POSTPONED - This event has had to be postponed and will be rescheduled for next year. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

"Paneurhythmy fills the human soul with life, strength, joy and beauty."
Beinsa Douno

Come and enjoy the beauty of dancing Paneurhythmy.

Paneurhythmy is a joyful, meditational dance which has a profound philosophy associated with it. It was created by the Bulgarian Teacher Beinsa Douno, in the Rila Mountains at the beginning of the 20th century. The music is inspiring and beautiful and most of the movements are easy to follow. Literally, the word Paneurhythmy, means ‘Supreme Cosmic Rhythm’.

Paneurhythmy relaxes the mind and body; it centres, balances and integrates us, and puts us in right relationship to other people, to nature and ourselves. Working with the energies of Nature, paneurhythmy is danced outside, 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 workshop is suitable for beginners and the more experienced. During the day, we will learn about the first part of the Paneurhythmy. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the background and ideas behind the dance. Later in the afternoon there will be an opportunity to explore the Stones with Stephen Thomas, a resident of Avebury.
