-------------------------- -----

As the bear goes into her cave to do her winter dreaming, she dreams the world into being.
She travels through the stars.

When the plants return to the earth as the cold sweeps in, they are bowing. Bowing to the laws of nature, offering themselves to the realm of fertility which is sacred, death.

As we release into the beauty of darkness, the goddess catches us. We rest, we dream, we offer our past year and our trust to the Beauty which accepts all, for all passes into the void to dream, to transform anew, to still until the season turns.

**A side altar will be there for the ancestors. Feel free to bring items for your loved ones who have passed.

-------------------- Normal TSJ Stuff ----------------------------

Turtle Spirit Jam is a community ceremony where we take a deep journey using our drums, voices, other instruments and bodies to explore the Other Worlds for insight and healing, for ourselves, each other and Mother Earth Father Sky. Some participants also come to journey or to meditate.

Turtle Spirit Jam is a place to practice listening to the spirit of the drum and the spirits the drums evoke.

Turtle Spirit Jam is hosted rather than facilitated and drummers at all levels of experience are welcome. You are invited to dance, rattle, drum, hum, drone, chant and/or vocalize your intention and your joy in our safe & open circle.

Drums, didgeridoos, flutes and other instruments are all welcome. If you would like to bring any items to add to the altar cloth including (but limited too) small percussion instruments, extra drums, personal items of significance, etc., it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Please plan to arrive a few minutes early so as to avoid "breaking the mood." as we do start on time. Thank you! If you do arrive late, please be conscious of subtlety when entering the space. Children are welcome!

**People of all religions and spiritual paths are welcome.**
Blessings of Light and Love!

Please do not mix ceremony with altering substances in our space. For more on that, read the Turtle Spirit Jam note page.
