------ ----- -- - -- ---- Hosted by Ken, Tasara + Tiffany Ann from Turtle Spirit Jam of Littlelight Ceremony---- ---- ----- -

---------  ---------------  ----------  - - ------------- THIS CEREMONY IS A CALL ------- - -- --  --------- ----------- ---- ---------

Not to the clouds, God, or the Universe to make it rain. Let's let mother nature take her course.
The call is to you the Turtle Spirit Community. A call to contemplate its importance. 
It's power, that molds this land, cleans our air, and feeds the green paradise we call home.

Let this ceremony bring mindfulness, not only to the beauty that it brings, but to remind us to make the right decisions in our life to help Mother Earth keep it this way. Decisions that also set examples to others around us when we step back into day to day life. Let this ceremony also serve as a memento for when the rain does get here, and stays, ...and stays, to be thankful. A reminder to love the rain.

We would like you to BRING A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER. It's supposed to rain next weekend. Maybe catch a little to bring with you. 

We will set up a pot to boil it in, symbolizing the rain cycle, and will also SEND OUR LOVE along with the energy of the water, into the atmosphere, BACK TO THE RAIN. Feel free to bring offering of your own for the altar.

BRING your musical tools, and maybe a little extra for those without. We encourage prayers, stories, poems, singing, and dancing. (and a chair for under the bridge)

* Please try to be on time. This is a ceremony with an opening and closing.This will be a spiritual event so please fight the urge to overly perform or compete. Lets combine our energy to fill the container. But don't hesitate to have fun!

You are also welcome to stick around after and enjoy the comradery of our clan. The ceremony is short so we will eat after and discuss how awesome everything is.
