A SPECIAL NOTE: We do the Dances of Universal Peace as prayer for the benefit of all beings. Here are some other ways you can help folks in your community:
Water donations sought to benefit Phoenix homeless (click here to learn more).
And, in order to honor and assist those in our community-at-large who may find themselves in need of some basic support at this time, please consider bringing some bottled water, canned goods, or other non-perishable food items to the Dances. We will deliver these offerings to St. Vincent de Paul and/or St. Mary's Food Bank.
The practice of Zikr is a heart-centered meditation in motion using simple phrases with easy movements to integrate body, mind and spirit through awareness of breath, sound, movement, and silence. Many say they find ease in freeing the mind, refreshing the spirit, and embodying gratitude and joy.
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. It's a softening and polishing of the heart.
Bring an open mind and a friendly, embracing heart and a desire and stir the soul. Invite folks you know, and let’s renew our friendships, expand our hearts, and intensify our joy. Please join us!
We cultivate compassion within and without.....

Resonating with sound and loving intention......
For the benefit of all beings.
