VISION QUEST WEEKEND
SPIRIT CANOE LODGE, Warrensville, NC
This extended weekend is open to apprentices and non-apprentices. The timing of your ceremony or teaching requests will be discussed as soon as you contact me to register. Some participants will arrive as early as Thursday. Night on the Mountain of Fear Vision-questers must arrive Friday evening. Michael Star Mountain and Kelly Jumping Mouse will be guiding you in the appropriate ceremonies.
These ceremonies from the first 3 gateways of the Sweet Medicine Sun Dance Path are open to all seekers and Apprentices as a way to gain maturity, self discipline, and return to your naturalness….. to learn how not be at the affect of situations, tyrants, negative internal dialogue, and social conditioning that may keep us running in the same old karmic patterns...The lower self, the Shideh wants to keep everything the same and live in the comfort of what is known...living life through subjective filters of projection or past experience. The Hokkshideh, the higher self wants to make choices and decisions that bring about our potential, increased levels of consciousness, perception, and objectivity...risking the unknown for a better happier life...ceremony can lead to new dharmic patterns that create the change and beauty we long for.
Sunday, April 29th Full Moon Community Shamanic Purification Lodge @ 1pm:
This Lodge is open to the greater community and is an integration ceremony for the weekend participants. The Lodge increases our connection with the elements of creation, the worlds of Grandmother Earth, and purifies (emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually). The alchemy of this ceremony creates a safe space for us to let go of what no longer serves us and connect with Spirit to receive guidance and healing. When you rsvp I will send out detailed directions about how to prepare and what to bring for this ceremony on Sunday. A potluck is shared afterwards.
I look forward to our time together,
Kelly Jumping Mouse
