The Dance For All People comes from a tradition of the Great Basin/Plateau peoples that has been revitalized by Native people to perpetuate the healing and renewal of Mother Earth and all her beings. The Dance is about each person taking personal responsibility to make this mission of healing and renewal a part of their daily lives. Through the vessel of the Dance, we focus our hearts, minds, and prayers on the transformation of our inner beings based on the premise that we must become in our inner lives what we intend to create in the outer world.
The purpose of the present-day Dance is, as it has always been, about healing and renewal: for ourselves, our families, and Mother Earth. In our quest and struggle with modern living we may have forgotten how to pray in a good way, how to seek and give heartfelt council in community, how to receive Spirit in our hearts and lives. In our busy-ness we sometimes even forget how much healing work we have to do! With all the planetary and personal shiftings being experiencing daily, the need for Ceremony in our lives is paramount.
Dance For All People YouTube Channel has greatly expanded its offerings, including a brand-new series entitled "What Is Prayer?" with 18 segements recorded in Wolf Creek, OR, in June. More segments will be forthcoming in the future. All interviews were conducted, recorded and edited by Webworks.
The Dance For All People web site features information about the Dance, how-to articles, profiles of elders past and present connected to the Dance, a large reading list, and other articles of interest to current and new participants. Funding for the site was provided by NCPC and their generous donors.
