Bettina Shakura Heidsiek
Dances of Universal Peace - Bettina Shakura has had a love for dancing, singing and drumming since childhood. She engaged in African, Oriental and Sacred Circle Dance before the Dances of Universal Peace came into her life and took her on a profound journey of healing back into wholeness.
Originally from Germany, she lived also in England and France and feels blessed to have been part of the Dance Families and Camps in these countries for many years.
Initiated on the Sufi path, with the divine feminine and an embodied spirituality close to her heart, she has been leading DUP since 2001 and for several years shared Sufi morning practices at the Unicorn Camp. Her Sufi guide is Mariam Baker. With her partner Glen she has offered dance holiday weeks in Morocco and Andorra.
Now she is based in Berlin.
