In relation to this years Earthdance theme of "Transformation" one or more talking circles will take place this year at Earthdance. These aim to help examine what areas can bring transformation locally and globally taking the energy of dancing and gathering for peace into the places needing it. Look for the Talking Circle area. These circles are intended for respectful listening not just talking. Some background on talking circles will be provided to those new to them to open each circle. All participants are expected to be sober. Gratitude to Chief Phil Lane Jr who has shared this approach with our dance community and many others.
Master of Ceremonies: JAIAquarian

"Whoi Whoi, Chaythoos, Kanaka Ranch. Before there was a Stanley Park, there were villages on the peninsula. Stanley Park was by no means the pristine wilderness that we often imagine when it was designated as a park in 1888." - Stanley Park at 125: Faith, forgotten people, reclaiming a place in history, http://churchforvancouver.ca/stanley-park-at-125-faith-forgotten-people-reclaiming-a-place-in-history/
"Millennia-old native village sites in Stanley Park were still in use by first nations people in the 1880s when surveyors and road builders knocked the homes down to create the Park Drive perimeter road.
Road workers chopped away part of an occupied native house that was impeding the surveyors at the village of Chaythoos (pronounced 'chay toos'), near Prospect Point." - Before Stanley Park: First nations sites lie scattered throughout the area, http://www.canada.com/story_print.html?id=4286a015-9cbf-43ae-827f-00c5c5eae3f0
"Prayer for Peace" to be played at Global Linkup time (5pm Vancouver time):
"We are one global family
All colors, All races
One world united.
We dance for peace and the healing of our planet Earth
Peace for all nations.
Peace for our communities.
And peace within ourselves.
As we join all dance floors across the world,
let us connect heart to heart.
Through our diversity we recognize Unity.
Through our compassion we recognize Peace.
Our love is the power to transform our world
Let us send it out
