Happy Equinox! May this be a time of balance within and without for you. Open Heart Circle meets Thursday, September 29. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and we begin at 7. We will explore the kinds of pilgrimages that we are on. Where is your heart leading you? What does it mean to be a pilgrim? Come with this question in your heart, and bring a rock the size of your heart. We will journey; and we will engage in a Native American practice called "Talking Rock." This is a practice of divination that relies on the willingness of spirit to speak through Nature. Even the stones beneath your feet speak, when you are on pilgrimage! Perhaps you will be inspired to take the rock home, and to paint it with the message you receive from spirit. In any case, you'll be going home with a gift of the season: a small rock painted by my friend, Susan! Bring a journal, a drum, and an eye-cover. $10 donation is suggested, but not required. This is a good month to come if you are not experienced in journeying (and even if you are). Talking Rock is a lovely practice that, once learned, can extend to all our relations in the natural world. Please RSVP if you plan to attend, so that we may hold space for you. I hope to see you then!
