Unicorn Dancing Spirit Camp - A New Dances of Universal Peace Film
Released June 10, 2018
It is a great joy to present an original documentary film, three years in the making, about the Unicorn Dancing Spirit Camp in England. Professional filmmaker Chris Garrett has brought all his considerable sensitivity and artistry to bear to create a unique document of the camp community during its 25th anniversary year.
These videos below were filmed at regional dance camps and retreats in
Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico or Utah.

From Dennis Roshay who filmed this video at Summer Camp with the Beloved in Colorado, July 2017:
Hello, hello: Here is that prayer from Hazrat Inayat Khan that some have asked for. Some have also asked to be edited out, which I totally understand. This is a prayer and quite personal, and I often felt it an invasion of privacy to try and record it…but I finally did at our last camp. I tried to stay up high and not move around and call attention to myself, so as to become part of the furniture, so to speak. I didn’t want anyone to turn during the dance and find themselves staring into a camera lens, while in this prayer activity. I layered some effects to boost everyones inherent angelic qualities, so that perhaps only Archangel Michael down the hillside would recognize you. That was my intent, in any case. My wish is that the dance/prayer/images will not offend anyone, and please those who have requested it…so there you have it….hugs around…Dennis
