NEWPORT, R.I. – Christopher Carbone, an adjunct professor of expressive arts in Salve Regina University’s Holistic Counseling program, will facilitate “The Dances of Universal Peace,” a community-wide event that brings people together to celebrate their cross-cultural and spiritual connection.
“Dances of Universal Peace” will be presented on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Young Building, corner of Bellevue and Ruggles avenues. Free and open to the public, space is limited for this event so those interested in participating are asked to RSVP to Carbone at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (401) 846-9014.
“From the beginning of time, music, movement, chant, song and prayer have brought communities together at times of celebration, and as part of everyday life,” Carbone says. “The Dances of Universal Peace are a profound, cross-cultural way to connect with the spiritual essence within ourselves and others.”
The event’s circle-dance format will be composed of simple movements and the singing of sacred chants and songs, drawn from the many faith traditions of the world, and dedicated to world peace.
“The Dances of Universal Peace are joyful, uplifting and unifying,” Carbone says.
