Sacred Space

For the last seven years, we Moon Mothers have gathered for our August full moon ceremony at the Maverick’s Beach labyrinth. Mawu CroppedLast year it was destroyed, all symmetrically placed rocks had been removed.  When I saw the devastation I was appalled and vowed to rebuild it.  With fire energy, I called upon the Moon Mothers for a labyrinth rebuilding work day.  They showed up in force and we rebuilt the sacred labyrinth on the Maverick’s Beach peninsula. 13934708_10153809589073225_7587178658680387372_nThis year it was destroyed again! What? Who? Why would anyone destroy a symmetrically beautiful, meditation labyrinth? How could anyone not see the sacredness of this labyrinth?  When I saw the destruction, I paused and remembered the words of my teacher, Amy Sullivan, “Why do you choose to swim up Stream?”  This time I was not compelled to rebuild. Perhaps the universe was telling me it’s time for a change of venue.  This year we gathered at a sacred hidden labyrinth created by Lars Howlett.

In keeping with Moon Mothers tradition, we began by calling in the energy of the seven direction with the sound of the conch.  Mother Earth01croppedThe gifts from our summer babies set the tone of calmness.

 

Deliberately we walked the sacred labyrinth. Keeping rhythm with our drums, we tapped into Earth’s wisdom. It was as if the labyrinth had become the universal mind, placed upon Mother Earth. As we walked, she silently informed, soothed, and satiated our souls.

Ceremony is a practice inasmuch as medicine is a practice, both are healing.  One of the most powerful effects of full moon ceremony is the self discovery, not found in an ordinary scheduled day.  The ability to be the speaker and the witness at the same time is a common occurrence during circle speak.

Mother Earth

To be truly heard by compassionate woman in a sacred space, ushers in a stong connection, both individually and collectively, to the divine feminine.

Until we meet again, walk bare foot, witness the sunrise, and smell the richness of soil.

Artemis

Conceived through ancient Goddess mythology, we gave birth to modern rituals.  The unstoppable spirit of the Divine Feminine brings magical energy and wisdom to our Goddess circle.  We are the true legacy of our ancestral Grandmothers, who fearlessly engaged in full moon ritual.

On this first full moon of summer we gathered in the Enchanted Forest, in celebration and ceremony. Within minutes we created a soft sensual palace near the cathedral of trees.

The powerful story of Artemis and her mythological tribe inspired our tribe of enlightened women to engage in rhythmic ritual.  The beats of our drums, tambourines and shakers, sent out primal human vibrations to all the trees in the forest.  In return they released subtle wisdom energy absorbed by the sensitive Moon Mothers. The silent whispers of our ancestral Mothers was clearly heard, as our dance parade galvanized into a waking dream of beauty.

From a magnificent vantage point seen by few, we opened to the feminine energy of the full moon’s light casting through the trees. Deeply connected to Mother Earth, each woman became a clear channel of universal wisdom.  Linking together we transformed into a vessel of wisdom and fluidly moved into the unknown, to celebrate the mysteries of the universe.

Summer Solstice Retreat Celebration

On this last day of the long summer solstice pause, we gathered in circle to celebrate the natural holiday.  We gathered to celebrate the pinnacle of light energy.

As Circle Leader and Time Keeper I put care and craft into choreographing our time together.  I witnessed an ardent soul resurgence in the women of our circle.  The impulsive artist, soulful writer, playful inner child, knowing wise woman, rhymic drummer and harmonizing singer were enlivened and activated in each woman.  It was a profound experience.

Below is a side-show to give you a glimpse into our day.
