Dances of Universal Peace


Sunday 28th April 10-4.30pm

Woodchester Village Hall GL5 5PQ

a day of dances, chants and meditation led by Yelena Swarana (from Latvia) and myself.

Yelena has organised the Latvian DUP camp since 2009. Her passion is travelling, exploring new cultures and sharing the essence of it with others. Since her first journey to India she has totally fallen in love with its land and people and the sacred mountain Arunachala-Shiva. For the last 5 years Yelena spends half of the year in India, and half a year in Europe. Through mantras and dances Yelena is sharing never-ending joy and sweetness of the heart. This a rare visit of hers to the UK.

Morag Allen will be accompanying us with her guitar.

Doors open from 10 for drinks and biscuits; dancing starts at 10.30.

Cost £25 (£20 early bird rate, if paid by 18th April).

Please pay John Rees sort code 40-47-79 acc no 51584251.

Please bring a vegetarian contribution to a shared lunch.

About the Dances
These simple, beautiful body-prayers are open to all; each dance is taught afresh. They honour diverse spiritual traditions from all over the world, and can take us to a place of profound inner harmony.  We sing sacred mantras and make simple movements in a circle. They are a moving meditation which can help us to access deeper spiritual aspects of being than our busy analytical minds allow.

I trained as a DUP leader with Philip O'Donohoe from 2007 to 2009 and have continued leading in Stroud and beyond, both in solo sessions and shared with various other leaders.
