Sedona AZ (September 14, 2013) – The Sedona Dances of Universal Peace will now be hosting their events at the Sedona Meditation Center on Jordan Road in uptown Sedona. “It is a lovely, open space with a floor that is so beautiful that shoes are neither necessary nor encouraged” said Wendy Heald, one of the group dance leaders. “We feel fortunate to have been offered this space for our dances and look forward to a wholesome and mutually beneficial relationship with the Sedona Meditation Center,” she continued.
A celebration of the Fall Equinox will be the first dance on Friday, September 20 beginning at 7:00 pm at the Sedona Meditation Center on 340 Jordan Road in uptown Sedona.
The Dances of Universal Peace (sometimes called Sufi dancing) are a joyous, multi-cultural way to touch the spiritual Essence within ourselves and others. The Dances bring together sacred phrases, chants, music and simple movements evocative of the many spiritual traditions of the Earth. Offered as “body prayer” in a spirit of sacredness, the dances promote peace and create an integrated experience of body, mind and spirit, helping dancers to realize the unity of all. No experience is necessary – the dances are simple Circle dances and all dances are taught each time.
The Dances of Universal Peace are simple, meditative and uplifting group dances that represent and integrate the world’s spiritual traditions. Some of the traditions represented are: Hindu, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Sufi, Native American, Jewish, Christian, Islamic, Goddess, Celtic and Universalist. This practice may be called a Walking Prayer.
