Today, I arrived again at Lakeside Retreats ready to co-teach a weekend of circle process to a small dedicated group who will arrive tomorrow evening for the first session of the six we’re offering from Friday through Sunday. This is exciting work for me, the real “next right thing” for what I offer to the world. Bev and I have gone over our various parts and feel quite good that this weekend will be rich and wondrous for all present (ourselves included!).
For the past week and a half, I’ve dreamt of circle methodology-related things every night. The dreamweavers are working overtime to ensure that I’m aligned with the archetype of Circle. Sometimes the dreams have shown how not to be in circle, sometimes they’ve taught deep, non-verbal stuff about how to be in council mind. A few of the dream beings in circle have been human and others have been from the more-than-human community. I pray to Life that I’ve integrated the images and teachings of circle in dream. Blessed Be!
I’d like to take a moment to honour people who have inspired and mentored my circle experience. Blessings be to Christina Baldwin, Ann Linnea, and Deena Metzger. Equal blessings to the folks of the Whidbey Island Circle Practicum of 2007 and the Canterbury Hills Circle Practicum of 2008. Gratitude also to my spiritual brothers and sisters in the Toronto Daré as well as those in the Body-Mind-Spirit-‘preneurs group. You’re all beautiful and powerful people who make a great difference in our world. Thank you!
