10 - 13 Samark Sesshin
Zen & Zikr
From Thursday evening dinner until Sunday, late lunch  
In a Sesshin, we alternate dancing with meditating. We opt for a longer weekend, so all can really get into the rhythm of a Sesshin.
A wonderful way to go deeper inside and let the dances do their inner work.
To further the inner process, part of the weekend will be in silence.
Be sure to register in time, as the two previous Sesshins filled up early.

Dance Weekend Stroud (England)
The Heart of Compassion
Come join us for a weekend of Dances of Universal Peace, focusing on the Sufi & Buddhist paths. Sufis want to travel to the heart, Buddhists to the other shore. In compassion these two paths meet and join hands in the realization that learning about your deeper self can help you to also help others. In a mix of Sufi and Buddhist teachings, Wali & Ariënne will open some pathways to the heart and offer a raft for reaching the other shore together.
