We have had several interested parties contact us about the Dreaming and Visioning Ceremony scheduled for June 20-21. We are certainly thrilled about the interest in this beautiful opportunity to deepen into a more intimate relationship with your heart and soul.
There are two aspects of this ceremony. One is for those who are interested in learning what we do in this community and the teachings offered by those that gather. Through story telling, teachings from and around the fire, drumming, dancing, and perhaps the Pipe, it will be a heart felt opportunity to share with other like minded people. The critters, winged ones and spirit of that land that hold this place with reverence, respect and honor, will also offer teachings to those willing to pay attention. Oh and yes, there will be ample food available that will be shared as we move through the night. Those who choose to stay up all night will witness the magic that will be present.
The second piece is for those who have the desire to spend 24 hours alone, away from others, in order to really hear what nature has to offer their heart. For those interested in being off by themselves, they need to contact Vicky by March 15. This is in order to begin the process of truly turning on your "heart's" ears to listen. We hear a lot of chatter from our minds, and often from others, who are more than willing to give us guidance. And, while this is a lovely gift, until we really let to know the voice of our heart, the often good words from others only adds more clutter to our already chattering, busy mind!
Therefore, this ceremony offers the stillness of being on the land with only your heart (Spirit) to begin or deepen our relationship to all that is divine. With that said, there is preparation work before stepping into the silence. If you have been doing some inner work, in particular with a teacher, this may be the next step for you. If your heart calls to set in the silence, please call and we will discuss some things that are important to "sit with" in order to clearly know if your heart is making this request. There are also traditions needed to honor this ceremony in the old ways and to make the journey truly a divinely inspired experience.
Both aspects will offer participants an opportunity to deepen his/hers relationship with their sacred selves. One is not more "important" than the other! It is all a matter of listening to our hearts and honoring its request.
