Join Us Around the Tree
Folks have been connecting with the Tree and dancing in place since fairly early in the history of the dance; it may not be something you were aware of. When the dance circle has felt especially full to you, with many more people dancing than were visible, it was full, and not only from the Other Side Camp. A number of people have experienced the feeling of being present at the Tree when they were hundreds of miles away, with their prayers swelling our ranks and the power of our songs. This is something that can be achieved consciously when done safely; it is powerful, effective, and ideal for the time we are in.
Dancing In Place Guidelines:
Remember that you already have a living connection to the ceremony no matter where it takes place from the moment you formally commit to dance. That thread is the reason folks sometimes experience sensitivity or a sense of displacement while the dance is running — others say they feel like they have ‘tuned in’. However, you are responsible for consciously reactivating and nourishing that thread of connectivity at every dance. Creating a safe space and grounding yourself as you begin this work will anchor that energetic thread for you, and allow you to move your prayers along the thread with intent directly to our circle and the Tree. Every conscious connection amplifies the power of our prayers, and how it ripples out into the world.
