“Our grandparents left us many ceremonies which help us reconnect with ourselves. The Moon Dance is one of them. Nowadays men are being included in the Moondance circles, since we entered another vibration, the vibration of the sixth sun, which is the age of Aquarius. Now men and women have the chance to make a change in the harmony between the Sun and the Moon. This will provide the opportunity to the families of the future to have a more spiritual and committed life with our children and mother earth.
The dance is an opportunity to connect with our internal being and with the essences that life provides, the dance, the singing and being awake help our being enter into an elevated state of sensibility and value, life, health and family. This spiritual tradition provides the quality of making us very sensitive and to love everything that has life and movement. It is the Red Road from the heart, using a variety of techniques that connect us with the spirit. The dance, the force of the moon and the masters of the night and nature, let us vibrate in harmony with the whole universe. Dancing as a family, united in one circle of love and good will, unifying our intentions of a better life, gives strength to our prayers to the creator.”
Reuniting women, men and children with the Earth and the essence of the Moon, this sacred, four-day ceremonial dance is a remembrance of the ancient traditions of these lands of the Americas. Through sharing sacred songs, teachings and movement, a deep and profound healing can be evoked. Each step is a prayer. PachaMama makes an offering of its time, sleep and comfort while sending up prayers, songs, wishes and gratitude – as a collective and as individuals.
Each night begins and ends with a short Sweat Lodge, opening and closing this powerful prayer. Days are spent in rest and listening to Palabra – talks given by the Mexica elders Malinali (Mexico) and Itzpaplotl (Puerto Rico), in which they share the wisdom of the Red Road through their understanding of Aztec or Mexica ways. Passing this knowledge on to this generation and the next allows the recognition of unity among mankind, walking together on the Earth as One. The Elders or “Abuelos” share their knowledge and comprise a powerful source of guidance in the Dual Dance – not only sharing teachings on traditional ways, but also providing counsel and using their wisdom to navigate the dance. Inter-generational togetherness is an integral part of of this tradition.
PachaMama has completed seven years of holding the Dual Dance on its land.
The ceremony will be preceded by these activities:
– Danza Mexica classes with Kuauhtli
– Palabra (talks) with the Mexica elders
– Dancers and Supporters will be spending four nights down by the River and should bring camping gear.
– Prayer kits and a special outfit required for Dancers should be pre-ordered and purchased in the Jungle Shop.
– Meals for Dancers and Supporters are included in the price, from dinner on the first day through brunch on the last.
Supporters are much needed and appreciated to help hold the beautiful Dual Dance prayer. This is a unique Red Road ceremony that brings the village together, reinforces the ties among the community and nature and strengthens the bond between the Feminine and the Masculine. Supporters will hold various tasks ranging from serving meals to providing hot drinks to the dancers during the dance and working with the fire to prepare the sweat lodges.
