Planetary Dance is open to everyone. In this ritual, people dedicate their dance to someone/thing in need of support. As all run, walk & pulse in concentric circles to the steady beat of the drum, everyone creates a moving mandala. Each step becomes a prayer for healing. BYO picnic & stay for a post-dance lunch.
Planetary Dance was first created by dancer Anna Halprin. Her aim was to help the Mt. Tamalpais community heal after the deaths of 7 rape victims on the mountain by a serial killer. Five days after the dance was performed for the first time, the Trailside Killer was caught. This dance has been performed worldwide for 37 years. Learn more on www.lifeartbeing.org/festival
