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.

Our gathering tonight in Sydney

Our trip through the Kata Tjuta and Uluru regions. Photos can not do this place justice and there are many sacred places that are asked not to be photographed . They remain in the deep vast landscape of the heart : the wordless experience found in the presence of such majesty and power . 19 Dancers pilgrimaged and sang and danced the land including Allaudin Ottinger and Yasmin his wife from Kansas City ! We were an international crew experiencing many synchronicities . It was like riding a big wave in the desert! ... See MoreSee Less

This week we're focusing on the Zoroastrian and the Buddhist tradition in our Bondi dancesFriday the 13th April, we have the dances at the Centre for Peace and Meditation in Bondi on the theme of the Zoroastrian and Buddhist traditions.
I'm focusing on the Zoroastrian tradition in my cherag course at present, so I want to embody the tradition through the dances and Karen wants to embody the Buddhist tradition.
The dances make these traditions come to life through our bodies!

Come and dance and share food afterwards, so bring a plate.
It's at 15 Blair St Bondi at 7pm, we usually dance till around 9pm and then share food and conversations.
So we're following the vision of making peace given by Murshid Sam to Eat, Dance and Prayer together.

If this is true of dancing - what happens if we include singing and dancing together?
