Earth Dance Manila 2011

After last year's memorable Earth Dance, the event has been much awaited by many people in the Pagan community.

This year's Earth Dance though  is a lot less Pagan-ish. The location was in the posh Bonifacio Global City which was nice enough, but I found it quite difficult to find and to get to. There were a lot less people who were able to attend than before, and much of the non-Pagan crowd were seemingly of the "upper class" type. Frankly I was missing last year's larger venue, as well as the Pagan Pride day, the Incan shamans and priestesses, the giant bonfire, the prayer tent, the overnighter, the globally synchronized prayer, etcetera.

That is not to say this Earth Dance isn't cool though. Dancing under the sky, barefoot, and together with friends old and new is always tons of fun.

The party ended early but with a flare. Fire lanterns were lit bringing our wishes to the sky. Only as soon as the last of the fire lanterns reached the clouds, the first drops of the coming storm began to fall. 

Blessed be Gaia!

These kids know how to jam.

Ate Bet and Khaye lets it all out.

I love the bamboo bikes. Mm, I love the sound of that. "bamboo bikes".

Fire dancers and fire lanterns. (and a nice pair of legs)

Up, up and away!
