I would like to share the shamanic practices I have learned from my teachers. When participating in ritual and ceremony we offer up acts of ayni, or sacred reciprocity to the natural world. By doing this we are saying thank you for all we have been given by this beautiful planet. Teaching folks how to say thank you in this way is very heart warming to me.
I am inspired to meet more folks who are seekers such as myself. I had heard of Meetup from a friend who has been involved in Meetups in SF. He is always touched by the wonderful people that find their way to his gatherings. Following his lead, I decided to give Meetup a try.
Each day I feel there is an opportuintiy to connect more deeply to the natural world - it is like studying human anatomy or space...so vast with so much possibility to learn if we just take the time to soak in it. The more I feel connected to the natural world, the more I want to immerse myself in her beauty.
Jnana Gowan, yoga teacher & urban ceremonialist is the director of Powerhouse Education a company dedicated to creativity, vitality & connectivity. She integrates ceremony & ritual from the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition into her life as much as possible.
I lead the ceremony - but everyone participated. I felt it was a gorgeous setting with kindred souls. I look forward to bringing these groups together to share our love of The Mother and our Star Relations.
