa Douno (Peter Deunov). We will be dancing in the beautiful Unitarian Chapel and garden.
Please bring a packed lunch – refreshments will be provided. £25 suggested donation
Sarah Dawkins first danced Paneurhythmy in 1980s, learning the movements through the Scottish School of Paneurhythmy which brought Bulgarian dancers to Scotland. Sarah travelled several times to Bulgaria to dance in the Rila mountains. Sarah has incorporated the dance into many pilgrimages which she focalises alongside her husband, Peter Dawkins, throughout Britain and Europe.
