  • Join us for the 25th annual Global Peace Dance, when the Portland Dances of Universal Peace circle will link ourselves with Dance circles throughout the world in one common focus in our prayers for peace. This schedule for this non-alcoholic New Year’s Eve event is:

    7 pm - Universal Worship Service
    8 pm – Dances Of Universal Peace
    9:30 pm – Potluck
    10:30 – Dances Of Universal Peace
    11:45 – Meditation
    11:50 – Sing “Peace Bells”

    Come for all or any part of the evening. For the potluck, please bring potluck food and non-alcoholic beverages. Celebratory/ethnic dress encouraged! Family-oriented: children are welcome! $15 - $30 sliding scale donation suggested (no one turned away for lack of funds).

    Our dances from many traditions will support the theme of peace, with a special focus on the Ram Nam Mantram.

    “The Ram Nam Mantra is thousands of years old, the melody itself, ancient. In those thousands of years, its vibration of peace has continually been fed into the atmosphere. Through our chants, we are ourselves continuing to feed that vibration of peace into the atmosphere, replenishing it in the Akasha and keeping it alive.”

    This event is about experiencing peace first-hand, actively creating peace in the community. Join hands in a circle of friendly people to dance simple movements while singing sacred phrases from the world's wisdom traditions. It will feed your soul, release stress and improve your immune system. Together we form a living energy mandala, and imbue it with a vibration of peace that radiates out to the world. Every dance is fully taught in minutes by certified dance leaders. No experience or partner necessary. Always live music! For more information: WE DANCE EVERY TUESDAY!

    Last year 70 people attended this fabulous non-alcoholic event - warm, glowing, friendly people charged with light, enthusiasm, fun and spirituality. A spacious, beautifully decorated hall - and a sumptuous potluck of hearty foods and tasty desserts to celebrate the birth of 2017!
