Relieve Stress... Connect With Your True Self...
Join us for an evening of moving meditations: simple circle dances using sacred phrases from many of the world's wisdom traditions. Dancers often report feelings of deep peace, grounding and
connection after a dance session.
These circle dances are called Dances Of Universal Peace.
Everyone participates. No experience necessary.
Each dance is fully taught in minutes by a certified dance leader.
We welcome beginners and all skill levels.
Everyone is welcome. No need to bring a partner!
Always live music!
(No one is ever turned away for lack of funds)
Please note: on rare occasions we need to cancel a dance at the last minute due to inclement or unusual weather conditions. We will always post any such cancellation on our cancellations page before 6 pm on the day of the dance. Please check this page at 6 pm if you are in doubt as to whether heat, snow, air quality or any other reason might cause us to cancel a dance on the day of the dance.
"I want to thank you again for the remarkable space you created on Tuesday...welcoming dances, chants and live music...inviting us all to "let go" of the stuff of our chaotic, confusing world, and sink into a deep space of engaging peace. Two days later I am still touched by and feel connected to this depth connection of peace that surprises me when it rises up to meet my breath...it is odd and interesting how letting this peace touch me at my depths causes me to feel alive in an intimate sort of way. I've had the good fortune to have personal immersion experiences into some of the cultures represented by Tuesday's dances. As we were dancing, it was as if the ancestral spirits from the various cultures were there dancing with us, as we collectively moved our feet and our bodies in the living, flowing rhythms that brought their people together so long ago."
"It is a beautiful thing to see how these dances are so much more than a spiritual practice, that these dances represent a way of life that so long ago had a way of weaving and unifying daily activities, work and spiritual expression as harmonious expressions of one life. So unlike our hectic modern world where these three facets of life are easily fragmented and become separate expressions that compete for our time, energy and resources. We can easily sink into alienating relationships to how we live our lives."
"I am so grateful you keep these rhythms alive in dance and song, to help us remember collectively how important this all is. This is more essential than ever now...as rapid shifts and changes are disrupting the lives of many. There is a great "invisible" need to step back into the rhythms of ife...that easily goes unnoticed. I love the way the Dances Of Universal Peace have of taking us into this deep immersion experience to release stress and tension, and to remember again...after we've had a long challenging experience...what peace brings back to our daily living."
"Thank you so much for what you do in this regard. Love and blessing to you both...and to your precious 'work'."
