I really enjoy playing for the DUP dances – Peacock Paradise is so beautiful!  It is worth going just to enjoy the ambiance, uplifting energy & sweet people. We just had a dance with a goddess theme (but men still showed up!), & the music was so wonderful that it’s still going through my head. Our guitar player Kathy is quite talented, & writes lovely tunes, & recently words are coming through her to put to these melodies. Some are so inspiring that she & other choreographers have created dances to them.

What a deeply beautiful time at the goddess dance. I feel blessed to join in such an uplifting & inspiring experience.  Plus, I am grateful for the additional lessons about the care you give to building & sustaining the group energy over the course of each dance gathering. The sheer intricacy of all you orchestrate continues to  amaze me! 
With love & gratitude,  Barclay

Dear DiAnahita, Thank you for the gift & grace Of yesterday's dances & zikr.  I needed to enter another world, to step out of time & into the circle of love.  Sufi Heart Love,

Thx again, Anahita, for providing the grand opportunity to Dance & commune on Sat .....and for all U do to encourage many Beings along the path to the One!  Ya Fattah!
The idea of the hand as containing & expressing divine energy is found in nearly all spiritual traditions.
"Health of mind & body
depends upon preserving harmony." 
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Beloved Lord, Almighty God!
Through the rays of the sun,
Through the waves of the air,
Through the all-pervading
Life in space,
Purify and revivify me, and, I pray,
Heal my body, heart, and soul.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
