WHAT IS SACRED ACTIVISM?
We live in a time where our world on one level is a place with many injustices and conflicts causing so much suffering and destruction. The way we are treating each other and the natural world both individually and as a society cannot be sustainable.
In direct response to this are calls for a non-violent and compassionate action led by a deeper wisdom as to how we act and live out our lives. Many amazing and creative projects are happening across the world so what can we on a spiritual path do to be a part of this?
This work of “sacred activism”, has grown out of partnership with the land, spirit and a desire to offer a response to the harm being caused. We use ceremony and spiritual practice that helps us into a earth-centered way of looking at issues that we are personally and collectively facing to find solutions from a spiritual perspective. This brings another branch to other forms of social activism that are present in our society.
We do this in a considered and ethical way so that we are clear our actions support all life. I see shamanism offering new hope and vision for individuals as well as our society as a whole for as we individually change everything around us changes as well thus seemingly small actions have a impact on the collective.
It is a big task of our time but one we all can play a part in. The purpose of these events is to find inspiration for us to act in a new way of purpose and understanding, a way that sustains life. We bring healing and transformation on a personal level and open to this globally re-weaving the web of life while creating a community that supports us in our quest.
Each of the events below brings an opportunity of deeper connection and relationship with ourselves as an expression of nature and all life. From this place of personal insight, we hold a vision for what can be and offer this out to manifest.
No experience is needed, your open heart and mind with a willingness are all you are asked to bring. All events can be attended in person or participated at a distance and all events are free to attend;
please contact me for further information.
Upcoming dates Friday 10th January 2020 at 7pm- In this event we will be offering ceremony and prayer for those affected by the fires in Australia.
“There is no better “manager” of nature than nature itself”
In “Natures Sovereignty” we drop into a deeper level of connection with ourselves as part of the natural world. If we can gain experience of ourselves as nature that we are off the earth itself, related and connected with all life, what kind of world would that be?
This has been a lived experience for humans many eons ago, however, if our kind has lived this in the past then this wisdom exists within us today, and may well be the power that is leading many at this time and in so many ways to seek and live this again.
This event is an opening to experience this homecoming though not as it was for our ancient ancestors but drawing on the power of their inherent wisdom we use this to guide us to our own connection effective for now and our modern world within the sanctuary of our wild and free nature.
If we can be in connection with the earth and see what we do to it we do to ourselves to act in service of the earth follows in a more natural and empowered way. Natures Sovereignty creates a space where we connect with and can see and feel ourselves as part of nature and then serve the earth from that place.
VIGILS OF THE EARTH
Spring Equinox Friday 20th March 2020 7pm-10pm
These ceremonies where we work with the energy of the time of year and traditional ways for this time as we step deeper into becoming nature. Following our Celtic ancestors, we work with the Autumn Equinox, where we honor and work with the element of Water, Winter Solstice with Earth, the Spring Equinox with Air and Summer Solstice with Fire completing the circle of the year.
We spend our time in ceremony and practice, with the drum song and with movement, as well as time out on the land, as we follow the flow of the ceremony as it leads us into a traditional and natural way and time of the year in nature’s world.
Dates are generally around the solstice and equinox time please contact for details and practicalities.
Upcoming dates Sunday 19th January 2020 at 7pm
The world of the beehive is described as a “superorganism” where each individual bee works for the collective group of bees. This is a great metaphor for how we can live out our own lives. Shamanic cultures understood this wisdom for humans and we have much to learn from the bees as a result.
This ceremony both honors the Bee and how they shape our world as well as opening us to seek learning from the Bees. We use shamanic methods to develop a partnership with the spirit of the Bees where their wisdom is gifted in how we can develop our own mind of the hive moving into a more connected and a relationship of integrity with all life.
PRAYER AND VISIONING CIRCLES
Upcoming Dates Monday 27th January 2020 at 7pm
“Once something is held in our thoughts and then spoken it exists”
We can so often be fed in our everyday negative and violent images and words that it has almost become normal. This work within this dedicated circle brings a balance and challenge to this hypnosis.
The action of prayer opens the way for new possibilities, a place we can express gratitude and find hope for a way of life that is in harmony and with power. Holding a vision for a world that upholds peace, respect and compassion for all life is a important practice for the times we live in.
Working in an intentional and sacred circle with the support of spirit and our companions brings power to our prayers and vision for our world. Holding a deep silence with this focus we bring through our desires and hopes for this way and give a voice for the world we wish to live in both for ourselves our families, communities and the generations yet to come.
This simple practice brings a new hope into the world and supports us so we have the courage to live this in our own lives and be the very change we wish for in the world.
