New Moon Ceremony: Sacred Activism
August 29 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm MDT
EXTENDING CARE TO THE VULNERABLE FROM THE INNER SANCTUARY OF THE HEART
LED BY: Dr. Diana Quinn Ink’lach
This new moon brings an upgrade to the operating system of the physical body and to the planet, opening up new ways of thinking, working, and communicating. Bringing innovation to our conscious awareness can revolutionize how we relate to and shape the world. In this month’s new moon ceremony, we’ll clear out old patterns and thought forms to make room for something new, and anchor in the revelatory potential of this Uranian-influenced new moon. We’ll then offer shamanic support to those who are most affected by the instability that accompanies turbulence and rapid change: refugees, asylum seekers, and survivors of climate disaster, political violence, and persecution.
PART ONE – INVOCATION AND CLEARING
We invite assistance from our allies to break up patterns that restrict our hearts, confine our creativity, and limit our thinking. Assisted by the rattle and tobacco, we will engage in a Toltec breathwork practice to illuminate our consciousness with the sun and release the shadow. We will cultivate the inner sanctuary of the heart.
PART TWO – ANCHORING AND THE WORK
Collectively we will anchor in revolutionary consciousness, and transition to being of service. Through a drum journey we will offer attention and care, with the support of the elementals and our allies, to vulnerable human and more-than-human beings. Through the inner sanctuary of the heart, we send care to our entire human family, including those who have been enveloped by hatred and fear.
PART THREE – GRATITUDE, AND LETTING GO
In these turbulent times, transition is inevitable, a “just” transition is not.
