Global Synchronized Prayer & Drum Circle
Hosted by Red Lightning
THE POWER OF PRAYER creates a sacred space for the Standing Rock spirit to be present at Burning Man. We are inviting the global movement to the temporary metropolis of Black Rock City, created by more than 70,000 people who come together to reach a peak human experience. The intention of the project is to amplify the voices and messages of wisdom keepers and tribal members from across Turtle Island. Our intention is to listen to their teachings and stories, to connect with each other through song and the beat of the drum, dance and celebrate what brings us together as human beings.
At the heart of the vision is our commitment to support cultural
restoration and the provision of grants to create cultural artifacts, including teepees, traditional seating and drums. We wish to encourage creative tribal participation on many levels, and facilitate a space for First Nations representatives. THE POWER OF PRAYER shares tribal wisdom not just in the Burning Man community, but in all of participating society, and the world at large.
On Tuesday, August 29th at 6:30 PM at 8:15 and Esplanade, we will gather in a drum circle around sacred fire, where tribal beats will amplify across Burning Man’s best sound-system through the well-known art car Mayan Warrior, joining us all the way from Mexico City. The drumming prayer circle will be streamed out over synchronized prayer platform Unify, who has a reach of over 1.6 million people. At 7:00 PM, we will come into prayer led by wisdom keepers.
￼We invite the world to join us in person at Burning Man, or to create and participate in a local prayer drum circle, where we share a single moment of focused intention. Together, we pray for good health and better understanding. We pray for deep listening. We pray for unity, peace, and
￼love. We pray for Mother Earth.
