It is important to consciously set one's intention before
beginning anything. It is especially important, in a group, to
clearly make known what we have come together to do. This way
we all know that we are in agreement and we know what it is we
have agreed to share together.
Many dance circles regularly begin with an invocation of the
Divine and an intention to move toward it. Our Tuesday Circle
starts with the premise that the Divine is already present,
speaking to us and flowing its energy to us through the center
of our being. We believe that the Dances Of Universal Peace
can help bring our awareness to that place inside each one of
us through which the universal wisdom and pure life energy constantly flows.
We begin each evening by inviting all participants to join us in
stating the following intention:
"There is a place of pure peace at the center of my being.
Resting there is the most powerful thing I can do
for myself and my loved ones;
for my community and my world.
For a while, I can release my concerns
and be fully present as I nourish my soul
and rest in my place of peace."
