Dances of      protected DUP Logo: circle of hearts      Universal Peace

Below info relates to our South Newington DUP until 20112:

Dances of Universal Peace: a powerful & joyful spiritual practice & experience, chanting while dancing in a circle.
Ralph’s & Vitalija’s style is intense, deep into the heart - and yet light and humorous, supported with drum & guitar.
The Peace Dances offer a mix of fiery ecstatic dances, slow meditative flowing movements, joyful Jewish dances, harmony Hallelujas, Sufi zikrs, lots of partner dances - and sometimes harmonies.
In the left link box you find more about the Peace Dances, about Ralph & Vitalija, feedback from dancers, photos, articles, our programme & more...

"The spiritual dance has no other purpose, no other aim than to elevate [hu]mankind beyond self-thought, to joy, to bliss, to realization and to peace ... the sincere dancer is one of the best workers for universal harmony, and so, for universal peace..."
(Samuel Lewis, founder of the Dances of Universal Peace)

Nourish your soul - awaken your inner light - feel the spirit of community - enjoy chanting and dancing in our circle.

No experience in singing or dancing required. Everyone is welcome: "If you can talk, you can sing. If you can walk, you can dance" (African saying).
