CHEROKEE SUNDANCE

[Start with left leg bent and leaning, while you face EAST, the rising sun.]

I fly like an eagle     [Raising arms above your head]

Circle the world with my love  [Coming down circling]

I give love to the Earth   [Reaching to the ground in front of you]

I receive love from the Earth.  [Bringing the energy back to your heart]

I give love to Great Spirit   [Hands above you reaching to the sky]

I receive love from Great Spirit.  [Reaching back to your heart]

[Lean right this time bending right knee, left leg extended straight.]

I fly like an eagle

Circle the world with my love

I give love to the Earth

I receive love from the Earth.

I give love to Great Spirit

I receive love from Great Spirit.

[Start left leg lunged forward, hands forward.]

I give to my brothers and sisters,

[Bring hands back towards heart.]

I receive from my brothers and sisters.

[Turn to right side with arms. You are now facing SOUTH. ]

I give to my brothers and sisters,

[Back to your heart]

I receive from my brothers and sisters.

[You are now ready to begin the sequence again facing this next direction. Repeat the above 3 more times, changing direction until you end up in your starting position.  This is one round of the 4 directions.  Do 4 rounds, one round of 4 for each direction.  You will have repeated the above 16 times. Enjoy!]
