DANCERS & SUPPORTERS
The dancers have already undertaken the ceremony of the Vision Quest, a three to four day retreat secluded in nature in deep communion with the elements. Others are kindly invited to the Earth Dance as supporters in the outer ring of the sacred circle, joining in prayers and gratitude to the Mother Earth.
Supporters may make 280 tobacco ties, tied up on a string and rolled on a stick. Dancers will spread them around the sacred circle.
The Earth Dance Ceremony
The Earth Dance ceremony brings us closer into harmony with the energy of Mother Earth, accompanied by drumming and sacred songs, sung in devotion, gratitude and love. The Dancers give sacrifice for four days without food and water, and thus show reverence and gratitude for her unconditional love and caring for people and all kingdoms.
There is special symbolic meaning of the Earth Dance ceremony. In the middle of the circle, the tree of life is planted, symbolizing Mother Earth – a circle of seven roses around the tree of life represents the feminine principle which is the essence of this ceremony. Women are dancing in the centre of the sacred circle while men are dancing on the outer line which is marked by twenty-eight pairs of birch trees.
In the Earth Dance ceremony, we share four days of praying, thanking and honouring Mother Earth and the Creator, who created such a magnificent creation.
You are kindly invited!
