"perhaps it is the case that we not only love and cherish music, but at the level of vibration and frequency we are music...the cells of the body are continuously dancing, pulses surge in harmony and polyrhythm, bird songs, breezes and ocean waves, along with the stillness of evening express a divine symphony..." Gayan

Radiance of Being
Dances of Universal Peace and Meditation Retreat with Amrita Bhakti and Prem at Tushita Heart Hermitage, Northland.
Sometimes referred to as Sufi Sesshin, the synergistic effect of these two modalities combining together is far greater than either the Dances or Meditation being experienced on its own. Sufi sesshin deepens the whole experience for participants and can lead to a profound sense of inner harmony, beauty and unity.
