Dances of Universal Peace are a participatory form of modern mystical practice inspired by Sufi reverence for the Divine in all people and in the deeply positive spiritual traditions of humanity. Our spectrum of practices include walks of the elements and of the planets, as well as dances that resonate with Buddhist, Christian, Goddess, Hindu, Indigenous, Islamic, Jewish, Sikh, Zoroastrian, and other traditions. As Rumi said, “Moon and evening star do their slow tambourine dance to praise this universe. The purpose of every gathering is discovered: to recognize beauty and to love what’s beautiful.”* For more info on Dances of Universal peace, see: http://dancesofuniversalpeacena.org/
All are welcome to Cola Dances of Universal Peace, first Fridays in 2016, 7-9 pm, at a private home near Richland Mall in Columbia SC. We welcome you to join in as our leader guides us through meditative dances inspired by a variety of spiritual traditions. Each dance is a practice that helps us to recognize the beautiful universe in and around us, and to express our praise and love. We may also share some prayers, blessings, and ecstatic poetry. After dancing, we socialize over refreshments. Small donations are accepted.
RSVP by email or phone the the day before the dance to let me know that you will attend. I will also give you directions to the dance location. – Marguerite Frongillo, <firstname.lastname@example.org> 803-743-8731
