Event description

Description

Barbara Perry invites participants to experience the joy of dancing in a circle with others and a sense of well-being and community. It has long been a heartfelt desire for Friedel Kloke-Eibl founder of the Institute for Sacred Dance/ Dance Meditation (Germany) to be engaged in working for peace. Clear instructions are given as each new dance is introduced. So, come on your own or with a friend and join in!

The United Nations Organisation has designated the 21st. September as International Day of Peace. On this day or as close to it as possible, Friedel invites dancers all over the world to come together in their own place or elsewhere with the specific intention of dancing for world peace. Around the globe, all will be dancing the same dances. The energy created by this dancing together with a common intention can become a powerful force for good. So, come along and join us. No previous dance experience is required. Clear instructions will be given for each dance.

Setting Out – Together

For an open world of tolerance,
That won’t be dictated by fear
But by the good in every person.

Being on a journey together
In a multicultural world
That moves people of different religions

To venture on a joint path of peace.

Daring to resist together
For a hospitable world
In which xenophobia
Has no breeding ground.
Pierre Stutz
From “Breathing Space for the Soul”


About the Facilitator

Barbara Perry chf, B.A, B Mus., Dip Psych., Dip. Dance Meditation /Sacred Dance

Barbara is a graduate of the Institute for Dance Meditation/Sacred Dance in Germany. She leads workshops, rituals and dancing circles in Ireland and abroad.
From a very early age, Barbara studied classical music and ballet. While music has always been part of her life, she concluded her classical ballet training during her teen years. However, to Barbara’s delight, dance made a welcome return to her life at the millenium, in the form of Dance Meditation/Sacred Dance. Barbara has trained with several teachers but the most transformative and enduring influence has been her encounter with Friedel Kloke-Eibl founder of the Association of Dance Meditation/ Sacred Dance in Germany, under whose direction she undertook an intensive training over several years. She leads regular dancing circles and workshops in Ireland and abroad.

The Venue

The Emmaus Retreat Centre welcomes you to a beautiful location supporting peace and harmony. The gardens and river walk help to enrapture our hearts with a sense of serenity and tranquility. In keeping with our natural surroundings, where we are fortunate to find ourselves, the Centre has been designed to bring that natural tranquility inside allowing a special atmosphere in which to create the appropriate setting for your retreat.

We all need time out now and then to gather our thoughts and to relieve the pressure of our daily lives. We invite you to look after your physical and spiritual well-being, to work with your relationship with yourself.
