THE GATHERING OF THE SHAMANS
Christy and I spent April 7-9 in Sedona at the second annual Gathering of the Shamans Event at the exquisite Sedona Mago Retreat Center in the presence of people who are not only teachers and visionaries, but also embodiments of LOVE and LIGHT and everything they teach. It was so humbling and magical to be in the presence of such wise human beings and feel the soul connection between them and the openness of their hearts to the 200+ attendees. I felt only LOVE emenating from them, and the desire to help lift the veils of illusion for all of us so we see spirit within us and see how we are all connected...how we are all truly ONE. I feel other's emotions quite intensely more and more, and the purity of what I felt from this group was incredible and touched me in ways that I feel will change the makeup of my life from the inside out. The call to action now is to embody that LOVE and BE LOVE. And be human at the same time, and accept ourselves and others without judgement. We just have to do our best, and keep going. Keep living and not be hard on ourselves when we have moments that appear to be less than elightened. But keep coming back to the LOVE.
We are in eternal gratitude for all of these teachers, and Randy Davila and Vicki Higgins.
Don Miguel Ruiz
Don Miguel Ruiz embodies LOVE more than anyone I have had the pleasure of meeing in my life. He is an incredible story-teller, and through easy to read parables in The Four Agreements, Mastery of Love, and The Voice of Knowedge (and his many other books) he imparts practical wisdom to transform our lives and relationships.
The LOVE Bunch
Each of the teachers this weekend carried precious wisdom forth in their own way. Some of them are stalkers...some are dreamers...each style of teaching gave a different filter on the Toltec wisdom so that we could really experience it with our minds and our hearts and allow it to integrate with our spirits.
Christy and Nea
Christy and I had the opportunity to walk off the grounds to a beautiful cave overlooking the magical Sedona landsacape...a reminder of the importance of tapping into the natural energies of the land. Sometimes the best way to connect is to just touch the earth and be with her.
WALK THE LABRYTH MEDITATION
Gracing the gorgeous grounds of the Sedona Mago Retreat Center is an immaculate labarynth. The setting makes you feel like you were touching spirit with every cell of your being. Our friend, Paul shared a simple labaryth meditation with us that you could really do anywhere. Select 3 rocks and set the intent that each rock represents a problem in your life that you want to solve, or something you have been holding onto that you want to let go of. Walk the labaryth in silence, meditating on these things and how you have grown from them, and feel gratitude for them. Leave them behind in the center of the labaryth, bless them as you do, and send them to the light. Pick up three new stones there and meditate on what you want to bring into your life, what you want to manifest for the year. Meditate on these in silence as you walk out of the labarynth, and feel gratitude in your heart.
FIREWALKING - IT'S POSSIBLE
HeatherAsh Amara has given me one of the greatest gifts I have ever received in my life. Through her inspirational and uplifting coaching, she helped me and 200 others sucessfully walk across hot coals to push the boundaries of what we thought we knew about what is possible in life. I have found that in the year since se doing this, life's challenges look completely different now. If we can walk on fire without getting burned, what else can we do that we thought we could not? This has been fertile ground for the most incredible soul-growth for me.
