Dragon Dance of Creation

Friday November 2– Sunday November 4, 2018

Center for Peace, Seymour, TN
 
 Calling all Dancers!
 
 



 If you have been WANTING to Dance, but have resisted or hesitated because “it’s too hot”, “I can’t physically do it”, “it’s not time for me”, “I’m scared”, or any of the other things our little brains tell us to hold us back from BE-ing who we are truly meant to be…
 
Come join Chief Candy Barbee for The Dragon Dance of Creation on 2-4 November 2018 at the Center for Peace in Seymour, Tennessee. This is a Ceremonial DANCE that is based on the Native American Medicine Wheel and is inclusive of many beliefs and traditions. It is a Mystical Dance that helps you identify, connect with and expand your Creative Soul.

We are Dancing in November so it won’t be too hot. This is a special Dance with many other ceremonies other than “Just Dancing.”

 
Come DANCE and CREATE while embracing the Directions and Elements. 
Please wear your regalia/costumes/outfits that may include those of the Indigenous Peoples, the Fairies, the Highlanders, the Knights, the Vikings, the Kahunas, and your Power Animals.

Dance through old beliefs that keep you captive in the present.
Create space within your Heart and Head for new ideas and inspiration to live a Free and Creative Life.
Get in touch with your Creative Soul.
Create Medicine tools.

 
The cost for participation in the Dragon Dance of Creation is $365.00 (a dollar a day for a Year of Inspiration). 
The cost to be a Crew Member is $50- under 12 years old is $25.
The cost for senior Dancers (those people over 65 years old) and for Dancers under the age of 18 is $200.00.
There is no charge for the ceremony itself-only to cover the costs of the venue and expenses.

This will be an interactive Dance with plenty of time for dancing and processing as well as doing creative activities. Come join in the FUN with us and find your Muse!

Please contact Dragon Chief Candy for more information or any questions or concerns that you may have regarding this ceremony.

Monthly Fire Ceremony ~ October 7th
 
 Fire Ceremony
 
 Sunday, October 7th
 6:45 pm
 
~ led by Katy Koontz
 
The purpose of the FIRE CEREMONY is to heal and purify both the planet’s physical oceans and the oceans of cosmic thought.
 
At 7 pm local time, fire elders light ceremonial fires at each of the Peace Sound Chambers around the world. Those present watch the fire in silence until it burns out, giving to it what we want to transmute in our lives and staying open to the messages and teachings it brings.
 
Come to the fire ceremony if you enjoy focused meditation, if you are looking for new ideas and insights, if you seek to release and transmute something that does not serve you, if you want to join in the service of healing the oceans (both physical and cosmic) or if you’re simply called to participate in a ceremony that honors this powerful elemental force.
 
We suggest you arrive by 6:45 pm.
All are welcome.
Donations are appreciated.
Friends of the Center
 


 
We are asking for sponsorship through monthly donations.
 
These donations do not need to be large but if those who love the Center for Peace could help by committing a few dollars on a monthly basis it could be the difference between always hoping that someday we will be able to build or provide those needed areas (i.e. showers, sleeping areas, restrooms) and actually making it happen.
 
 
If you have participated in any of the programs, offerings, and events that occur on an ongoing basis at the Center for Peace you have already felt the personal blessings from these activities. Our mission is to be a Spiritual Center for our community which extends to anyone open to this learning path.
 
 
 
2018 Dances at the Center For Peace


 
Beginning in the early 1980's Joseph Rael ~ Beautiful Painted Arrow, a Visionary and Mystic of the Ute and Tiwa Pueblo people, began traveling the world sharing his Vision of Peace Sound Chambers and his insights about the healing power of Ceremony.
 
To assist people seeking personal experiences in the Spiritual realm, he began leading sacred, non-traditional Dances that Spirit brought to him in Visions. For 15 years he traveled the world leading three sacred Dances which came to him in Visions: the Long Dance, Drum Dance and Sun-Moon Dance.
 
Since Joseph's retirement in 1997 the work has grown and many of Joseph’s students, with his blessing, have now received Visions of different Dances of their own.
