Presenting: Dances of Universal Peace
Music, movement, song and prayer are the universal forms of human expression bringing communities together at times of celebration and enriching everyday life. The Dances of Universal Peace are a profound, cross-cultural way to touch spiritual essence through group meditation. Using sacred phrases, chants, music and movement from the many sacred traditions of the earth, the dances promote peace and integration personally across the globe. From the beginning of time, sacred movement, song and story have brought people together – at times of seasonal ceremony and celebration, as part of everyday life and life passages, in daily renewal and meditation, etc… The Dances of Universal Peace are part of this timeless tradition of Sacred Dance. As in these timeless mystic traditions, the Dances use simple music, lyrics, and movements to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and others. They are like a walking meditation. No musical or dance experience of any kind is required and everyone is welcomed to join in. Participation, not presentation, is the focus. No special attire is required, although comfortable, loose-fitting clothing is best. Participants join hands forming a circle with the Dance leader and other musicians in the centre. The dances are easy to learn, and an experience of joy, connecting us with the Divine through our heart connection.
