Sponsored by an Islamic Sufi order, DUP is an international organization devoted to peacefully honoring the positive spiritual power in the world’s major faith traditions. Known also as Peace Dances or Sufi Dancing, the dances are a moving way to become more aware of the divine in and around us. Inspired by many different religions, each dance is a practice that deepens our resonance with an aspect of spirituality. For each dance, our leader teaches us the words, meaning, and melody of a sacred chant, and dance motions to accompany it. Then we all dance while singing the chant, deepening our experience with each repetition.
