We wish to welcome you into our growing community of Moon Dancers and supporters around the world.  This is a ceremony to empower the Sacred Feminine, working with the Mexica cosmological system.  There are currently over 10 dances between South, Central and North Americas, with over 1000 women and men who pray with the black obsidian pipe, and Nana Metzli (Grandmother Moon), each month.

What Supporters can do:
We would not be able to fulfill the many duties of our ceremonial work if it weren’t for the support we are offered by men and women.  Supporters arrive with a humble heart, willing to be of service, however it might be needed.  Examples of supporter activities include:

– helping with camp set-up/tear-down
– tending the sacred heart fire
– heating grandfather stones for our lodges
– assisting the kitchen 
– running errands into town as needed
– carving pipe stems
– bringing tea/cocoa for Dancers during their breaks in the night
– heating the Grandmother Drum at the sacred heart fire during breaks in the night
 
Supporters also lend their physical presence, emotional energy, and prayer to the ceremony and the Dancers.  Supporters are offered 1-2 lodges (4 doors) during the course of the Dance.  It is helpful to have supporters who can participate in the full 4 days and nights of ceremony, although they are not required to do so.  Some men and women are only able to participate for limited time, which is also very much appreciated.  The supporter financial contribution is the same ($80), regardless of time spent at the ceremony.
