All the World’s Spiritual and Religions Traditions
No experience necessary. All welcome to The Dances!
Led in the tradition of Samuel Lewis, the Dances of Universal Peace are an exuberant and joyful way to connect with, practice, and embody the spiritual teachings from around the world. We sing in English, Sanskrit, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, very simple repeating songs anyone can learn (yes, anyone). But theDances go beyond just learning songs and dances and being together – they offer a way into group harmony and unity that can heal the world. All are welcome. Sometimes offerings will include poetry, song, short meditations, etc.
If you’re a skilled, semi-skilled, or interested musician (any instrument!) that would like to join our musician’s circle, contact Akbar Chris Miller:firstname.lastname@example.org
Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chishti)
The Dances of Universal Peace were started by Samuel L. Lewis, an American Sufi & Zen Master who found himself a spiritual teacher surrounded by young people in San Francisco in the 70’s. A master gardener and lifelong student, Sufi Sam or Murshid SAM as he is known. More info on the Dances click here
The Dances of Universal Peace, The Walks, and other universal spiritual embodiment practices were transmitted from heart to heart and Rising Tide’s founder Shahabuddin David Less learned the Dances directly from SAM in New York shortly before Murshid Sam passed away.
