THE DANCES OF UNIVERSAL PEACE are simple, meditative, joyous multi-circle dances using sacred phrases, music, chanting, and simple movements from the many traditions of the Earth to touch the spiritual essence within ourselves and others.  Based on the work begun in the late 1960's by American mystic, Samuel L. Lewis, they promote peace and integration within individuals and groups worldwide.  There are no performers or audience. No prior experience is needed! Come! Join hands and experience peace–within and without.
