"Fall Equinox Drumming Circle"
with Dawn Barnett
Community Potluck Luncheon follows at noon.
The Creative is the place where no one else has ever been.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
Dawn Barnett will lead an experiential program in observance of the fall equinox at New Thought Center this week. Participants will go on a shamanic journey, a personal meditative experience, which includes a guided visualization followed by the rapid beating of the drum, intended to induce an altered state of consciousness where one’s inner guidance is more easily accessible. Those who wish can come early (9:45) to participate in community drumming prior to the service.
According to Dawn's study of indigenous wisdom, the fall equinox is the ideal time to deepen our connection with the Teacher Archetype, representing the deep inner wisdom and knowing that we all have. The way of the teacher is guided by the principle of non-attachment; letting go and being open to any outcome. The fall season is also a time to connect with our ancestors, as they are believed by many indigenous people to be closest to us at this time of the year.
Dawn draws from several sources in creating this program: two years of shamanic foundational training with Angeles Arrien, author of several books, including “The Four-Fold Way”; and a year of shamanic training, including drum making, with artist and teacher Ellen Fishburn. Other sources are her training in hypnotherapy with David Quigley and Yukio Hasegawa; and the ceremonial practices of author, teacher and ceremonialist Sedonia Cahill with whom she studied for several months and also did a ten day vision quest in Death Valley, California. Dawn has been leading quarterly programs at New Thought for 20 years.
This will be an extended service, lasting from 10 am until noon. Please note: Dawn’s program will take place in the Honua Room, and the Crystal Bowl Meditation, 9 to 9:30, will be on the adjacent lanai this week only
