Peace Day - September 21, 2008 - 27
EARTHDANCE2007 mExico city Earthdance Mexico City was held in Rancho Betania, in the countryside of Mexico City. We had 45 participants and the prayer for Peace took place at 3:00 PM. The event lasted for five hours and we had a wonderful time filled with drumming, dancing, creativity, and play. “This experience was incredible, the participation of the Global Healing Association and their program “Kids for Kids” was especially amazing. For five hours we sang, danced and prayed. We devoted a lot of time to participate in several art activities filled with love and spirituality. Our kids provided us with a day full of enthusiasm, emotions and livelihood” NotesfromArouNdtheGLoBe minnEaPoLis, mn Minneapolis, MN celebrated it’s 4th year of participation with Earthdance in 2007, holding a magical event in the beautiful location of Minnehaha Falls Park. Our festival ran 12 noon - 10 pm and included 2 stages featuring belly dancers, DJ’s, spoken word artists, fire spinners, reggae, hip-hop, bluegrass, world music bands, and a host of local folk singers. We also featured a donation based Healing Arts area, a Kiddie Village where kids could play, and a Food & Feast area where we successfully fed nearly 400 people with yummy organic soups and salads! The highlight of course was the synchronized Prayer for Peace, which we began with a procession up, over, and around the falls, then back to the park where about 300 people gathered in the circle. Underwater speakers sounded the Om into the waters leading to the Mississippi, a mere 200 miles from its source. This was followed by a raging drum and dance jam for a little over an hour. We managed to raise about $100 for our sponsored charity, Friends of the Mississippi and provided a lot of exposure to their worthwhile cause. Water blessing was going on all day! All in all, a successful event and we look forward to an even better one in 2008!” www.wholeplane�ours.com
