    Chants by Ralph

    Apart from the melodies listed above which came through Ralph, here are some chants,
    which have not evolved yet into a peace dance:

    Each of the Dances has it's own history - some came within a second while cycling in a happy mood, others gradually evolved...
    The process of creation, and "who created this dance?", is a bit of a mystery, and probably a co-creation of inspiration, intuition and experience. I would describe the process like: "The inspiration came into me - and the dance came out of me."
    In Ralph's case the background of many years of Sacred Dance / circle Dance has certainly been helpful.
    Having beeng on a spiritual path and practicing the Subud Latihan, or listening to "the still small voice within" in the Quaker Meeting, may also have helped the creative process.

    If you want to journey deeper into the dances or share them with others:
    Ralph is also supervising dance teachers, training to become a mentor - please contact Ralph.
