Philippine Events: Earthdance Manila 2009 Postponed
Due to circumstances beyond our control, such as Mother Nature, we have decided to move the Earthdance Manila 2009 celebrations to next week. We will announce the date and time when the production team has had a chance to meet.
As much as it would’ve been a wonderful experience to celebrate Earthdance synchronized with the rest of the world, we really have to humble ourselves to Mother Nature, and allow her to do her thing. It’s actually rather funny how such a circumstance has to happen to the Philippines, but then again I guess we have yet another reason to stand out from the rest of the world. So while the rest of the world will be synchronized in their celebrations, we will just have to wait a week after – on delayed telecast – as most of us in the Philippines would understand.
Nevertheless, the spirit of oneness and peace that Earthdance stands for is not lost just because of our delayed event. I’d like to believe that we carry this spirit with us in our daily lives, and beyond one event. So even if we may not be in synch with the rest of the world, we will still have a cause to celebrate. And next week, we will still carry the same program for all those who will participate.
In the meantime, should the weather get better, then perhaps we will have a more intimate celebration to coincide with the global prayer that was schedule at 7am of Septemeber 27. If there are those who are still interested in gathering later to celebrate Earthdance in a more modest (and certainly drier) fashion, then send me an SMS, so we can inform you of the contingency plan. It may not be the same hype that was promised, but it is still an opportunity to get together and share our energy with the rest of the world in celebration of peace. And then, there’s still next week to look forward to, and certainly with more sunshine. However, the weather and the situation and the disaster makes this gathering seem impossible. Nevertheless…
In the spirit of Earthdance, we would like everyone to tune in some positive energy at 7PM (wherever you are) for the mitigation of Ondoy and its effects throughout our country, and also for the unity and peace around the world. Thank you for your intentions.
Thank you to all for understanding, and we hope to see you next week.
Love and Light.
