As Hafiz said, ‘Lanterns hang from the night sky so that your eye might draw one more image of love upon your silk canvas before sleep. Words from Him have reached you and tilled a golden field inside. When all your desires are distilled you will cast just two votes: To love more, And be happy.
Take the sounds from the mouth – flute of Hafiz and mix them into your seed pouch. And when the Moon says, “It is time to Plant,” why not dance, Dance and Sing? ‘
-Hafiz ‘s “Your Seed Pouch, ” p 41 in The Gift, Poems by Hafiz, Translated by Daniel Ladinsky, 1999 Penguin, New York 333 pp.
It’s time to plant, in this season of new beginnings! So please come dance and sing with us at Columbia’s DUP this coming Friday 9/5 , 7-9 pm at 3600 Beverly Drive, Columbia SC 29204 [see directions* below.] Our usual leaders will teach and lead walks of the ancient elements, as well as the dancing and singing. Each chant and dance is a practice that works through you, like a seed of love, happiness, peace and healing. The chants and dances are inspired by various spiritual traditions. We will also share some prayers and blessings.
After dancing, we socialize over refreshments. Small donations accepted. For more info, contact Marguerite <email@example.com>, 803-743-0731.
