The Dances of Universal Peace and Walking Meditations are spiritual practice in motion. Drawing on the sacred phrases, scripture, and poetry of the many spiritual traditions of the earth, the Dances blend chant, live music and evocative movement into a living experience of unity, peace and integration.

Jun 17-19: Villa Maria Retreat Details
Dances of Universal Peace Return to the Villa Maria
The Villa Maria Retreat Center will be closing its doors at the end of June.
Return and Dance!
Sing and Remember!
Say Thank You and Ya Fattah!
Fri, Jun 17, 7-9p * Sat, Jun 18, 9a-9p * Sun, Jun 19, 9a-1p
All past and current dancers, dance leaders, and musicians are invited to come! Come even if you haven't attended a Dances of Universal Peace circle before.
It is hoped that many past dancers, leaders, and musicians will contribute their time to organize farewell rituals and lead dances during the retreat. If you are interested in offering something, please contact CPeaceDance@gmail.com.
Even though the retreat will have a farewell feel to it, we hope that people new to the Dances will hear about it, attend and feed into existing circles in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area or willing to help host them in other places of the Southeast Minnesota-West Central Wisconsin region.
Scholarships available with the generous support of the Oneness Project. Contact CPeaceDance@gmail.com for details.
