Divine Beauty

Divine Beauty

Last summer, my husband, Akiba and I went on a pilgrimage to Portugal. The brief film Pilgrimage journies through images of innocence, strength, receiving, giving, sharing, gratefulness and peace to culminate in an image of life~giving beauty. It is our hope that these images help to refresh your spirits as they did ours. As we approach Thanksgiving, may we all walk closer to the Divine Beauty described in the Native American song and dance, May I Walk With Beauty. 

May I Walk With Beauty from Dances of Universal Peace ~ the Native American Tradition ~ Divine Beauty ~

  1. ‘May I walk with beauty before me’ – Walking in a circle in a clockwise direction with arms outstretched in front of the body with upturned palms.
  2. ‘May I walk with beauty behind me’ – Continue walking in a circle in a clockwise direction with arms outstretched behind the body with palms facing down.
  3. ‘May I walk with beauty above me’ – Continue walking in a circle in a clockwise direction with arms lifted to the sky.
  4. ‘May I walk with beauty below me’ – Continue walking in a circle in a clockwise direction as arms lower to the sides of the body with palms facing the earth.
  5. ‘May I walk with beauty’ – Continue walking in a circle in a clockwise direction with a sense of heightened beauty.
  6. Variations may include other movements expressing Divine Beauty.
