The Heart of the Dances of Universal Peace is rooted in spiritual transmission, the living connection of one soul to and through another, toward the One. When Murshid Samuel Lewis first gave the Dances and Walks, he was solely concerned with spiritual awakening, not with creating phenomena (or something phenomenal). So returning to the living heart of the dances involves deepening in our own heart process rather than developing toward more variety, better techniques, and more charismatic performance. Living transmission is what empowered the early, most intensive growth of the Dances and Dance network. (Murshid Saadi)

Location: We meet in the spring glory of rural Massachusetts, 1.5 hrs. NW of Boston. Dance yurt, farmhouses, barns, and organic gardens abut acres of conservation land, lake and waterfall. Accommodations include easy soft camping sites, 2 rustic cabins, outdoor hot showers, and for those who need indoor lodging, shared sleeping rooms in the 2 houses and finished barn, as available. Everyone helps with meals and cleanup.

Timing: The retreat begins on Friday evening and ends by 4pm on Monday.

Cost: Sliding Scale Earlybird discount if paid by May 1, $250 – $300. After May 1, $325. Partial work exchanges available as well as partial scholarship/work exchange for youth. Please inquire! First come, first serve!
