We will walk for those in need rain or shine. If it is pouring rain, we will gather at the Arboretum Visitor Center.
Please join us for our quarterly healing ritual to be held in the Washington Arboretum. Here, under the sacred oaks, we will gather to acknowledge and raise energy for those individuals and communities who are in need of regeneration.
This quarter we will also be remembering those who have needed physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing in the past year. Those who have lost loved ones, those who have passed on and who may be lost, those who have suffered the catastrophes of the past several months, those who are in need of the basic necessities of living.
In this ceremony, we will walk in silence through the Arboretum, and ask the for the healing powers of the trees and of the sacred pools.
Please attend prepared to participate fully in this powerful ceremony, whether you are in need of attention yourself or you are representing another who has given permission and is willing to receive healing. We will also be sending restorative vibrations to communities and other collectives in need as well.
Also, please wear sturdy shoes, dress for Seattle spring weather, and bring a light snack to share so that we will be able ground ourselves with food following the rite. This rite will happen rain or shine.
Directions to the Oak Grove in the Arboretum are below.
Directions to the Oak Grove at the Arboretum: The Oak grove in the Arboretum is very easy to get to and is very accessible by bus. There is even easy parking! Here is how to get there:
By bus: Take the 43 or the 48 to the Montlake area. Get off on 24th at Lynn St. (The Montlake Bicycle Shop is on the corner of Lynn and 24th.) Walk east 3 blocks on Lynn St. to the Arboretum. You will see a foot bridge in to the Arboretum. As soon as you cross the foot bridge, turn left--you are in the Oak grove.
By car: Lake Washington Boulevard is the road that goes through the Arboretum. Drive into the Arboretum from the north end. You will soon see an overpass directly ahead of you (the footbridge mentioned above). Don't go under the overpass, but instead park in the parking lot on the right. Once you have parked, walk across Lake Washington Blvd and up the bank on the path directly across from the parking lot. Turn left at the footbridge and left again to see where we will be. Other ways to find us: Azalea Way is the main path through the Arboretum. The Oak grove is one of the first groves at the north end of Azalea Way. The grove is also just behind (west) of the Visitor Center.
Here is a map of the Arboretum (The Oak grove is the section labled "Oak Family"). http://depts.washington.edu/uwbg/docs/ArboretumMap.jpg We hope to see you there!
