Offerings for May 2022:

Clan Mothers Circle

Monday, 9 May 2022, 6:30pm-9:00pm – Tayanita Medicine Lodge and on-line

This month we work with Listening Woman, Clan Mother of the 5th Moon Cycle, who teaches how to HEAR THE TRUTH. This Clan Mother sends messengers to us from our Allies in Nature, our Ancestors, our Totems and the voice of our Orenda. All of the Spirit World is trying to send us messages, trying to get our attention.

This Clan Mother and her Totem, Ant, teach the patience required to hone our listening skills. They Ant 1teach us how to Hear the Truth by listening with both ears, respect and an open heart with no preconceptions, observing and listening to every nuance so that we can hear the voices of All Our Relations, of Mother Earth, of the Sun beyond the Sun at the center of the Universe. This is the time to Listen Big!

Then this Clan Mother’s other Totems, Seal and Sea Lions, help us to ride the wave of our emotions and feelings, trusting the messages that we may become one with the flow of life.Seal

Please bring a stone person that can easily fit into the palm of your hand from your own land. As you seek this stone person, remember to ask it first if it is willing to work with you and if it is ok to take it with you. As always, we never take anything from the Earth Mother without exchange – a pinch of tobacco is customary in this tradition, or a hair plucked from your head if you have no tobacco. Afterwards, remember to ask if it would like to stay with you on your alter to continue working with you or if it would like to be put back where you found it. And as always, give it much gratitude!

Please do bring along your Sacred Braid for this month – your word, Animal Totem and Sacred Path card. If you weren’t with us at the Setting Our Energies Ceremony, please pull a card or drum/rattle to discern your energy for the month. Please also bring rattles and drums, a lap cloth and cushion for floor sitting. You may wish to bring a stone person – one that you are working with for this month – for the alter.

I look forward to being with you in Sacred Ceremony. Suggested £10 exchange.

This circle is open to women over the age of 12.

This will be followed by teachings/questions/dreaming/going deeper into what your Spirit name means for you and the Medicine you carry. For both children and adults. Please note, we will only do this ceremony if there is enough interest so please let me know if you are interested. For those who already have a Spirit Name, we could also do a circle in order to connect more fully and explore our names and how these reflect our higher soul purpose.

This circle will include teachings about Vision Quest, how to open to a vision, and will help you discern whether this Vision Quest is right for you. If you have any interest in possibly attending Vision Quest 2023, please come along.

Vision Quest is an ancient ceremony to realize our oneness with all things. It is a time to sit in Nature and revitalise our connection with Spirit. Some pray for a vision of their life’s work or an expansion or clarification, some vision to make a request, some to pray or to give gratitude, and some simply use this time to reconnect to the Earth Mother and the Universe.

We will be looking to hold Vision Quest 2023 ceremony itself in May or June 2023, exact dates TBD.
