This will be a gathering of repair and restoration,
of personal healing, and community transformation.
We will gather to witness, sense and cultivate among-ness.
We honor our regular selves as we also
initiate, activate and inspire each other.
We do this through many small things,
eating together, sitting knee to knee,
and repairing the ruptures that
keep us entangled and un-free.
This is not just a gathering to share medicine and/or skills,
though this will be an element of our time together.
This will be a time for each one of us to stand in the center
and ceremonially, with utmost care,
investigate and unearth what holds us back from our obligations.
We will slowly and with presence,
be witnessed as we unfold within the
to heal and transform.
We will take turns.
We will carry each other.
We will invite sacred world
and our most regular, vulnerable, selves
to visit, explore and mend . . .
I stand for re-membering.
Your ancestors will be honored.
Your longing will be invited.
Your soul will be held with care.
Your dignity is calling . . .
There is a necessary order across generations that allows love to flow
between individuals in families and friendships, between nations/cultures,
and between generations.
And when it doesn’t flow, our energy gets bound up
in intergenerational ruptures and entanglements,
so that we cannot be free.
We forget who we really are.
We begin to identify with patterns of behavior
and coping strategies that… work.
But also that bind us.
It is possible to repair these ruptures.
It is possible to unravel our entanglements
so that the stories of our lives can unfold
in a way that feels congruent with our deepest calling,
our passions and our dreams –
as communities in relation.
This is the break-even cost and you are welcome to offer more than this. If you cannot safely and with integrity offer this much please contact me for a work-trade or scholarship.
Snacks will be provided as well as a nourishing omnivorous big meal on Saturday and Sunday.
