we love Devotional chanting, and we know 100s of chants and accompany them with drum and guitar.
We started a monthly chanting group Wednesday evening in the attic of our home - see entry above or on the Calderdale Peace Dance and Chanting page. You are welcome to join us and experience the power and magic of devotional chanting. Please e-mail rainbowralph[AT]gmail.com, and you'll be invited to our next chanting.
The Dances of Universal Peace (DUP) (combining chanting with movement) are Ralph's and Vitalija's passion. We are both mentors-in-training for the DUP and accompany the dances with drum & guitar. Ralph has created a few unique dances. Ralph & Vitalija have led DUP groups in Cambridge, London, Norwich & St. Neots; since end of 2012 they have started new DUP groups in Hebden Bride (1st Sat / month) and Todmorden (2nd Sat / month). We hope to establish dance circles in Leeds & Manchester.

Contact Ralph & Vitalija.
We both love mountains and miss a hilly landscape in Cambridge.
We discovered, that some of our dear Dances of Universal Peace friends live in or around the Calderdale area. We visited them, and we were welcomed with open arms and open hearts. When we visited Hebden Bridge, both of us felt very happy there - and everyone tells us, that Hebden Bridge would be the ideal place for us.
What really matters in life for us is the heart - so we hope to find some real heart connections.
2012 is the year of big changes...
We are excited - and a bit sad to leave behind some friends, home care clients, gardening customers, several peace dancers, the house cat Felix and the re-designed garden.
And we are a bit tense: we have hardly any savings, no home and no work (yet) in Calderdale.
We started packing, radical de-cluttering and re-writing CVs...
If you like to help us, please send your positive thoughts / wishes / prayers, that we'll find the right work and place to live.
Any help or hints from you is appreciated.
We are both open to new and unexpected turns in our lives.
Ralph & Vitalija, September 2012
Below is a poem from Herman Hesse, which encouraged us to be courageous and - finally! - move to Hebden Bridge.
(in 2004 we did consider moving to Riga / Latvia).
