Drum Dance and Dream for Peace is a fundraising effort of the World Dreams Peace Bridge to aid children traumatized by war and violence. Since 2003 the Peace Bridge, an international group created by Tidewater resident Jean Campbell, has worked directly with Iraqi refugees in Jordan and the US. This year, proceeds from the Solstice Celebration will also go toward the development of a local training program for therapists and counselors: Heal Trauma Fast! www.healtraumafast.com

This email is also being sent to members of the World Dreams Peace Bridge and friends of the Bridge globally. If you can join us in drumming by forming a circle of your own on Solstice, let me know. (Take pictures!:) Anywhere you might be on this Solstice, even if you are alone, pat a drum for Peace--and for the children.

If you would like to contribute to the goals of this fundraising project, you will find a PayPal button at the top of this page.

All donations are tax deductible in the US, through The iMAGE Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Hope to see and hear you soon!

For the Children

Listen to the Heartbeat of the Earth

In preparation for Drum Dance and Dream for Peace 2011, global peace dreamers have begun a daily meditation practice: Listen to the Heartbeat of the Earth. This is a meditation of stilling and listening. Join us.

From this meditation, we will create a Ceremony for the Future of the World's Children.

A Prayer from Native American Medicine Man Woableza given in 2007:

16 children of the colors of mankind will gather together.

Four each will stand in the four directions: west, north, east and south.

The children will dance in a circle, facing the mother earth.

After encircling four times, dancing for Mother Earth barefoot, they will stop.

They will say a simple prayer in their language for Mother Earth and all her inhabitants.

Four grandmothers of four races will bring them bowls painted red, white, yellow and blue, sixteen bowls in all.

The grandmothers will fill the bowls with what the children of the future will need such as: clean water, heritage seeds from all corners of the earth, beautiful flowers, and incense from all over the world.

At the end of the ceremony, the children will again turn, facing outward toward a new path of continuing life. The large bowls of flowers will be tossed in the air so that the children may dance with flowers at their feet. The music can be drumming and harps.

I pray that this happens
