UK Spring Equinox Ceremony Day
24th March 2018
Dunbar, Scotland

The Center recently held a UK Winter Dreaming Ceremony in Scotland, where we spent time with Mother Earth to rest, to restore and to replenish ourselves as we moved into readiness for the year ahead. The people looked back over the year gone by, sought the learning from this review and ceremonially let go of those aspects of their lives that they felt no longer served them.

They then gathered their dreaming seeds in preparation for springtime when they will, metaphorically, plant these blessed intentions in the garden of their consciousness. It was a truly transformational time, we were blessed with two feet of snow and the contrast between this and the darkness of our Kiva time was magical.

We, Ann StarSong and David PrairieDancer, warmly invite you to come and ‘be’ with us for our next seasonal ceremony at the time of the Spring Equinox. This is when the days and nights are of equal length.  Mother Earth awakens from the slumber of Winter as she responds to the increasing daylight and life begins to venture forth once again. Imagine the time in the morning when you awaken to the day, the first stretch that you take, is akin to this time. There is the sense of new possibilities combined with the deep joy of that stirring within that heralds awakening and opening to Life one more.

In the fast pace of 21st Century living,  we often need time to come out of our winter ‘hibernation’, to feel that stirring within us and to come to a deeper knowing of our unique purpose in this lifetime. Treating ourselves to time with the Mother Earth, in community with others and to hear her Wisdom is wonderfully restorative. To sit with the fire, to be by the ocean, to feel the ground beneath our feet and the wind in our hair all nuture us as we gently inquiry into what is needed to plant our dreaming seed in her fertile ground.

Harnessing the power of intention is deeply life affirming and supports bringing of our dreaming seeds into their fullness in the summer.  During this ceremony we will explore one of our Medicine Wheels called ‘The Territorues Map’. This Wheel comes from the tradition we carry called The Origin Teachings of the Delicate Lodge and its guidance will enable you take time to look into how your dreaming flows into each territory of you life.

We will then explore:

  • what might hold you back from stepping fully into your ability to respond to life,
  • the choices you have including the challenging ones,
  • how to discern a balanced view of each choice by accessing your heart-mind knowing,
  • flow with your Will, and touching into the Divine Will, for the actions you wish to take.
We will be hosting the day at our home in the beautiful town of Dunbar (below) with its wonderful shoreline. To join us for the day please register here. If you have any questions please feel free to contact AnnStarSong at ann@ctew20.org
