Wilderness Dance Camp 2022
August 14-20, 2022

Together Again: Expanding into the Field of Love
Inclusion. Spaciousness. Fusion. Integration.

These words inspire us as we consider our vision for camp this year. After a hiatus of 2 years we are feeling our way into how we want to be together. We are looking at the elements of our practice of the Dances of Universal Peace and personal practices that complement the DUP. We are looking at the needs of the world and how we show up to be a part of the healing.
