Sacred Dance

Saturday    |    10:00 - 17:00 (12/05/2018) (UTC+0), Duration: 07:00 Place: Margaret Aylward Centre, Glasnevin, Dublin 11


By tuning to the Heart, we open to our true nature and experience a sense of peace and compassion for ourselves and all beings. This day will show us how we can use the challenges of life to clear the rust from our hearts.  We can resource ourselves through the Dances of Universal Peace which are circle dances in which we also chant mantras from different spiritual traditions.

Arienne and Wali van der Zwan are musicians and senior teachers of the Dances.  They are Dutch but live in Germany and travel widely in Western and Eastern Europe giving retreats and workshops. They offer the Dances as part of a spiritual path open to all. Their style of leading combines strength with beauty, depth with lightness, joy with energy, clarity and focus with ease. Their co-teaching allows for interweaving of masculine and feminine energies. They are sheikhs in the Ruhaniat and follow the path of Universal Sufism.

One of the reasons I am teaching this music and dancing is to increase Joy . . . This is finding God within, through Experience.                     Samuel Lewis
