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!

This inner guidance system will naturally guide us to the people, places and teachings that will help us most. Listen to your inner voice to know what requests to make! Don’t wait one minute longer for the healing to begin! When we are congruent with our thoughts, words and actions, balance, well-being and true fulfilment andhappiness are made manifest with grace and ease.  With the healing power of Snake, we can transmute poison, negativity, and limiting ideas while learning the wonders of the life force and its flow in the body.

I look forward to regrouping our energies and being in Sacred Ceremony with you once again.

Clan Mothers Circle

Greetings to the gentle breezes of summer!

Monday, 5 June 2017, 6:30pm-9pm – Tayanita Medicine Lodge in the tipi!

Storyteller, Clan Mother of the 6th Moon Cycle comes into our lives in full force now, teaching us how to Speak the Truth through our words and actions. When we speak the Truth from our hearts we can speak it calmly, clearly and with great compassion aCoyote1nd feeling. With Coyote, we learn to use humour and how to share the Truth by sharing our own personal experiences.

But how we share it makes all the difference. When we hear words spoken with respect, honour and non-judgment, our hearts and minds fly open to receive the sweet nectar of Truth! When hard truths are communicated with humour and lightness, our ability to digest them is strengthened. One of my teachers, Rockingbear, used to talk about the “tone of the soul” – our true essence coming to life through “how” we speak our truths. What vibration carries our words into the world – are they fuelled by inner power and strength and compassion? Or anger and righteousness, self-importance or a sense of entitlement?

What is your story?  Does it feed you? Are they feeding the people and the Planet?

Please bring a cushion and lap cloth for sitting, drums and rattles and your braid for the month.

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