Dances of Universal Peace: Spreading Peace and Love with Dance and Devotion
Air Date: 22 September, 2023
The Dances of Universal Peace are spreading around the world, changing people’s vision of what is possible. Join us as we unfold our aspirations to be living contributors to a sustainable and harmonious future for all beings.
All of our worldwide problems, environmental, political, racial, gender, and prosperity inequality have been the result of human ignorance, greed, pride, jealousy, and lack of self-worth. It is natural therefore that the solutions at their core rely on human beings practicing Loving Kindness and Compassion. At an eco-village in Columbia, a group of Sufi dance leaders from many countries of the Americas (North and South) gather to study and learn how to present dances, song,s and meditations to open hearts and minds.
Pir Shabda Kahn, spiritual head of the Sufi Ruhaniat International, and Amertat Cohn, Director of the movie SunSeed, will discuss the roots of the Dances which were first created by Murshid Samuel Lewis and shown in the movie SunSeed The Journey. How can dance and repetition of the Divine name change a person or the earth? What does it mean to live a spiritual life, and how can this engender Love, Harmony and Beauty?
We will also explore the eco-community movement and how raising consciousness can protect our world. Movie footage will be used to document the originals of the Dance and show some of the present-day and future leaders of Sufism in the West and the eco village movement.
Dances of Universal Peace and Sufi practices can transform ourselves and the world. Pir Shabda Kahn and director Amertat Cohn show via Videos and discussion a path to peace.
