San Francisco, California Sep 17, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Earthdance, a global beacon for conscious gatherings, proudly announces its 26-year anniversary with a vibrant array of more than 14 events worldwide, including three captivating celebrations in South Africa.
Every year in September, Earthdance events are held worldwide and culminate with a synchronized moment of intention, the “Prayer for Peace. These events “give back” a portion of their proceeds to a local charity.
Mark your calendars for the weekend of September 23, 2023, as Earthdance unfolds its magic across the globe and in three distinct South African locations: Johannesburg, Durban, and Nelson Mandela Bay. These transformative gatherings, set against the backdrop of the enchanting South African landscape, will inspire unity, harmony, and positive change, aligning with this year’s theme, “Evoluting Through Love.”
Johannesburg: A Beacon of Positive Impact
Johannesburg, the vibrant heart of South Africa, has a rich tradition of hosting transformative Earthdance gatherings that leave a lasting impact on local communities.
Jade Boel, Earthdance Johannesburg Organizer, reflects on their past successes, saying: “Earthdance 2017 was our first event, and we had over 2000 people attend, reaching roughly 88,000 more. (From our event), we were able to help the venue owner out of debt and were able to feed the local nursery school kids (in Diepsloot) for a year; supply them with stationary and learning equipment; as well as employ all the local farmers, workers and security companies in the area. (We) generally just boost the communities and the economy wherever we go.”
This year, Earthdance Johannesburg expects more than a thousand attendees, focusing on arts, culture, and unity. The event will feature three stages, including two dedicated to electronic music and one to acoustic tunes; along with workshops, meditations, yoga classes, art classes, speakers, fire dancers, stand-up poetry and comedy.
Durban Kwazulu Natal: Celebrating Earth’s Heartbeat
In Durban, Kwazulu Natal, Earthdance takes on a unique character, embracing the essence of Mother Earth. Organizer Brent Austin describes it as “a gathering of like-minded people who come together to celebrate Mother Earth through song, dance, and the heartbeat of our drums.” This intimate gathering will be held at and supports the Zuvuya Mountain Sanctuary. It promises a powerful resonance among kindred souls.
Nelson Mandela Bay: 13 Years of Heartfelt Giving
Earthdance Nelson Mandela Bay celebrates its 13th year with a profound commitment to charity. This event, hosted at a private riverside resort dedicated to conservation, offers a camping and entertainment experience focused on “Stress-Free Outdoor Clubbing.” The event supports the Jehovah Jireh Haven, a non-profit organization which created a place for the safety of vulnerable South African children in Alexandria, Eastern Cape.
These South African Earthdance events stand as pillars of unity and transformation within their communities, fostering positive change while nurturing cultural and environmental well-being.
