Clan Mothers Circle

Our hearts are filled with gratitude at this time of rebirth, of life beginning anew once again! We welcome Looks Far Women, Clan Mother of the 4th Moon Cycle who teaches us how to See the Truth. What a time to rejoice! To come out of our winter’s cave of snow and ice to now embrace the colour, beauty, and miracles of life all around us every day. This is our opportunity to see our lives with fresh eyes, childlike eyes, inner eyes – so we can truly see who we are and how to co-create our lives.

Dragonfly3The energy of creation and new beginnings is strong now – ride its wave to make the changes you have been yearning for in your life. We can birth our most powerful Selves, our true, authentic Selves, to live from our hearts and inner knowings. When we look with eyes wide open we can see the signs and omens in all of life directing us and helping us to be happy, creative and healthy.  Are you ready to be born anew, blossoming and giving off your sweetest scent along with the flowering tree and plant people?

This is the time to create wholeness within ourselves as Looks Far Woman takes us to the Crack in the Universe to see a complete reflection of who we are.

I look forward to being with you in this time of expansion, growth and enlightenment.

See you in the tipi – please dress appropriately and bring a cushion and blanket for floor sitting and your drums and rattles. This Circle will be held at the Leicester Quaker Meeting House on 9 April, 6:30pm-9pm.

Please also bring your monthly braid of key word, animal totem and sacred path if you have them. If you don’t have a braid already, please drum for or intuit a totem animal or energy to work with for the month or draw cards

This Circle is open to all women over the age of 10.

ETERNITY IS OUR FREQUENCY

We as humankind are at a critical point in our development.  The Creator gave us many gifts and many opportunities for growth, for change, for expansion of consciousness.  Some have listened; some have not.  Our ways of being and living have taken us far away from our Natural Ways (of being), our connection to our Earth Mother and her children.  We have lost touch with our Ancestral Connections and our sense of our place in the grand scheme of things.  Now is the time when we are called to return to what is true and what is real.  We are called to once again stand in that truth.  To once again restate our intention: for our lives, for our mission, for our future, for our Mother Earth and our connection to Universal Truth and all life everywhere.

Day One, Leicester: Preparing For ‘The New Instructions’

Day Two, Wansford: The Next Step

Participants will:

  • Prepare a personal Sacred Hoop of Dreams
  • Awaken the Answers within their Ancestral Lineage that connect them to the unfolding of the Universal Stream
  • Begin to work with the promptings within their Soul to manifest their individual Mission in Life
  • Will be able to honor and restore their connection to the Beings in the Natural World for mutual benefit and protection.

Urban Vision Quest

In these times of great transformation, contemporary living and rising uncertainty, Teresa Raven Moon and Michelle Speaking Hawk would like to offer you an opportunity to take time out, drop down into yourself, connect into your heart and reconnect with those in the seen and unseen worlds who guide, protect and revitalise you. We have planned this in response to so many people in the community wanting a Sacred and protected space in which they can go deeper into themselves, reconnecting with Spirit within and the Spirits without.

We are inviting you to come participate in an Urban Vision Quest. This will be in three parts:

Day 1: Sunday, 15 April 2018, 1:00pm-6:00pm, Tayanita Medicine Lodge

Day 3: Saturday, 13 April 2019*, 11:00am-2:00pm, Tayanita Medicine Lodge

* this date subject to change

Vision Quest is an ancient ceremony to realize our oneness with all things. It is a time to sit outside and revitalise our connection with Spirit. Some pray for a vision of their life’s work or an expansion or clarification, some vision to make a request, some to pray or to give gratitude, and some simply use this time to reconnect to the Earth Mother and the Universe. Limited space of 12 people.

 

Workshop:

Sunday, 15 April 2018: Vision Quest Teachings

Participants can expect to:

  • Set up spiritual boundaries
  • Take a shamanic journey to meet spirit guides and learn how to stay connected

Clan Mothers Circle

Monday, 5 March 2018, 6:30pm-9pm – Quaker Meeting House, Queen’s Road

We are now on that place of the wheel where we ACCEPT THE TRUTH with Weighs the Truth, Clan Mother of the 3rd Moon Cycle. Sometimes we find it difficult to look at ourselves – especially if we let judgment cloud our view. With this Clan Mother’s Totem, Weasel, can learn to use ingenuity, guile, stealth, and observation to see ourselves and our lives from all perspectives. In paying attention and noticing without judgement where our choices and non-choices have led us, we can then transform our lives into a new reality. We are the co-creators of our lives! Now is a good time to dream the big medicine dreams to heal ourselves, our loved ones and our world. With these beautiful and most welcomed spring energies we can launch anew, with sweetness, grace and ease. Weasel 1a

I am looking forward to being in Ceremony with all of you in Circle on Monday 5 March 6.30 – 9.00 in the Library of the Quaker Meeting House on Queens Road. Together, we will feed our spirits to walk the Beauty Path.

Please bring your braid for the month OR draw/intuit/journey for your totem(s)/path for this month. Please also bring your drums and rattles and a cushion to sit on and a blanket or lap cloth so you will be comfortable sitting and lying on the floor- we do have chairs if you prefer.

This Circle is open to all women and girls over the age of 10.

Monday, 5 February 2018, 6:30pm-9pm – Quaker Meeting House, Queen’s Road

Please join us this month as we HONOUR THE TRUTH with Wisdom Keeper, Clan Mother of the 2nd Moon Cycle. Wisdom Keeper teaches us how to honour the Truth in all things by first honouring our own Beauty Path – to let our own Orenda be our guiding light. This Clan Mother and her Totem, Mammoth, teach us to walk this Good Red Road with the Truth of who and what we are in our hearts through the Art of Remembering. We learn to honour our own dreams and visions and in doing so, we learn to honour the Sacred Space and Sacred Point of View of All Our Relations. I ask you to join me this month in Ceremony so that as we develop the Self, we learn to help others do so, too.

Clan Mothers Circle

Monday, 4 December 2017, 6:30pm-9pm – Quaker Meeting House, London Road

Please join us this month to welcome Gives Praise, Clan Mother of the 13th Moon Cycle, into our lives.  She shows us how to transform our lives with gratitude, ceremony, and asking for what we need and want in our lives. Nothing happens in the Universe until a request has been made. Through her Totem, Buffalo, we learn how to pray through gratitude. We learn to be Grateful for the Truth in our lives.Buffalo 1

The vibration and attitude of gratitude is woven into every Ceremony. This Clan Mother shows us how to transform our lives through Ceremony, healing our spirits and opening our hearts and minds to our connection with All our Relations. This connection to our own Orenda, to the Universe, to Mother Earth and All Our Relations is what sustains us, feeds us and helps us blossom into our true, authentic Selves.

I am grateful to be in ceremony with all of you in Circle. Through connection and gratitude, we will feed our spirits and regroup our energy so we can continue clearly on the Beauty Path.

Clan Mothers Circle

Dear Co-Creators,

Please join us Monday, 2 October 2017, 6:30pm-9pm in the tipi as we welcome Weaves the Web, Clan Mother of the Tenth Moon Cycle who teaches us how to Work with the Truth! With every choice we make, we are co-creating our lives. It is up to us to spin crystal clear webs of intention and use conscious choice to manifest our dreams. Her Totem, Starfish, speaks of the energy of creation that is available to all of us when we mix the Clan Chiefs of Air, Earth, Water and Fire with the Creative Force of Great Mystery.

Part of our choice is whether to live a life of grace, love, compassion, joy and reverence. Together we can gently remind each other when we temporarily forget who we really are – powerful beings of light connected each to the other through the language of love. Weaves the Web is love in action – the nobility of choosing our creations every day.

This will be the last event in the tipi before the winter sets in. Please wear appropriately warm clothing. Please bring a blanket or lap cloth and cushion for floor sitting and lying, and your rattles and drums. Also bring your braid for the month if you have one and if not, go inward to seek a Totem or Path for the month or draw a card.

This Circle is open to all women and girls over the age of 10.

Autumn Equinox Fire Ceremony

Wednesday, 20 September 2017, 7pm – Tayanita Medicine Lodge

You are invited to join us for Fire Ceremony to release and transform all that is no longer serving you as we celebrate the Autumn Equinox — when light and dark come into balance. This turn of the Medicine Wheel celebrates the energies of the West Direction – introspection, goals, the Future. The West direction is the place of all tomorrows.fire

​In this beautiful ceremony, you will have the opportunity to work with the Ceremonial Fire to release old beliefs, patterns, relationships, self-concepts or other things that no longer serve us and inhibit our growth. In this way our lives can “grow corn” (Will Rockingbear) and we are free to live our lives true to our authentic Selves.

You may wish to bring a give-away for the Sacred Fire – something you fashioned or have written or in some way represents the energy of what you want to give away (no metal or plastic please). However, there will be time to bundle your give-aways at the ceremony. We will also be celebrating the three-quarter point in our year of Whole-Hearted Kindness with Deer. Feel free to give to the Fire anything that holds you back from Whole-Hearted Kindness!

We will then replace and refill with positive energy, joy and personal power as you dream with the drum.

Please bring a lawn chair or pillow to sit on, appropriate clothing to keep warm, a lap cloth, and drums and/or rattles. You may also want to bring some chocolate or other small snack or refreshment to share around the Fire afterwards!

Please join us for Clan Mothers Circle on:

Monday, 11 September 2017, 6:30pm-9pm – Tayanita Medicine Lodge – the tipi

This month we work with Setting Sun Woman who sits in the West of the Medicine Wheel. We are now being ushered gently into the autumn energies with the earth moving beneath our feet and Frog tenderly helping us to cleanse, refresh and replenish. Frog4Working with the cleansing, gentle energy of Frog, we can clear away the old debris of our lives, making ample space for an expansion of our consciousness where we are ready and able to move forward. Our challenge is to keep our balance amidst the shifts, staying connected to Spirit that we may gracefully rise above fear and paralysis, greeting the future with hope, joy and love in our hearts.

Ceremony helps us to remember and guides us to LIVE THE TRUTH. I’m looking forward to being in Ceremony with you to regroup and cleanse from our previous month and gather the new energy for the upcoming month.

Please remember to bring your Sacred Word, Totem Animal and Path Card for the month of September and a cushion, lap cloth and your drums and rattles!
