Yesterday's Gathering (Oct. 4, 2009)

Although we had a smaller than ususal group yesterday (several people out of town), the sharing was as powerful as ever. Thanks to everyone who attended. I appreciate all of you.
Here is my explanation of ceremony for those who could not attend:
"Ceremony, which in American Indian perspective is a necessary act to obtain or regain balance with the earth, is the highest form of giving back to the earth so that she can replenish her supply for humankind. The purpose of ceremony is to integrate: to unite one with all of humankind as well as the realm of the ancestors, to blend one with all of creation. This allows one to raise consciousness and shed the idea of individuality, of separation. Ceremony brings one into balance with all there is. Each ceremony has its own special purpose. Of course, the purposes vary from group to group, from nation to nation. Nevertheless, all ceremony brings one to the realization there is no separation from anything or any one, provides great illumination, and gives one perception of a cosmic relationship.

  1. That's a profound statement, I'm realizing more and more that each tradition, from Tibet to Arizona, is talking about the same concept... that we are ALL ONE. I'm sorry that I missed the gathering but I will be having many ceremonies soon and keeping the connection to us all. Much love...
