Hafiz asked, “If God invited you to a party and said, ‘Everyone in the ballroom tonight will be my special guest,’ how would you then treat them when they arrived?
Indeed, indeed! And Hafiz knows that there is no one in this world who is not upon His Jeweled Dance Floor.”
-Hafiz ‘s “If God Invited You To a Party, ” p 47 in The Gift, Poems by Hafiz, Translated by Daniel Ladinsky, 1999 Penguin, New York 333 pp.
Please join the other special guests on the Beloved’s dance floor on Friday March 7, from 7-9 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia 2701 Heyward Street, Columbia SC, 29205. Our usual leaders will teach and lead a variety of dances inspired by different spiritual traditions, celebrating the harbingers of spring. Each dance is a practice that, like the facets of a jewel, reflects spiritual light from different perspectives. Through the dances, we move towards greater awareness of inner peace. We will sprinkle in some prayers and blessings of the season.
After dancing, we socialize over refreshments. Small donations accepted. For more info, contact Marguerite <email@example.com>, 803-743-0731.
Peace and Blessings,
