Dances of Universal Peace

Led by Jennifer Friedman and Scott Youmans.

Despite the paradoxes of being human, we all long to remember. To remember our unity and interconnectedness. And by remembering, to renew ourselves through our essential natures of beauty, truth, and inherent blessing. This morning, we’ll explore the Dances of Universal Peace, an embodied prayer where we sing and dance together in an atmosphere that invites authenticity, vulnerability, and compassion to dissolve separation and explore our interconnectedness with Creation and all humanity.

After the service, please join us on the patio outside Fellowship Hall for dancing from about 11:20 am until Noon. 

Special Guest Jennifer Friedman; Service Associate, Scott Youmans
