“The Earth is our Mother.
Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth.
If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the Earth. This we know.
All things are connected like the blood that unites one family.
All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. We did not weave the web of life; we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the Web, we do to ourselves.
(~ Chief Seattle, Duwamish)
Grandmother Robin Youngblood and Grandfather Bert Gunn would like to invite you to join us for three days of Earth Dance Ceremonies and teachings. This Sacred Fasting Dance is YOUR opportunity to honor and align yourself with Mother Earth and Father Sky; to understand more deeply Who You Are, and How You are to Serve the Earth and All Our Relations. We will listen to the Songs and Rhythms of the Earth; the Elements; Animals; Plants, and Stone People. As we hear the messages our Relations have for us, we will fast and Dance to Heal the Earth and Weave the Web of All Life. This may be the most profoundly touching ceremony you’ll ever participate in. Please ask in prayer, and if the answer is YES, join us. Please let us know as soon as possible, as many are asking to participate.
It’s Time! We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!!
“Remember your prayer-song ~ Dance and pray. Whenever you dance, dance to heal the earth. Not just when you’re dancing, but always. Live the dance, whenever you move, in all you do, dance to heal the earth.”
“Dancing is power. Dancing is prayer. Some say that all is dance. Now there’s a big dance coming, a Dance to Heal the Earth. Soon this dance will be done in a big way, in the old way, on sacred ground.
All living things will take part. Dance to Heal the Earth! Let your feet beat a healing rhythm into the earth.
Let your feet beat a strengthening rhythm for those who struggle the hardest. Let your feet beat a life-giving rhythm for all peoples, regardless of race or national boundary, regardless of whether we’re human or whether we’re the trees, the air, the fish, the birds, the buffalo, the bear, the crow. Our dance is a prayer, and our songs, rhythms and our breath give life.”

In this time of great change, Mother Earth needs our support. Each of us has a Life Purpose that serves the needs of All Creation. Some of us already know what that is, and how to share our gifts and talents for the good of all.
Some of us are still in the process of discovering our mission in life.
Dance to Heal the Earth is a profound focal point for discovery, initiation, healing, and manifesting our intention,
in alignment with the Great Creation, Mother Earth and the Core of our Beings.
Every movement in the Dance is a prayer of profound focus and intention.
Drumming, Dance, Song and Ceremony are the foundation of every indigenous culture ~ and we are all indigenous to Mother Earth and our country of origin.
In the way I’ve been taught, all ceremonial dances originated through the Women, the Birthers.
These ceremonies were given to our Brothers, as the Protectors of the vision.
In some cultures, the masculine became the dominant force for many centuries.
It is now time for the feminine to re-emerge, and to co-create balance and restore harmony between the masculine and feminine energies in order to support a healthy living environment for All Our Relations.
Whether you attend as a Dancer, Drummer/Singer or Supporter, your gift to this dance is a prayer. We are grateful for the community we are building, and every intention you carry.
Our work in this Dance will be felt throughout the world.
Once you have committed to this two day fasting dance (only dancers will fast), we will send you protocols and a waiver. If you have any medications you need to take; any issues with fasting (you will be drinking water); any concerns or questions, we need to be aware of them. Please fill out the waiver, and we will talk directly to assure you have the protection and awareness you will need to fulfill your commitment and focus solely on your Dance.
Dance to Heal the Earth is focus, gratitude, and celebration.
