A bit about the dance…
The Dances of Universal Peace started in a garage in San Francisco CA in the late 1960s, as a spiritual practice brought through by Murshid Samuel L. Lewis. Today the Dances are essentially a grass roots network of people all over the planet.
Our network is supported by several organizations that provide a variety of services, guidance, outreach and funding, including: leader training resources, calendars of Dance retreats, and information on local circles all over the world:
- DUP organization: Providing leader training, mentoring, and outreach to numerous world-wide events: http://dancesofuniversalpeace.org
- North American branch of DUP: http://dancesofuniversalpeacena.org
- Oneness Project – Provides funding for various services and runs a major dance camp in the region: http://onenessproject.com
- The broader world of Murshid SA is supported and sustained by the Sufi Ruhaniat International: http://ruhaniat.org
