Kacey welcomed everyone to the event.
We started, as we now start each event, with a gorgeous blessing from Demitra.
Kacey cleared our chakras in SUCH a soothing and beautiful way. Her voice is so melodic it is a treat to listen to her in her Reiki mode.
Kacey then led us in a writing exercise to make our intentions very clear. The basket in the photo above holds our words. It was breathtaking to share the intentions of 29 women!
Patti Pelican led us on a guided meditation taking us from a cluttered place in our home through sorting, separating, tossing, keeping, and ultimately making that same chaotic place a serene, zen like place in our home. Funny, relevant, practical tips that helped me make one teensy change in my kitchen, at least.
We were treated to the OH, so beautiful talent of Snatam Kaur's "Long Time Sun" - eyes closed, sun shining in, sheer blissfulness.
all love surround you,
and the pure light within you,
guide your way on.
We enjoyed another delicious and nourishing lunch from B&L Deli in Cold Spring. Do give them a try if you are in the area!
After lunch, I asked each person to introduce themselves. I spoke about how my life is a circle. I was thrilled to share my friend Kathryn Costa's inspiring 100 Mandalas challenge. (I urge you to check it out as well!) I printed THIS mandala to share.
Here is Kathryn's beautiful description:
Thirty-four artists from 11 countries around the world submitted a “petal” to create this beautiful lotus mandala. Each petal of the flower is infused with positive energy and a positive intention by the artist. “Love” is at the center of all positive intentions. The result is a powerful symbol.
We created the Girl Scout Friendship Ring. We felt the love from each woman pass to the next woman in an imagined beautiful white light, from heart to heart.
We sang loudly and proudly with Harry Chapin and had a hug fest.
Demitra spoke to us about the spring equinox and the power and beauty of the earth. She shared that we must work together to create a harmonious planet since we are all in this together.
At the end, our intimate gathering was treated to a private concert from the extraordinarily talented Daisy Jopling. JUST FOR US! Daisy will be at The Winery at St. George on April 1. Info HERE.
I am grateful to be a part of these women's lives even if it is just for an afternoon.
There is always a friend to made, a nugget to be shared, and something to be gleaned in a way that makes your heart happy. I thank the stars Demitra tells me about each and every time we get a chance to present these events. It is an honor and a privledge to be a part of each woman's Sunday.
Sunrise and sundown;
Moon rolls thru the nighttime;
Till the daybreak comes around.
All my life's a circle;
But I can't tell you why;
Season's spinning round again;
The years keep rollin' by.
