"The spiritual dance has no other purpose, no other aim than to elevate [hu]mankind beyond self-thought, to joy, to bliss, to realization and to peace ... the sincere dancer is one of the best workers for universal harmony, and so, for universal peace..."
(Samuel Lewis, founder of the Dances of Universal Peace)

Experience the magic of the Dances of Universal Peace, their gentle uplifting and transformative effect:
Singing and dancing are elementary creative expressions of our being.
Focusing and using our bodies, hearts and souls brings our whole being into balance and harmony.
Rhythm is life: every step - every heartbeat - breathing in and out.
The human voice is a gateway to the soul.
Forming a circle is a symbol and reminder of us being part of a community. In synchronised movements of the group as one organism, the separated individuality may dissolve into a blissful state of oneness.

"Never trust a God who doesn't dance" (Neitzsche)

Ralph's spiritual home is in Subud, his religion is being a Quaker.
He was chairing the Cambridge Inter-Faith Group for 6 years.
He says about himself:
"I come from my head - and I am on a journey into my heart; that's why I sing."

Together with his wife Vitalija, who is on the Sufi path, they share the peace dances with openness, humour and devotionin a joyful, light - and yet deep way in Berlin, London, Norwich, Oxford & Riga.

PS: there is another peace dance group, meeting on the 1st Friday / month at 7:15pm, led by Margaret in the South Cambridge Friends Meeting House, 91 Hartington Grove.
