Sacred movement and song have brought people together to restore hope, overcome differences and celebrate unity. The Dances of Universal Peace are part of this timeless
We dance to experience and express the beauty of our hearts through song, music, chant and movement. We move to harmonize our bodies, voices and thoughts as a chorus of Universal Peace. We open ourselves to feelings that flow as a result of being in a circle that expresses the rhythm of Sacred Unity. We join the circle to be mindful of our home in the melody of Breath, Heart Beat and Earth. We gather to remember and honor all people and traditions of the world that have come before us, that are present now and who will come after us. We hold hands as a circle to be the presence where heaven and earth meet and vibrate through us as the music of love and light. We sing in a circle as a symphony of cosmic sound that sooths and heals our individual and collective wounds. We create a refuge of blessing. We bless each other and the world to restore our wholeness and our potential to sprout acts of compassion for all beings.
