Help us raise funds for the Night Turtle Dance!
We appreciate your support!
This year will be the 7th year of the dance. We are so deeply grateful for the way that The Night Turtle Dance continues to flower in greater numbers each year. It is clear that this dance which started in the meadows of Washington, is taking on a life of its own seeded by the many who wish to support the great gift of ceremony, and Mother Earth. We have now been invited to dance in the United Kingdom, in Hawaii and in Mexico! But we are still in the seedling stages and we need your help, right here, right now for this year's dance, and our ceremonies to come, globally...
1 Turtle Altar, 50 Dancers, 6 Drummers, 10 helpers & YOU!
The Night Turtle Dance is not an event for an audience, it is a ceremony that opens and welcomes everyone who wishes to join in loving the Earth. This ceremony was borne of a vision honoring Mother Earth, with everyone supporting in some way. Most do this by dancing, others by singing and drumming, others are the backbone crew who build the altar, tend the fire, lead the dancers, and oversee all the many details. Everyone has a part, and this year we are hoping you will take part in this sacred ceremony, too, by helping make it happen through your contributions. We are so grateful for your support!
Why is "The Night Turtle Dance" Important?
...My body, my clothes, my home, my planet...
The Earth gives us EVERYTHING. Food, clothes, shelter, the ground upon which we stand.
Several years ago Sarah brought into being a beautiful vision: She saw dancers all clad in white flying over the grass like geese on the back of a huge turtle. Each year more people, of all ages and abilities join, moving in beautiful formation all night long in a series of patterns, with a stamina that surpasses even their own hopes and dreams. Mother Earth has been so generous with us; this ceremony is a way to give love back to her.
