Connected Soul

Yoga retreat with Jessica Archer Nuzzo
Saturday October 27th 4~ 6:30pm  $40
Emerging Space Greenhouse

This potent time of year is one of transition, moving towards darkness and what is known as the dream time.  Nature invites us to go inward and listen, so that we can become more receptive and open to the energies all around us.


All Souls Day, Halloween & Dia de los Muertos all honor the dead, reminding us that the veil between the worlds is thin in these moments. If we pause and feel, we can find connection with those who are no longer embodied in this world; we can be connected to all souls in all realms. Our afternoon of  gentle yoga will include movement, breath, labyrinth walk, reflective writing, deep rest and sacred connection.

Please bring Yoga Mat, blanket and Journal.
Space is limited Please Register Here

Looking forward to sharing sacred moments with you all, in the
Emerging Space Greenhouse (New home of the Moon Mothers)

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.

Sincerely,  Tamara Trejo

Super Moon in the Redwoods

Full Moon Ceremony Dedicated to the Goddess Ixchel

Ixchel came into consciousness through the ancient Mayan people.  The Mayan’s were mighty warriors and amazingly advanced astronomers. They had many Gods for different aspects of life, but only one Goddess, Ixchel.  She presided over healing and midwifery. In ancient depictions she is portrayed as a crone wearing a serpent crown on her head, with a walking stick in one hand and a basket in the other.  She is portrayed as a crone to show her wisdom, the serpent crown symbolizes her kundalini serpent, powerful and awake, the basket because she is a great weaver and the walking stick a wand.

On this most auspicious night, Super Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, we cast our circle outside the home of Jennifer Gray in a magical meadow among the giant Redwoods.  At twilight, when the veil is thin between the worlds, we wrote powerful healing words on green fabric hearts. We then braided them into one long string to weave together a super charged prayer flag in honor of Ixchel, the Mayan healing moon Goddess.

To strengthen our connection to Ixchel, wise Dragon Crone (Amy Sullivan) lead us in a kundalini activation movement. This awakened the sleeping serpent coiled at the base of our spine. Time to clear our chakras through meditation.  We spread our blankets and laid down on our backs.  To the beat of her Shaman drum, Amy lead us deep into our bodies, focusing on each chakra, one by one, opening and clearing.  Feeling our kundalini power rise upwards while we were connected deeply to Mother Earth brought us to a state of nirvana. Upon returning from that mystical journey, I opened my eyes and saw the first star of the night in an indigo sky surround by the silhouette of Giant Redwoods. Of course I made a wish.

Fully present on every level, each women spoke of her healing actions in this world.

The Dalai Lama said

“The world will be saved by the Western woman.”

As I listened to the ladies in this circle speak of how they heal and who they mid-wife, I had a deep feeling that it is true – the Western woman will save the world.
