Paneurhythmy is a sacred dance.
Its music and movement were created by the Bulgarian spiritual Master Peter Deunov (1864–1944 Bulgaria). The word paneurhythmy signifies ‘supreme cosmic rhythm.’ Pan means ‘total, universal, cosmic’; eu means ‘true, supreme, emanating from the essence of all things’, and ritmia refers to ‘the correct regularity of all movement’.
The Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, who carried the Teaching forward, said,
“Everything is rhythm in the universe and the human being belongs to this great cosmic rhythm, and whether perceived or not, all biological or physical functions obey these rhythmic laws. Through lifestyle, thoughts, feelings and actions, these enter more or less in harmony with this universal rhythm.“
The music and the dance are merely attempts to attune ourselves with this cosmic rhythm. By creating the paneurhythmy, the Master Peter Deunov has given a method for harmonising ourselves with these rhythms.
