    The Power of Unity & The Magic of Harmonies: Dances of Universal Peace, Cambridge

    The Power of Unity & The Magic of Harmonies: Dances of Universal Peace, Cambridge
    Friends Meeting House Cambridge

    Ralph will lead peace dances with a focus on unity and chanting in unison which can be danced and sung in harmonies or as rounds.
    Adding body movements makes it so much easier to learn and sing a melody than just being static...
    The dances cover a wide range from slow meditative to high energy dances honouring various spiritual / religious traditions, including partner dances, Sufi zikrs and some of Ralph's own dances. No experience in singing or dancing is required - everyone is welcome. Weather permitting, we hope to dance some dances outside on the round lawn in the sheltered garden adjoining the dance hall.
    "If you can talk, you can sing. If you can walk, you can dance." (African saying)

    Experience the magic of the Dances of Universal Peace, their gentle uplifting and transformative effect: Singing and dancing are elementary creative expressions of our being. Focusing and using our bodies, hearts and souls, brings our whole being into balance and harmony. The human voice is a gateway to the soul. Forming a circle is a symbol and reminder of us being part of a community. In synchronised movements of the group as one organism, the separated individuality may dissolve into a blissful state of oneness. Singing in harmony with others resonates with all creation: sun, moon and the planets, the elements around us - and the dancing atoms in us.

    Dances of Universal peace with Ralph & Vitalija - a join-in singing dancing circle

    Dances of Universal peace with Ralph & Vitalija - a join-in singing dancing circle
    Bharat Bhavan Mill Road

    "An experience beyond words...
    We move and breathe and sing together in a circle, holding hands, like one organism.
    Like a cell in the body, remembering being part of something much bigger than the small self.
    The separated individuality may dissolve into a blissful state of oneness with the group.
    Simultaneous chanting and dancing are fundamental expressions of our creativity,
    which gets inspired and stimulated through these Dances of Universal Peace.
    The Dances of Universal Peace are a spiritual practice:
    all chakras get involved or even activated.
    A deep, soulful sense of joy may be felt.
    Tears may flow, when the soul begins to remember it's deep longing...

    The dances can be a bridge to awakening, connecting with the Divine.
    Your voice may open up and your breathing can become deeper and free.
    All sorts of things may happen during or after the dancing, often on a subtle level.
    We usually hug each other. These hugs can be very healing and comforting..."

    Cost: £6 (or less, if you can't afford this)
