Springtime in Texas: Dancing our Prayers
April 11-14 (Thurs-Sun) 2019
Earthsprings Retreat Center,
Crockett TX

Join Sky Safir Roshay, Douglas Stevenson, Bernie Skydrummer and other leaders and musicians for a weekend of Dances of Universal Peace, poetry, potlucks, music and community!

Earthsprings Retreat Center is on 70 acres of wooded land in the edge of Davy Crockett National Forest, about half way between Houston and Dallas, Shreveport and Austin. The nearest airports are either DFW or Houston, both about two to two and a half hours away.

Dancing will be in the Tent we use for our 4 Corners area retreats. Dorm style bed space at the retreat center is available for about 25 people, first come first served, in the bunkhouse and main house.  Unlimited camping space is available, with bathroom/shower access. (See details.)  The Medicine Lodge will be available for meditation, jam sessions, and other activities; and hiking, canoeing, and other outdoor activities are possible. There is an outdoor kitchen with picnic tables. Dinners are potlucks, other meals are on your own.

Retreat cost:  $75-110, early bird discount until March 15th; $90-110 afterward.  Lodging charges: $10/night/person camping; to reserve rooms and that cost contact Glenda, 936-687-2246 or

Glenda Taylor is the owner of Earthsprings Retreat Center, and the director of the Fellowship of Comparative Religion.  See her expansive websites at and  She has attended several Dances of Universal Peace Camps with Sky Safir and Bernie Heideman.

Directions: GPS will get you to Crockett, but don’t follow it the rest of the way, as it can get befuddled as it gets deep into the forest. Glenda will provide exact directions as we get closer to the date.
