LONG DANCE 2018 was a deeply moving Ceremony!
We are so happy to have shared this year's Long Dance ceremony with the brothers and sisters who attended! Those that were unable to attend were missed and held in the hearts of all.
This was our last ceremony on this beautiful piece of land that held us for these last few years. Much gratitude to the land and everyone who contributed to making the space such a powerful place to pray.
We're looking for Land!
Please let us know if you have land or a lead for land that we could enrich with our annual Long Dance Ceremony and Vision Quest. Please do keep this prayer forward at your personal alters.
We've got big plans! Keep an eye out for announcements of upcoming events. Start pulling items you may want to donate to the RAFFLES!
Videos are being edited! We will be offering teachings from elders through our website. You will have access to all of our content with your contribution. Existing contributors will automatically be added.
Small interview clips will be posted on Facebook and Instagram (@circlesofempowerment) in the months to come, so keep an eye out for that as well!
Our next Sweat Lodge is Saturday, October 20 @ 11:00 am. Potluck to follow.
Exact address is 756 Carpenter Canyon Rd. (AKA Hwy 227) Arroyo Grande, CA 93420
When accessing the site, do not go to the house, access the back yard off of the side street La Vida. Please park along the road.
