As Rumi said, “Moon and evening star do their slow tambourine dance to praise this universe.  The purpose of every gathering is discovered: to recognize beauty and to love what’s beautiful.” Please join us as our leaders guide us through beautiful dances inspired by a variety of spiritual traditions.  Each dance is a practice that helps us to recognize the universe in and around us, and to express our praise and love.  After dancing, we socialize over refreshments.
