Black and white photo of Murshid Samuel L. Lewis seated. $6.00
Photo of the originator of the Dances of Universal Peace, Murshid SAM studied and mastered many spiritual paths, and was the first American-born Sufi master. Committed to world peace through exchanges in the arts and agriculture, he was a ‘‘citizen diplomat’’ long before the phrase was invented. ‘‘Eat, Dance and Pray Together’’ was his peace plan. In his writings and teaching talks, he especially credits two of his teachers, Hazrat Inayat Khan and Ruth St. Denis, for their influence on him as the Dances began to ‘‘come to and through’’ him.
