Planetary Dance is a dance with a purpose. It aims to bring peace among people and harmony with the Earth. We each dedicate our dance to someone or something in need of support (e.g., a sick or dying loved one, a troubled species, a child facing difficulties, etc.) before entering the dance arena.
As people run, walk, or simply stand in a series of concentric circles we create a moving mandala. By dancing to the steady heartbeat of the drums, we become one collective body, and each step upon the Earth becomes a prayer for healing.
Our Portland Planetary Dance kicks off the annual Life.Art.Being Integrative Arts Festival each summer, organized by Be Space and the Portland Shambhala Center.
We’re surrounded by amazing beauty right at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. Share the magic of the day with friends and family. Bring your own picnic lunch, stay after the Dance and get to know others.
