‘…a moment of complete presence beyond striving, beyond mere acceptance, beyond the desire to escape, or fix anything, or plunge ahead, a moment of pure being…’ – Jon Kabat
‘You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.’
― Pema Chödrön
Just as many other living things in the natural world begin to settle and conserve their resources, Autumn can be a time for us also to turn within and consider the fruits of the last few months. We would like to offer this day of Dances of Universal Peace and other practices as a shared opportunity to come back and settle within ourselves after the activity of the Summer.
Developing a mindful and accepting presence can help us to appreciate the gifts of the world around us, and at the same time we can also become more aware of our feelings and inner experience. So we will be sharing dances and practices which allow us to be with ourselves, and each other, in a joyful and compassionate way as we move towards the close of the year. As Samuel Lewis said: “Peace is Power” Do come and join us!
Jilani and Robert have loved and served the Dances of Universal Peace for 20 years. Both musicians, healers, and on the Sufi path, their retreats are lively and peaceful, powerfully transformative and joyful, and always full of beautiful music.
Registration and tea 10.00 am; workshop runs from 10.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
£40 if paid by 15 September (£50 thereafter) – Includes a simple but delicious lunch. For catering purposes, please book by 28 September.
