What are Dances of Universal Peace (DUP)?

These are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements from the many spiritual traditions of the earth. They are meant to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and recognize it in others.

Building on the work begun by Samuel L. Lewis in the 1960s, they promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. There are neither performers nor audience: new arrivals and old hands form the circle as everyone sings and dances together.

DUP honor all spiritual paths, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, as well as the Aramaic, Native American, Native Middle Eastern, Celtic, Native African, and Goddess traditions.

RSVP Required. If you accept and then cannot come after all, please let me know by 1:30 pm on Saturday, so I am not paying for space if I have to cancel. Thank you!

Quadira is a Certified DUP Leader, Singer, Artist, and Certified Laughter Yoga Leader & Play Coach. She holds a Laughter Club every Monday at 5:30 pm at Inner Path in Nevada City. Visit her websites to learn more:

      I wondered where you were, Dion! It was a tiny, sweet circle, just 4 of us!

    I am looking forward to joining with Quadira. I will be learning three of my favorite dances, including one for healing.

      Thanks for the note, Sharon. I think you meant leading three dances, not learning. Hahaha! :-)
