Dances of Universal Peace

Dances of Universal Peace

Sacred circle dances connecting heart-to-heart and hand-to-hand as we sing and honour the different spiritual traditions honouring the One.

The Dances of Universal Peace put into our hearts and bodies the awe of living, the love of the universe, the experience of community, the delight at the breath we all share, the coming together of the cosmos, psyche and deep ecumenism that the human race yearns for today.
In the pressing need to redeem worship today, the Dances of Universal Peace play a pivotal role. Because they relate macrocosm with microcosm ( universe with psyche), they provide empowerment to heal and to celebrate, to pray in a curved and cosmological manner, to include body at the centre of worship once again—Matthew Fox, author of “Original Blessing and the Coming of the Cosmic Christ..

 

.

The Dances of Universal Peace are simple circle dances where we sing songs from the many different spiritual traditions, which can be both joyful and meditative, leading to inner and outer peace and a change of state in our beingness

They were formerly known as Sufi Dances, but are now an international movement dedicated to Peace through the Arts . See www.dancesofuniversalpeace.org
We do the dances locally and internationally and I am a mentor for this practice , and a member of the Mentor Teachers Guild.

Dancing in Adelaide  with Anahata from USA and centre Dance  leader and mentor Amrita,

Comment on Facebook

Used to do this in NZ :)))

Written by our secretary Amrita:
"I have realised that 2017 marks 25yrs of our Dances of Universal Peace
network in Australia. ( there were dance circles before this date but
the actual network developed from 1992)

I have read the first Dance journal from 1992 which was printed and
compiled by the Canberra Dances of Universal Peace group
saying..........

" Welcome to our first Australian Journal of the Dances of Universal
Peace. A networking meeting was held during Amida's week of Training,
resulting in a unanimous agreement to form an Australian Network of
the Dances of Universal Peace' ( 1992)

So if my maths is correct this make it 25yrs.......

So let us celebrate the seeds and harvests of this beautiful path
toward peace....
perhaps in our circles around Australia we can celebrate this journey
with our communities.......

may we enjoy each other, celebrate the journey....

We have many 'Elder keepers of Wisdom 'in our community who have
journeyed from the beginnings of the dances and I would like to
acknowledge you and encourage everyone to listen to each others
journey.

In deep gratitude to the linage of teachers and Murshid SAM.

'In my lifetime peace in every heart
in my lifetime , peace peace on earth'
