Pics from EarthDance past

 

EarthDance !!! - It’s the World’s Largest Dance Party  – & you’re invited…

on SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2008, over 300,000 people

in more than 300 cities & 60 nations will come together

for the 12th annual EARTHDANCE®, The Global Dance Festival For Peace.

 

EarthDance has shown how the potent combination of music, dance, drums

& technology can be harnessed for positive, humanitarian aims. For one night

all around the globe, people join together to dance as one global community,

united with a common vision for peace.

 

The mega-event’s mission is to unite world communities in support of non-profit humanitarian

and peace-related causes, and foster an environment of peace and harmony throughout the global sphere. In the spirit of "Think Global, Act Local," each local Earthdance promoter must donate at least 50%

of their profit to a local charity. Our recipient this year is Hilda's Place (a shelter for Women)
& since the "Permibus" - part of the Earth Activists Training has been seized in the current harassment
of non-violent demonstrations @ the RNC, part of the funds will also go to
E.A.T.

 

Since its 1997 launch (in 18 countries), this grass roots-fueled juggernaut has generated both awareness and financial support for non-profit organizations across the world.

The selected charities work for the welfare of children, urban youth or indigenous peoples,

international relief and development, environmental protection, and peace.

 

 “The blueprint for Earthdance was 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 join together for the "Prayer for Peace" 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 unifying moment…

 

THE GLOBAL MAAAAAAAAAAAA

 

Honoring the Earth
The Earth is our Home, our Mother. We are born from it's soil and return to it when we die. During this time of accelerated global change and environmental devastation, we are being called to honor our Earth and find new ways to live sustainably on this planet.

 

For more information on the 2008 Global MA please visit www.earthdance.org/globalma

 

Greening the Gathering
We will host a Green dish station with plates, utensils, and a dish washing station. Washing dishes is much more ecologically friendly than going through all that plastic, paper, and Styrofoam plates. Compost will be collected at the end of the event and given to local gardeners with compost bins to cycle waste back through and grow food for next year.

Recycling
Recycling will be clearly marked by signage, and either different colored bins, or blue bags. At the end of the day, volunteers will sort through trash and recycling, and load recycling bags and drop them off at a recycling drop center. Please help make this as easy a process as possible for the trash team and support the greening of our sacred mother the earth.

 Chalk is harmless, cheap and washes away within a few days.  

 

"Be realistic: Demand the impossible."

the conscious dance of the *Peaceful Warrior*…

modern & primitive at the same time, urban & tribal,

independent & interdependent…

 We are resuscitating the art of mystery,

inventing new mythologies & experiential rites

based on our own life experiences by embracing…

 

HOLY LISTENING:

Hearing the eternal song as a direct communication from the Divine Wow to you.

 

AUTONOMOUS NURTURING:

Not waiting for someone to give you what you can give yourself.

 

ECSTATIC GRATITUDE:

Feeling genuine thankfulness with such resplendent intensity

that you generate a surge of endorphins in your body

& slip into a full-scale outbreak of euphoria.

 

ALIGNMENT WITH THE INFINITY OF THE MOMENT:

Reveling in the liberating realization that we are all exactly where we need to be

at all times, even if some of us are temporarily in the midst of trial or tribulation,

& that human evolution is proceeding exactly as it should,
even if we can't see the big picture of the puzzle that would clarify how all the pieces

fit together perfectly

 

AESTHETIC BLISS:

Vividly experiencing the colors, textures, tones, scents, & rhythms of the world around us,

creating a symbiotic intimacy

that dissolves the psychological barriers between ourselves, what we observe,

& what we desire

 

So Come join our Conscious Party ! A Communal Catharsis

evoking spontaneous Healing & a new Spiritual Tradition

based on our collective experience of *The Dance*…

an Embodiment of our Prayers …

to learn music & dancing, & thought it time well spent.
