Dances of Universal Peace – a weekend non-residential retreat with Wali and Ariene van der Zwan
Sat - Sun, 17th - 18th March 2012.
The theme, "Heart Travelling: the journey within" links to Murshid SAM's habit, which was to look at us from three levels of consciousness: the physical, the mental and emotional, and the heart level. The Dances of Universal Peace work so well, as they address us on all three levels and actually unify and unite them.
Dances of Universal Peace are a form of circle dancing where we sing short sacred phrases from various spiritual traditions (such as Jewish, Native American, Islamic, Christian) while doing simple steps like side-stepping or walking. You don't have to be an accomplished singer or dancer. The words, melody and movements are taught each time we do a dance. Wear comfortable clothes that allow for some movement. You will need flat shoes (no heels), or you can dance barefoot.

Saturday: 10.30 am to 9 pm.
Sunday: 10.30 am to 4.30 pm.
