Music and movement play a large role in Master Beinsa Douno's teaching,
as means of attuning oneself to God through the cosmic rhythms of Nature. The
Paneurythmy, Sunbeam, and Pentagram movements combine music, movement, and,
ideally, a natural setting to join with others in a sacred circle for
self-healing and healing the world. Beyond the music for these exercises,
Beinsa Douno composed a substantial body of uplifting, transformative music,
for voice and instruments.

Paneurhythmy Live at Rila, 2003 - Every August, followers of
Beinsa Douno from around the world camp in the Seven Lakes region of the Rila
Mountains in Bulgaria, to dance Paneurhythmy, sing, hike, and celebrate the
wonders of Nature, God, and spiritual fellowship. The high point of the
celebration is the August 19 Paneurhythmy gathering on the plateau near the 5th
Lake, with many musicians in the center of the circle, surrounded by around one
thousand dancers in three circles of pairs. Much of the music has a "down-home"
feeling that may make it less than optimal for just listening. But we've found
that for dancing outdoors, the music is truly ecstatic. The next best thing to
"being there". Check out the legendary extended version of "How Happy We Are",
in the preview. $10 CD.

- Peter Deunov's PANEURHYTHMY
featuring Paneurhythmy in Rila, 1977
- with Gregory Kiossev and Maria Mitovska "This film was organized under the inspiration and guidance of
Krum Varzharov who became a disciple of Beinsa Douno in 1927 and witnessed the
presentation of the Paneurhythmy exercises. Although it was forbidden in
Communist times, Krum organized a group of young people and, together with
other disciples, passed on the teachings.... In 1977, out of concern that the
spiritual essence, inspiration, and visual pattern of the authentic
Paneurhythmy movements be preserved, two young students were selected to
demonstrate the Paneurhythmy movements as they had been performed by Peter
Deunov and were presented by His disciples." Although the film
was damaged in storage, substantial portions of each of the 28 movments have
been restored, and the essential grace and beauty of Paneurhythmy is fully
demonstrated. Scenes of Gregory and Maria dancing are interspersed with nature
video primarily from Rila, and commentary on the movements by Phyllis Thorpe.
