Have you ever been curious about what goes on at a Full Moon Ritual?
Have you ever been to and/or lead a Full Moon Ritual?
Now in 2013, you have the opportunity to join live or watch the recording!
(The Moon dates and times are at the end of this post, I suggest bookmarking this)


I would love for you to be a part of Co-creating with Community each months Ritual!!

Why?
Besides the intent to connect with the youth and children through a contribution of songs
To me, honoring the Full moon with ritual, is the highest expression of what Feminine Spirituality really means. Ritual is within the word Spiritual, and at the time of the Full moon we create sacred space to remind us of who we are. Spirit in Body.

Structure with Spontaneity

To create the sacred space, we sing to the Grandmothers of the 4 directions, we visualize pulling down the energy of the moon to fill and encircle us with healing energy, and then send it out to the world. A card is picked for the month and I may be offering the Yoga Cosmic Breath energy tool in the months to come.

The spontaneity comes from the contribution of the songs, chants, drumming, rattles, and any other way merriment wants to reveal itself….we just create the space and be open to the Divine Creative flow.

For Example

The songs that we recorded in Jan. had some songs for children, we opened with Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and another we sang was itsy, bitsy spider  along with the hand movements. Then I taught some Sacred Songs which always weaves the beauty of words into vibrations of magic when song under the influence of the Moon.
Healers and Wisewoman have been using the full moon for generations for blessings, askings and giving thanks by using chants and songs to vocally project vibrations into the Universe to actualize the force of attraction.

 

What if you could contribute a song or chant and dedicate it to someone, who would that be?523265_361445900629914_2134978644_n

Can you imagine the extra blessings come from the group energy as each person is held in a loving space as they sing on behalf of:

Their children, child, grandchildren, unborn child/grandchildren,

Mother, Father, Grandparent, brother, sister, lover, friend, mentor..etc.

And it is recorded and shared with that person!! Do you think it would touch a persons heart. I know I would touched!

And if anytime throughout the month if the world gets to much for you and you feel you are out of balance, out of tune, or just feeling isolated and alone. Please come back to the Heart Centered space of our songs. To be reminded, We are all one in this Universe.

“We are the music makers,

And we are the dreamers of dreams,

Wandering by lone sea breakers,

And sitting by desolate streams;

World-losers and world-forsakers,

On whom the pale moon gleams:

Yet we are the movers and the shakers

Of the world forever it seems” ~John Williams 1849

Even if you don’t want to contribute a song the first time, please join us and lend your energy!

May these words from my friend Lynn Rose inspire you:

“What’s YOUR song? What’s important to YOU? What’s calling to you?…Don’t let anything hold you back, do everything in your power to move through what comes up so that you share all of who you are, all of who you’re meant to be and all you’re meant to express. I once was shut down & closed off. To be feeling fully alive now and to be able to express…is sheer JOY!

Bright Blessings and Big Love as we dream and sing in a new world together

Do you feel the call to bring your gifts and talents forth more strongly to make the world a better place?

You are not alone!

“In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.” — Wangari Maathai

I got called in the middle of Jan. to say “Yes” to a creative idea. From what appeared to be an, out of nowhere, like a lightning bolt of determination and passion to give my gifts in a Bigger way.

In the last post I shared the Vision: to give and gather songs during each Full Moon of 2013 to leave as a legacy for the children. 316621_2574196281219_1443664173_2973948_1025505106_n

The intent: Be The Voice, by contributing and collaborating together to let the children know we care.

Today, I want to share how you can access the recording of the songs and full moon ritual and the merriment and fun this interactive, intimate, platform provides.

I was more than a little “nervous”
 about bringing the Jan. Full Moon live
 
…because I  honestly didn’t know
whether I would 
be able to pull it off.
 It has taken me a couple of weeks to figure out how to write the details to view the recording at this new virtual platform.
I decided to make a instructional video, and it is in two parts.
The first video explains the vision with the (Map) tutorial to access the

recording after someone has signed up at the learn it live platform.

Step 1 ~ Sign up at virtual yoga studio

Step 2 ~ Watch this Video to Navigate to the first Session (Jan Full Moon)

Step 3 ~ Watch this video for quick back story of this mission and learn one of the songs

The meaning of merriment from wikipedia

These Full Moon Rituals are interactive
and you don’t even have to show up at
my doorstep in BC Canada…saving you time, money and energy.
Do you have a song or chant you can contribute?
When something is important enough you just fit it in.”

I am pleased to Announce Spring /09 the Release of my book-
“How to become a Golf Goddess; Embrace Sacred Play and Unlock the Hero within.”

 

Not just for golfers, my Goddess Sisters will love it too!

A common theme running throughout the upcoming Spiritual Golf Goddess book and the game of golf is the symbol of the circle. Learning the wisdom inherent in the circle can become a key to unlock the inner hero. In the coming years women will need to draw upon their own inner strength and courage to free themselves from society’s man-made laws and to turn back towards the lessons in nature and the natural rhythms and cycles that are within us and everything. Many women in my Goddess Yoga classes over the years failed to recognize  where the source of their suffering stemmed from. By guiding them back to ancient Goddess ways, found within the circle and the seasons, they returned to balance,  harmony, & a sense of coming home. Why do women not acknowledge these life cycles within themselves? Because we were taught to live in a  linear time-line society, we are conditioned to live this way, but this is counter to our true natures and we have suffered because of this.
There is a way to move away from the pain of separateness and reconnect back to viewing the earth and our bodies as hallowed ground.

This can happen through my new book which includes, powerful Yoga philosophies and poses(asanas), Goddess ancient Feminine mysteries (secrets) and creative play for life and golf that reconnects you to your self, spirit and nature.
This book is not only a practical How to Manual for Women that draws from a decade of teaching my unique programs, Yoga for Golf and Goddess Yoga but it is also part biography.
Part Biography A transformational path-

I describe through my adventures of trust I, an ordinary woman have had extraordinary experiences with the Divine Feminine and the ways I have found to become my own best friend and to find the courage to follow the Divine even when my logical mind was screaming at me to get back into my head.
How,  by blending the Goddess to the Symbols in the game, I have eventually fallen in tune with existence through many tests and trials which has lead to finding my own particular and unique way of expressing my gifts (in ways that have never existed before) through connecting the Divine Feminine energy to the game of golf.

“The game of golf is like the game of life…the goal is to develop to your highest potential and become self-governing!” -Margarit Brigham

Even if you never pick up a golf club you can learn the Goddess ways through the metaphors in blending, life, Goddesses, Golf, Nature and Yoga that this book touches upon and this blog name..sacred connections to everything…the sacred is within everything, spirit hangs out within the game of golf too!

And for the women who already play golf, this book reveals a new feminine model that will have you playing golf from a more heart-centered space developing more inspiring, meaningful and pleasureable games.(and lives)

Lets connect at my new site,
