What we're about

From the outside it looks like we are holding hands, singing the Names of God from all around the world, and doing easy round dance forms.

From the inside we are having quick and radical shifts in awareness as an entire group. The Persian poet Rumi speaks of "the Wine of Love". Jesus speaks of "the Peace that passes understanding." The Buddha speaks of "the Emptiness", not as absence but as potentiality. These and more are available, not as poetic ideas but as direct experience. Easy and direct, all dances are taught as for beginners each time. We really work at not having an in-group and an out-group.

We believe that all religions can lead to direct experience of our Divine Source. We do not honor any particular path over another, letting effectiveness determine what is right for each person. What works is what's right. If you are interested in the adventure of the vast inner life of the Spirit then this is one of the many good ways to begin. For more info: www.dancesofuniversalpeace.org
