The unity of the Spirit is kept through the bonds of peace. Other than peace suggests confusion and separation. The Spirit is a perfect unit and we harmonize with this unity when we maintain a state of peace in our minds.
"Summer Solstice Drumming Ceremony"
Presented by Dawn Barnett
Sunday, June 17, 2018
Extended service 9:45 to 12:00
Gourmet Potluck Luncheon follows service
Dawn Barnett will lead an experiential program in observance of the summer solstice this week. Participants will 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. Please join us in starting the service with half an hour of community drumming, which begins at 9:45. (Some drums and rattles provided) This will be an extended service, lasting from until noon.
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 resources of love and compassion.
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.
The solstice ceremony will take place in the Honua Room, adjacent to the lanai of Building C, Pualani Terrace in Kealakekua.
