Tom Halim Schmeling and Diana Mariam Schmeling are certified dance leaders of the Dances of Universal Peace from Corvallis, Montana. An accomplished guitarist and originator of several dances and Zikrs, Tom Halim is known for his gentle and good humoured leadership that invites people to experience the full depth of the Dances. Diana Mariam has a deep attunement to beauty and joy that brings forth sweetness in her dance leading and her presence. Together, Tom Halim and Diana Mariam are engaging and welcoming ambassadors of peace.

Certified Dance mentor Phil Murad Notermann wears the red cap and has lead dances since the early 1990s.   He has served as president of the board of Oneness Project from 2006 to 2010, among other activities supporting the Dances.  Together with his wife (Helen Gabel) of 45 years, Murad lives in a sustainably focused intentional community north of Seattle, WA. He has practiced and taught within the Buddhist path for decades.

Majida Myriah Pazereckas Roy is to the far right and is a certified Dances of Universal Peace leader, and has led the Dances in several countries. She is in the twelfth year of co-leading the Dances in her community of Colville, Washington, and feels it is a privilege and honor to share these beautiful and sacred dances with the world. She looks forward to extending her love of dance, music, and joy in yet another beautiful Canadian venue!
