DUP is one of our wonderful healing experiences. Dances of the Universal Peace are circle dances of all cultures, with sacred phrases, chants, music and original movements of many traditions of this Earth. Simple, meditative and cheerful, united by music and dance, they can touch our spiritual essence. Based on the work started in the 60’s by Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chishti, 1896-1971) in California, they promote wellbeing, balance, harmony, unity, peace, joy and love.
The Dance of Universal Peace (DUP) is a body art, which through a subtle form of sacred geometry, harmonizes and connects the individual being with the collective and with the energies of the universe. The group creates life energy in the circle through movement, sound and union, transmitting energy to mother nature and father cosmos, receiving new vitality. Pedagogically developed, universal dances arise the perception of movement, space, order, rhythm, vocal expressiveness and musical harmony.
A perfect event to bring family and friends together! For gatherings, weddings, birthdays and lifetime rituals. Use comfortable clothes, socks or dancing shoes to be able to move freely.

Mindful Walking Meditation
Mindful Walking Meditation is known in ancient traditions, which left their traces in the Alentejo and the Algarve. Christians Walk to Fátima and The Caminho de Santiago de Compostela; Sufis and Moslems go to Mecca and Buddhist walk in their daily rituals.
Nowadays we can use this wisdom in combination with the modern knowledge of mental health, psychology and neuroscience to adapt simple techniques of consciousness and stress relief.
With The 5 elements earth, water, fire, air and ether abundantly present in the Litoral Alentejo area around us, our senses become sharper, our breath tunes in with the elements and our nervous system resets again.
