Radiance of Being -

A Mindfulness Meditation and Dances of Universal Peace Retreat with Amrita Bhakti and Prem

"The Dances of Universal Peace are an excellent way to prepare for Meditation and Meditation is an excellent way to prepare for Dances of Universal Peace”

Samuel Lewis – Zen Roshi and originator of Dances of Universal Peace

About the Retreat

In a beautiful natural setting, you will be gently guided in this retreat interweaving Dances of Universal Peace with Mindfulness Meditation. These simple yet powerful practices help us relax, feel happier, revitalised, more connected and present.

Meditation does this through the breath, silence and stillness, the Dances through sound, breath, sacred phrase and moving in unison.

This unique blend of Dances of Universal Peace and Mindfulness Meditation, allows you to more easily and directly move back towards your true nature.

Some people may feel inhibited by their singing or dancing ability, however no skills are necessary. Experience is not needed, and instruction will be given in an easily understandable way.

The retreat will be mostly in silence for participants to allow the rare opportunity in today’s busy noisy world to simply be present with oneself without the usual distractions of talking, or of having to maintain everyday social conventions.

Mindfulness Meditation Sitting in silence, guidance will be offered to focus attention and help restore a natural balance of the body and mind. In essence, mindfulness helps us awaken to the uniqueness and possibilities of each present moment.

“Meditation is a vital way to purify and quieten the mind, thus rejuvenating the body” Deepak Chopra

Dances of Universal Peace are part of the timeless tradition of sacred dance and song that uses mantra, melody and simple body movement to reconnect us to the flow of Life. They are offered in an atmosphere of safety, spaciousness and mindfulness.

“One of the reasons I am teaching this music and dancing is to increase Joy, and bliss in our own self. This is finding the Beloved within, through experience” Samuel Lewis

Facilitators Amrita Bhakti and Prem Provan

Amrita Bhakti and Prem are certified leaders and trainers of the Dances of Universal Peace and have been practising Meditation and leading events for many years.

Amrita Bhakti delights in bringing these practices she feels passionate about to people. She brings her love of Life to joyfully guide you on this experiential exploration of being yourself.

Prem was profoundly touched by the discovery of these Dances, Sufism and Meditation in the late 80’s and continues to grow and deepen in these pathways. He is a great lover of nature and Sufi poetry.

In recent years, Amrita Bhakti and Prem feel gratefully enriched and enlivened by their growing understanding of Life through their study with Wisdom Masters Sri Yanchiji and Arohananda Ma.

"...I love the taste of phrases in ancient languages, all praising the Divine which I am part of. I enjoy the company and engagement with others, I adore the palpable devotion and clarity of the facilitators. There's the opportunity to express the gratitude, happiness and fullness of Life that is me..." -Zsuzsanna

"...I have mostly lived through a complex mind to suppress my feeling side therefore what Amrita Bhakti and Prem offer challenges me to expose what is suppressed...Sufi Sesshin is one way to do this; it should be part of every day life as much as thinking!.." -Nu Wa

"...This simple form of dance and silence creates the opportunity to surrender into the Unknown. With these gentle yet joyful guides, self effort falls away leaving one in the joy of breath and being here: coming back to your truer self. Celebrate through stillness and movement the already whole unified present moment called Life." - Agni Prava

"Dance with Amrita and Prem was an experience like no other dance I've ever tried as it offers dance with no goal, no "right way", no motive to impress, no other substances needed than your own body and sound provided, your own movement and voice in a beautiful, safe environment activating all those yummy hormones that usually lie dormant, self-consciousness momentarily slipping off" - Sitara
