Shakti Yoga Dances

Featured Video: Panis Angelicus

This Shaktidance is created to nurture from within.  The long slow sweeping circles move the body down to entwine into Self.  As you dance “Panis,” feel conduits of subtle layers, partaking of  ‘the bread of angels.   

Panis Angelicus is layered with historical richness.  The original verse was written by St Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century.  In 1861, César Franck composed the mass, Messe à trois voix, and in 1898, Camille Saint-Saëns set the text a motet.  The original Latin translates to:

May the Bread of Angels
Become bread for mankind;
The Bread of Heaven puts
All foreshadowings to an end;
Oh, thing miraculous!
The body of the Lord will nourish
the poor, the poor,
the servile, and the humble.

I sacrilegiously updated it here:

Oh Bread of Angels
Soul-nurturing Grace
Led by spirit ~Fed by love,
Bring closure to fear.
Oh, thing miraculous!
Our Goddess offers
Joy, peace, abundance
To all humankind
