The Dances of Universal Peace honor the sacred traditions of the world by incorporating mantras & scripture into melodic moving meditations.  Singing, dancing, & prayers are included.  Everyone participates. 
.
These dances are a form of spiritual practice for many dancers, & you can help maintain the sacred, joyful atmosphere as we sing & dance.  It is customary to sing whole-heartedly after the leader has demonstrated, hold a minute or so of silence after a dance ends, & to refrain from talking between dances. 
.
MUSICIANS for this special dance are Khalika Rebecca Pethes on Guitar & Harmonium, Haqqiqa Lynn McRee on Guitar, Scott Kessler on Bass Guitar, Isabel Coutts on Accordian, David Willkomm and Joe Howard on Percussion. 
We'll all contribute to the vocals!

Thanksgiving 2009 at Dancing Peacock Paradise

Dances of Universal Peace honor religious traditions of the world by chanting phrases from holy scriptures & oral traditions.

Everything is taught in the moment as we join our voices together.
