…long ago, when the people were given these ceremonies, the changing began, if only in the aging of the yellow gourd rattle or the shrinking of the skin around the eagle’s claw, if only in the different voices from generation to generation singing the chants… Ceremony — Leslie Marmon Silko
Returning to the Sacred
Prophesies of many cultures have foretold
of a time when the people of the earth would
heal their differences. To do this, we must build
bridges so that we can come to understand our
brothers and our sisters who share this earthwalk
with us during this critical time.
Circlekeepers are gathering from all tribes,
building bridges with each other and from the past to
the future and to a new kind of world.
Our decisions are critical ones. Do we build walls,
or do we build bridges? Do we remain in
isolation, or do we heal and build community?
Much has been given to us and
there is much to be done.
Together we can build a new kind of Bridge
and return to the sacred, once again.
Circlekeepers was created to help you deepen your relationship with nature and assist you in remembering an ancient way of thinking. This provides a pathway, or bridge, that connects us with the sacred in our everyday lives. It is suitable for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds and can be used:
• As a personal transformative process.
• As a sacred focus with a partner.
• As a family healing ritual.
• As a sacred focus for larger groups.
• By four participants – one representing each direction.
By setting an intention, creating a sacred space and participating in daily rituals, weekly meditations and activities throughout one lunar cycle, you are guided around the wheel, learning the attributes of one of the cardinal directions each week in an experiential way. The process integrates left and right brain activity and imprints the subconscious with the concepts of awareness, initiation, reflection, synthesis and integration.
