When we consciously align ourselves with the lunar cycle, we actively participate in a powerful metaphor that helps us move into an awareness and appreciation of our interconnectedness with all parts of this amazing universe. This type of thinking is healing thinking, for the day-to-day realities that we create for ourselves depend upon our moment to moment thoughts, dreams and imaginings. When we begin to think in healing ways, our lives begin to heal and become more joyous.
Circlekeepers, A Lunar Cycle Journey, was created to teach the basic symbology of the Medicine Wheel in a focused, directed and experiential way. By setting an intention, creating a sacred space, doing personal daily rituals and meditations, and meeting weekly through one lunar cycle, you will take a guided journey around the wheel, experiencing the attributes of a Cardinal Direction (East, South, West and North) each week. This focused process integrates left and right brain activity and imprints the subconscious with the concepts of initiation, transition, transformation and synthesis as a guide for making positive, life-affirming change.
We will sit circle together for four weekly sessions. A fifth meeting will culminate our work together in a full moon Medicine Wheel ceremony signifying completion of the Lunar Cycle. Your journey to the Four Directions will allow your transition and healing to take place. By "telling your story", participating in "clearing" or letting go of what is no longer useful to you, you arrive at the place to call back that part of you that is your soul essence. This journey is sometimes called "soul searching" or "soul retrieval". Chanting, drumming, shamanic journeying, “Talk Story,” energetic healing and sacred counsel are some of the processes used on this healing journey.
Here are the Tools and Provisions you will need for your journey.
