Issue: November 2012

In the mid 90ís Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, Wandering Wolf the Spiritual Elder of the Mayan People came to Britain for the first time. Having been passionate about Mayan astrology for many years, it was a great honour to cook for him, being with him, receiving healing and wisdom teachings.

Of course 21.12.12 and the end of one of the Mayan calendars was talked about. He told us, his people had never given out all of the wisdom of the calendars, as it was only handed down to their people. No one really knows the end of the longest calendar as it is over 5,000 years old, too long to know. Some said 28.10.11, - it was certainly a good day for ceremony! Now we are weeks away from the next date.  This date has been picked up all around the world in film, book and seen as prophesy, gaining power and force over the years. ‘The end of the world” some said!

Lets face it, its doubtful! However we are living through the end of the world as we knew it. When we look around at the plight of the Bee’s and possibly our beloved Ash, the weather changes  and what’s happening with banks, pensions, rising costs, and the demise of some who were seen as ‘good’. Thankfully some of this is creating a consciousness of ‘using less’ rather then getting more.

So the 21.12.12 snow ball has rolled through many years gaining size. What ever this gate way is, it has gained momentum which can be used and enjoyed.  So when Ya’Acov suggested Dec ’12 for our next Manchester MM dance week end it fit perfectly. Lets dance says Hafiz

Every child has known God,

Not the God of names,

Not the God of don’ts,

Not the God who ever does anything weird,

But the God who knows only four words.

And keeps repeating them saying:

“Come dance with me, come dance.”

Dancing the dance towards balance, as what’s  important is our truth, that which resonated with self and beats inside. To be embodied and in movement is a potent path to this place. Raising the awareness through dance and positive change.

Ya’Acov will be in  Manchester 7th-9th December with Circle and the Sword, the dance of polarity. We will be dancing to create space for healing, bringing creation to where it is needed. To help us to re-member along with others all over the world. You are welcome to join us in our dance space, there is a place for you. Perhaps a potent preparation for the 21.12.12 gateway.

What will you be doing 21.12.12, we’ll be dancing, the room has been booked for years!
