Domestication and the Dream of the Planet

This is part of a new series of circles based on The Four Agreements, by don Miguel Ruiz, a deceptively simple but powerfully life-changing book.  The series will continue for several months, but please feel free to attend even if you missed one of the earlier classes.

"Humans are dreaming all the time. Before we were born the humans before us created a big outside dream that we will call society's dream or the dream of the planet. The dream of the planet is the collective dream of billions of smaller, personal dreams, which together create a dream of a family, a dream of a community, a dream of a city, a dream of a country, and finally a dream of the whole humanity. The dream of the planet includes all of society's rules, its beliefs, its laws, its religions, its different cultures and ways to be, its governments, schools, social events, and holidays. We are born with the capacity to learn how to dream, and the humans who live before us teach us how to dream the way society dreams. The outside dream has so many rules that when a new human is born, we hook the child's attention and introduce these rules into his or her mind. The outside dream uses Mom and Dad, the schools, and religion to teach us how to dream." ~ don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

With these words, don Miguel Ruiz leads us into a powerful examination - and transformation - of our core beliefs, including those deep wounds that hold us back from finding our freedom and power in this life.  Come join us for an exploration of the ancient Toltec wisdom in this first of a series based on The Four Agreements.  A shamanic drum journey will follow the discussion to allow each woman to work on her own issues with her Spirit guides.

Please dress comfortably, and feel free to bring drums, rattles or other instruments, along with a journal for recording any insights received on your journey.  Also feel free to bring an item to put on the altar during our circle.

Doors open at 7:00 pm and close at 7:30 pm, and ends at 10:00 pm. Please RSVP to ensure your space. Suggested donation of $10.00 per person to cover the space rental. Come join us for this powerful exploration!

We will be meeting in the Serena Room at Casa de Luz. Some backjacks, folding chairs, pillows and yoga blankets will be available. If possible, you might want to bring your own pillow or blanket to help make sure that you're comfy during the circle, especially if you plan to journey lying down on the floor. You might also want to bring a light wrap or sweater in case the AC is acting up! :) Several of us will be having dinner at 6 PM in Casa's restaurant, so feel free to join us for dinner before the circle!  (Reminder:  It is OK to park in the City lots across the street in spite of the "no parking" signs posted there.  The City has an agreement with Casa, at least for now.)

      Yes, thank you. I had never really connected with The Four Agreements, but I love the way you presented it. Made much more sense this time around then when I read the book during the "Oprah hype" days. :)
