Dances of Universal Peace @ SWIHA, Tempe

This Meetup is for anyone who likes to dance, sing, and learn about and celebrate the world's spiritual traditions while enlivening the heart and awakening the spirit.

We create the live music together!

Circling to share and explore, uplift, and celebrate the essential unity of the people of all cultural traditions, we embody prayer through dance, walk, and sacred phrase. Participants describe multiple personal and spiritual growth benefits of these simple dances that we joyfully share. Explore dances that lead us to meditative consciousness and inner peace. For more than 40 years in gatherings around the world the Dances of Universal Peace are a form of circle dance utilizing movement and sacred phrases from the world's spiritual traditions. These Dances have also been called, "Sufi Dancing."

No experience or partner required. Everyone is welcome!

Suggested offering: $10 (no one turned away!)

Please limit the wearing of fragrances to accommodate those with sensitivities. Bring canned goods or bottled water, if you can, to benefit those in need in our wider community. Thank you!

    The Dances are about entrainment: cultivating awareness around living in rhythm, in harmony, with others and with all beings, and by extension with Nature itself, with this whole, natural world. At the same time, we are attuning to the Infinite, the Source of us all and of all worlds.

    Research shows that children who sing the songs of other cultures become less inclined toward prejudice. Singing and dancing together requires us to operate beyond the sense of self-only, as we create the Dances together, in unity. The Dances of Universal Peace provide a way to interact and develop empathy with others in a way that does not require talking, just singing and moving. Come see for yourself!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
