Letter of Petition
The new dancers must previously communicate with the Council of the Moondance Atlachinoli Meztli, and send their request letter to enter the circle. This should be a simple letter expressing the wishes and intentions why they want to participate in the Moondance (the petition letter is requested to be brief and in English, via email, in case it is very difficult to write it in English the letter can be received in your native language). email: email@example.com Subject: MOON DANCE PETITION LETTER
SECOND/ THIRD / FOURTH YEAR SISTERS
Dear sisters remember that your sacred pipe has a commitment of four years which is important to finish!
But if for any reason that doesn`t allow you to come to our Moon Dance Ceremony we ask you to please write a letter to the moon dance council (firstname.lastname@example.org) explaining the circumstances of your absence. Also it is important for us to know if you keep on praying and carrying your chanupa.
REGISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION FEE
As part of the discipline and awareness, all dancers must confirm their participation in advance and pay their participation fee once they have received the approval of the Council to be part of the Moondance.
Bank details will follow after your registration and having been accepted by the Council.
Important is to pay your participation fee to finance your pipe and be able to receive it. Therefore it is strictly necessary to confirm your participation in advance!
Commitment requires order and discipline and by confirming your presence you facilitate unity at work.
FEES FOR 2022 WILL BE POSTED SOON
In case of cancellation up to15 days before the event the participation fee will be refunded 50%. In case of short term cancellation (less than 14 days before the event or not showing up) there will not be a refund and we will consider the full participation fee as a donation for Moondance Austria.
SISTERS FROM OTHER CIRCLES
For those Sisters that are part of another Moondance: You can dance with the Austrian Moondance Atlachinolli Meztli for one year without committing for four years in Austria. Your committment of for years minimum must stay with your previous mother circle. You will wear the patches for the Austrian Moondance Atlachinolli Meztli which you will receive when you arrive at the land. Your skirt and Poncho also need to have the red and blue ribbon of the Moondance Atlachinolli Meztli. Please bring your Moondance Chanupa that has been given to you at another Moondance Circle! You will not receive a second Chanupa, so please write in the Petition Letter if you have already received a Moondance Chanupa before.
