The Dances are back!
This year we have the opportunity to explore the world’s religions through dance! The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements to touch the spiritual essence in ourselves and recognize it in others. No musical or dance experience of any kind is required. And everyone is welcome (but not pressured) to join in. The Dances focus on PEACE — creating a sense of solidarity and community, while celebrating and understanding the unity. of all spiritual traditions on the Earth. Come and be a part of the circle that connects all of humanity. Walia Sandra Guillow is a seasoned and enthusiastic dance leader from Connecticut who will help us find ease and grace and will be accompanied by her musician husband Shems WIlliam Guillow.

The Dances were originated by Samuel Lewis in the late 1960s in San Francisco. Lewis was a lifelong student of the esoteric teachings of many religious traditions, including Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism.
