MAY 6 & 7, 2005

This is a visionary ceremonial experience to help you reach your next level of spiritual growth and evolution. 


The Dance for the Mother  (Corn Mother Dance) is a visionary ceremonial experience  to help you re


ach your inner core and your inner  vision(s). 

It is a visionary ceremony to  help you rapidly advance your spiritual growth and experience.  It is a ceremony to honor our Mother Earth,  our Mothers, Fathers, Ancestors, and Children.  Is to honor all who have come before us, and the generations to follow.  It is to honor the Mother INSIDE EACH OF US—MALE OR FEMALE! We have been Mother/Parent in many lifetimes  regardless of our role in this lifetime.    

Preregistration (a MUST) appreciated by April 1.  $150 deposit required. 

The donation requested for the event is  $275 per person ($235 for CCWH members)  and includes sweat lodge, prayer tie materials, Farewell Feast on Saturday evening, a donation to the Land Keepers, food for the workers, and drummers,  and an honorarium to Visionary Grandfather, Beautiful Painted Arrow, Joseph Rael, who, at great personal risk, followed his vision of bringing ceremonial dances to non-native peoples.  He led his visionary dances and ceremonies for 16 years.  Before his retirement in 1997, he blessed Rev. Sherry to become a visionary Dance Chief at the completion of her Sun Moon Dance (4 four day visionary dance).  

THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY NOT OPEN TO MANY,  ARRANGED FOR YOU BY CCWH—if you are wondering if this ceremonial experience could be for you and for a QUANTUM LEAP IN YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH AND PATH,  the answer is YES!
If you feel called to the Dance, “Answer the CALL! “.

 There are no prerequisites to participate in this event other than your own personal desire for growth and the inner calling to follow your path.  

The Dance begins with a sweatlodge on Friday afternoon, and ends with a feast and celebration on Saturday evening, what happens in between is light years of spiritual growth and development!    Some people have felt that their spiritual awareness and advancement has progressed as much as 4, 5, even 10 years in just a short period of time after experiencing this type of ceremony.  

You will need  to bring overnight camping gear.
Dancers will also have a support person to energetically support them during their dance and nurture them at the end of their dance. A $35 food fee is requested for each support person, unless they prefer to prepare their own camp meals. 
 Support people will also need to bring their own tent and chair.  A full list of items needed for the dance will be given to you upon registration.  You will be fasting from food, water and speaking during the actual time of your dance (approx.
 24 hours), so prepare for your fast by reducing/eliminating caffeine, salts, meats,  etc. from your diet prior to the dance.

Please—no visitors, guests, children, pets or spectators are permitted.   In respect for the ceremony, no nudity, alcohol or recreational drugs are permitted at any time. Please bring all prescribed medications with you for the weekend and any additional OTC medications that you might need.

"The inspiration will come in on its own accord. All we have to do is let go of our blocks. We let go through movement. One of the ways I do it is through dancing. 

Because God is Wah-Mah-Chi, breath, matter, and movement. If we are dancing, we are breathing. We have to breathe, otherwise we'll die. We're breathing, we're dancing, which is movement, and we're letting go of blocks and bringing in new physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energies through that movement.

We spend a weekend during the year doing this dance, and once we start this practice, then for the rest of the 365 days after a particular dance, we'll have moments of inspiration.

What is it like for the dancer after the long dance, when we've danced through the night without stopping? After we get through our tiredness, there is a great clarity. We feel clearly placed in the world and happy. Then we might have moments starting to break through every now and then, when everything seems to be shimmering and alive. Suddenly everything seems to be in connections.

Suddenly, in that instant, we are stimulated mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually. The dancing, the chanting, the fasting, or whatever are ways to create the possibility of receiving inspiration."

Dance Background


Dancers will sleep in the arbor on Friday night.  You may elect to
have a support person outside of the dance arbor if they choose.
Dancers will enter the dance draped in their white sheets and dance Friday night with their sheets covering their outfits. 

You will fast during the dance, but will be allowed to drink water if needed.  Please bring water if you think you may want  for  during the dance.
Please do not drink in front of other dancers.
Please prepare for your fast in the weeks before the dance by cutting down or eliminating, sugars, salts, caffeine, nicotine, and meat from your daily diet.   
This is so you do not have detox or withdrawal during your dance, so that your dance will be focused on YOUR dance, and not the cravings of your body.   
Please bring any and all medications that you may need, or that you take on a daily basis.

Each Dance requires the effort and commitment on the part of the dancer.
Dancers begin to experience the power of the Dance form the moment they make the commitment to dance.
Anyone who feels called to dance should consider making this commitment, to the Dance and to Themselves.

Dancers should bring:
1 or 2 dance outfits, (skirts and shirts required for both men and women) cotton is best.
Sweat Lodge outfit (bathing suit or shirt with skirt for women,
trunks or skirt with shirt for men) 
Leggings to wear under your dance outfit if it is cold
2 large towels
Comfortable dancing shoes, tevas, boots or moccasins
bedding, bedroll, sleeping bag, pillow, 2 - 3 tarps
3 white sheets
1 sheet or blanket of their favorite color/s
4 white hand towels (to be handed in at the beginning
of the dance)
Bug spray, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, rain poncho, any other items you might need for your personal comfort during the dance.
Once you enter the dance you will not leave until your dance is done except for potty breaks, or as directed by the Dance Chief.
Folding camp chair
1 -2 gallons drinking water
Material for prayer ties.
(string, scissors, tobacco, sage, cornmeal, cotton fabric
1/4 yard each of red, yellow, black, white, blue, green, lavendar)
1 bag of yellow, white or blue cornmeal
Sage (white or grey)

Your support person will need to bring:
Tent, tarps, bedding, chair,  2 day supply of food, ice, water, drinks, (or make a $35 donation
and they can eat with the workers for the 2 days)

sun hat, poncho, sunglasses, bug spray, sunscreen, medicines, jacket.  Your support person will take care of you when you come out of the dance, they should have whatever you might like to eat, drink or wear after the dance.

There is a feast provided for everyone (Dancers,
Support People, Workers) at the end of the dance.    After the dance, everyone will help with
dismantling the sweatlodge, kitchen and dance arbor. 

Plan to dress in layers for changing weather, and bring a poncho in case it rains.  Sweat pants and sweat shirt with hood are recommended for night time. 


If you would like to support the Dance, (whether you are a participant or not), all help in preparing for the dance is greatly appreciated and is a way to benefit from the Dance energy, as each person involved is connected with the heightened energy coming from the ceremony.  Preparation assistance is needed during the two weeks prior to the Ceremony.

Pre-Dance help is needed for preparing the arbor:

  • Mowing Grass, Raking, and general groundskeeping tasks
  • setting up tents and canopies for the workers, drummers, and kitchen area
  • setting up the sweatlodge
  • chopping firewood or donating firewood
  • donation of large stones for the sweatlodge
  • setting up the solar shower and water connections

Rev. Sally Perry, Spirit Medicine for leading us to Joseph.."
