VENI CREATOR SPIRITUS

Come, Holy Spirit, Creator, come
from thy bright heavenly throne
come, take possession of our souls
and make them all thine own
You who are called the Comforter
best gift of God above
the living spring, the living fire
sweet unction and true love

HAG PESSAH SAMEAH ! HAPPY PESSAH !

Pessah is the celebration of freedom and the end of the enslavement of man by man.

All year long we can meditate individually on the Exodus from Egypt and its profound meaning , but on Pessah evening the message of liberty is proclaimed to all humans!

This triumph of freedom was celebrated by DANCE!

Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing (Exodus 15:20)

"THOU THAT DANCEST, PERCEIVE WHAT I DO, FOR THINE IS THIS PASSION OF THE MANHOOD, WHICH I AM ABOUT TO SUFFER"

Thursday of the Holy Week !

Christians remember the Last Supper which preceded the Passion of Christ

The apocryphal Acts of John present a unique testimony of Jesus dancing with his disciples on a very spiritual hymn , a food for dance and spirituality

Enjoy the poetry : (and enjoy also Gustav Holst's music! )

Glory be to thee, Father.
And we, going about in a ring, answered him: Amen.
Glory be to thee, Word: Glory be to thee, Grace. Amen.
Glory be to thee, Spirit: Glory be to thee, Holy One:
Glory be to thy glory. Amen.
We praise thee, O Father; we give thanks to thee, O Light, wherein darkness
dwelleth not. Amen.
95 Now whereas (or wherefore) we give thanks, I say:
I would be saved, and I would save. Amen.
I would be loosed, and I would loose. Amen.
I would be wounded, and I would wound. Amen.
I would be born, and I would bear. Amen.
I would eat, and I would be eaten. Amen.
I would hear, and I would be heard. Amen.
I would be thought, being wholly thought. Amen.
I would be washed, and I would wash. Amen.
Grace danceth. I would pipe; dance ye all. Amen.
I would mourn: lament ye all. Amen.
The number Eight (lit. one ogdoad) singeth praise with us. Amen.
The number Twelve danceth on high. Amen.
The Whole on high hath part in our dancing. Amen.
Whoso danceth not, knoweth not what cometh to pass. Amen.
I would flee, and I would stay. Amen.
I would adorn, and I would be adorned. Amen.
I would be united, and I would unite. Amen.
A house I have not, and I have houses. Amen.
A place I have not, and I have places. Amen.
A temple I have not, and I have temples. Amen.
A lamp am I to thee that beholdest me. Amen.
A mirror am I to thee that perceivest me. Amen.
A door am I to thee that knockest at me. Amen.
A way am I to thee a wayfarer. [amen].
96 Now answer thou (or as thou respondest) unto my dancing. Behold thyself in me who speak, and seeing what I do, keep silence about my mysteries.
Thou that dancest, perceive what I do, for thine is this passion of the manhood, which I am about to suffer.

Music by Gustav Holst

Neither the wine, nor a woman not even an idea have never troubled my whole being -flesh, mind and soul – as much as the dance and the star spangled sky.

A ritualistic circle which represents the joy of marriage where the priest followed by the groom, Bride and the witness dance to celebrate the holy matrimony. At this auspicious time friends and family throw rice on them which symbolizes prosperity and fertility. Dance as a symbolic joy!

“I believe that dance is the oldest, noblest and most cogent of the arts. I believe that dance is the most perfect symbol of the activity of God and His angels. I believe that dance has the power to heal, mentally and physically. I believe that true education in the art of dance is education of the whole man.”
— Ted Shawn

DANCE AND SPIRITUALITY

A permanent CID Program ( http://cid-world.org/spirituality/ ) Promoted by Paris Section CID

It concerns all dances, all spiritualities present and past as well any personal sensibility related to the sense of sacred

The International Dance Council(CID) official partner of UNESCO

Is the official organization of all forms of dance in all countries of the world. CID actions and projects are in line with UNESCO's fundamental objectives: Peace, Cultural Diversity and Dialogue of Cultures, Education for All, Safeguard of immaterial heritage.

CID ‘s president Professor Alkis Raftis dedicated the year 2019 to the spiritual dimension of dance. The 53d World Congress of Nassau (Bahamas) was devoted to this subject and from then on the program was launched.

The program has an unlimited duration, it is a constellation of events at a global level and its realization will depend on the inspiration of our artists and researchers around the world

The members of the CID will be able to contribute either by their studies on the subject or by the creation of choreographies on sacred music and especially by their exchanges.
