Dances of Universal Peace Zikr - A Gathering of Hearts

Dances of Universal Peace Zikr - A Gathering of Hearts
Now in Central Phoenix, Led by Gaile Rahmana

     Zikr  is a 1500 year old form of ecstatic chanting that utilizes sacred words and phrases and draws its practitioners toward awakening of the heart, enlivening of spirit, and deepening of awareness and feeling, compassion and joy. Zikr is moving, with chanting or singing, often enhanced by evocative rhythms and melodies with or without accompaniment of drums or musical instruments. Zikr has a deeply spiritual basis, yet there is no sermon, no dogma, nothing to join, no human leader to submit to. The Zikr offers each person the freedom to learn and develop their own spiritual values at their own pace in their own way. Zikr brings a softening and polishing of the heart, a practice of ecstasy.

Bring an open mind and a friendly, embracing heart  with a desire to stir the soul. Invite folks you know, and let’s renew our friendships, expand our hearts, and bring joy and clarity to the path of awakening.  Please join us!

"Forget yourself, get into the spirit of song, rise and fall on the waves of ecstasy, and express your pure being. Then you escape all differences, all divisions, all duality, all pain, all sorrow". Murshid Samuel L. Lewis

    A Full Moon weekend of Celebrating Heart Feb. 15

    This weekend we celebrate love in our life. We don’t need a lover to feel love. We don’t even need to have someone special to call our Valentine. Love starts with taking the time to know our own heart. Simply breathe in and out of the heart, listening. Sometimes in this awareness, my heart tells me about the one inside who feels depleted. Sometimes I hear what nurtures me or makes me feel alive. Sometimes I just rest in the calm of the greater Love. What’s better than using our heart to guide us? Let your heart lead the way and join us.

    Hi Friends,
    We love our new location! Wood floor, indoor lights on dimmers, well lit parking, an outdoor area. Please join us this Saturday. This is what the heart knows beyond all words: Beyond our small sense of things a magnificent light surrounds us, more than anyone could ask for.
