Samuel Lewis: gardener, poet, teacher, in his own words…  “The World is awakening!”
‘“Why not do something rather than talk about it?” was his motto. If you wish to do
something about joy and ecstasy, you will dance the dance of Shiva, and the world will
dance with you.’

The Dances of Universal Peace are simple sacred chants and movements danced in circles, accompanied by beautiful live music. This is an opportunity to meet ourselves and each other, fully embodied, in the heart-space of deep meditation and devotion, through chant, movement, breath practices, sharing, ritual and ceremony. Everything will be clearly guided and held, and all are welcome, whether you are new friends or old.
