Earthdance celebration next week in Markleeville

Provided to the Tribune

On the weekend of Sept. 15, nearly half a million world citizens in more thanr 60 countries will join together for the world’s largest synchronized music and dance festival for peace and to support humanitarian causes through the global language of music and dance. The defining moment of each Earthdance event is a synchronized link-up, (4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time) when every event around the world plays a specially produced song called “The Prayer for Peace” at exactly the same time.

This magic moment will be the highlight of the 11th annual Earthdance International peace festival, and will be the first time in recorded history that global participants will attune to a special specific frequency that is derived from the natural sound of the Earth itself (The Shuman Resonance). Earthdance International is the world’s largest synchronized global dance and music festival that unites more than 350 locations in 60 counties to support humanitarian causes and world peace. The defining moment of Earthdance is the global link up where each event participates in the “Prayer for Peace” at the same time.

World citizens will join together in venues across the world from large scale festivals, concert halls and clubs, to city parks, community halls, and living rooms from morning in the Australian rain forest, midnight in London and sunrise over the Himalayas to honor the Prayer for Peace in a profound and powerful unifying moment.

This mega-event’s mission is to foster an environment of peace and harmony throughout the global sphere while supporting nonprofit humanitarian charities and peace-related causes.
