Dances of Universal Peace

In the Dances of Universal Peace we take sacred phrases from the spiritual traditions of the earth, link hands in the circle of life, and dance, chant and pray for peace, joy, upliftment, and the elevation of our consciousness. We celebrate and acknowledge that which unites us, the breath of unity. We honor the many paths that lead Toward the One and we come to understand and honor ourselves and each other more deeply.

event options--single session, weekend, or week long retreat.

Dancing the Heavenly Abodes

This powerful cycle of dances is based in The Four Immeasurables--The Brahma Viharas, one of the most important prayer/contemplations in Mahayana Buddhism: Loving Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy and Equanimity. It is said that the realization of these goals makes life truly heaven on earth. These dances and tunes are simple and ecstatically to the point.
