South Africa- Fire Dance
May 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - May 21, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
We want to send you an invitation to come and be a part of the Fire Dance in South Africa on May19-May 21 at Simunye Ngothando. It would be wonderful to have you here whether you choose to serve on the support crew or as a Dancer. The energy of this Ceremony is amazingly intense as we dance with 5 Fires inside of a Medicine Wheel. Dancers and crew alike will be transformed forever as the spirit of this dance moves through us and fans the fires in our hearts.
This is a 3 day Ceremony and crew and Dancers are both required to be fully present from Friday noon to Sunday late afternoon. It is not possible to attend parts of the Ceremony or to come for a little portion of the time.
This is NOT a traditional Native American Ceremony. This Dance comes from a time before the racial and religious barriers of the world existed. The infinite Circle of the Medicine Wheel predates man and we Dance to expand beyond form, dogma and criteria. We Dance to bring the wholeness back to the planet.
This Dance will ignite the passion and creativity within you to live your life fully as intended by Spirit. It will burn away the thing inside that blocks you and holds you back. The Firedance is about stepping into life fully and completely and the energy of this dance is incredibly powerful! We dance with 5 fires within a Medicine Wheel. The Spirit Keepers of the Directions are Dancing too! Spirit is Dancing in the Fire. It is tangible!
If you are called and if you are ready, the Fires are waiting………..and will forever be carried in your heart as a Fire Dancer!
