Call-to-Action

TENDING SOLSTICE FIRE

Led by Nancy Lankston

Monday, June 24th
Cost: FREE

 

The wheel of the year turns toward Summer Solstice here in the northern hemisphere. What a perfect time to tend to the elemental fire of the sacred Sun that warms us and makes life possible on Earth.
 
Join Nancy Lankston in a guided journey to  honor and tend to elemental fire and sunlight.

 

For this Call-to-Action we are doing it recorded, rather than live. So, an email with the link to access the recording will be sent out on June 24th in the morning. If you are not already on our email list and would like to receive the link, please enter your information in the form to the right.

 

HOW TO PREPARE

Create a sacred ceremonial space in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed by other people, or distractions. You could create an altar, light a candle, and have your shamanic tools nearby if you wish. You are welcome to rattle or drum along during the shamanic journey process. If you have anything to share from your journey, please put that in the comments on the page of the recording.

FAQs

What does an SWB process look like?
The general outline of an SWB process is as follows. This process is facilitated by one of our trained community leaders and does not require experience to be a participant.

  • Introducing the issue that requires tending
  • Opening, protecting and calling allies into a ceremonial container
  • Journeying from a place of neutrality for instructions
  • Tending to the situation based on the information given
  • Blessing what was tended
  • Thanking and releasing the container

“When we prepare for a tending process, we journey to the spirit of the situation to look for guidance. This might be the spirit of the land, the soul of a community, country or the spirit of a culture, or collective consciousness. We ask the simple question, “What would be the most effective way that we can be of service?”. Sometimes the answer is clear. Sometimes it is unexpected. Sometimes the answer is to not do any ceremony at all.

 

Because we conduct this journey with the assistance of our tried and true spirit friends of kindness, we can trust that their answers come from a place more resourced than we could find on our own. This sacred listening practice is revelatory and healing to all beings. As we are all connected through unseen webs, answering the call for healing in this way brings healing to ourselves as well, through a beautiful circle of offering and gratitude. Blessed be.”

~Provided by SWB Community Leader Tasara Jen Stone

What tools are recommended to use during an SWB process?
We suggest being in a ceremonial space, setting up an altar and lighting a candle. You may also want to have any tools you already work with such as a drum, rattle, feathers, tobacco, crystals, etc.
