As I mentioned in my emails, I would love to meet with people in the group, have everyone introduce themselves, tell what their interests are, and what they would like to see happen in this circle of folks we have collected here! From what I have read so far from people who have written to me, we are a very diverse bunch, with some amazing interests and talents! I look forward to getting to know everyone, and having some truly transcendental experiences! I would also like you to meet my good friend, Nancy, who will be co-organizing with me.
For this initial gathering, I thought we could meet right across from the Japanese House/Garden in Fairmount Park. It is very easy to get to, 5 minutes from the Montgomery Ave exit on 76. In the case of rain, I know a chant we can do to ward off inclement weather...and if that fails, there is a covered gazebo nearby that we can be under.
I would like to start the meeting off with everyone being smudged with sage, if anyone wants to volunteer to do that, please let me know. Then, after the meeting is done, perhaps we could do a little drumming, and send our intentions for the group off into the spirit realms, so please feel free to bring a drum or a rattle.
During the meeting, I would love for us to schedule an event for the Summer Solstice, on June 21st...so please think of something we could do that day to celebrate the sun!
Please feel free to send questions/comments......and I look forward to seeing you soon!
