This is a wonderful form of community, healing, serving the earth and blessing the self.
4 times a year I offer this beautiful "Earth Church" Ceremony, one for each season.
These ceremonies serve to help us follow the natural flow of the season's of the year and of our lives.
They help us connect to this moment, to embrace change, to release the past, and move forward into the next season of the year. They also support our bodies in making the seasonal adjustments.
The Ceremony itself is a natural alchemy of the elements earth, air, fire and water.
Stones are heated in a bonfire and carried into a dome shaped structure where participants sit on the earth around a center hole where the heated stones are placed. 4 times during the ceremony representing each of the 4 directions, the door is closed and participants sit or lie on the earth in the darkness. Blessed water is poured on the heated stones making steam. We sing and pray with and for all our relations, all of creation, and creation prays with and for us, within this beautiful alchemy of elements. We go in service to the whole, to heal our separated states of consciousness and suffering. We serve the whole by asking for the healing powers of the universe to help us become and flower into our highest expression in life.
This is an all day ceremony with a pot luck dinner after wards. We will be out of the lodge around 6 pm with pot luck after. I suggest you don't make evening plans, as the lodge is a very full day. Once you rsvp I can contact you with more details or call me if you want more information.
I offer all my programs for dana or donation. I also accept exchanges. Recommended donation is $50, but all offerings are deeply appreciated.
Hope to see you soon, here at the Earthwalk Retreat. Blessings Darlene
