OPENING CEREMONY ~ Friday, 12:30 – 1:30 PM Main Stage
Gathering together at our Opening Ceremony is a rite of passage for all who attend. As we remove ourselves from the world to which we belonged and arrive at the Threshold to the one we have chosen for the weekend we step into the liminal world where we learn, commune, celebrate and vision the world we wish to create. Secret knowledge awaits us in our days together! This weekend we belong to each other, the land and the missions we serve.
Here we will hear messages from our host and the Spiritual Director of Sunrise Ranch, David Karchere, and our beloved Producers. Here we will hear the prayers of one of our Elders Grandfather Little Thunder, and Mayan Priestess Aumrak. Here we will witness The Sacred Dance of Venus and Mars, with The Crescent Dance Project an open community of dancers that explores themes of the sacred through improvised movement and choreography. Here we will also hear the voices of Phoenix, Colorado’s Transgender Community Choir a collaborative intergenerational social justice arts collective.
Here we gather together and make ourselves known to each other, set our intentions, sing and dance together… Here is where we activate the miracles that we are about to receive!
Bless and be Blessed!
