During this time of rapid change on our Mother Earth…it is time to gather in sacred space to find hope, peace, love, justice and solutions. 
We gather to celebrate and give thanks for all the beauty that surrounds us.
” May we have peace on earth and let it begin with me.” ~traditional song~
Arrive Scent free at 7pm, $20 in cash, bring a drum or rhythm instrument, a small container of water, and a snack to share with the tribe …if you so choose.  Thanks!
 We are at the apex of Summer…with the rays of the Sun heating up the day and our bodies.   We see fleeting images of fireflies in the meadows…they look like the fairies. 
Our senses fill with the taste of a Sun warmed strawberry or the smell of a fresh cut watermelon.
This is Mother Nature’s gift to us all and we must never take it for granted.  Let us gather in gratitude and in awe of all the beauty and abundance that surrounds us and make magic on this Mid Summer’s Night.
AS WE GATHER TO DRUM, DANCE & CHANT… in the four directions of the Wheel of Life as we also honor the summer Goddesses and Gods and the Realm of the Fae.
Native American traditions teach us that each of the four directions carry certain elements, qualities and totems …
EAST- AIR-MENTAL- WINGED ONES  
SOUTH- FIRE-PASSION,- SNAKE & LIZARD
WEST- WATER-EMOTION – FRESH & SALT WATER BEINGS
NORTH -EARTH-PHYSICAL  BODY- FOUR LEGGEDS

We will also, send prayers to the four corners of the Earth for Global Healing and healing For All Our Relations.

 We will invoke and celebrate the Grandmothers, the Grandfathers, and the Ancestors as we sing, drum, and dance them awake into our circle and into our lives.

 We will learn how to best be in balance together in a tribal way – once again bringing forth the old wisdom into our present time, where it is needed for healing our hearts, minds, and the global community.

Please, bring bells, shakers, rattles, and drums of all types and a small container of water to be blessed.
 Dave will bring his didgeridoos and we will tone and chant with this ancient, primal instrument and feel the deep vibrations of the Mother Earth and our own deep roots. 
Kathleen will help us bless the waters of the world.  So please bring a small container of your local water or water that you got from another place.
Leah will help hold the rhythms all night long and add her voice to the chants.
Gypsy will add her magic with songs from the “old ways”.
And the MOTHER DRUM will help keep the ONE or the Heartbeat throughout our journey.  
Some of you will have the chance to play the Mother Drum if you so choose.

This ceremony teaches us the power of deep listening and helps take us deeper into community to find our commonUNITY… as we heal ourselves and our Mother Earth … For All Our Relations-A-Ho!
