Zoom Circle

As keepers of the ancient tradition of gathering on full moon to honor the divine feminine, we carried on in a fashion that would have amazed our ancestral grandmothers.

We good world citizens, separately gathered together via Zoom (video conferencing).

This was our first ever remote gathering.  We dedicated our ceremony to Maat; Egyptian Goddess of balance and justice.

The fear, sadness, and anxiety from the pandemic is permeating humanity and weighing like boulders on our hearts. To walk through this world with a heavy heart is an injustice, but so is this virus.

Last night we engaged in modern ritual to lighten our hearts and bring balance to our lives, even if it was just for a while.

Before our Zoom gathering, each woman created a personal altar dedicated to healing the world.

Then we wrote about all the heaviness in her heart.  Symbolic of letting go, the pages of sorrow were burned.  Then; time to tune into the Zoom meeting.

I wasn’t sure if we should jump right into circle speak or keep with the tradition of opening ceremony.  The wise Moon Mothers chose to begin with a modified opening  ritual.  The familiar words helped me settle in this foreign way of holding circle.  We were miles apart from each other, but I could feel them settle too.

One of the best ways to balance a heavy heart is through laughter.  This always worked well in past circles, when we dedicated our ceremony to Maat.  I was ready for some giggles. When we got to circle speak (joke time) it wasn’t easy to laugh.  A few chuckles but no deep belly laughs.  Shannan stepped up and led a yoga laughing practice.  That did prime the pump to start the laughing flow. Positive stories of planet healing were told and it brought peace and hope to our circle. In closing, Danielle led us in our traditional closing song.

I look forward to easy belly laughs without the aid of wine, although it is 4 20 all month.

Be well.
