Dances of Universal Peace
On New Year's Eve Gainesville had a meaningful & fabulous Global Peace Dance, thanks to the musicians (Mike Felisko, Mary Fukuyama, Jackie Davis & David Willkomm) & the many people who attended (around 70). Alhamdulillah! See more photos on our website. Here's a note from a participant:
"Dear DiAnahita, thank you for the magnificent New Year's Global Peace Dance last night! As soon as we began, I apparently entered a trance state in which time ceased to exist, & I was fully present in the eternal Now. I was so surprised when you began leading the last Dance for Peace, that we had come to the resting place of this New Year's Circle. I felt as if we had Danced for about 15 minutes at the most. Wow! Wishing us all a glorious, victorious New Year, filled with all good things. Infinite Love & Radiant Blessings," -Sukaynah

Nayaz Prayer
Beloved Lord, Almighty God!
Through the rays of the sun,
Through the waves of the air.
Through the All-pervading Life
in space,
Purify & revivify me, and, I pray,
Heal my body, heart, & soul.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
"Consciously or
unconsciously, every being is capable of healing self or others. In ancient days healers learned much from animals about treatment of disease.
The excess of artificial remedies has had the effect of increasing disease. The healer must be confident of at-oneness with God, and feel the power of
the Almighty working, thus absolutely losing the thought
of the individual self."
Hazrat Inayat Khan
