We sing, dance and pray together for peace within ourselves and the world.
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative, joyous, multi-cultural circle dances that use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements from the many spiritual traditions of the earth to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and recognize it in others. Building on the work begun by Samuel L. Lewis in the 1960s, they promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. There are no performers nor audience: new arrivals and old hands form the circle as everyone sings and dances together.

So looking forward to our Dances of Universal Peace gathering this Sunday, May 7th at 2pm! Hope to see you there!
"In order to thrive, we have to be “in touch” with others, to internalize their humanity."
This thoughtful article from YES! Magazine reminds us of the power of connection that we try to cultivate in our work: the diversity of communities in which we participate across the globe, the connections made in an AVP workshop, the shared value of recognizing the dignity in everyone.
