Our goal is to join with others to create, and be a part of, something larger than ourselves. When moving together in a circle we form a living mandala.
The more in step we are with each other, the greater the resonance and feeling of unity. Notice if you are in step with the rest of the group. Usually, everyone's right foot should step at the same time, then everyone's left at the same time.
Some simple guidelines can make it easier for us to move together. Point your thumbs to the left when joining hands in the circle and there will be no fumbling and trying to decide which way to hold hands.
Take your time. All movements should be at the tempo of the music, with as much grace as we can manage. If a certain movement is given for a certain phrase in the chant, we normally complete the movement as we complete the phrase.
