Our Chicagoland EarthDance event is sponsored by SANCTUARY & will benefit Play for Peace

a global organization based in Chicago, teaching people to be leaders for peace

and how to live and play together in creating more peaceful communities.


The blueprint for Earthdance is simple, it’s a day when the world can unite through the universal platform of music and dance to affirm peace and celebrate cultural diversity.


*One  highlight of EarthDance is a simultaneous link-up, when every event across the world unites in the  "Prayer for Peace" & this years special "Honoring of the Waters, Global OM"

which will be 6pm sharp, Chicago time –

early morning in the Australian rainforest, midnight in London, and sunrise over the Himalayas,

the Prayer for Peace meditation is a profound and powerful healing & harmonizing moment…


  Earthdance International, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

I Am Effortless Prosperity

Fearlessness is My Gift

Abundance is My Birthright

Bliss is My Offering

Beauty is My Reality

I Am the Abode of Wealth & Splendor

Lakshmi Ma is the Hindu Goddess of Prosperity or Bliss. But how do we achieve our Bliss?

How do we open to receive the True abundance of our Divine Birthright?

How do we reach Lakshmi Ma?
There is a myth which says that there are two roads to Lakshmi, two roads to one's own Bliss,

each of which is guarded by two different, very important energies embodied by the Hindu deities Saraswati (Wisdom) and Ganesha (Opener of the Way).

The myth suggests that in order for one to achieve their own True Bliss, we must first travel

these two roads. We must travel the road guided by Saraswati, the great teacher

who passes on the Wisdom of the Heavens to All; and we must also travel the road guided by Ganesha who removes all obstacles, personal and external, from our path.

Each of these three deities are associated with three of the seven Chakra centers in the body. Ganesha dwells within the root chakra, Saraswati within the crown

and Lakshmi within the Solar Plexis. This combination is very auspicious,

developing the principal of opposition which brings balance & freedom.

From our head we are tall and light (Saraswati)

and at our base we are grounded and unencumbered (Ganesha).

And to tie it all together we maintain a strong center of power (Lakshmi)

letting this guide us into our own Bliss.
