* Dancing Ourselves Awake: A Dances of Universal Peace retreat with Anahata Iradah

Dancing Ourselves Awake:
A Dances of Universal Peace retreat
with Anahata Iradah

Date: April 26-28, 2019
Location: Newton Christian Conference Center

Theme:"What if each dance called forth from us the ability to be so present that time stands still and we are living exactly in the present moment? What would we need to do, to adjust, to let go of to allow that to happen? What would we need to do to dance ourselves awake?"


Anahata Iradah is a senior teacher in the Mentor Teacher’s Guild of the International Network for the Dances of Universal Peace. She is a gifted musician, teacher, composer, songwriter, meditation teacher, DVD author and documentary film producer. The revered Buddhist teacher Shinzen Young has been her personal guide in the path of Vipassana meditation. With his encouragement she has combined the Dances of Universal Peace and Buddhist meditation techniques and teachings. She orchestrates spiritual pilgrimage to India, Nepal and Brasil. The quality that stirs her heart most is the attribute of kindness.

The Dance Retreat:
Begins on Saturday afternoon and continues through lunch at Sunday noon. 
Fee: $75 plus room and board on or before March 3, 2019.  Add $25 after March 3.

Those who would like, can add-on a Friday night and Saturday morning Dance Circle, Saturday morning group mandala stone painting activity, or personal free time.
