  It was wonderful to be part of such an uplifting and fun group of people doing such beautiful spiritual dances!  Talia

those beautiful young faces: Jessica, Akbar, & Khalika!

You and your endeavors are simply marvelous. You have inspired so much beauty and so much dancing..! I'm lifted by the thought of all you are, dear DiAnahita...and all you create!

  You Have Wings!

You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness & trust
You were born with ideals
& dreams
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling,
so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them & fly.


Khatum – Evening Prayer

O Thou, Who art the Perfection
of Love, Harmony, & Beauty,
The Lord of heaven & earth,
Open our hearts,
that we may hear Thy Voice,
which constantly cometh from within.
Disclose to us Thy Divine Light,
which is hidden in our souls,
that we may know
& understand life better.
Most Merciful & Compassionate God,
Give us Thy great Goodness;
Teach us thy loving Forgiveness;
Raise us above the distinctions
& differences that divide;
Send us the Peace of Thy Divine Spirit,
& unite us all in Thy Perfect Being.

O Thou,
the Sustainer of our bodies, hearts, & souls,
Bless all that we receive
in Thankfulness
