"The Universal Circle Dance"
by L. McGuire


Global Prayer and Dance Circles!

2 Corinthians 6:14,Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness?”

     I am by no means supporting or wanting to further the form of worship known as: Circle Dance, Sacred Dance, Sacred Circle Dance, Horas circle, Kolos circle and the Choros circle. The following is to show the many various groups that are joining together. We must remember that when the false messiah shows up, in place of the real one, he will join the whole world under a New World Order. Many Christians, Messianics, Jews and Muslims have started this uniting. Claiming we are all part of Abraham's seed. We all serve the same deity we just call him different names. Many also believe that everything is God and that God is in all, this belief comes from Hinduism. Many believe they will dance around Ha' Shem. Emphasis will be added by me throughout in red!

Celebrate the turning of the seasons with circle dance ~ join hearts and hands, heaven and earth in ancient patterns that create harmony, community and balance, within and without. Move in the footsteps of our ancestors as we enjoy tratitional dances from many cultures, as well as contemporary pieces choreographed in the spirit of ancient folk dance set in the context of the Wheel of the Year. All dances are taught, so no experience is necessary.

When and where are the dances held? The Sacred Circle Dances in New Haven, CT, are held the first Thursday of every month from September through June in the Friends Meetinghouse (the Quakers) at 225 East Grand Avenue in New Haven. We dance from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. (46)




The Prayer Vigil for the Earth, an annual event now in its 14th year, is a gathering of people from multiple backgrounds, traditions and faiths from around the world.

Program for the Annual Prayer Vigil
Sunrise, September 17 thru 3 PM,
September 18, 2005
West Potomac Park - Washington, DC

Note: Due to the spontaneous nature of this event, the number of participants and the amount of silent prayer and meditation, the following serves only as a guide and general outline.
Hello! We invite you to enjoy the 2005 Prayer Vigil for the Earth. Please join our community which is comprised of people from diverse spiritual and religious traditions who are sharing their ancient ceremonies with each other. Our gathering is a 100% volunteer event. Please co-create with us a weekend dedicated to mutual respect, learning, healing, and love.
The Peace Village is designed in a circle to mirror the shape of our Earth.
A fire burns in the center of the circle like a fire burns in the center of the Earth. The circle and the fire symbolize life. They are sacred. You enter the sacred Peace Village through the East Gate, place of the rising sun. There are many activities going on in the Peace Village. There is an area for Silent Prayer for the Earth, a Children's Tipi, an Elder's Tipi, a chanting/singing tipi, a labyrinth, receive healing in Jyorei tipi, do prayers around the Hindu Yantra, a Tibetan stupa, an African altar, and a Jewish Sukkah. All of these can be visited. There is also a enriching program going on at the microphone. Everyone you see has volunteered their time and talents.
Often there are children playing and adults talking quietly. The entire community dances, chants, or participates in story telling at periodic intervals. There are wonderful evening programs under the stars and an opportunity to pray around the fire all night.

At the 2005 Prayer Vigil we are asking everyone to do the following:
To raise the level of tolerance to pioneer in a new consciousness.
To leave the dogma and proselytizing behind.
To allow yourself the opportunity to stretch to see other points of view.
To do more than share your faiths, traditions and customs – take it to the next level of honoring diversity.
To stretch beyond our own comfort zones to participate in the grand experiment to practice tolerance and peace.

To listen.
To be respectful and honor others without judgment.
To focus on our commonalities.
To focus on our relationship with the earth.
To let go of differences and separateness.
To BE in the place we are CHOSING to co-create.
To invite and encourage youth dialogues.
To participate in interfaith, multi-cultural dialogue.

The Prayer Vigil for the Earth has met each year arising from a vision on how to bring how to bring harmony to the peoples of the earth. Each year we meet to:

* Seek Unity where there has been division
* Understanding instead of Conquering
* Honoring where the need to Covet has prevailed

We come together to do this to seek out that commonality which links us to each other, the earth and to that expression of highest principle which each tradition recognizes and yearns to share with each other.

* From the Native Peoples – “we are all related
* From the Christian tradition – “where two or more are gathered in God’s name

* From the Jewish and Islamic traditions – “there is only one God”
* And from all other traditions not mentioned – “unity and understanding:

Come join the search for that which unites us and does not divide us.
Everyone is invited to bring their musical instruments, songs, prayers, and chants on Sunday from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM as we create the sound of people in Celebration and Prayer for Peace on Earth. Thank you all for coming and for your support over the last 13 years!

     A quote by Marga ( circle dance teacher) “We dance in a circle, usually holding hands. No partner is needed. The dances are simple, using repetitive sequences. Each dance is introduced as if it has never been danced before, reviewing the steps before beginning. Thus first-time dancers are able to participate fully in the dancing circle.”



I am reminded of the following:

Wayyiqra/Leviticus 20:24,"But I say to you, "You are going to possess their land, and I Myself give it to you to possess it, a land flowing with milk and honey." I am YHWH (HWHY) your Elohim, who has separated you from the peoples.

Wayyiqra/Leviticus 20:26,"And you shall be set-apart to Me, for I YHWH (HWHY) am set-apart, and have separated you from the peoples to be Mine."

Luke 12:51, (Yahushua speaking) "Do you think that I came to give peace on earth? I say to you, no, but rather division."

2 Corinthians 6:17, "Therefore, "Come out from among them and be separate, says YHWH (HWHY), and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you."
