DANCES OF UNIVERSAL PEACE with Jilani and Robert – Meditation in movement and music.

Simple Dances and Chants to Delight the Heart and Feed the Soul!

Sometimes we feel troubled by everything that is going on in the world, and don’t know what to do or where to turn. These sessions can help with finding peace, joy and connection during these difficult times – they may even be a place of refuge when you find yourself in times of trouble.

Let us guide you in these simple body prayers, moving in a circle, accompanied by beautiful live music on guitar and viola. This is meditation that involves our whole being, inviting us to experience connection with each other and with the divine. The Dances of Universal Peace use simple and beautiful sacred chants drawn from many world traditions, combined with gentle yet powerful movements. We teach all the movements, words and chants carefully each time, so beginners can easily join. The depth of peace and devotion that can be experienced often takes us all by surprise.

Traditionally, communities have celebrated and supported each other by singing and dancing together in a circle. We can still experience this timeless way of being together through all of life’s joys and challenges. Be nourished by the warmth of heart connection, receive the support of a circle who accept you just as you are. Feel the joy of fully inhabiting your body, feel the awakening vibrations of your own voice joining with others, allow yourself to be truly present in the moment, with the experience of being fully alive.
