Welcome All to Dance to Heal the Earth Africa

Grandmother Robin Youngblood and grandfather Bert Gunn would like to invite you to Dance to Heal the Earth, a fasting ceremonial healing dance.

This Sacred Medicine Dance is an opportunity to align yourself with Mother Earth and Father Sky. To connect deeply with your core being and the tree of life and how you serve the earth and all the life that is connected with you.

This dance, facilitated by grandmother Robin Youngblood and grandfather Bert Gunn, has already been danced in many countries (Sweden, Africa, Thailand, the Netherlands, Germany).

Much Love and Blessings to you all and I hope we get to Dance together!

Thank you from our deepest hearts,
Grandmother Robin & Grandfather Bert

What will your participation be on the Dance

You can participate as an Earth Dancer, or Earth Keeper crew, including being a kitchen angel, fire keeper, or ground crew.

Whichever of these calls you, your gift to this dance is prayer. Gratitude for the community we build together and the intention you carry with you. Everyone who attends receives the same blessings and transformative experience.

This dance will change things, not only for the earth, but also in yourself.

Note: This is not a festival, so we ask for deep respect and serious contemplation as you join with us in community, ceremony and celebration.

General information: Once you have decided whether you are going to dance or want to serve as an Earth Keeper, you can register by email. for further details, Dance protocols and directions.

A little background about the Dance in Africa

Our first Dance to Heal the Earth was held in Cape Point, South Africa, November 14-16, 2014. We were joined by Koi San and Khosa Elders, who shared their teachings and dances and song with us. Even the baboons danced with us!

The second Dance took place in November, 2015. It was truly an international dance, with dancers and supporters from North America, Asia and Africa. As always, this year’s dance was profound and powerful. We heard the messages our Relations have for us, fasted for two days, Danced to Heal the Earth and Wove the Web of All Life.

As well, this year we hosted a Seven Generations World Wisdom Gathering, which deepened relationships among the tribes, Afrikaaners and guests from Europe, America, Hawaii and China. Grandmother Robin also facilitated Vision Quest and Pipe Ceremonies, Dance to Heal the Earth, and Co-Creation Workshops.

Remember your prayer-song ~ Dance and pray. Whenever you dance, dance to heal the earth. Not just when you’re dancing, but always. Live the dance, whenever you move, in all you do, dance to heal the earth.

“Having been involved in various ceremonies and ceremony work I came to the dance with an open mind and without expectation, for these can be an burden when entering the temple within.

From the moment we entered the arbour a peace settled around us and the dance began. Everyone was present and focused on the tree and a power was forming within the group. The space was alive with the rhythm of the drum. The songs were sung. The flow of unknown forces where moving within us all. The dancers danced to the rhythm of their hearts. The power of life was coursing through our veins and we were there at the centre of the universe. Time was no more. As the days passed the power grew. The focus of each person grew and our strength grew. The prayers became more focused and our inner visions became sharper. Some saw the energies radiating within the tree. Others found a strengh and a peace within. Some let go of old pains and hurts, healing within themselves. Not one person faltered, taken by the power within. And the Earth responded. We all responded as one. One great dance, one great soul, one great life. The dance continued.”
