VISITORS AT THE MOONDANCE
Visitors are warmly welcome to witness the Ceremony on the fourth dance night, the first of August from 8 p.m. onwards .(This is ONLY possible on the fourth night!) You are invited to witness, support, motivate, cheer and dance outside of the ceremony circle and obviously to be touched by this powerful prayer. It is deeply touching for the dancers to be seen and for other to witness their spiritual and devotional work in service to humanity and the planet.
No dogs are allowed at the Moondance! The safety and hygiene of the children who run around the site all day is very important to us! Thank you for your cooperation and your understanding.
