Our New Guidelines for In Person Sunday Service
SUMMER SOLSTICE SERVICE
with Dawn Barnett
JUNE 20, 2021
This is Live and in person at the Center
AND Live-Streamed on YouTube
If you plan to attend the service in person you are required to make a reservation and follow the guidelines of the Board of Trustees outlined on the SCHEDULE page.
Please join us in person or by live stream as Dawn leads a ceremony in observance of
the 2021 summer solstice this Sunday. She will share the wisdom she has gleaned from decades of study and practice. Participants will be invited to go on a shamanic journey, a personal meditative experience which includes a guided visualization and drumbeats of a certain rhythm, intended to induce an altered state of consciousness.
According to Dawn's study of indigenous wisdom, the summer solstice is the ideal time to connect with the archetype of the Healer, that aspect of ourselves that demonstrates the principle of paying attention to what has heart and meaning. The season supports our ability to access the human resource of love.
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”; one year of shamanic training, including drum making, with artist and teacher Ellen Fishburn; 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 solstice and equinox ceremonies for New Thought Center of Hawaii for since 1994. During the pandemic, the services were either pre-recorded or live-streamed. We are happy to offer the option of attending in person this week, but with precautions. The service will be held on the lanai to allow more space between people, and better air flow. Please plan to wear a mask, and, if possible bring your own floor mat and drum.
The program will be live-streamed via the New Thought YouTube channel on June 20, beginning with drumming at 9:45. It will be an extended service lasting approximately 2 hours. If you are participating remotely, you can drum along with Dawn during the pre-service virtual drum circle, and create a space in your home for a personal equinox journey. A video will be available on the New Thought channel the following day. Use this link to the channel ID to tune in to the live stream, or to access the video:
This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year's threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future;
the place of caught breath.
