During the weekend we will spend time singing and dancing to sacred and celebratory songs and chants from various spiritual and universal traditions. No experience in dancing or singing is required. The essence of the Dances of Universal peace, are that they are heart-focussed and acknowledge the presence of the divine in each person. There will be ample time to enjoy the peace and beauty in the extensive gardens of the Buddhist Retreat Centre,and, of course, the delicious meals. It is in the participation of the shared experience of sound which brings great peace and healing into our hearts and to the world.
