The Dances of Universal Peace

These dances invoke all traditions and honors all wisdom paths. We will be singing and dancing and embodying these moving Prayers. We move around the circle, sometimes from partner to partner, allowing our thoughts to fall away as we experience the Divine in each other and ourselves.

Murshid Sam, in the 1960's, brought forward the Dances, to awaken the hearts and minds of his Sufi students and create an ecstatic experience of unity. He was influenced by his dance teacher Ruth St. Dennis and his Sufi Teacher, Hazrat Inayat Khan who brought Sufism to the west in 1914.

Dance of the Divine Feminine — Invoking “The Goddess Tara”

The tantric Buddhist practices that we will work with, invoking the Divine Goddess Tara, who is the great Mother of Wisdom and Compassion. This practice is composed of various rituals, prayers, mantras and meditations. This Green Tara ritual is a moving meditation where we embody Tara’s qualities and tap into our own divine feminine beauty. We will be invoking the 21 praises of Tara and dancing her qualities. This offering is for both men and women.
