Ralph plays the drum and is an experienced dance teacher, accompanied by Vitalija with gitar.
No experience is required - you are invited to bring an open heart.
 
"An experience beyond words...
We move and breathe and sing together in a circle, holding hands, like one organism.
Like a cell in the body, remembering being part of something much bigger than the small self.
The separated individuality may dissolve into a blissful state of oneness with the group.
Simultaneous chanting and dancing are fundamental expressions of our creativity,
which gets inspired and stimulated through these Dances of Universal Peace.

The Dances of Universal Peace are a spiritual practice:
all chakras get involved or even activated.
A deep, soulful sense of joy may be felt.
Tears may flow, when the soul begins to remember it's deep longing...

The dances can be a bridge to awakening, connecting with the Divine.
Your voice may open up and your breathing can become deeper and free.
All sorts of things may happen during or after the dancing, often on a subtle level.
We usually hug each other. These hugs can be very healing and comforting..."

Cost: £15 (if that's too much for you: please give as much as you can afford - we don't want to turn anyone away because of lack of money.)

"I want to thank you so much for the dancing yesterday. You truly embodied the spirit of the dances in a way which I have not previously seen; and it was, indeed 'light and deep.' I felt very happy to be there. All in all, an excellent afternoon. " (Shan, London, 1 March '09)
