THE LONG DANCE (at the Birdsong Peace Chamber)  Led by Stephanie Moore.

What is the Long Dance? The Long Dance is a visioning dance held at night under the stars. The dancers move in a circular motion around the corral. It is a time to bring forth associations that lie in the subconscious mind, and by dancing them, they can be brought to conscious levels, owned, and released. It is a time to quest for your spirit, to surrender, to endure. Beautiful Painted Arrow says:  In the Long Dance of Life, every- step awakens three opportunities for the human; One: placement in eternity; Two: purification of past forms; Three: new opportunities for adventure, for in the instances of eternal time, the new always refreshes and cleanses. Arrive early Saturday afternoon and pitch your tent and help prepare the corral A Sweat Lodge follows. Then we hang our Medicine Shield Banners in the corral. Following a light supper, as night falls the dance begins and goes into early morning hours, then the dancers rest. On awakening, we have breakfast, a sharing, and return home early in home afternoon of Sunday.


Oh, and about money, the tuition for the dance is $150. You can donate when you reserve or pay at the dance. There is some scholarship money available for those drawn to dance but who have financial difficulties. Talk to Stephanie if you are not in a position to donate.  No one should miss this dance because they don't have money.
