Gatherings will be held in over 120 countries to celebrate the initial offering of the Dances of Universal Peace in San Francisco, & to remember Samuel Lewis, beloved Sufi teacher, spiritual ancestor, inspired poet,
citizen diplomat, generous gardener,
& creator of the Dances of Universal Peace.

As we join hands in the Dance Circle which he gave to us,
we will participate in dances by & about him & inspired by his legacy. Raising our voices together, we will “Dance to Glory” in his footsteps ~ in praise, love, harmony, & joy. 

Mike Felisko will play guitar, & Jemila will lead a dance.

Our day will also include stories about Murshid Sam, sayings by him, humor, & ice cream, because he used to treat his students after meetings.

"If you do these practices and become like me, you flunk"

"If you do these practices and become yourself, you pass."

DiAnahita will be leading in Daytona on Sunday, July 15
Unity Church of Holly Hill. 1:00 - 3:00PM with a potluck afterwards.
The Federation of the Sufi Message gathering was this month at Fazal Manzil, the home of Hazrat Inayat Khan in Suresnes, a suburb of Paris

Dances of Universal Peace honor religious traditions of the world by chanting phrases from holy scriptures & oral traditions.

Everything is taught in the moment as we join our voices together.
