DANCES OF UNIVERSAL PEACE 
 & GODDESS CEREMONIES

ADD CIRCLE DANCING TO YOUR EVENT!

Dancing On Kauai 

 

Add spirit and joy to your gathering, workshop, retreat, wedding, house blessing, ritual or celebration with the Dances of Universal Peace.

These simple, participatory dances get everyone singing and moving together, creating a feeling of fellowship and warmth, and adding a deep bodily experience of the Divine. These are easily learned, with gentle movements that even "non-dancers" can greatly enjoy. Singing sacred, ancient phrases creates a full body healing vibration, and when conscious movement is added, these become powerful spiritual practices.

Each dance will be fully taught, no experience is necessary. Dances are many and varied and can be chosen to fit your event. Begun in the 1960's in San Francisco, and nicknamed Sufi Dancing, these dances have spread around the world, with the purpose of creating world peace.

Amara's repertoire includes dances of every major world religion, native traditions and non-denominational universal styles. Wonderful for children and elders.

Fees negotiable.

Amara is a Sheikha (teacher) and minister in the Sufi tradition (in the Sufi Islamia Ruhaniat Society), and has created many celebrations as a Priestess in the Earth Goddess tradition. She has been leading ceremony and ritual since 1985, for small and large groups. She emphasizes participation, simplicity, emotional depth and sharing, song and dance.



Sufi Zikr is a traditional form of chanting, done in Arabic, for the purpose of uniting a group's energy in awakening to divine presence. The word "Zikr" means "remembrance'. Simple phrases and movements are repeated with rhythmic accompaniment, creating an absorbing form of meditative prayer. ...Zikr can be very melodic or simply spoken, and is always a deep and devotional practice.
