Dances of Universal Peace, Laughter Yoga ,Sacred song circle


  I have been an organic apple grower and gardener for over 40 years.  I started Big B's juices and ran it for 18 years.  I live on Hanson Mesa just a little way from the Tribal Vision Festival land.  I lead Dances of Universal Peace and have been doing that for over 24 years.  I have led dances all over the world.  I help lead many dance retreats every year.  I have recorded 10 CD's of music and 2 DVD's teaching how to lead some of my dances.  Check out my website to hear some of my music.  Click on the Music and DVD link and then on any of the CD's that say listen.  You can also see me leading dances and singing some songs by searching my name on youtube. I feel strongly moved to offer this topeople who working on cultivating their heart.


Laughter Yoga.  About a half hour session
It is known how healing laughter is.  Laughter Yoga was created in India by a doctor who was inspired to bring laughter to more people, more often.  There are no postures but a series of situations/exercises that encourage laughter for no reason. We will play together.
Sacred song circle led by Bernie Heideman and Beth Quist
We will be singing uplifting sacred songs including one that came out of the Standing Rock Gathering. We will include some circle songs from the tradition of Bobby McFerrin.  Beth has performed with Bobby McFerrin. The Bobby McFerrin work is improvised and spontaneous.

Dances of Universal Peace These dances are circle dances with simple folk dance type movements that include a sacred chant from one of the worlds' spiritual traditions.  I play the guitar to accompany the dances and will have a percussionist with me. The combination of singing and moving together allows and encourages the group to be present. I see these dances as a way to multiply our prayers for a better world, for personal growth, for healing, and love.   My focus these days is "entrainment" (moving together) and living from the heart.    In the last few years I have created some new dances that are especially attractive to younger people.  The movements of these new dances have steps that match the rhythm of the chant and are ecstatic. This is a chance to be together in the heart and in presence.

Xerephine is a Quirky, Ethereal Musician hailing from the U.K who has always viewed life through the lense of a Faerytale. Inspired by fantasy, myth, folklore and real life she has developed this workshop to explore how we knowingly or unknowingly embody Archetypes in helpful or hindering ways and how we can best write our own Faerytale ending!  

The Journey of our Inner Archetypes Revealed; Writing our own Faerytales

Does your Inner Child sabotage your High King? Is there an Evil Queen desperate to be heard yet stifled by the sing song of your Virtuous Princess?  Your Government may be ruled by an Evil King or Queen in a towering Castle and you may have undertaken a hero's journey through the dark forest to come out the other side embodying your Valiant Knight or Wise Witch. Where does your tale go from here?  This is a playful yet insightful journey exploring all of the characters we embody at different times and how they can best support our journey through life. During this time we get to explore the classic archetypes that have been fed to us through Faerytale books and films as well as the personas within us that get less airplay. By the end of the session we will each walk away with our own "Faerytale Timeline" in which we imagine and depict all of our inner archetypes and write our own unique happy endings!

tribal economy: moving away from corporate capitalism

it is no secret that communities in the u.s. and throughout the world are facing problems that are fueled by corporate capitalism and its profit-driven enterprise. these problems include the ignoring of negative externalities such as pollution and depletion of public and renewable resources and encourage the under-providing of products, goods, services, and resources with positive externalities, such as health, public transport and education. consequently, a conscious evolution is emerging that promotes the ideology of the "the tribe" or a community focus, the same as the indigenous people have been fostering for centuries. it is the ideology of “we” rather than the corporate-focused “i.” community-focused models that encourage cooperation and collaboration within particular enterprises needed to sustain them are once again popping up everywhere helping to produce meaningful socioeconomic change that thwarts rather than breeds dependency associated with the corporate-focused model. this lesson discusses the community-focused model and particular examples of enterprises using it that have developed in different parts of the world that are now community self-directed and empowering those involved to take control of the industries they need to survive and transition to a cooperative production and distribution system for the industry production they control. this lesson broaches subtopics that include varieties of existing cooperative economic models, cooperative power blocks, the development of sustainable consciousness, and the fostering of greater empathic egalitarian community relations. this workshop may be of special interest to business leaders, community organizers and grass roots activists.


harnessing the quantum-ness of consciousness

using the principles of qualitative field perception theory or qfpt, this lesson introduces participants to the quantum nature of the default process of human consciousness by taking participants on a journey through their own mind as the “observer” and facilitator using algorithms based on the golden mean and other equations to illustrate how humans influence, if not create, moment by moment experiences of their perception. this lesson offers the fundamental knowledge needed to potentially self-direct one’s consciousness and may be of particular interest to sacred geometry fans, meditators, yoga practitioners, quantum physics buffs, and psychonauts.

~ Indigenous phenology ~

An exploration of shifting patterns and adaptation to climate change from an indigenous Permaculturalist perspective.

 Indigenous people have an intimate knowledge of many aspects of their surroundings and their daily lives. Over Millennia, people have learned how to grow food and to survive in a sometimes difficult environment. They know what varieties of plant to propagate. when to sow and weed, which plants are poisonous and which can be used for medicine, how to cure diseases and how to maintain their environment in a state of equilibrium. Lots of factors have disrupted this relationship in recent centuries I this workshop we will explore lessons learned and adaptations to our uncertain future.


Ecosocial design from the micro to the macro:  creating a perennial economy

In this session, we will apply the patterns of nature to improving our health, strengthening social dynamics, and creating a regenerative system grounded in the ethos of financial permaculture: people, planet and profit. We will explore the intersectionality of how different scales of human society, from the individual to the economy, can be structured with inspiration from the harmonics of ecosystems and organisms. We will connect to mycorrhizae, nature's champion subterranean collaborators, and envision ourselves as members of a dynamic and diverse culture of creativity.
